1988 NAIRD Folk Album of the Year - NOW OUT OF PRINT (TIME MARCHES ON) BUT YES, IT'S AT iTUNES.


The title song has been performed by choral groups -- from the Dartmouth Decibelles, to the Paris (France) Gay Men's Chorus, and has been translated into French, German and Japanese. "Bumblebees" compares an unlikely romance to a bumblebee's ability to fly despite its seemingly unlikely design. "Mysterious Woman" is a funny and affectionate sendup of some performers' quirky personalities.


"Her lyrics combine the wit of poet Ogden Nash, the crazy viewpoint of The Roches, the sensitivity of Judy Collins and the voice of Joni Mitchell." -Performance

CHRISTINE HERE -- I never sounded like Joni Mitchell, so that's a stretch but what a lovely compliment.  And just for the record, I was wearing $250 worth of makeup and had $500 worth of retouching done on that album cover photo. I NEVER LOOKED LIKE THIS. I posed for TEN HOURS and there was NO FOOD at the photog's studio.  I was so hungry when it was all over that I ran to the Pizza Joint as soon as I got home.  I still had all that makeup on and Hector, one of my favorite pizza men, said, "Christine! What hoppen to you?  You like a clown!"  Show biz.
