Re: Books, movies and records of the year

Thanks Honorio! (It literally killed me trying to find reviews and summaries of Ala-Arriba! and Boogie Woogie Cocktail, and apparently they're both obscure even on the internet, from what I found.

Re: Books, movies and records of the year

What makes a record the "record of the year" is not the subject matter, the social aspects of the lyrics, or any of that. Most people in 1939 never heard of "Strange Fruit" and that remains today. For me, a "Record of the Year" MUST be something that most people are aware of. Especially in 1939, an...
