Diet: -1 (49 pounds to go) Don't you just hate it when the bathroom scale becomes disoriented and starts going in the wrong direction?

Movie #1135: Rhythm & Blues Revue(1955, Leonard Kohn)

So, I got my wish. A musical with no plot at all. A few years back this would have been a treasure trove. We have performances by Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, Faye Adams, Big Joe Turner, Cab Calloway etc. However, in 2009, I'll bet you that all of this stuff can be found on YouTube. My faves: Ruth Brown, Big Joe Turner and Lionel Hampton. Thumbs down: all those deadly dull comedy routines.
