Kristin Lems – Oh Mama Plus! (2000/1979)


These are partial clips of the songs.

Best-selling Kristin Lems album! Includes the pun-filled Dixieland Mammary Glands, playlisted on Dr. Demento, the country-perfect classic, Farmer, about women farmers losing their land from unjust laws (“Call me a farmer, not a farmer’s wife”), a fiery protest of the double standard of justice for black Americans, I Wasn’t Surprised, and the hilarious The Fifties Sound. The reissue has three bonus tracks, including the popular The Three Madonnas, about “Judy and Joni and Joan” – the three artists who most influenced Kristin’s singing and songwriting. “…an excellent songwriter, coupled by a hilarious pun-laden humor” – Colorado Mirror. The New Yorker called Kristin “a charmer in the most literal and least artificial sense of the word [with]….nice feminist lyrics”. The album closes with a stirring performance of Debussy’s L’Isle Joyeuse by distinguished concert pianist Carol Lems-Dworkin, Kristin’s mother. Oh Mama indeed!
