Anita O'Day -- Trav'lin' Light. Or an atomic-age version of Honeysuckle Rose: Another singer I kinda like when I hear but rarely catch the name.

I'm working so much overtime these days I really don't have time to make the rounds, and I apologize for my absence-- know that I'm as fond of your blog as ever. This morning, I'm glad I dawdled on by-- love this music. Eternally urbane and cool. Thanks!

"Version," it's not, Anon; that's a different tune with different lyrics. Not a bad piece of work, especially as I enjoy trance -- still, Phil Spector has much to answer for. First among equal objections, a "tight" arrangement doesn't have to mean stealin' all the negative space. Don't always have to be no wall'o'sound, d00d.

You just got me hooked on Anita O'Day. I have heard her sing before, but I never knew who she was. I have just finished listening to about an hour of her material on Youtube. She was not bad looking either.
