I have a two-disc Gleason set by Ultra-Lounge that is wonderful. I'm amazed there is a Tina CD out there. I wonder if she sings "I wanna be loved by you" on it? That's the only song I remember her singing on Gilligan's Island. What a hottie!

Yes, I have that Gleason collection, it is outstanding. It's another off-shoot of the Ultra Lounge series along with the double discs of Les Baxter and Martin Denny. All are definitive compilations and all have extremely cool covers (the Gleason one duplicates the Dali-esque artwork of several of his LPs.)

Speaking of Dianne Webber, as I often do - has anyone out there ever seen her early '60s flick "Mermaids of Tiburon"? I picked up a lobby card for this when I was in Hawaii on my honeymoon at that little retro clothes shop in Honolulu (many of you know it, everyone I talk to who's been to Waikiki frequents this place). Anyway, this looks pretty "tiki" and I have a mermaid fetish anyway, if anyone has ever seen it, please report on its availability/watchability.

In addition to that Peter Gunn episode I also have a copy of an episode of one of my favorite TV shows, "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" on video in which Dianne plays - a mermaid! I have lots of vintage men's mags that feature Dianne as well. She is just so...earthy, I guess is the word. And those eyes...she kind of reminds of a little of one of favorite Russ Meyer women (and now my good pal, since she appeared in Thrillville last Feb), Raven de la Croix ("Up!"). Gotta love those foxy, voluptuous brunettes (I married one!) though of course redheads (like Tina Louise, whom my Pop dated briefly back in the day!!) are equally saucy and who doesn't prefer blondes? Yes, or course, we love 'em all. When it comes to beauty, we're color blind.

Oh yea, there's a DVD out from Something Weird double billing an obscure documentary on Anton Levey along with a Ray Dennis Steckler nudie satanic flick called "Sinthia the Devil's Doll" which features Dianne Webber in the flesh...(Ray is returning to Thrillville with Carolyn Brandt this time on August 28, by the way - he sells copies of all his movies on video,including this one, for $5 a pop).

Oh, and I can never forget Julie London, but I dig April too, natch ("Teach Me Tiger" always give me that tingling sensation all over...she also does a very nice version of my former theme song, "You're My Thrill" I used before the Moon-Rays graciously gave me an original song just for the show.) I also have Tina's LP on CD, it's great cooing cocktail music.

Speaking of Julie, you can now check out her film debut (at sweet 19) opposite Buster Crabbe in 1944's NABANGA, on DVd super cheap from Alpha Video (www.oldies.com) I've been telling Mig he needs to start his gorilla movie collection soon, starting with this one...sorry if I strayed too far off topic ("Lounge Music") though a discussion of the cover girls isn't too extraneous for this subject matter, I guess.

Dusting off another vintage thread here. Can TC be vinatge now that it is more than five years old? Sorry some of the old photos in these posts are gone. I'm listening to Gleason's Music, Martinis and Memories tonight. Sweet stuff...

Great thread, as I read the entire thing I realized I have acquired a huge amount if CD's the last 5-7 years. I currently am enjoying listening to Nancy Wilson, Doris Day, Milt Jackson and recently I bought this CD,( it is new) but not bad at all called White Martini. Jackie Gleason has been on my list for a while but I always see something I like better. If you like buying CDs and live in the L.A. area try the Pasadena City College swap meet, first Sunday of the month. They have a whole section just for vinyl and CDs, and the prices are real fair. If you like vinyl, they have a great selelction there.
