In this intriguing memoir, women's music legend Alix Dobkin chronicles her rise to fame as the first artist to record an openly lesbian album in 1973. Her story, however, opens much earlier in postwar New York City, where, growing up in a Communist family, she watches Jackie Robinson steal home, rubs elbows with radical Left celebrities like Paul Robeson, and comes of age under the watchful eye of the FBI. Rich in period detail, storytelling, and outspoken politics, My red blood is essential reading for lovers of music and history.
Singer-song writer and producer of the groundbreaking 1973 "Lavender Jane Loves Women," Alix Dobkin has six additional highly praised albums and a songbook to her credit. She lives in Woodstock, NY. del.icio.us Facebook Google StumbleUpon Twitter Yahoo
