I thought I had everything by Carmen McRae, but I’ve never heard this track! Thanks for hipping me to it, Joe. Sounds like it’s from her Columbia era. She’s in peak voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am McGroovey:

I went and googled around to figure out when the Sesame Street aliens radio skit was first broadcast, to see whether scared me when I was little or something. But no, it was 1979. I was 16, and (more importantly) when I was a teenager I was living beyond the range of any PBS station.

So maybe it's just Fear of Mondays.

I know it's wrong, but I can't help but think of Stan Freberg when I hear Johnnie Ray.

John, you've prob heard it, but “Live At The Dug,” where she’s just playing piano and singing, is just fabulous

I like that bit in the beginning of Grace of My Heart where Edna gets that news that record companies are no longer interested in girl singers of the kind being highlighted in this set.

  9:26am Tom from Stirling.:

I got a chance to meet Tony Bennet and I asked him what was the first record he owned that he couldn’t get enough of. He answered Mel Tormé and the Meltones

  9:38am John in Phoenixville:

I think “The Kay Starr Style” was a “pick-up” album of singles (and maybe leftovers), hence all the arrangers. Harold Mooney did that track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am Webhamster Henry:

"The Gentleman Is a Dope" is a show tune from the Roger & Hammerstein flop "Allegro". This has been an Acid Jazz Hands moment.

@R Rabbit. We saw ELP just before Tarkus was released they did both albums, all songs.

Hey, Joe. Ya gotta know that someone's played George Burns 'Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite' before.

We met when I went into the record shop in the Toadstool and said to the tattooed man behind the counter that whoever is stocking the jazz is doing a fantastic job. "That's me!" he said. We've been friends ever since, going back to 2004. Really nice folks. He appears to be knocking it out of the park with this Nova Arts thing. That's one of the few things I miss about New Hampshire.
