 Things that record company's do to sell their products...here's one that had a go by putting provocative signs on the cover...note "Restricted From Air Play".....date of release 1966 would have thought by then the "Victorian Era" had gone!!!....Back to the contents of the L/P it is songs that Pearl was singing in her nightclub act nothing "Smutty" or swearing just Pearl Bailey being herself...Track one is the suspect one the rest are just normal songs....

1. She Had To Go And Lose It At The Astor
2. Josephine
3. To Keep my Love Alive
4. I Want A Man 
5. Let's Do It

1. The Physician

Faye Richmonde

Hmmmm....got this from the top shelf !!!...a "Double Entendre" feast !!!..and the voice is not too bad !!...cosidering the content !!....Maiden Aunts cover your ears !!!!
I hope that's not Kim Novak on the cover !!!

 Very interesting platter called Girlesque featuring Faye Richmonde on Davis records. The song titles are risque to say the least but more interestingly is the controversy surrounding the record when it came out in '58.
 Davis was charged with manufacturing off color disks specifically two LP's on Davis Records "For Men Only" and "Girlesque". However the jury listened to the records and after being out 12 hours returned with the not guilty verdict.
