Title File 013
Transcript Gay Singe Larry Paulette Lips of one dead. Smoke spirals from the beard as he pours the wine, battalion of candles. Blood spilled in bowels, bed shared by brothers, we dreamed of the trees our mothe the vine and smoke of the woman at the crossroads. Breathing cf the dead, as flames are the leaves scattered in the winds of night. Lips wet with beard, he warms me with wings, were I to bring back a twig in my teeth. To capture his words, uncarved roads of thorns and sand his breath his gift to me. How hard to share the blood and bones when a bare room and a bed is all we have. Larry Paulette is one of the first openLy gay singers to record for a major label (Vanguard 79366). This young man has gone through New York's best showcases and ^-70 performances of the musical, Let My People Come. To quote the liner notes: "...this singer of secrets, this actor on private stages wanted to be a star: upfront, out-front, and Gay...". Along with accomplishing that, he has gained attention from interviews with the Advocate and Mandate. Larry Paulette is a fine singer with a strong lyric baritone voice. He demonstrates that he has a grasp of a vide range of styles and dynamics as he goes through the gamut of emotions. The songs include the very amusing Dixieland number "Preakers Ball", the beautiful ballad, "Triad", "Take Me Home With You" which was Larry's showstopper from Let My People Come. The song is a plea of a man in a gay bar at closing time. In that vein he also goes through a disco arrangement of "Cur Day Will Come," as well as a high camp version of "Rubber Buckie" and "100 Ways to Lose a Man". But the title song of Charles Aznavour's chanson, "Comment iis disent" (What Makes a Man a Man) is breathtaking. The singer here pulls out the stops, both vocally and dramatically. This song shows the singer to his best advantage. This album also shows Larry Paulette to good advantage—although some of the campiness may bother one and with some songs there is a sameness of a few selections. This album is a relief for those who are tired of disco or rock with a gay them or designed for a gay audience. It's a pleasure to hear any singer, gay or straight, who can make one laugh or cry, or think and get angry. I hope Larry Paulette's career grows and will be a role model for other singers like him. Mike Miesch Stirring of torches, bread and blood of ghosts, soldiers stand guard before the tower To envision his corpse, his breath as ice, silent as daggers his vineyard of beard. I an a child wanting as a child a man whose wings are soiled with blood. "-•Hio vanishes in smoke as bread blanketed by snow, where I cannot find him, bind together his bones. L remain entangled in the vines of his words, cradling this goblet of ashes. As twigs of love are his lips and eyes, the wine and bread of the heavens. —Randy Conner 12
