Also a friend from high school, elementary & jr high for Keith, drove an hour to meet us for lunch. She lives in the US but was staying with a sister who lives in England.  Up until a few years ago she didn't even know she had a sister.  It is great they have become close.

That's cool...and kind of sad that she didn't know that she had a sister after all this time.

She was rather shocked when she found out.  Her older sister knew about her.

That's kind of like what happened to my mom.  Her father left when she was a baby and went on to have another family.  Her younger half-brother somehow knew about her and eventually contacted her a couple of years ago.  My mom only knew that her father had left, and nothing else.  She was apprehensive about meeting him, but when he came here and they got to know each other, she was really glad that they did meet.  But she never knew, and was the older of all her other siblings.

The older sister was a war baby and then the father returned to the States.

I've been watching the new transfer of The Shining.  I don't have 4K and I'm told that looks great - the Blu of it certainly looks better than the old Blu - in fact, some of it looks great, while certain shots seem to lack contrast - curious if the 4K is like that.

My niece called and asked if I could come over on Saturday where there will be more time and it'll be warmer earlier in the day.  I said that that was okay.  So, I went to Costco instead and did a little shopping.  Now, I'm home and will balance my checkbook...hopefully. ;)

Someone on The Manhattan Transfer's FB page posted a YouTube link to the Society of Singers tribute to Frank Sinatra from 1990!  It's the whole hour and a half show.  It's fantastic!

This is what FB poster wrote:

FINALLY someone uploaded the entire program of the Society of Singers tribute to Sinatra on the occasion of his 75th birthday.The lineup of talent is mind boggling: The Hi-Lo's (with Don Shelton and Clark Burroughs), Kitty Kallen, The Sentimentalists (with all of the Clark Sisters), Connie Haines backed by The Manhattan Transfer, Ella, Fran Warren, Steve and Eydie -- I could go on for days! A magnificent evening!

Not to get political, but there's always something to said for (potential) Schadenfreude.

I really have not stopped today - aside from watching about forty minutes of The Shining.  New titles are already live for those who'd like to get a jump on such things.

BK, I'm curious.  According to the CastAlbums.org listing of Kurt Weill Revisited, Vol. 2, the Painted Smiles CD release had 16 tracks, but the Kritzerland listing only shows 12 tracks.  Is that all that yours will have, or did the other tracks just not get listed on the Kritzerland page?

The Painted Smiles CD had twelve tracks, too - just more of Mr. Bagley's complete ineptitude.  On the original LP the first tracks were combined into a medley on ONE track - on the CD he erroneously listed them as separate tracks - you'll see in our list of tracks that all the songs in that medley are one track.  Same with the final two songs - a medley that should be one track that he listed as separate tracks - that's why I'm so happy to be doing these - to correct all his crap.  I do believe by the time he did the CDs he'd completely lost any semblance of sanity he'd once had and he didn't have much to begin with.
