PLUS some recipes & other writings I think you'll dig.

The digital copy is available straight off my website, christinelavin.com, for only $30.

You can still get a physical copy of the songbook, directly from my friend Nate who owns Global Copy on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He charges me $56 to print the 230 page book w/4/C cover and plastic on front & back (make sure you tell him you want that). Nate is at globalcopyny@yahoo.com or call him at 212 222 2679. He is also a UPS shipping point, so he will print and mail you a hard copy, usually on the same day. I don't make anything on the physical copies -- if I did the price would be ridiculously high. Nate stayed open all during the pandemic, so I'm happy to give him the net profit from all sales.

"Shopping Cart Of Love: The Play" is a video on my home page you can watch, and even if you don't consider yourself a singer, YOU CAN SING THIS! Think of yourself as a modern day Rex (or Rexine) Harrison. It is so much fun to perform. Team up with a pianist or a guitarist and you're off to the races -- by itself the digital copy is just $10. And it's perfectly fine to read the lyrics as you sing it -- I've memorized it, but you don't have to!

Both can be played by piano or guitar if you put them on an iPad and prop them on a piano like sheet music.

And here's a bonus -- I was given a video of my April concert at the Caffe Lena -- I added some bells and whistles to it, had the sound mastered by Phil Klum, and it's not posted anywhere (so please don't post it). It was a lot of fun, I can tell you that. All the "surprised" guests were truly surprised, and credited. It's 1 hour and 50 minutes and spans songs from the early 1980s to present.

CL LIVE at Caffe Lena 4/22/22 (music starts at 3:21) 1 hour 50 minutes

This weekend I'm on the road with The Four Bitchin' Babes in Alexandria, VA. Our final concert -- looks like it's the end of the line, but hey, you never know!

Hope you are staying safe --- we're not completely out of the woods with covid. I still mask up in public and have almost a year's supply of N95 masks. Seems like only yesterday Sally Fingerett was teaching us how to sew our own masks -- but that was way back in March of 2020. We've come a long way since then, but have to keep washing our hands and taking care of each other. Just like Ervin and Edith did. Sigh.

Ciao!

Christine
