Last week, Goldfrapp leaked that their new CD would not be out until some time early in 2008. I was so looking forward to it for the holidays. …of course the new Roisin Murphy CD came out in the UK yesterday. Haven’t heard it, tho.

Recently saw this picture on the Internet from 1975. I don’t think singers have studios personally decorated for their recording sessions anymore. God bless Barbra! Turbans and flowers are probably very inspiring as you sing.
In fact, I’m certain that they would inspire me! I wonder if Kylie decorates a studio before she begins work. It is called “Photo Ready” and one should decorate the sound booth for perfect back lighting at all time!

    That is one hot turban.

    Pants! Yes, in the 70’s Barbra gave great turban! …especially in the recording studio.

    but the top pic looks like she’s taking it in the back! I’ve looked from all angles, near tipping my lap top this-a-way and that-a-way. Do you think they know? Is she riding the white horse?

    I feel gross. Going home now.

    Perhaps Gina’s right. I have to say though that doesn’t actually look much like Queen Babs. She’s so young! Miaow!!

    I too look forward to Goldfrapp’s new one.

    Gina! Yeah, I agree. I think. At first I thought she was doing one of those “dead” pictures she used to do when she was pursuing a Cindy Sherman sort of art career. But, then I thought — no cyber robot or something, but no. I think you are correct. Odd picture. hmmmmm…

    Cool Old Cheeser! Oh, no! She looks nothing like Babs! Two separate thoughts in my one post. I think Goldfrapp normally records out of an old house/barn with ‘re-tooling’ in a proper studio. But, in the 70’s singers would totally take over studios — like Fleetwood Mac for TUSK.

    Actually, I think Babs is about 7 years younger in her picture than A is in hers. Isn’t A about to hit upon 40?!?!?

    …Babs is about 33 in that picture.

    People seem to age different now. We all keep looking younger.

    People airbrush differently. I wish I could be airbrushed.
    And Alison might be getting it from behind, but she sure is calm about it. Perhaps she is a cyber robot, after all?

    Ing — Well, yes that is quite true. Never discount the power of photoshop tools! …but, I really do think we age differently.

    …I mean look at a picture of your parents when they were your age — I bet they look at least 10 years older. And, even movie stars! …Like we were watching Bette Davis in All About Eve and were shocked to discover that she was under 55!!! …I think, despite the way we all feel with the pressures of our world, that maybe the world is easier now. Or something.

    I’ve not had the benefit of airbrushing or plastic surgery.
