watcha listening to, profcrispy?
well as i may have indicated, i have obtained a turntable that converts lps into digital files. so i have been dragging boxes out of the attic and rediscovering this and that.
one of the best rock albums ever made is something you never heard of and can't obtain: the eponymous "blue angel" (1980). the singer of this retro band (girl groups, rockabilly etc) was the transcendent cyndi lauper, before she made it big. i interviewed her in london in 1983 for melody maker, as she was touring the multi-platinum "she's so unusual." i told her much i loved blue angel, that i had been listening to it every day for a couple of years. she was so happy to hear this, and i think so sorry that she wasn't still blue angel's singer, that she'd left these boys behind. anyway, she was also the sweetest interview subject ever: so nice, just decent and real, with the heaviest brooklyn accent ever achieved.
