Synopsis

Product Description
The Changer and the Changed is THE album that pioneered and carried the genre known as Women's Music. One of the top selling independent albums when it was released in 1975, it maintained that distinction until the early 90's - an amazing record. These songs are the timeless standards, speaking to all as deeply today as they did when they were first heard. Cris's achievements are part of the curriculum in Women's Studies programs around the world. Her songs are sung around campfires, appear in hymnals and are covered by countless young artists of today. A recipient of many awards, including WUMB Radio's 'Top Folk Albums of the Millennium.' As Bonnie Raitt said so clearly, 'Cris has been a lot of women's hero, including mine.'

CD Reviews

Incredible!
Kathleen Lambert | 11/19/2005

"A friend of mine recommended Cris Williamson and played Waterfall for me. I remembered the song vaguely from college and when I picked up the album I was hooked. But my true appreciation for this album was at a major turning point in my life while waiting for surgery in Vibraham hospital in Bangkok Thailand. I listened to to the songs that had become, by that time, old friends, but they took on new meaning. Song of the Soul just perfectly expressed so much about the world. It led me to such acceptance of myself and forgiveness for others. In the middle of Dream Child the nurses arrived to take me for my SRS. Everything turned out wonderfully, but that morning changed me so much in how I look at the world. I still can't listen to the album without the same profound thoughts coming to my mind. I'm deeply indebted."
Good music and lyrics all the way

"I had this album in the 80's given to me by a male friend, my daughters loved it and we learnt the words to the songs,recently we began to yearn to hear it again and have been persuing it. The songs are classic, some will be inspired by their feminist nature but all should be impressed by the lyrics and the emotion in the music."

"I've been giving "The Changer and The Changed" CD/cassette/LP to women friends for over 25 years and continue to do so. One of the best records ever made and certainly the best lesbian CD. Chris is the original pioneer of womens' music and this CD is a "must have" all these years later. Buying another one to give away today!"
