    Twirlgirl Sings the Boy Blues

    Ms. Lavin, known for her onstage baton twirling while singing, hits a high note with Beau Woes.... Ever wondered what amoebas do when they get together, had a crush on a building mate you've only seen in the elevator OR been picked last for the softball team 'even after her highness Felicity Rosen?' Christine explains them all in humorous fashion. Eventhough this music was originally released in the '80's, the woes still stand the test of time. Highly recommended for a first purchase or 10th.
