Music legend Alix Dobkin chronicles for the first time her rise to fame as the first artist to record an openly lesbian album in 1973. She also talks about growing up in a Communist family and joining the Party at the height of the McCarthy witch hunts. Dobkin discusses her influences, such as Lead Belly and Pete Seeger, entering the burgeoning folk music scene of Greenwich Village and meeting the up-and-coming Bob Dylan, Bill Cosby and John Sebastian. Rich in period detail, storytelling and outspoken politics, this is essential reading for lovers of music and history.
