Both the Angela Lansbury/George Hearn and Patti LuPone/George Hearn versions were taped for PBS broadcast and are available on DVD.  You could also check your local library to see if they have copies, or if not, you might be able to get it through Interlibrary Loan. :)

Checking ODIN right now...

Avoid the Patti version! Although an improved performance from the one recorded in New York (on CD), she is still "all over the place".

I know you're a fan George but the perfomance is little better than acceptable IMHO.  I prefer her performance in Candide where she really performed as herself - and did it well  - for laughs.

There were references to gaelic in "Dance of The Vampires".

As for Amy's Bread Monkey Cake vs. Hummingbird Cake, well...

Monkey Cake has walnuts.  Hummingbird Cake has pecans.  (That one recipe stating that either one works and that they taste the same...  Umm.. No. ;) )  Hummingbird Cake tends to be a bit more "spicier" in my experience.  Magnolia Bakery will sometimes feature Hummingbird Cake and/or Hummingbird Cake Cupcakes, and it's definitely different from Amy's Bread Monkey Cake.  Just sayin'...  ;D

Tom,

Have you seen the documentary called THE BLOOD IS STRONG or STORY OF ENGLISH?

I agree with DR tomovoz, though the Patti version does have Victoria Clark's Beggar Woman, rather than Audra McDonald's - there are some who would consider that a plus.  The dvd of Patti's does also boast a rather rich, booming DTS soundtrack.

Of course the line was written by an American who didn't know his "hung" from his "hanged" so I guess there is not much creedence to the line.

Story of English had some interesting discussions on how english developed and on the different dialects and groups today.

I also like Bill Bryson's book on the topic.

Hmm.. I thought they always tasted and looked like walnuts, but their website say pecans... Hmm...  Well, in any case... Monkey Cake does not taste like Hummingbird Cake.  And vice versa.

I should consult with DR Jason since he's a Hummingbird Cake aficionado - and he was the one who pointed out to me that the Magnolia Bakery's Hummingbird Cake had pecans as opposed to walnuts.

Of course I should be thankful it is not Tiny Tim's version of "Mickey the Monkey" that is there.

We are in for the night, after a lovlier than lovely dinner at Hourglass Tavern on 46th St. with Doug and Jon.

Would y'all like to know what's in the refrigerator here at the apartment?

Perhaps there are no more bagpipe majors.

Traditionally, the pipers will play at home football games as well as commencement. . .
