A delightful feast for the ears and eyes:

19 food-related songs performed by Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Julie Gold, actor Jeff Daniels and other eager eaters from the singer-songwriter, cabaret and Broadway worlds!

27 scrumptious recipes from the musicians, their families and friends in an illustrated 96-page "cookbooklet."

Sorry, Lennon and McCartney – love isn't all you need. Christine Lavin, folk/pop music's reigning "comic observer of contemporary manners" (The New York Times) for more than two decades, and dozens of her friends across the creative spectrum celebrate another one of life's essentials – food – in One Meat Ball, a charming, hilarious and unique CD/"cookbooklet" package that we can't claim is non-fattening. You'll be headed for the kitchen after just a song or two, then will race back to your stereo to enjoy the rest of the CD.

Thoughtfully packaged in a cd-size spiral bound book that lies flat (for easy recipe reading), the shiny slick cover resists kitchen stains, and the glorious Gigstar of the millenium is a special guest voice at the very end of the CD.  Do you know who that could be?  Think about it!  Madonna?? Nooooo.  Sarah Palin?  Naaaaaah.  It's . . . Dame Edna!  Yay!!!!!
