Dry falls photos garnering attention
NIAGARA FALLS — It has been more than three decades since Russ Glasson last set eyes upon the mighty cataracts of Niagara.
But during the past week, the iconic tourist attraction has figured prominently in the life of the semi-retired 75-year-old Weatherfield, Conn., resident.
Last year, Glasson posted a small collection of 41-year-old photos showing a dried-up American Falls on a photo-sharing website.
The photos, which were taken by his late father-in-law, eventually caught the attention of a reporter with London’s Daily Mail newspaper, who contacted Glasson to say he was interested in doing a story about the photos and posting the collection on the newspaper’s website.

あの3つの滝のうちアメリカ滝が1969年に数ヶ月間、干上がったことがあるって知ってました? これは昨年コネチカットの男性が義両親のガレージから見つけた、その時の写真です。水1滴なくて、まるでグランドキャニオンみたいですよね!

例えばモンキーズですと『I Didn’t Know You Had It in You Sally, You’re a Real Ball of Fire』、『Ladies Aid Society』、『D. W. Washburn』あたり。

The title (of my favorite Flanagan track) references RCA Victor’s 1949 campaign to convert record buyers to the company’s new 45rpm technology.

Bull Moose Jackson – Big Ten-Inch Record(1952)

Benton has a good time with this cute ‘how-to’ song, also issued in an alternate version with the last line read as “to make a hit record” rather than the single’s “and I got a hit record.”

Broken Recordが何度も同じ話を繰り返す(人の)ことだと云われて、若いタレントたちはキョトン。レコードの針飛びを知らないのだから無理もない。
