The Pianist


Looks like he's wearing a military uniform.  When there's a draft, the military must have some really good bands.

Music To My Ears 17


Finally, the end.  The last of The Music To My Ears Collection (Click on in labels to see all.) I don't think this one is the oldest, but I wanted to save it for last because, in the background, you can see a head shot seen in an earlier post.  It looks like Ann Parker, or Mary Reagan, or Ruby has had a long show business career.  Not a star, but as a working entertainer.  Something few pwople are able to pull off.

Music To My Ears 17

I suspect this one is a bit older than the last couple of posts, but these aren't dated so it didn't occur to me to do those two last.  So, for those of you who wonder why color prints fade and, more than often than not, end up either a red or yellow color, color film, slides, and prints are made up of three dye layers.  Yellow, magenta, or red, and cyan, or blue.  They fade at different rates.  To see more, click on Music To My Ears in labels at the bottom of the post.  Only one more to go.

Music To My Ears 16

I have to say, I've become addicted to the color restoration setting on the scanner.  Written on the back, "Madonna Inn, Aug-1970."  The Madonna Inn is still in business.  It's in San Luis Obispo, California and is noted for its theme rooms.  Yes, they do have entertainment.  I have to wonder, how long can a lounge singer expect to work.  Click on Music To My Ears in labels to see more from this collection.

Music To My Ears 15

Is this the same woman who has been seen throughout this collection?  I'm not sure she is.  The shape of the face looks different, but then again, it's not a great angle.  Written on the back, "Ruby's Corn Patch 1970-August-Reno."  Click on Music To My Ears in labels and take a guess, same person or not.

Music To My Ears 14

I haven't posted much lately, so there's a pretty good gap on this collection, and if anyone wants to catch up, click on Music To My Ears in labels to see what's already been posted.  It looks like our singer has aged a bit and may, perhaps, be retired.  Written on the back, "5-11-68, Monsignor & Loud Mouth."  I'm sure that's a reference to her singing career.   And just for the hell of it, I used the color restoration setting.

The Trumpet Player


This is "John"  At least that's what is says on the back of the print.   I doesn't look like he's in the marching band.  Perhaps the high school orchestra.
