I was fortunate to win the recording of Pope Paul VI's visit to New York (shown below). The recording is in absolute mint condition. I had my fingers crossed during the five days of the auction, hoping to win this album. It will restore all of my memories of the event on that day when I was one of those thousands that saw him on his way to the Vatican Pavilion, Oct. 4, 1965.

Just click on the link to the sample within the eBay description.

You'll surely want to save this one to your iPod.

Here's a strange album- "National Anthems Sung By Your Friends At The Fair".

The cover pictures imply that somebody walked around the World's Fair International Area, sticking a microphone in the face of various VIP hosts or hostesses, attendants, or gift shop clerks, asking them if they can sing their National Anthem. Kind of like a Jay Leno "on the street" test.

Actually it was probably recorded in a studio- but who knows?

<!--coloro:blue--><span style="color:blue"><!--/coloro-->Hmmm..

I'm not sure my friends of 1964-65 would have contributed a credible version of the national anthem.

My best friend at the time was a girl named Henrietta. She knew only a few songs. Most were Christmas carols, one began "tra la la boom de ay", after a few bars of which; she'd kick one in the pants.

It's a good thing that not everyone was asked to sing a song. Who knows what a young Rosanne Barr, or Henrietta, might have done if asked to sing?

Rose, who does understand that only adults were asked to sing on this album, but can't help wondering what truly random queries might have produced.<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

We used this record in the Flushing Town Hall show a few years ago. The Something for Everyone show that Marc Miller did. I think Marc or maybe Peter Warner had it. It was a standard mid 60's kind of Jan and Dean sounding kind of thing. Not bad actually. we put it on a loop with a bunch of music from the Fair.
