Lena Horne - Swinging - Coronet Records CX-165

Preparing to attend The 10th Texas Pinball Convention in Grapevine & just wanted to give some love to all the female MC's. Why? Well, to be honest we'll be lucky to get 5% female turnout. Pinball seems to be one of those things (kind of like crate digging) that's wired into the male psyche just a tad harder than the female one. Corrections welcome. Anyway, look for some female lovin' posts for the next two weeks or so. As Alicia Keys said when she was here at last year - THANK YOU ALL STAR.

First up on the musical menu is Lena Horne - you've heard her live from 81 now reach back to the 50's ?? to hear some studio work from a top five MC of her era. For those that don't know, Lena set the standard & raised the flag in her day and beyond. RIP Liz Taylor.
