A 1960’s black drag revue from the Pearl Box bar in New York. Three sides of this double LP are the usual drag stuff, but the last side is a more somber “interview” with the performers that is, in retrospect, frightening in its self-loathing sentiment. This album is rated XXX for adults only.

    I would kill to read those interviews. I’m shocked to hear they’re filled with self loathing though as it had to have taken so much for these guys/gals to do what they did back in the 1950s. I would think they would be proud. Especially if they went as far as to cut an LP.

    Graphics are fantastic.

    How on earth is this just the first time that I’m seeing drag queens referred to as MISSters??!
