Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Christine Lavin fans always leave her concerts feeling happy, and if you listen to her new live album, "Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch," you'll know why. Live performances from five different cities weave together to form an hour's worth of music, humor, and commentary as only Christine can deliver. She has added a phrase sampler to her wireless show, creating intricate harmonies and technical effects that put her on the cutting edge of acoustic guitar performance.

About the Artist

"Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch" is singer/songwriter/guitarist Christine Lavin's eleventh solo album. She has won a NAIRD award, two New York Music Awards, four ASCAP composer awards, the Kate Wolf Memorial Award, and her songs have been performed by such diverse artists as the Dartmouth Decibelles, the Washington D.C. Gay Men's Chorus, and international chanteuse Andrea Marcovicci. Along with her affecting wit and musical talent, Christine is widely recognized for her tireless efforts to promote other songwriters and musicians.

Christine's song "Sensitive New Age Guys" was part of the Off-Broadway production of "A... My Name Will Always Be Alice." She is also currently developing a theatrical project of her own.

Christine's concert career continues to take her all over the U.S., Canada, and points beyond. She now performs wireless, enabling her, as she says, "to turn any size concert hall into a living room." When not performing or recording, Christine writes freelance ("The Washington Post"; "The Performing Songwriter" magazine) and is the occasional guest host for the popular "Sunday Breakfast" radio program on WFUV in New York City.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting in touch with her audience October 30, 2001
By Efer
Format:Audio CD
Chris Lavin is the one artist from whom I prefer live recordings. Her humor goes over much better that way. Sure, you lose some of the professional mix, but what shines with Chris is her sponteniety and interaction with her audience. The between-song patter gets old on live albums, but Chris wisely puts it on separate tracks which you can easily skip. I wish others would follow her lead. That said, this is not her best live album - One Wild Night probably is. Here, she's uses a machine that allows her to harmonize with herself, but really overdoes it. It's a novelty at first and works when she keeps it short, but she goes on too long with it on Harrison Ford, Shining my Flashlight, and Single Voice (an otherwise terrific song), so that you just wish the song would end. Her update on What Was I Thinking was funny when it was topical, but it's old news and doesn't age well. On the plus side, Piranha Women is up to Chris' high standards of humor and Happy Birthday, Maureen is a nice alternative to the traditional version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always funny, always talented and always amazing! July 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Kinda funny to see the words "Explicit lyrics" next to a Christine Lavin album. Well, this album is explicit -- explicitly a joy. "Getting In Touch..." is such a clever, wonderful song that all of us can relate to. "Harrison Ford" was hilarious in concert and I'm happy to see it on this album. My favorite song is "Adjust Your Dreams". It shows the quiet, thoughtful side of Christine, which she follows it up with a song about Amazon (no relation to this website) Piranha women. All in all, a wonderful "live" album that all can enjoy. I've got to get me one of those voice duplicating gizmos!

5.0 out of 5 stars A National Treasure August 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Explicit lyrics? Come on, have you seen daytime television lately? This is a woman who has discovered the joke in life and if you listen carefully, she lets you in on it. She makes me laugh and then makes me sentimental and then whimsical, and then romantic. She does it all with a marvelous sense of humor, a fabulous delivery and a real ability to connect to an audience. This is an excellent cd. As a fellow admirer of Harrison Ford, would I lie to you about this? <g>

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it, but not very smooth November 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I love Christine Lavin's work to death, and I do feel that this captures a lot of the essence of the "live" Christine, compared to my experience seeing her perform in Philly a couple of years back. However, and this is a personal preference, there is a little too much of what another reviewer called "patter" - I don't mind hearing it once, but after listening to the CD a zillion times, I just want the music and the talking makes for long intervals in between. I have to keep hitting the "next track" button to skip to what I really want to hear, Christine's beautiful music.

Christine Lavin will always be one of my favorite songwriters. I even enjoy this CD. One comment though: the mixers did a horrible job. The CD is live, but the skips between songs are so abrupt that they sound like the CD is damaged. It's not, but the irritation takes away from the total listening experience. Now, if you're new to Christine Lavin, do yourself a favor and warm up to her with one of her other offerings. This CD's technical failings may turn you off her, which wouldn't be fair.
