"Jamie Anderson's voice is rich, richer, richest and this CD shows it off with everything from funny songs to tear-jerkers. She's got an impressive array of back-up artists, too, whether a piece calls for sax or cello or nothing but 9 different kinds of percussion -- that last is my favorite, on a 3-minute cut called "When They Know Who We Are," that I wish could go on for another 20 minutes. Anderon writes great songs -- if you've ever fallen in love with your fist car, gotten misty at the sound of a distant train, or tried to see the world from the point of view of your cat, you'll like this CD."
Contains a song about when cats take over the world.

"Driving in my car last spring listening to WUMB Folk Radio (Boston, MA)with my son, we heard Jamie Anderson's "When Cats Take Over the World". We nearly got in six accidents, we were laughing so hard. The CD is worth it for this song alone, so the rest is frosting on the cake. I've been looking for it ever since and I'm thrilled to find it at Amazon.com."

"I laughed and I cried while listening to this album. We used the song "Menstrual Tango" as a pantomine number to raise money for charity and had to do an encore to have time to take in all the money. Even the DJ came out to "tip" the performer while laughing almost bent over."
Humors, touching and beautiful

"I heard Jamie for the first time at the Alaska Womens Music Festival .... I fell in love with her style. Jamie blends her promotion of womens issues with a good sense of humor. As an openly lesbian women in the music industry, she has couragiously expressed her tolerance of this intolerant world and challenges us all to be so accepting of one another.In the song Never Assume, Jamie highlights the assumtions we all can make that cause a mis-interpretation of who someone really is. Jamies voice is magical at points. Jamies magic with music will stir your heart and encourage your sense of hope.This CD is worth your investment if you enjoy womens music. Thanks Jamie vfor a great cd!!!!!"
