I am a lover of 50s Kitsch, Old Hollywood Glamour, Vintage Sleaze, Vintage Cheesecake, Pin ups, Atomic Era style, fashion and design. About half of the images I post BELONG TO ME via the plethora of vintage magazines I own and a rickety old scanner on it's last legs, the other half DO NOT BELONG TO ME and are images I have found all over the net. I will make EVERY EFFORT to attribute an image that I post to it's proper owner. 95 percent of what I post are images from the 1950s and 60s, 4 percent are from earlier on and the remaining 1 percent can be anything that happens to float my boat at the moment. I Do post semi nude and nude images and what I consider to be "soft" fetish stuff mostly by Irving Klaw. I have had one or two requests asking me not to post those images. I have decided that I will continue to do so. I might add that I will NEVER post an image that I find to be HARD CORE, DISGUSTING, SHOCKING OR FRIGHTENING, there are more than enough of those images around already. Please enjoy your stay! Oh and, by the way...the search button on this blog actually WORKS!
Patti Page, 1958
We lost someone special yesterday. She was the best-selling female artist of the 1950s and one of the best known female traditional pop artists of all time, “The Singin’ Rage, Miss Patti Page!” She, unlike most singers of Pop music, blended styles of country music into many of her popular songs. This enabled her music to climb high atop the Billboard Country Chart as well. When Rock and Roll became popular, traditional pop music became less so. Page was one of the few pop singers who sustained her success and continued to belt out major hits into the mid 1960s. The 1970s saw Patti shift her career towards country music and chart the country charts until 1982. Patti’s signature song was the Tennessee Waltz, recorded in 1950. It was one of the biggest selling singles of the 20th century and one of two official state songs of Tennessee. Page was due to be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in February. She was 85 years old. Goodbye, Patti.
