The Last of the Blonde Bombshells

And here's Debbie Harry and company and "Maria."

It's from their 1998 comeback album, and I think it's as good if not better than anything they did back in the day. Keyboard guy Jimmy Destri claims to have had the song lying around since high school, unlikely as that might sound.

As for the singer, I can only echo what Steve Forbert famously said about her.

"She sure is purty."

They did some great stuff back in the day. Of course it took famed Glam producer Mike Chapman to make the disc that broke them.

First time I have heard this, though I have a lot of the early stuff. It works for me.

And she shore is purty.
