One of the universe’s truly distinctive performers, Sally Kellerman went from playing a near victim in 1968’s The Boston Strangler to turning the tables in a series of alluring (and extremely conniving) roles in such 90s projects as Doppelganger (AKA The Evil Within) and Mirror, Mirror 2: Raven Dance. Employing her charmingly smoky demeanor, she brought a level of sympathy and understanding to her take on a lesbian modeling agency director in the psychological television slasher Drop Dead Gorgeous (AKA Victim of Beauty), as well.
Kellerman, also a distinguished veteran of multiple musical theater projects, released her first album Roll With the Feelin in 1972. The classic cut Don’t You Feel My Legwasn’t included on that collection, but it perfectly reflects this sophisticated lyrical temptress’ earthy cabaret style.
From Mash to Brewster McCloudto the blues, Kellerman remains unique.

While his single Walk Among the Cobras Pt. 1 can be heard playing on The Walking Dead: 400 Days video game, the amazingly cool Dan Sartain offers up some queer ambiguity with his cover of The Knife’s Pass This On.
Trading in his rockabilly and blues licks for a chill dance floor vibe, Sartain’s narratory longing for a friend’s brother here is super duper hot!
I’ve tasted the gritty – especially after that psychotic killer clown pushed my face into the ground when I was 10!
But there is nothing as earthy (and fabulous) as the vocals of legendary folk, jazz and blues artist Barbara Dane! Even cinema’s master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, would have to agree with me on that one. (Although, he agrees with me on so little, nowadays. Pesky, I tell you. Just plain pesky!) He included the magnificent Dane in the 1962 episode Captive Audience (starring the distinguished James Mason of Salems Lot and Frankenstein: The True Story fame) on his own Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
Don’t believe me? You can check it, here, yourself:
Then be sure to hang with Dane, often, at http://www.barbaradane.net. This politically charged dynamo is still performing and highly worthy of your support.
