Through it all, your face that I adore

Phew. It's a scorcher! We're off en masse to the river at Richmond today to seek some respite (and dodge the thunderstorms), and, no doubt, partake of some suitably alcoholic libation.

Meanwhile, we celebrate the birthday today of a cherished vocalist here at Dolores Delargo Towers - Senorita Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona, better known as Vikki Carr.

And, to prove that (at the moment at least) all roads lead to the late, dearly missed Stritchy, here's a Benny Goodman song which the Old Broad gave a roasting on her (much treasured by us) solo album - here treated much more sweetly by Miss Carr - And the Angels Sing:

Feliz cumpleaños!

Vikki Carr (born 19th July 1941)
