Magazines- They Ain't What They Used To Be pt 2. (Brigitte Bardot Special Edition)

The Sleaze mags loved Bebe.... and she gave 'em plenty of ammo, like three suicide attempts the art of the pout (no plastic surgery for Bebe!) a Brazilian TV Guide cover Got this at a Paris, Flea Market in '81 Great moments in passion! too big for the scanner! While I was pickin' through old music mags I found some misfiled Bardot ephemera that I thought I'd post today as a way to buy time while I work on the next two blogs (and probably won't finish until mid-week). Enjoy. Next subjects will probably be old music mags and Rene Hall.

No, Bebe wasn't much of a singer, but she sure could dance...ie the dance sequence at the end of "...And God Created Women". She wasn't a bad flamenco style guitarist either....

ha, no i meant ms. jolie-pitt. were you a "sopranos" fan? one of the funniest bits was uncle junior fantasizing about angie dickinson.

i look forward to your rene hall post. i love "twitchy"! a 50s instrumental that could be played note for note by a punk band and wouldn't sound a bit out of place.

It may be awhile, I need a copy of "2 guitar boogie" on RCA to finish it off. Twitchy is actually Willie Joe Duncan playing his one string Unitar, the same tune shows up in slightly different form as the b-side of Bob Froggy Landers' Cherokee Dance (Specialty) as Unitar Rock. Willie Joe was from Chicago and used to play with Jimmy Reed until heading west.
