Carousel Lounge

by CD Collins & Rockabetty

Album Notes
Over the summer, CD made two music videos based on two tracks from "Carousel Lounge." One, "Understory," details the steps of mountaintop removal, the catastrophic environmental practice of destroying Appalachian mountaintops to get at the coal. You can see it at

The other, "City of Dreams," is a lyric love poem that she had translated into several languages and set to music. The resulting video, a montage of images and women's voices, weaves a tapestry of hope and is a dedication to one of the project's sponsors, Women Waging Peace, a network of women peacemakers from conflict areas around the world.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from each compact disc will be donated to the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition - - to help fight against mountaintop removal mining.

“The first half of this album is down home, earthy, comforting and familiar. But the second half is a different journey— so personal it goes under the skin, through the muscle and the sinews, digging, cracking through the bones. But then you just keep on going, until it becomes transcendent. It becomes my story too.”

-- Nell Josephine

"The music is so fine and varied from song to song, and using the episodes at the Lounge as an organizing principle is very powerful. It's heartbreaking."

-- Alexandra Marshall
