BECAUSE YOU ARE ALL WONDERFULLY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE…

So someone will inevitably be curious:

 

The banner for the site is Brenda Lee from 1960, my favorite photograph of a rock and roll performer. (Or maybe just my favorite photograph period.) I’m posting the full photo because the banner space only seems to allow for a cropped (and slightly dulled) version.

And because it’s staggeringly awesome.

  1. I’m not sure if she has ever had any live recordings released from that era. I suspect they didn’t call her Little Miss Dynamite for nothing though!…That’s the beauty of a great photograph though. It conveys a lot and also leaves a lot to the imagination.

  2. I am new to your blog, and enjoying it very much. This banner made me smile. I’m pleased to say that I guessed it was Brenda Lee. Her energy jumped out of our small, black and white screen the first time I saw her perform on television. There is so much about this picture that speaks of that era in music. Great memories, thank you!

  3. Hi Peggy. I’m glad you are enjoying the site and especially the banner…There’s something magical about wailing in high heels I guess! I first saw this in a collection of rock and roll photographs that Rolling Stone put out. I bet I looked at it twenty times before I even saw that saxaphone, hovering there in the dark. (lol)
