Out, About

I was in a local thrift shop today, looking through the vinyl records, as is my wont. It's like being in my Grandma's house again, with the Normal Luboff Choir and Glenn Miller and Jim Nabors.
This was my personal favourite from today - what a stirring cover. It brings a tear to the eye...if I was an Indiginous person, I'd be swelling with pride. It's especially nice to see such a historically accurate example of Native American tribal dress.

Why she could be on a Land O Lakes Butter box! Too bad, I'm rather fond of that symphony.

Mary Lou pegged it. She looks exactly like that butter girl.

Reminds me, weirdly, of that old commercial with the Indian (was it Graham Greene?) shedding a single tear. Which was, in fact, strangely moving, since the tear was for the rape of the environment and all...

And such racially accurate skin tones and facial features, too. New World, indeed.

What a strange world we live in! How old do you think that album is? And yes, I compared her to the Land 'o' Lakes gal (I've got some in the fridge) & except for the big slab 'o' butter, they could be twins!
How did American Indians get associated with butter?
