I listen to an online station called RAB Radio 1 which plays r&b songs from the 40s and 50s, and Louis Jordan's music definitely gets played there. I had heard of him when reading and researching the origins of rock 'n' roll, but until finding this station, I'd never heard of him. He's hilarious! If you and your readers want to find this station, it's in the radio section of itunes.

This is a good essay you have here! I had heard of Clyde McPhatter for quite awhile, but it wasn't until more recently I began listening to more of his music and that of some of his contemporaries. Like you, I felt that there might have been something left out of the official articles I've read about him. However one looks at this, it was ashame to lose a talent like him so young.

When I read this post, I was wondering where I had heard of Boze Hadleigh's name before. Apparently, it was because of Hollywood Lesbians and in particular, hearing how his interview with Barbara Stanwyck was unsuccessful. Regarding Tyrone Power, I was reading a book in which the author described him as feeling held back by his image; he wanted to be a more serious actor like his father. Interesting post on Romero. I believe you're not the only one who sees something in him; someone else said the same when refering to his performance in Oceans Eleven.

Seems as I answered my own question. Looking at his list of books it seems the book I was thinking of was Hollywood Lesbians. At least I had the correct author.

I thought it was Bankhead who said "Codeine and Bourbon."

I can't say I'm hugely familiar with the Fall, in fact, hardly familiar with them would be more like it, but I did purchase a recent recording in which they covered Funnel of Love by Wanda Jackson. Now if I can remember the name of that album...
Longtime follower of the blog, but a first time commenter: I heard this several months back, and it just proves imo that Richard Carpenter wasn't the best arranger for Karen Carpenter. I would've liked to have seen her work with somebody like Nelson Riddle.
