Ladies

27 05 2010

As we get ready for our Summer Record + CD Sale a LOT of very nice folks have donated a LOT of very nice recordings.  From a-way upstate came a musty but great pile from the barn of James Dybas.  Of note are the eleven Olga Guillot LPs in pristine condition.  Grammy winning Olga was Cuba’s “Reina del bolero” – and a highly emotional one at that, most songs tearily and romantically delivered.   She sang with the quartet Siboney, began her solo career in 1945 performing at Havana’s Zombie Club, and was the first Latin artist to play Carnegie Hall!  Whata gal.

Here’s the new adds to our five-strong Olgaography:

• Bravo!!  (Musart, USA, DM 12561, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Campanitas de Cristal  (Adria, USA, AP 3, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Enamorada  (Adria, USA, AP 30, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Epoca de Oro, Vol 1  (Adria, USA, AP 1, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Gracias America  (Musart, USA, DM 1256, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• La Insuperable Olga  (Puchito, USA, MLP 580, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp     , n.d.)
• Lo Mejor de Olga Guillot  (Puchito, USA, MLP 564, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp     , n.d.)
• MAS Exitos Romanticos con Olga Guillot  (Musart, USA, DM 1060, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Olga (Musart, USA, DM 672, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Olga Guillot Interpreta Borinquen  (Musart, USA, DM 1384, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)
• Recúerdame  (Musart, USA, DM 1536, 12″, vinyl disc-Lp, n.d.)

Dean Taucher, ARC supporter and TV insider, often asks visiting celebs to sign classic LPs, then donates them to the ARC.  His latest gift includes 3 comely LPs signed by comely Ann Margaret, Sharon Stone and Isabelle Huppert.  Nice…

And since it’s Memorial Day, let’s remember…
