Notes on folk-type albums often include a highly subjective description of
The First Time Ever I Heard... Far be it from me to trample tradition. Women's
Songs Workshop, Folk-Legacy Festival, March 1980. Several fine performances, several
familiar performers. And then Cindy starts "Working on Wings to Fly"
(the title song other first Folk-Legacy recording - CD-83). Sharp intake of breath,
quick straightening in my chair, careful hard listening - and the hope that she'd
be willing to bring her music to my radio show.



Cindy has visited the show a couple of times now, and I've gone out to several
other performances, and I still sit up straight when I hear her.



Here's Cindy's second recording. It differs from her first in
some fundamental ways: fewer easy-chorus songs, stronger expressions of state-of-the-world
vision, more instrumentals, the choice of a non-Kallet song ("Marblehead
Neck"), some slightly more complex melodies.


But the significant aspects other work are constant: the intelligence
that informs the writing and composing, the skill and feeling in the instrumental
work, and especially that warm and expressive voice.


The voice drew me into Cindy's songs. A lot of them became favorites,
and several of those favorites are here.

TRYING TIMES

Kallet, BMI




This started out as a poem. I didn't know

quite what to do with it until the guitar settled

in one day. I finished it just around the time of

Reagan's election, and the third verse seemed

particularly appropriate.


Sometimes, years later, a song turns out to be

for someone in particular. This one's for Bill.


Trying times came to my door;

Go be brave ones, let them in.

All the sorrows we have borne

Will rise and ride on the morning wind.

I'll fill my pockets with grains of gold;

I don't mind the rain and cold.


Once the fields were autumn wild

And the child had only time.

She was given the power of all the gods;

They said all the world was mine to find.

I'd fill my pockets with grains of gold;

I didn't mind the rain and cold.


I sometimes wish that I could make

The world in orbit cease.

I think "All these noble powers of thought and reason

And it all comes down to this?"

I'll fill my pockets with grains of gold;

I don't mind the rain and cold.


I take the view from sun and stars,

But the hopeless seems to blind.

Someday I'll learn to take with grace

The sweet, the bitter, the light and line.

I'll fill my pockets with grains of gold;

I won't mind the rain and cold.


When the winter's deep in ice

And the ice has numbed the pain,

We'll drive the glaciers down the coast;

They'll scour the mountains, we'll try again.

I'll fill my pockets with grains of gold;

I don't mind the cold.


IF I SING

Kallet, BMI



In the spring of 1982, three members of the Boston-based singing group "Northern
Harmony" performed a French song written in

1360 entitled "Se Je Chant" (If I Sing). The translation in the program
notes by the director, David Gay, read: "If I sing less than usual

of my beloved, it is for the love of my falcons, so good at hunting by the river.
Let us go, gen-

tle comrades, the birds are down there." There were several aspects of this
that caught my

mind, so I lifted it and placed it in this song.


The verse that refers to the bombs was written as the bombing began in Lebanon.
I was sure

it would be out of date by now.


If I sing less than usual of my beloved,

It is not for the slighting of him.

It is for the love of my falcons,

So good at hunting by the river.

Let us go, gentle comrades;

The birds are down there.


If I sing less than usual of my true friends,

It is not for the slighting of them.

It is for the love of our others,

Bombed to fire in their cities.

Let us go, gentle comrades;

What are we doing?


If I sing less than usual of my island,

It is not for the slighting of it.

It is for the love of my planet,

A stone in the universe.

Let us go now, but, this time,

Look from the sky.


If I sing less than usual of my brothers,

It is not for the slighting of them.

It is to strengthen my sisters

And young ones growing.

Let us go now, and, this time,

Give all a home.


If I sing less than usual of my beloved,

It is not for the slighting of him.

It is for the love of my falcons,


So good at hunting by the river.

Let us go, gentle comrades;

The birds are down there.

I DON'T HAVE TO...

Kallet, EMI


Written when I was sixteen, this song expresses some of the concerns I had
at the time, as well as some I still have.


I don't have to feel your hand

to know you're there,

And I don't have to hear your words

to know you care.


And, if I seem so sad so many times,

It's 'cause there are kind of sad

things on my mind,

And I will come around in time.


They don't have to drop their bombs

to prove they're strong,

And they don't have to tell us lies

to hide the wrong,

And, if they think that fighting makes a man,

Well, they'd better take a look again,

And stop the killing while they can.


You don't have to wreck your mind

to have some fun,

And you don't have to say you're here,

I know you're on the run,

And, if you think that hiding is good to do,

Well, you know, I once thought so, too,

But now it's all up to you.


You don't have to bow your head

before the rain,

And you don't have to hide your face

and deny the pain,

'Cause, if there are times when you don't

know what to do,

If you hide it will only hurt you,

When maybe someone can help you through.


(repeat first verse)
