Attack of the Killer Soundtrack - Episode 29
This week we are coming to you from VinylFest where on this the 50th anniversary of the hugely successful album Whipped Cream & Other Delights, we sit down and talk with Dolores Erickson. Delores is the woman featured on the cover of the album that eventually became a pop culture phenomena - as well as being one of the most recognizable (and often parodied) photographs in the world. And along the way, we also celebrate the amazing career of Herb Alpert as we build a soundtrack from his abundance of songs featured in movies over the years. Plus this week's co-host Yoko also works in some of her favorite soundtrack picks as well.
And as we try to figure out if it's legal in this state to make love to the camera, we also discuss... Eileen Ford, a class at Warner Brothers, cats sitting on your turntable, being introduced to Elvis Presley, lectures on swearing, I was just standing in my brassiere, choosing one girl from every high school, Stella Stevens, I won a contest, the art director for Capitol Records, brighten up your day with this band, a Bull Terrier, sometimes you've gotta squint on a roller coaster, I love his little quiff and his big chin, a lovable curmudgeon, Jerry Moss, predestined, a little bit of a heartbreak, skiing down a mountain, men like cats sometimes, The Everly Brothers, try not to fall in love when you hear this song, constructing the cotton, Steve Katz, being an art teacher, it seemed like in L.A., everyone had their businesses in their garages... they always made-over their garages... including Herb, I definitely learned rejection, It was just a lovely afternoon, a catamaran in a storm, very avant-garde records, being groomed, quit picking on Bill, he's such a sentimental person and for years... no one knew my name.
"It's unusual. It's like a little ghost... that follows me around. It's extraordinary really."
