[South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Minolta Hi-Matic 11, 35 mm SLR, Kodak slide film]
During our two years in Colorado (1971-73), Linda and I had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon several times. Over the years, we have returned, but now we visit the North Rim, which is more remote and not nearly as crowded.
Citi-Bank’s recent television commercial went “viral.” The public wanted more information about the video and especially about the song that accompanied the video.
The song is called “Into the Wild,” and it is performed by “LP.”
When I first heard “LP,” it brought back memories of Linda Ronstadt’s “Distant Drum,” which she recorded with the Stone Poneys in 1967. It has been that long since I have heard a voice with the power and range of “LP.”
I am linking the Citi-Bank commercial and two uploads of “Into the Wild.” In one photo, LP is shown with “TCB” and lightning bolts tattooed on her arm. “TCB” (“Taking Care of Business”) and the lightning bolts were Elvis’ trademarks, so that is another reason to like LP!
Click on the links and enjoy the video and the music. LP is a unique talent.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
[Thank you, Donna, for the spotlight!]
