Lola s' House: Filipino Women Living with War
₱ 1,595.00
Galleon

During World War II more than one thousand Filipinas were kidnapped by the Imperial Japanese Army. Lolas’ House tells the stories of sixteen surviving Filipino “comfort women.” M. Evelina Galang enters into the lives of the women at Lolas’ House, a community center in metro Manila. She accompanies them to the sites of their abduction and protests with them at the gates of the Japanese embassy. Each woman gives her testimony, and even though the women relive their horror at each telling, they offer their stories so that no woman anywhere should suffer wartime rape and torture. Lolas’ House is a book of testimony, but it is also a book of witness, of survival, and of the female body. Intensely personal and globally political, it is the legacy of Lolas’ House to the world.

Lola Albright. The Jazz Singer On The Peter Gunn TV Series. Featuring her albums Wants You & Dreamsville
₱ 1,633.00
Galleon

2 LPs ON 1 CD HIGH FIDELITY / STEREO 24 BIT DIGITALLY REMASTERED Once rather dismissively regarded as one of the few blondes in Hollywood whose hair was its own natural color, the glamorous actress Lola Albright (1924-2017) had a che- quered movie career until her definitive big break arrived in 1958. That was when she was cast as the sophisticated night-club singer in NBC s newest television hit, the detective thriller Peter Gunn, which aired from 1958 to 1961. The role made her a personality in her own right. She said that Blake Edwards, the creator-producer-director of the series, had her in mind from the outset. But, she added, he had no idea I could sing. I had just recorded my first album. That was Lola Wants You on the Kem label, on which she sang a dozen standards and originals with her husky, sexy voice, treating them with the intimate approach required by the arrangements conceived and conducted by Dean Elliott. In February 1959, she recorded her second album, titled Dreamsville, this time for Columbia and surrounded by some excellent West Coast jazzmen under the direction of Henry Mancini. Her voice, pleasant as always, carried a group of jazz-fla- vored standards and six Mancini originals from the already-famed Peter Gunn score, in a pervasive and smoky jazz atmosphere. And that was that. Always independent- minded, she subsequently pursued a widely-varied career in film and television until, tiring of the spotlight, she withdrew from public life in the 1970s.
