Ladies Don't Spit & Holler

Above is the "CD version" of "Ladies..." which was put onto CD by Bruce Reeves. The new artwork was by Judy Reeves.

Lynn calls her first album "The Lynn Lavner White Album," because they could not afford to do an LP jacket for it. It was the music from a musical called "Ladies Don't Spit & Holler," which played on college campuses and also off-Broadway for a very short time in 1981. There was a cast of four women, and Lynn wrote all the songs, but only sang on one of them, "A Confidence." (Click on the title to hear a little bit of it). Below is a homemade cassette version of the album.

"Butch Fatale" was Lynn's first live album, and is special as it gives the listener a chance to hear her comedy talent, including a couple of her well-known quotes. Above, CD and cassette versions of it.
