Patience Abbe, Child Chronicler of Travels, Dies at 87

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Richard described it, and they never made a movie. Ms. Abbe, who died on March 17 in Redding, Calif., at 87, was by all accounts the predominant narrating voice of “Around the World” and its sequels, “Of All Places!” (1937) and “No Place Like Home” (1940). Her death was confirmed by her daughter Shelley Rogé. All the books were collections of observations by the three children, as dictated to their mother, the former Polly Shorrock of the Bronx, who was a Ziegfeld girl when she met her future husband in 1921. But it was the hyperarticulate Patience who defined them, dazzling critics with observations about bus-riding Parisians who surrender their seats to women with children, “no matter how first the others were”; about her restless father, “a very poor businessman, but he never does anyone any harm”; about street fighting in Berlin, where “the Communists wore black shirts and were very tough, and the Nazis wore brown shirts and were also very tough.” Herschel Brickell, the literary editor of The New York Post, recalled meeting Patience years earlier while visiting her parents in Paris. Her “frank and fresh and naïve and consistently delightful” observations, he wrote in his review of the book, made one thing obvious to him. Despite their three bylines and their mother’s help, Brickell wrote, “it was she” — Patience — “who was the real author.” Her surviving brother, John, 85, a retired California state labor offici...

Stax star J. Blackfoot dies

Sun, Dec 4, 2011
Someone told me he could sing, and he was at this place across the street from the (Stax) studio and I went over to take a listen to him, and I got him to sing along with the jukebox, to an Otis Redding song," said Porter. Porter and his songwriting partner, Isaac Hayes, initially tried recording Mr. Blackfoot as a solo artist. "But then we thought to capture some of the same energy we'd had with Sam and Dave," says Porter, "but we decided to incorporate a male and female dynamic." Porter and Hayes teamed Mr. Blackfoot up with Norman West, Anita Lewis and Shelbra Bennett, to form the Soul Children. Mr. Blackfoot's earthy vocals would power memorable tracks like "Give 'Em Love," and the group scored 15 R&B hits during its decadelong run. Following the demise of Stax in 1976, the band recorded a pair of albums for the Epic label before breaking up. In 1983, Mr. Blackfoot launched a solo career, scoring a chart success the following year -- both in the U.S. and the UK -- with the song "Taxi." Over the last two decades, Mr. Blackfoot remained busy, recording nearly a dozen solo albums, performing at various Stax-related functions, re-forming the Soul Children for the 2008 album Still Standing, and most recently appearing as part of Porter's musical revue last summer. "He was a person who was at home on stage, he was an entertainer and a true one," said Porter. "He was a tremendous talent; he had a signature all his own. When you would hear him, you would know it was him instantly." Memorial arrangements are pending. -- Bob Mehr: (901) 529-2517 ... (The Commercial Appeal)

Les Daniels, Historian of Comic Books, Dies at 68

Wed, Nov 16, 2011
Aeschylus’ “Oresteia” to William Peter Blatty’s “Exorcist.” Leslie Noel Daniels III was born on Oct. 27, 1943, in Danbury, Conn., to Eva and Leslie Daniels Jr., and grew up in Redding, Conn. He received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Brown University; the subject of his master’s thesis was the horror author H. P. Lovecraft. It all might not have happened, Mr. Daniels’s sister said, had his mother not thrown out his comic book collection when he was 9. “Even at that age he knew to a certainty that comic books would be his career,” Ms. Manning, a child psychologist, said. “Why do moms throw out comic books? I’ve been trying to figure it out all my life.” ... (New York Times)
