Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Reynaldo Rey: One minute she would talk about how she loved Brook Benton, the next minute, and she couldn’t say Brook Benton, she’d call him “Book Ben’n”. And she’d take her teeth out and her face would collapse!  She, oh she looked horrible when she took her teeth out.  And she wore this horrible outfit.  And she didn’t like the way the microphones came up out of the floor at the Apollo.  She said, “God damn microphone be shootin’ up out of the floor, one of them got me right up tight.”  And she was just a crazy, wonderful woman.
