Album Notes
06/07 News! "Post Mortem" from the debut CD "Hide and Seek" a Just Plain Folks finalist for best song by a Female Singer-Songwriter! Check it out yourself and Thanks for supporting independent music!

Previous Highlights - a successful 7 town Northwest tour; performing with Hamza El Din and The Dead at the Greek Theatre's Jerry Garcia Memorial; a fall band road show to Pumpkin Fest in Oregon; a sold-out show at the Larkspur Cafe Theatre w/ an amazing band! This fall and winter is sure to bring a new batch of performances and songs. Check for more!

"Hide & Seek," Lisa Mandelstein's debut CD, is a moody, hopeful, sweet/spicy mix of songs. Lisa collaborated with two creative co-producers to make each song shine.

Christopher Krotky's strong percussion and unique bass tracks laid the foundation for dynamic yet intimate settings on the songs recorded at his studio (Atomic Tangerine Productions). Check out his arrangements of "Post-mortem" and "Hide and Seek"("Someone's Else's Crime" too)!

Tom Meshishnek records many San Francisco artists and for many years ran the standing-room-only underground music series, Mo's Melody Mansion. In a

ddition to recording talent, he always came up with the right sound at the right time (banjos & balalaikas & washboards, oh my).

Jeri Jones(, laid down languid guitar solos and some tasty slide to get things simmering. Pam Delgado, another Blame Sally gal, added percussion grooves for "Tip Jar" and "Spirograph." Check their website to hear Blame Sally's tight harmonies and uplifting lyrics!

Kelly Takunda Orphan sang backup vocals on two songs, including a smoking vocal to end "Someone Else's Crime." Get her amazing CD "Give It to the People!" right here at!

Daniel Fabricant added jazz-tinged upright bass to "Grandma's Piano" and "Mariette." Alan Lin (Noe Venable; Vienna Teng) laid down violin tracks for the title song "Hide and Seek," from which Chris K created stunning interwoven parts. And, Julie Smolin, another amazing bay area musician, crafted the elegant violin parts on "Grandma's Piano" and "Spirograph."

The CD comes with a beautiful booklet: 10 pages with lyrics and original artwork by

I can listen to this cd 10 times in a row and still want to hear more.
I can listen to this cd 10 times in a row and still want to hear more. Half the songs on this cd stick in my head even when I'm away from it. I love the lyrics, the subjects of the songs and music. Lisa's guitar and piano, the drums, the back up vocals, the cello are beautiful together. It is all wonderfully put together. Bravo!

Christopher Rosenfelder

Wonderful, very relaxing and refreshing.
Hide and Seek was a total surprise. The songs on the cd are for now and always. It is one of the first cd's I have purchased in a long time and want to keep hearing.
I am sure if you listen to the samples you will buy it.

Lisa Mandelstein's first album is as great as her live performances.
I had heard Lisa Mandelstein play live at numerous venues in San Francisco and Texas and was pleased to have this CD so I could listen to her songs again and again. Well worth the wait and I hope this is just the first of many!

Ake H Olsson

Well worth waiting for!
Ever since I heard Lisa Mandelstein perform "Breath in Breath Out" a long time ago at a private occasion I felt that this (what we then called "the Yoga song" just HAD to be published. Later when I had the pleasure of listening to Lisa at the Bazaar cafe I felt that a full CD was something that simply had to be in Lisas future. It has been a long wait but this album was so good that in it she has created a piece of art that I will treasure for ever. It is the intricate blend of ingenious lyrics with great artistry in vocals, guitar and more that makes this a true masterpiece. Thank you Lisa!

Songs you can't forget!
These are songs of a searching and tender heart. Lisa shares her deepest self in her music, celebrating our human frailties with beauty and compassion. This music will stay with you.


It's great! Many tempos, meaningful words, music is wonderful!
I loved the CD. A great debut album!I found it very refreshing. Lisa has the feeling & warmth of a Sarah McLachlan.
