"What a WONDERFUL recording! !
Great singing, great musicians, great engineering, great graphics, great songs!
Really nice work, the whole package...I really think this is a terrific piece of work."
(Peter Berryman)



"As the title implies, Humor Me! is 17 songs
with humorous themes written from the 1930s to the 1990s.
This includes songs by Tom Lehrer ("Oedipus Rex"), Christine
Lavin ("What Was I Thinking?"), a couple by Lou & Peter
Berryman ("Living Room"), and others in a similar style...
Mayer accompanies herself on banjo, ukelele, and guitar. The songs
are cleverly arranged and a host of friends help out on concertina,
mandolin, cittern, bass, and vocals. If you like this kind
of humor, you'll certainly find lots to love on this recording."
