Music Monday: Grey Gardens

I know I’m late to the party on this, Gentle Reader, but I’m really glad I made it – the party is so spectacular, and … really resonates just at the moment. I am, of course, talking about the musical sensation called Grey Gardens.

I had, of course, heard of Grey Gardens a number of years ago, and how popular it seemed to be – my research at the time only turned up the documentary about the aunt and maiden cousin of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion with 52 cats and some lovely raccoons. They had grown a trifle eccentric, shall we say, in their isolation, shall we say. While the film does have certain charms, I didn’t understand why the mid-seventies documentary Grey Gardens – named after their decaying pile – was making waves.

It’s because, of course, it had been turned into a musical. Which I highly recommend. It’s available in 14 parts on youtube, which I, in turn, present here to you. Happy listening, Gentle Reader.

About Ty DeLyte

Madame DeLyte has suffered a grave disappointment - YET AGAIN - and still believes that freedom, beauty, and truth are what's valuable, rather than vulgar cash. He'd add love to that list - but, well, what can he say about love?
