Eartha Kitt 1927-2008

eartha_kitt_1212203cThe world lost another sexy siren on Thursday.  Eartha Kitt passed away on Christmas day at the age of 81.  You can read some obituaries here, here, and here.

Her death comes on the heels of another famously naughty and sexy woman, Bettie Page.  I always believe these deaths come in threes, and I’m scared to think of who will be next.  Hopefully, I’ll be proven wrong.

Whenever I think of Kitt I think of her devilish smile and wicked purr (she’s still the best Catwoman ever filmed).  I pulled out an old LP today in order to share some of her music with you.  It is from a compilation album called “The RCA Victor Pop Shopper”.  I laughed reading the blurb they wrote about Eartha, and the album “Down to Eartha” that they were trying to promote.

Naughty but nice lyrics get the earthy Eartha treatment in this highly spiced set.  The sultry songstress will add many a molten moment to your platter parties.

Somehow I don’t think anyone was listening to Eartha at “platter parties”.  Her voice was reserved for dark corners and steal away moments.
