Excellent and Different than the Amazon information provided

""Living With Lavender Jane is actually one CD that combines two original albums: "Lavender Jane Loves Women" (LJLW) and "Living With Lesbians."(LWL) The first album featured an early appearance by the ubiquitous contemporary Pagan (or New Age) musician Kay Gardner. Amazon has listed the tracks for the first half of the album - LJLW. The second half of the CD includes the following additional tracks from LWL:

Living With Lesbians (4:18)
Chewing Gum (2:36)
Hearts and Struggles (4:45)
Amazon ABC (2:28)
Mary B (4:31)
Toughen Up! (4:53)
Dekka Slunseto (1:20)
Thoughts for Penny (3:59)
The Lesbian Power Authority (5:18)

Often cited as an early classic example of Lesbian Separatist music, these two albums are more than that--drawing on and reworking protest music from labor movements, as well as 19th century didatic folk music for young women. Ewan McColl's famous "Eppie Morrie" is covered and given an appropriately feminist reworking. "Her Precious Love" is Goddess Thealogy religious music at its most powerful and influential."
