The first woman to deliver a movie trailer voice-over also recorded an album for CBS Records. Oh yeah, she also wore a bathing suit on TV.
I wanted to BE Lynda Carter when I was a kid. I had no idea she was a singer first. Thanks for including the Carson interview. That was fun to watch, so many great little nuggets--esp. the Vanquish commercial. It's interesting that Carson really zeroed in on the dangers Carter must have faced as a young woman in the TV industry. And her boyfriend, a psychiatrist, went to the psychiatrist 4 times a week!
Great piece, as always! Interestingly the 1978 picture disc edition of “Portrait” seems to be the most sought after version of this album on Discogs, closely followed by the Argentinian LP edition, with a different cover and aptly titled “Lynda Carter - La Mujer Maravilla” (Wonderwoman). Collector’s items for those who can get them!
Is there anything Lynda Carter can't do? Love the Radar album cover too.
I quite enjoy reading about these cross-over stars that can act as well as sing or play music. This could be a series. Thanks!
I had no idea of how prolific Lynda was as a singer. This blew my mind!
