""Sex Without Bodies" is fun to listen to. The sound of the recording, recorded "on location" in a church with excellent accoustics, is top notch. Instruments are minimally miked, yielding a wide and deep soundstage. Miss Flint's voice sounds very natural, and on my speakers, she sounds like she is there, right in the room, midway between the speakers, about four feet behind the plane of the speakers. The guitar sound is likewise very natural, and dynamics are superb. But the important thing is the music, and there is a lot of that, especially if you like hip, "lounge lizard" jazz. The lyrics are as intelligent as you might hear this side of Steely Dan. The "double entendre" is used to good advantage, and Miss Flint uses just the right phrasing and nuance to maximize their effect. Some highlights of the album follow. "Spasm" the opening song, swings, and showcases both Mis Flint's voice and Dave Cantor's guitar. "I'll Never Read Trollope Again" may be the funniest song on the CD, and is filled with literary humor. "Stormy" is a slower number, and has the most bizarre lyrics of the set. Miss Flint's voice "wraps" around the melodic line and paints a warped word picture of the activities. My favorite cut is "Daddy'O", using bongos effectively to evoke the early sixties beatnik era mixed with the Viet Nam early seventies era. All the songs on the CD are real toe tappers, with intelligent catchy lyrics, beautifully recorded by Chesky Records. I listen to it almost weekly, and will buy the next Dave's True Story CD automatically, without hearing a note. I don't say that about many artists, but I do about this one, very enthusiastically."

"Simply can't get enough of this type of music. Not easy to classify--not exactly rock, and not exactly jazz--well, whatever the heck it is (jazzy rock?), it sounds great to these ears.
I'd like to see these talented folks cut a few more CDs.
My only objection, (as stated elsewhere regarding two of their other CDS) is when Dave does the talking number.
I don't know, but it just sounds way too weird, and throws the works off. Shouldn't a music CD be all music? Why talk at all, unless it's live and talent is being introduced, etc.
Anyway, that's my only beef with their output.
When will you cut another record, guys? Your fans are waiting."

"I cannot find words to come close to describing how fabulous this CD; this group; this music is! The melodies of Dave Cantor are beautiful. Coupled with kinky lyrics or incredibly intelligent lyrics or just plain fun lyrics - everything works! And Kelly Flint's voice. Cool and sultry. And, great sound. Ballads like Stormy, Nirvana, and Crazy, reach into the depths of one's feelings, explore taboo thoughts, mine deep human emotions - and do it all within the framework of sophisticated and haunting melodies. There is not a weak link to this music.
And where and how did I find this absolute gem? In an out of the way cut-out bin in a record shop in, of all places, Tokyo! Let's hope that some hip Japanese are enjoying this now, as I have been since the day I found it.This is GREAT MUSIC! Get this and the other 2 DTS disk's - NOW!!!"
