@Gary: That guy talking before reminded me of this. It was used to end the TV transmissions late at night in some Brazil TV channels back in the 60s. My parents still remember it fondly.

This is a great track to start. Need to look for that compilation...

And Asha was married to RD Burman, so there's that as well :)

Until 4:36 my time, I had no idea LM and AB were sisters. Wow, indeed.

@Gary that is some pedigree!

While Lata never married him, she said she was inspired to sing because she fell in love watching KL Saigal

Longing for the past has been on my wishlist for a long while. I'm just too damn cheap to splurge on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/4/15 8:02pm cklequ:

Avatar Wed. 3/4/15 8:02pm Gary:

Oh, it's worth it, Cklequ. The book alone ... but, holy crap ... the music!

"No One Cares". Such an appropriately discouraging title.
  Wed. 3/4/15 8:32pm Dean:

Marvelous. An Italian Yvette Guilbert?
Avatar Wed. 3/4/15 8:35pm Gary:

Here's the CD I played it from, Dean, along with a bit of info in Italian: www.librerianeapolis.it...
  Wed. 3/4/15 8:38pm Dean:

The blurb depicts her as a feminist, an eccentric, scandalous. So, yes, an Yvette Guilbert, a Conchita Supervia, a Josephine Baker. Beautiful, stirring stuff.
Avatar Wed. 3/4/15 8:39pm Gary:

That makes me so happy to read, Dean!

I remember the Tower at E. 4th. Yeah, somehow it wasn't as interesting as some of the other locations, like in D.C. I never imagined that Other Music would be nearly the last one standing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/4/15 9:36pm northguineahills:

I think I went to Tower Recs maybe 7 times. Made out like a bandit when they had a fire sale on their vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/4/15 9:36pm cklequ:

I remember going to Tower in NY, and then going across the street to Other Music to find other music.

i mostly remember going to Tower Records in Boston to buy magazines
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/4/15 9:51pm northguineahills:

Would the Islanders be considered from Hawai'i, rather then the US before 1959, as denonyms from American territories today like Puerto Rico and Guam?
Avatar Wed. 3/4/15 9:53pm Gary:

Good point, NGH -- I changed it!
Avatar    Wed. 3/4/15 9:59pm hyde:
