I have “No Aces” as the B side to another Patti Page 7″ disc but I couldn’t resist picking up this green copy when I saw it. Taking a picture of it flat doesn’t do the color much justice. Holding it up to the window or a light shows the true hue.
It seems so foreign of a concept to not have every minor detail of a celebrity’s life monitored. I read TMZ, Hollywood Life, FishWrapper, Buzzfeed, etc. every day to keep up on all the celebrity gossip. At times I feel guilty, like what would happen if I were in their position? I’d flip the fuck out on paparazzi or dumb interviewers all the time. I really don’t have the patience for that. I guess that’s why I didn’t find it that surprising an incident from the ’80s managed to follow Paul Anka up into the true digital age (I consider that like mid ’90s to today personally).
In the mid-1980s, Anka was secretly recorded while launching a tirade against his crew and band members, berating them for behavior that he considered unprofessional. When asked about it on the interview program Fresh Air, he referred to the person who did the recording as a “snake we later fired”. The recording became widely known after being uploaded to the Internet and a number of quotes from it have since become famous, including “The guys get shirts!”; “Don’t make a maniac out of me!“; and “Slice like a fucking hammer!“. Some of the quotes were reproduced verbatim by Al Pacino’s character in the 2007 film Ocean’s Thirteen.

John Leslie “Wes” Montgomery (March 6, 1923 – June 15, 1968) was an American jazz guitarist.
He is widely considered one of the major jazz guitarists, emerging after such seminal figures as Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian and influencing countless others. While many jazz players are regarded as virtuosos, Montgomery had a very wide influence on other virtuosos who followed him, having also earned the respect of his contemporaries.
Dave Miele and Dan Bielowsky claim, “Wes Montgomery was certainly one of the most influential and most musical guitarists to ever pick up the instrument… He took the use of octaves and chord melodies to a greater level than any other guitarist, before or since… Montgomery is undoubtedly one of the most important voices in Jazz guitar that has ever lived-or most likely ever will live. A discussion of Jazz guitar is simply not thorough if it does not touch upon Wes Montgomery“.

Towards the end of 1950, Patti Page’s version of “Tennessee Waltz” became her second No. 1 hit, and her most-popular and biggest-selling single.
The song spent 13 weeks at No. 1 between 1950 and 1951. It also became Page’s second single to reach the country chart, becoming her biggest hit there, reaching No. 2. The song would later become one of the best-selling records of the time, selling seven million copies in the early 1950s, which prompted various cover versions of the song to appear on the charts during the year.
“Tennessee Waltz” has also represented the biggest commercial success to date for the overdubbing technique, pioneered by producer Mitch Miller, which enabled Page to sound as if she were harmonizing with herself.
