The Flash News – Week Of March 27

March came to an end this week and this week marked as the last episode for The Flash for a little bit, but don’t worry: after this final hiatus, the show will be back with back-to-back episode leading up to mid-May! Provided, as always, by our friends at The Flash Podcast (catch it here on The Mixx Radio Network at Wednesdays at 6 PM EST/3 PM PST), let’s go through this week’s news of all things Flash.

The Flash Books House’s Anne Dudek

A mysterious new player by the name of Tracy Brand, played by House’s Anne Dudek, will be coming to The Flash in the remaining episodes of the third season. TVLine.com, that broke the news, revealed that Tracy Brand is described as followed:

“A smorgasbord of quirky idiosyncrasies. Showing nary a hint of the greatness that people will celebrate her for in the future, Tracy will set out to find the genius she’s destined to one day become.”

Will she join Team Flash? Only time will tell!

The Flash 3.19 “The Once And Future Flash” Promo

When the show returns on Tuesday, April 25, we will be dealing with time travel again, but not the way you think. This time, instead of going into the past, we are going to the future! This episode will be directed by the one and only Tom Cavanagh who plays multiple versions of Harrison Wells. We do warn though that there are some pretty big spoilers in this episode so be aware!

While we don’t have an description from The CW, Andrew Kreisberg (one of the show-runners) did say this though at the PaleyFest panel lately about this episode:

“Barry decides that the only way he can find out what he needs to know is in the future.”

Don’t forget to listen to 3.18 of The Flash Podcast: Abra Kadabra!

“On this week’s episode of The Flash Podcast, Andy BehbakhtAmy Marie and Brittany Rivera are joined by original TFP host Lauren Gallaway as they get together to review the eighteenth episode of The Flash Season 3 titled “Abra Kadabra” which introduces the DC Comics character of the same name, played by David Dastmalchian. The gang also read listener feedback about “Abra Kadabra” before going on to the preview session for the next week episode titled “The Once and Future Flash” which is directed by the show’s very own Tom Cavanagh, set to air on Tuesday, April 25. That and more on the latest episode of The Flash Podcast!

Official CW Episode Description for The Flash 3.18: “Abra Kadabra” | DC COMICS’ CHARACTER ABRA KADABRA VISITS CENTRAL CITY – The Flash (Grant Gustin) battles Abra Kadabra (guest star David Dastmalchian), a villain from Earth-19, who makes him a tempting offer – release him and Abra Kadara will reveal Savitar’s true identity. Desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton), Barry considers taking the deal but Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) breaches in to capture the villain for her own reasons and during the melee, Abra Kadabra manages to escape. Barry is furious that Gypsy interfered but Gypsy refuses to back down, forcing Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to take sides. Meanwhile, Julian (Tom Felton) is still a bit cold towards Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) but when she is severely injured in a battle with Gypsy, he rushes to her side. Nina Lopez-Corrado directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Brooke Roberts & David Kob (#318). Original airdate 3/28/2017.”

Rosie Hamlin, Rosie and the Originals’ ‘Angel Baby’ Singer, Dead at 71

Rosie Hamlin, lead singer of Rosie and the Originals, the early Sixties group that scored a hit with their timeless single “Angel Baby,” died March 30th. She was 71.

Hamlin’s daughter confirmed her mother’s death on the group’s official site (via Billboard), adding that Hamlin died in her sleep.

“She didn’t perform anymore, and had removed herself from the music scene because of health concerns. She did still paint and tended a very lovely garden. She will be greatly missed by so many,” Hamlin’s daughter wrote. “Thank you for all your wishes and time and kind words. It meant a lot to her.

Hamlin penned “Angel Baby,” her and the Originals’ lone hit, when she was just 14, with her first boyfriend and the Penguins’ “Earth Angel” serving as her primary inspiration. After penning the song over a couple hours on afternoon, Hamlin and some instrument-playing San Diego friends laid down the first version of the track.

“We had trouble landing a record deal. We couldn’t even get an appointment with any of the labels. So we took one of our 45’s to Kresge’s Department Store in San Diego,” Hamlin wrote in her online biography. “They had listening booths in their music section where you could preview records before you bought them. We asked the manager to play our record and see if he could sell it in his store.”

A distributor from Highland Records heard “Angel Baby” and, without officially inking the group to a record contract, took control of the single’s master take and gave songwriting credit to the Originals’ eldest member. The single eventually found its way to famed DJ Alan Freed, who played “Angel Baby” numerous times a day in November 1960; two months later, the single peaked at Number Five on the Hot 100.

However, Hamlin parted ways with Highland after a legal battle over the song’s authorship and ownership. After disbanding the Originals, Hamlin recorded an album with her guitarist husband Noah Tafolla before leaving the music industry by 1963.

“Angel Baby” was one of John Lennon‘s favorite songs, with the former Beatle covering the track for his Rock ‘n’ Roll covers LP; although left off that album, his version emerged on the 1986 posthumous release Menlove Ave. and subsequent Rock ‘n’ Roll reissues.

“This here is one of my all-time favorite songs,” Lennon says in the intro to his “Angel Baby” recording. “Send my love to Rosie, wherever she may be.” Artists like Roky Erickson, Linda Ronstadt and even System of a Down would also cover Hamlin’s oldies staple.

In 1995, Rosie and the Originals were featured as part of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s exhibit on One-Hit Wonders; Hamlin proclaimed herself the first Latina woman ever enshrined in the Rock Hall.
