Retta Hughes + Golden Flamingo Orch.

I first heard the Golden Flamingo song a while back on one of those Octopi compilations, but I didn't know there were multiple tributes to New York's beret-wearing citizen patrolmen until I ran across this track by Rhetta Hughes ....

Rhetta Hughes - "Angel Man (G.A.) (Midtown Mix Inst.)"

The intro rang especially true when I lived in Queens. "May I have your attention, there is no uptown N service today ... no uptown N service today ..."

Golden Flamingo Orchestra - "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us"
