ages here) if anyone has any personal experience seeing hulda --- or
ever attended the fire room at "the luxurious summit club". where was
the summit club? does it have any relation in the slightest (investor,
owner, etc.) to THE summit?
just curious... i love how the two listening gaze in rapture at the distant hulda.
some of the text reads:
"hulda was born in reyjavik, iceland.... a lady of unusual charm that easily
captures an audience in a web of music as she smiles gently and strums
...here she has recreated the sounds heard live nightly at the summit. when
we first discussed making the album the greatest problem was how to get the
feeling of hulda's moods, personality and voice quality on record. could we
duplicate her ability to tell a story of joy and sorrow the way she does nightly
in the club?
after long hours of recording the songs, arranged by jim hintikka... we believe
it is all here under this cover photograph taken one evening as hulda sang in
the fire room of the luxurious summit club in downtown houston.
recorded october 14, 1968 at jones studio-houston"
she sings in spanish, english, french and norwegian.
