Grammyhall

Annie and Grammy! It is well known that Annie Hall is based on Diane Keaton and her family, including her father’s mother Grammy Hall, who was a strong, blunt woman who was not afraid to share her thoughts. Keaton spends a lot of time discussing her in her second memoir Then Again, which is a wonderful read if you haven’t read it yet. The real Grammy Hall also makes a number of appearances in Diane’s directorial debut Heaven, which is available to stream on Amazon prime for anyone interested. It’s a fascinating look on life and religion. #DianeKeaton #AnnieHall #GrammyHall #DianeKeatonHall #DianeHall #HelenLudlam #actress #acting #directors #movies #films #film #documentaries #70smovies #70sfilm #70s #1970s #styleicon #styleicons #style

#Repost @staxrecords (@get_repost) ・・・ It's a twist in an already tragic story that the biggest song in Otis Redding's entire catalogue is the one that he never saw become a crossover anthem. His posthumous No. 1 '(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay,' co-written with his great friend Steve Cropper, and was released on 8 January 1968, a month after his death. He had taken two passes at the vocal, once on 22 November 1967 and then when he returned to Stax Studio in Memphis on 7 December, with Cropper playing acoustic and electric guitar. The daydreaming mood of the lyric was based in truth, as Redding had started writing 'Dock Of The Bay' when he was in California, sitting on a rented houseboat in Sausalito. Perhaps he was reflecting on the memorable year he'd experienced. June 1967 had brought Otis' famous performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, and his R&B hits that year included 'Shake' and his duets with Carla Thomas, 'Tramp' and 'Knock On Wood.' Aretha Franklin took his song 'Respect' to No. 1, both pop and R&B, and 1967 was also the year in which Otis was named UK pop weekly Melody Maker's annual readers' poll as world's best male vocalist, ending Elvis Presley's eight-year ownership of that title. But for all that success, and 21 R&B chart entries, none of them had fully crossed over to the pop market, his best showing in that market was the No. 25 peak, in late January 1967, of another of his signature songs, 'Try A Little Tenderness.' But 'Dock Of The Bay' was different. It entered the Hot 100 on 27 January at No. 67 and was in the top 30 just two weeks later. The song climbed to No. 1 on the pop chart in March, for a four-week reign, also topping the R&B listings for three of them. It was the first time that a posthumous single had gone to the top of either chart. In 1998, '(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay' entered the Grammy Hall of Fame. #otisredding #grammyhall #staxrecords #dockofthebay
