Alix Dobkin – Love & Politics (2010)


Basically a Best of Alix collection, this 70-minute summer 1992 release documents Alix’s life in songwriting — and the landmarks of her life which inspired those songs. It’s well balanced, with 20 songs spanning 1962-1992: six generic love songs, six specific love songs, six political analysis songs, and two ‘inspirational,’ one generic and one specific. In addition to some of everyone’s favorites, she includes a brand-new recording of the previously unreleased, very controversial My Lesbian Wars… plus a 1970 pre-lesbian recording of Shinin’ Through (which gives great perspective on her journey — one that parallels that of many lesbian-feminists). This release coincides with her first year off the road in eons, making it especially precious! Includes The Woman In Your Life, Amazon ABC, Lesbian Code, Over the Banks, Some Boys, Crushes, 14 more.
