It's her favorite over-the-calf footwear, says fashion-plate Lydia Linda Lorna and since veal is her favorite calf, why not take a high-heeled trek along Memory Lane with a soundtrack from Boots?
When Boots Randolph was "tootin' his horn", he did more than just play the saxophone. More than just pop out music notes. And that's why his saxophone sounded like it could sing...could talk...could almost speak to deaf ears! His ability was awesome. His versatile style still has no equal. He he brought audiences to their feet ever since the early sixties, when his signature song-- "Yakety Sax" -- first hit the airwaves. It took off like gangbusters and turned the young musician into a celebrity, probably before some of his friends in the hills of Kentucky could even spell it!
Over the years, this legendary musician had written chapter after chapter of music history...forever etched in sound... entertaining audiences with the same enthusiasm he had since day one. It was in his blood! Boots was his name and SAX was his game! His horn was a Selmer Super 80 Series II with a Bobby Dukoff D-9 mouthpiece, and a #3 Rico reed.
