Beat Around the Bush

by Sarah Kernochan

Kernochan's second album from 1975 announced a shift into sexual themes. The era was not quite ready for these, especially coming from a woman of independent appetites. Lyrics are explicit without being explicit: a neat trick.
Genre: Pop: Beatles-pop

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the 70's, Sarah Kernochan was called "the female Randy Newman," "Carly Simon with balls," and "willowy and weird." Her second album's title, "Beat Around the Bush," alerted listeners that this would be a journey into sexual territory. Unsurprisingly, radio stations refused to play songs like "It's Alright, It won't Bite," consigning the album to quick oblivion, even though it also contained softer material. (Now Kernochan's work seems prescient.) Her piano-based musical stylings continue the jazz-pop-classical meld she introduced with her first album "House of Pain." This re-issue contains two bonus tracks, "Sleeparound Town" and "Mister Sloane," demos recorded for the musical "Sleeparound Town" which debuted at the New York Public Theater in 1978. After the end of her recording career, Kernochan went on to become a noted screenwriter ("9 and 1/2 Weeks", "Impromptu", "What Lies Beneath" and "All I Wanna Do" among others), two-time Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, ("Marjoe" and "Thoth") and novelist ("Dry Hustle", "Jane Was Here"). This re-issue contains two bonus tracks, "Sleeparound Town" and "Mister Sloane," demos recorded for the musical "Sleeparound Town" which debuted at the New York Public Theater in 1978.
