Lambert, Hendricks and Ross initially sang Salt Peanuts, later made even more famous by The Pointer Sisters. Unfortunately, I couldn't locate a copy, but I did find them singing a surprise ditty here:

Hey SueSue, thanks for bringin' LAMBERT, HENDRICKS AND ROSS along for a spin; they've been faves of mine for ages! The tune you picked ("Every Day") is from a great 1957 LP called SING A SONG OF BASIE which, I believe, is still available on CD!!

And now, to close out our first big night at the Record Party, here's the eternally lovely Miss June Christy from 1950 doing her big hit, "Takin' A Chance On Love."

Holy Heartbeat, Judith, thanks for bringin' your British gal pals along to the Record Party!! Especially Dusty--she swings like nobody's bee's wax! And Ben, you sure did brighten up my tea party with your Gershwin gems!

Right about now we should be mid-day breakin' with three of the dizziest divas from this past century's half-way mark. These ditties should shock and awe you regardless of what your own personal watusi might be.

Debbie Reynolds "If I Had A Hammer" ouch!
