ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hi Folks...

Thanks for all the support of our duo... Although Chris and I are not touring together, we remain really good friends. Although this album and "Flying Poetry Circus" are now permanently out of print, you can still buy other titles of ours here at CDBaby.

Chris has wonderful albums for sale here - American Storyteller Vols. I & II, and American Storyteller Vols. III & IV, as well as earlier works like Convenience Store Troubadours & Hell Toupee.

I have other titles on CDBaby too... "If I Can't Dance," "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" and "Union Maid," as well as nearly-out-of-print older titles like "Look to the Left" and "Heartland."

We both thank you so much for all the nice things you've said and done for us over the years, and look forward to running into you on the road. We're both still actively performing, recording and touring....

and now back to the originally printed blurb:


Longtime friends Chris Chandler and Anne Feeney began touring together in January of 2001.

During their professional partnership they traveled well over 100,000 miles through 41 states and three Canadian provinces refining their unique folken word show at rallies, riots, festivals, colleges, coffeehouses and occasionally living rooms.

The Boston Herald called them "the most creatively radical performers on the coffee house circuit."

They've both moved on to exciting new adventures, but this shimmering live recording captures the best of their work together and is a stinging commentary on the Bush years.

SingOut! Magazine- Fall 2003 Vol 47 #3

It teases you piquantly, hits you hard, and leaves your head spinning - this CD
Review by Rich Warren (WFMT, Midnight Special)

Few in the folk community are unaware of the renegade, radical folk poet Chris Chandler. Since he is not a musician himself he traditionally popped up spewing poetry with a variety of musician accompanists or having their performance provide counterpoint. He finally met his match with the powerful, radical singer-songwriter Anne Feeney. Feeney traditionally focused on political music. To accent Chandler's poetry readings on this recording she frequently entwines pop and folk songs with his raves and rants. Together they fuse like sodium and chlorine into salty substance, and the recording goes down like a strong, salt-encrusted Margarita. It teases you piquantly, hits you hard, and leaves your head spinning. Chandler, who coauthored several of the poems with Phil Rockstroh, uses current events, advertising slogans and wonderful twists of pop phrases as the grist for his rhythmic revolution. As a duo, Chandler and Feeney are highly entertaining. If you agree with, or at least can swallow their politics, this CD is a blast. My favorite is "I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine (Florida)/Swimming to the Other Side" in which Feeney interweaves one line quotes from Pat Humphries' inspiring song and others with Chandler's and co-author Lisa Stolarski's poetry. Chandler possesses a remarkably fertile and inventive mind...Feeney's understanding of Chandler's psyche and skills contributes mightily to this recording. Since the entire CD was recorded live at various venues, somethimes it sounds studio-quality and sometimes it's off-mic. Chandler and Feeney provide a deliciously cynical skewed look at our American Empire, circa 2003.
