Album Notes
Swingy, bluesy, rocky, poppy, a little bit sweet, a little bit sad, and plenty of attitude: no one category completely describes this album that has taken my Wonderful Band (Walker Teret, Skizz Cyzyk, Glenn Workman) and me nearly three years to produce. It really began more than 10 years ago when I first started singing in small clubs in Los Angeles. Many of the songs on the album are reworkings of songs I performed in my one-woman cabaret show "Do Re MiNK," which is why I kept the name for the CD. Not a songwriter myself, I've been lucky to work with terrific musician/songwriters, and several cuts on the CD were written by bandmembers Kristian Hoffman and George Baby Woods from the Los Angeles incarnation of my Wonderful Band, and Skizz Cyzyk from the Baltimore incarnation. "No Nose Nanook" is a song I performed way back in the early '70s with the amazing Cockettes in a show called Vice Palace. "Female Trouble" is a cool reworking of the title song (performed by the late, great Divine) of the 1975 John Waters film, in which I played the disturbed Taffy Davenport. "Born of a Restless Spirit" is a full on rock song. The others are tunes I have fallen in love with over the years. "Sometimes I Wish I Had A Gun," written by my friend and musical mentor Brian Grillo, was previously released in 2007 on the compilation disc "A Date With John Waters."

The First Musical Excursion is a Glorious One!
Popularly known for her roles in John Waters' movies, Mink Stole uses the quieter, smoother and even soothing register of her voice on Do Re MiNK that many are not accustomed to hearing from her. These songs, from ballads to lounge to rock, all contain stories and Mink does a phenomenal job relaying these stories. She channels her acting ability through her voice to bring the songs to life. “Waiting For The World “ is a groovy, 60’s-flavored rock experience, “Bang Bang” is lovely in French and the duet “Yours And So Am I” is a sweet love song with an exchange of two talented voices. Fans of Mink will surely appreciate the off-center humor of “No Nose Nanook” and “Thank You, Baby” and, of course, the cabaret version of “Female Trouble”. This is not the Mink Stole you may be familiar with but one you will definitely fall in love with!
