A lot of websites have taken to running articles, excerpts or videos of "golden throat" performances—celebrities who can’t sing singing. Here at the Library, we’ve had this slim volume that covers a lot of that same ground, HOLLYWOOD HI-FI, since 1995. Underneath the photomanipulated Jerry Colonna cover the book itself is a fun putdown of celebs who come to believe they can do it all. It features mostly single page articles on each of dozens of albums and singles by folks who should never have been allowed near a recording studio. These include:
Lon Chaney, Jr.
and finally (how did she get in this list? She’s great!) Hayley Mills!
