Not quite sure what this is, but it includes something about the Pope's visit to the World's Fair....

A Google seach reveals that this 45 was issued in 1964.

Wilbert (sometimes billed as Wilbur) Harrison is best known for his 1959 hit single Kansas City.

Not certain where to post this...

Peter Asher of, Peter & Gordon fame, played the 1964 New York World’s Fair and has some – amusing recollections of his performance which he recalls in Mitchell Smith’s book, Off the Record : An Oral History of Popular Music.

Apparently, the young ladies out to see him and band mate Gordon Waller, were eager enough to accompany them on stage, that they trod across the fountain area, ripping off their cloths as they went, and climbed up on stage.

-- I am woman, hear me roar…

Off the Record : An Oral History of Popular Music

by Joe/Fink, Mitchell Smith

Publisher: Warner Books; Reprint edition (November 1, 1989)

Language: English

Singing Mothers?!!! Sorry, but that sounds like a rock band to me!

Absolutely; they were with Frank Zappa, weren't they?

The original Columbia version of "To Broadway With Love" (with many photos) appers on my CD-ROM "VAULT III". It was transferred from analog to MP3 digital by that famous NYWF archivist, Bill Cotter.

The new CD of "To Broadway with Love" appears to be out. I see it on eBay for a wide range of prices. I don't have any connection with the CD but thought folks might be interested.

"Inside this rustic looking restaurant, chuck wagon steak was the big item on the menu while ***can-can girls*** would provide the entertainment."

Hey, what happened to the old Lake Amusement Area thread and my msg. from last year re my

1964 can-can-girlfriend?

P.S. Interesting movie from the 50's by Renoir: "French Can Can"

You know, I'm probably one of the few guys around this place who actually dated a can can girl from the Texas Music Hall at the NYWF. A Hawaiian girl from the nearby Hawaiian pavilion, too. I met them in '64 because those places were on my Glide-a-Ride route.

Larry, that just goes to show you how girls are attracted to guys that drive cool vehicles. I was not so lucky... the only girl I met on the Fairgrounds was Jayne Mansfield and she was all set with her pink, tail-finned Cadillac. I had a cheap Olds station wagon with a stick shift. Plus, she was already married which complicated matters.

Good to hear from you again on the PTU board.

I had a Ford Pinto once. Everyone used to run away from me. :(

Ray, that GAR was the best girl magnet I ever had. I recall tooling around the Fair one sultry evening with a girl sitting on each side of my cab. Good thing Mr Peterson or the Pinkerton kops didn't see me, huh?

Shame that can can girls have become so scarce in recent centuries...

But, Ray, vehicles just don't come any cooler than your Segway. I've never seen any other vehicle that attracts so much attention!

Just placed my order for this and the official release of the Disney Fair CD set from Amazon. Even though the quality of the versions I've had thanks to Bill are great, I think it's always worth supporting an official release of this kind of material. I honestly never expected the "To Broadway With Love" cast album to make it to a CD issue.

My copies arrived yesterday and the "To Broadway With Love" CD has some great new liner notes by theater critic Peter Filichia that documents more about the work the composers Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock did on the program's original material (and also noting with amusement how the show's number that predicted a musical in the future about Mata Hari did come to pass with one that flopped on the road in its pre-Broadway tryout).

The packaging on the Disney Fair CD set is outstanding and getting both on the same day in the same set was kind of like a feeling of coming back with souvenirs from the Fair on the same say as a visit. :)
