What on Eartha?!

Screen shot 2014-02-09 at 11.39.30 AMI met Eartha Kitt in 2003 at a promotional event that I produced for Meow Mix cat food.   We opened the world’s first restaurant for cats –The Meow Mix Cafe — and, we thought,  who’d be more purrrfect to host our grand opening than Eartha Kitt  who famously once pounced on the role of Catwoman on the Batman TV series in the sixties.  She was lovely, game for the fun and playing her role it to the hilt.  She walked the red carpet in a silver fur coat and did her famous coo and purr for the press and tv cameras over and over.  She held cats in her lap and stroked them with a mock evil smile and twinkle in her eyes.   Check out what a life ride she had — from Paris to Hollywood to the White House to the great White Way.    If you think coming out to shill for a cat food was beneath her consider that she also once did a TV commercial to promote the Steely Dan LP Aja.

A woman’s prerogative

Jo Ann Campbell SWE EP PS A

A rare EP that was only released in Sweden which features the extremely in-demand northern soul / new breed r&b / mod dancer “I Changed My Mind Jack” by Jo Ann Campbell.  One of the hottest floor fillers around.   Another answer song to Ray Charles’ “Hit the Road, Jack”   Juke Box Records (1962)

Shout Sister Shout!

Brita Borg  “Fat Mammy Brown”  Knappup Records  (Sweden)   Right to the LPCL Hall of Frames from LP cover lover Peter in Sweden!  “This is how Sweden was in the year of 1957. Britta Borg was a loved jazz singer with a very deep voice.  I found this 45rpm in a junkstore and paid 50 cents.  I have not seen it before.  Have about 3000 Lp´s many bought just for the cover so my collection is quiet mad.”
