While historians debate of the fate of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the capital story of Etta Place is significant as any event that defines the Old West. Mistress to Sundance and matron to Butch, Etta was a notorious desperada, beautiful and well-read, an excellent horse-rider, and an expert markswoman. In 1901, on the lam from Pinkertons', the family of three fled to Argentina where Detective Frank Dimaio tracked them to their ranch near the small village of Cholila. In 1908, Dimaio reported: 'I know nothing of Etta Place, but believe she met the Sundance Kid in a house of ill-fame and became his common law wife. She returned to the United States while the Kid and Butch stayed in South America and were apparently killed in Bolivia by Soldaleros-although some believe they escaped.' Based on the oral history of Sadie Albin-aka Etta Place-Pinkerton Waltz is the irrefutable saga of the family of three settling in anonymity on their cattle ranch in the ghost town of Greenhorn, Colorado in 1910. In 1966, when Sadie's husband Eli (the Sundance Kid) passes away, she befriends Mary Iris, a cub newspaper reporter. Separated by generations, they develop an unfailing relationship and Sadie reveals her true identity. Pinkerton Waltz is a journalistic reconstruction of Sadie's lucid memories of the family of three. Sadie begins, "Dead outlaws make great legends. You bet. Better to get it from the horse's mouth than some horse's ass." Pinkerton Waltz peeks under the bedclothes at Fanny Porter's Sporting House in San Antonio, where, at fifteen, Etta's infamy began. On Sadie's 94th birthday, she recalls riding with the Wild Bunch-robbing banks and holding-up trains-and dancing with Pinkertons' along The Outlaw Trail. For half a century, Sadie lived an epic life to escape Etta's legendary past. Eli is mentored by Ernest Blumsenschein, co-founder of the Taos Artists Colony; Joseph (Butch Cassidy) promotes a barnyard-boxing match between The Manassa Mauler and a victorious mountain man; the family of three bottle moonshine in a still hidden beneath the bear cage at the Greenhorn Zoo. Pinkerton Waltz celebrates an ancient Chinaman named Boc Yow and laments the demise of the American cowboy. In the beginning, Etta dances a jitterbug to bring finality to a frenetic folklore. In the end, Sadie whispers the truth, soothing as a cradlesong. www.pinkertonwaltz.com

Calypso, with its diverse cultural heritage, was the most significant Caribbean musical form from World War I to Trinidad and Tobago Independence in 1962. Though wildly popular in mid-1950s America, Calypso--along with other music from "the island of the hummingbird"--has been largely neglected or forgotten. This first-ever discography of the first 50 years of Trinidadian music includes all the major artists, as well as many obscure performers. Chronological entries for 78 rpm recordings give bibliographical references, periodicals, websites and the recording locations. Rare field recordings are cataloged for the first time, including East Indian and Muslim community performances and Shango and Voodoo rites. Appendices give 10-inch LP (78 rpm), 12-inch LP (33 1/3 rpm), extended play (ep) and 7-inch single (45) listings. Non-commercial field recordings, radio broadcasts and initially unissued sessions also are listed. The influence of Trinidadian music on film, and the "Calypso craze" are discussed. Audio sources are provided. Indexes list individual artists and groups, recording titles and labels.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Atta's brilliant plan to kill an unfathomable number of Americans proceeds unabated.
