    Did that predate her Catwoman performance? Now I know why the audience went wild when I saw her she perform that number live when she was in her eighties. She had even more camp fun with it in that performance - more guttural hissing and gravitas.

    She also reminds me of Katie Lee from the album "Songs of Couch and Consultation". I own it on vinyl!!! Love listening to it on my record player with the crackle of the needle.





    "Jazz saxophonist Bud Freeman came up with the idea for Songs of Couch & Consultation, a cult classic comedy album that pokes fun at psychoanalysis and psychiatric jargon. Freeman wrote a dozen songs' worth of lyrics, which Leon Pober set to music and Bob Thompson arranged. Katie Lee, an extraordinarily pretty folk singer who previously recorded an album for Specialty called Spicy Songs for Cool Knights, was brought in to sing and pose for the cheesecake album cover. The songs describe an assortment of neuroses and psychiatric conditions in a variety of musical styles, delivered with a heavy dose of hand-wringing self-scrutiny. There's ragtime, big-band blues, and even cowboy music as Lee coos her way through topics such as schizophrenia, repressed hostility, and maladjustment. "Hush Little Sibling" lampoons parenting manuals and the venerated Dr. Spock, and "The Will to Fail" identifies a drive Nietzsche missed. The irony is that the sophisticated humor targets an educated audience that is also the group most likely to embrace psychiatric jargon and theories. Reprise reissued the album with a less striking cover, so the original Commentary Records pressing is the one to find."

    Eartha Kitt was amazingly talented, and her life story (she grew up DIRT poor) is inspiring. Ahead of her time, and I wish she had been born in an era where her great talent would have been more appreciated. Sad that more people don't know about her.

    Two more shamefully under-appreciated favorite of mine:

    I saw her live at the Hotel Carlyle a few years back---she was already past 80. It was a blast---she knew how to put on a show.

    And my favorite version of "Where is my man":



    I could dance to that beat all night long, probably because it sounds so similAR TO Mr. Vain!! Gotta love the 90s.

    fitting to a site about gays and their fitness, here is a clip of Eartha at 42 rocking Catwoman with a figure that made Yvonne Craig (batgirl) green with envy....

    My partner used to have this as his ring tone for me. I find it flattering.
