Thank you Monk for once again re-releasing one of the best blues recording artists in 12″ format.  When 75% of the song titles have the word Blues in them, you know you are doing right!20130225-161553.jpg

Egyptian Revival

This is a stunning Egyptian revival set from the 1930′s. It is amazing to me that it is still together after all these years. The scarabs are a beautiful blue milky glass (with no chips) and the metal is a type of silver chrome. The bracelet can be easily converted into a necklace. The ring is adjustable. The set itself is of quality and is quite lovely in person. $175.

The inner sleeve says it best….

“…..Some of this music is in the movie.  Some of this music is not in the movie…Some of the music that’s in the movie is not in the album.  Some of the music that was written for the movie is not in the movie or the album.  ….Some of the situations described in the song texts are real. Some of them are not so real….”

Composed and orchestrated by Frank Zappa.  Performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
