ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This was Emily's last studio album recorded in Austin, Texas before she moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas where she lives now.

The album was recorded at Flashpoint Studio and was one of the most fun albums she ever made because she got to sing a duet with Ray Wylie Hubbard, whom she barely knew at the time (she offered to pay him for the session, but instead he made her restring an autoharp, for some reason), had Jimmy Lafave do a terrible Bob Dylan imitation, got Christine Albert to actually speak French on "So Long Solange", had a real Klezmer band on "Susie Rosen's Nose" and had Danny Barnes and Mark Rubin (of "The Bad Livers") accompany her on the title song, "Terminally Trendy," which was written after the fateful night that she had gone out to see the Bad Livers in Austin and noticed that everyone in the audience but her was wearing trendy leather jackets and had tattoos and body piercings (Emily was wearing a nurd-like purple sweatshirt with a hood, which she still has).

Even though most of the album is humorous, there are a couple of beautiful romantic songs, most notably "In Love and Out of This World," which features Rich Harney, a wonderful jazz pianist, and "Christmas in California," with Paul Glasse on mandolin.

A modern day Homer and Jethro?
I first heard Emily Kaitz at the Free Woody Guthrie Folk Festival a few years ago. Her ability and atittude has stuck with me. Finding this CD was a trip back to a wonderful night. All of the songs are imaginative and funny (ha-ha, hummm or often both). My favorite remains "Susie Rosen's Nose" a sly poke at human vainity with a Hassidic tone. This CD cements her position as the modern day Homer and Jethro?

"Small Medium at Large" is my favorite song on this CD.
"Small Medium at Large" is my favorite song on this CD, and of all Emily's songs. It's witty, original, clever and very tender. There is a personal touch in the way that Emily sings and plays this song. I have a lot of friends "into the metaphysical" who appreciate the kind of sentiment that went into its creation. To me, it was worth the purchase price of the CD alone, and the rest of the songs are also very funny, original and upbeat. Thanks, Emily!

My Favorite Emily Kaitz CD
I have all of Emily's CDs (except for the recently released Twang, Twang, Twang) and Terminally Trendy is my favorite. This album has a near-perfect mix of her inimitable wry humor and sensitive introspection. Her supporting cast is stellar, with accomplished players like Mary C. Reynolds, Marvin Dykhuis, and Herb Belofsky in additon to those mentioned in the blurb. Also, Sharon Gless harmonizes with Emily on many of the songs, adding a unique vocal quality that's not found on any other of her albums. This is my "gateway" to
Emily's work, and the one I recomend to anyone who has yet to hear her music.
