Sometimes Mother Really Does Know Best is the award-winning Ms. Lavin's album recorded live at the Colorado Springs Center For the Arts. Includes the rare one-time only recording of "The Legal Ramifications Of A Crackerjack Vendor Who Works at Yankee Stadium" that contains an ending involving time-travel.  After hearing the recording, Christine knew that NO ONE would ever believe that ending, so she took it out of the song.  But it's here in all its bizarre glory.  

One of her most distinctive CD packages, there is a tiny secret message printed in itsy bitsy type on the simple shiny disk:  

Christine says that in an emergency
this disk can be used as a
makeup mirror

And it really can!!  Don't leave home without this disk in your purse.  it's like a Swiss Army Knife for girly girls.
