(pretty Average typing on my part, too)
I am really keeping a
of human and animal obituaries on Monkeyfilter. Nice knowing
Abe Vigoda is alive
ooh, nearly had me.
Bummer. I like that he spent some time with jazz groups as well as pop monkeys. For a long time, you could pretty much bet that if his name was on the album cover, it was gonna be good. Few like him around any more. *sigh*
It seems he produced two of my favorite songs --Chaka Khan's version of I Feel For You and Day Dreaming by Aretha Franklin (such an awesome swirly sound in the opening). Cool, yo.
