MY VIEW:
Shit. She can sing in offbeat, scream like an animal and be beautiful. What more do you want? I bet she cooks good...

SHORT BIOGRAPHY:
A singer with an amazing four-octave range, Yma Sumac was said to have been a descendant of Inca kings, an Incan princess that was one of the Golden Virgins. Her offbeat stylings became a phenomenon of early-'50s pop music. While her album covers took advantage of her strange costumes and voluptuous figure, rumors abounded that she was, in actuality, a housewife named Amy Camus. It mattered little because there has been no one like her before or since in the annals of popular music.

I found a great single of hers in a thrift store and even though I recognized her name, I didn't remember from where. It was the fantastic cover that solidified my decision to buy it. It was fantastic, a real treat to here her go absolutely bonkers. I've been looking for this album for a while, pretty excited I stumbled across your blog.
