Hey pallies, likes it's been a long long time since we have checked in with our pallie Mark over at "popculturefanboy." Mark continues to do an absolutely fab job of recordin' any and all the amazin' facts, figures, and dates related to Capitol Records. Since the first half or so of our most beloved Dino's recordin' career was for Capitol, Mark's blog pad is a great place to increase one's Dino-knowledge of our great man's Capitol years.
Today's Dino-remembrance shares with us that it was 55 years ago on this very Dino-date that Dino began recordin' tunes for his "Pretty Baby" release...finishin' said tasks on January 30. Gotta say that the al-b-um cover for "Pretty Baby" is likes one of my all all time fav Dino-poses...the look on our Dino's face as he attracts the babe's attention is just the coolest ever! And, likes this collection contains some of our master's most masterful tunes!
Thanks ever so much Mr. Mark for keepin' us up-to-date on all these important dates in Dino-history! To view this info in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram. Likes as a bit of a bonus pallies, at the end of this Dino-message is a vid clip of our Dino's recordin' of "Sleepy Time Gal" from "Pretty Baby." Dino-psyched, DMP
