Oh, BABY! (2004 Compilation)


cd cover

Oh, Baby! is the latest in the fine tradition of "Jen's Favorites" end-of-the-year samplers. 2004 was the year of adjusting to life as a new mom to my gorgeous son Arlo. To be honest, it was difficult to find time to listen to new music at all. I considered titling it "Blood from a Stone".

The cover artwork is a faithful reproduction of the Rolling Stones' Some Girls, an important album in my musical history, substituting Arlo's face for the Stones. Mine is nearly exactly the same as the original with the exception of one font subsitution and, when it came down to it, I couldn't bring myself to put lipstick on my baby.
