This is usually the jazz spot and yet there is a backlog of various genres to post, so let’s start:

Beloe Zlato in Berlin:

This is from a couple of days ago and the gals are in Berlin – well, that’s from weeks ago.  First here they are:

Now, the leader, named Dasha, does not seem to be there and that’s unusual. On our right seems to have returned the pretty fair-hair who left some years back, plus three others I recognize, now looking the goods – hair etc.

Given that this is in Berlin and they’re Russian, wonder what the Germans are thinking?

Let’s sneak one more honkytonk in here:


The complete clip of the only appearance on film of Annette as far as we know.

“Annette Hanshaw claims she also did a 10 minute soundie for MGM but it may never surface.”

    Ah, that first one brought tears to my eyes. How could anyone not love Russians? I couldn’t help noticing the cross worn by the girl on our right. Is there hope for us in this post-Kalergi Europe? Yes, it’s called Russia. Years ago I thought that the USA was our hope, still do but that all depends on the Donald. Am I correct in thinking that we have more in common with Donald’s America and Vlad’s Russia than Verhofmayerjunk’s project?

    The orchestra looked a bit stone-faced, as if the pub might shut before he finished!
