ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
26 Obscure, Naughty and Lovely Songs from the 1910s, 20's and 30's!

Ukulele wunderkind and chanteuse Janet Klein has completed an independent release of her debut CD entitled Come Into My Parlor. Klein's CD features Entertaining Songs, Emotive Ballads,and Hot Chansonettes.

Her historical approach to naughty material from the 20's and 30's blends well with her knowing yet kittenish demeanor. Inspired by vitaphone musical short films from the 20's, poetry and performance art, Klein is a gifted and enchanting entertainer, with a sweet sexiness that has been described as Betty Boop meets Betty Page.

With loads of elegance, charm and poise, Klein wraps us around her little finger and leaves us wolf-whistling for more. Refreshing, unique and funny, Klein sings forgotten gems from the teens, 20's and 30's, such as Banana In Your Fruit Basket, If I Can't Sell It I'll Keep Sitting On It and Nasty Man, plus many more made obscure by the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Lil Armstrong (wife of Louis) and Ruth Etting, just to name a few.

Impossible to listen to without smiling.

some of those songs would make your grandma blush
Fun cd with a twist. Not quite the songs for a sing around the camp fire with the family cause some of the songs would make your grandma blush.

Indescribably Delicious
I don't write reviews often, but I love this CD! Janet's voice and uke are indescribably delicious! Her other CDs are great, but this one is my favorite. My wife is jealous because I'm madly in love with Janet Klein!

A Must Have!
I had the wonderful opportunity to see Ms. Klein and her Parlor Boys at the Getty Museum. She is absolutely fabulous. I purchased all 3 CDs and I enjoy them at work everyday.

Oh, Janet!
Janet, you can come into my parlor any time you want, baby! Loved the sparce instrumentation. Compaired to her other three, this one sounds more like a demo of what she can do alone with her uke.

Janet Klein just proves that you don't have to use naughty words to be naughty - and that ukulele is more than just a novelty instrument.

Perfectly refreshing&Masterful of the Single Entandre'GreatVocals!
This Cd has made people at my parties stop and ask about it.
The Instrumentation is refreshing and shows great talent and savvy. The recording is clean and well mixed, as well as the instrumentation & arrangements. It is a great and refreshing honor to hear a present day artist's interpretations of these great tunes, and I encourage you to keep promoting these kinds of CD's, if you can find this kind of talent!!!

Come Into My Parlor
I bought this CD and a ukulele for my sweetheart. We are thrilled with it. The songs are fun, beautiful and sensitively done and very inspiring for a future ukulele songstress.
