RIP Vera Lynn. They say Churchill didn't defeat the Nazis. Vera Lynn sang them to death. https://youtu.be/T5C4meGkNyc

I thought she was going to outlive us all. I'd always loved the absurd ending of Dr Strangelove as a kid (one of my favorite movies), but it wasn't til recently that I fell in love with her singing. Probably my favorite female singer. There's a way her voice almost cracks (but in a good way) that is really distinctive.

RIP Dame Vera. I'll Be Seeing You...

And this classic, well, just about enough to turn this American into a Tory Loyalist!

I recently picked up another Vera Lynn LP...I'm not the biggest fan of country music personally but I got her "Vera Lynn in Nashville" because it was available from a seller that had something else I wanted on Discogs.

https://www.discogs.com/release/5888580-Vera-Lynn-Vera-Lynn-In-Nashville

I'll say, it is an interesting and kind of jarring album...sort of like if Frank Sinatra did a reggae album. But the nicest thing about it is opening the shipping package this morning and finding she had signed it with a personal message, thanking someone named Bridge for inviting her into her home. This is the third inexpensive used item in the past year or two that ended up being autographed by the artist (the other two being second hand copies of a Lovell Sisters DVD and Jerry Byrd's autobiography).

Steel guitar on this album is Pete Drake...who I've heard a fair amount about but mostly know him from that surreal talkbox video "Forever"...
