When the only sound in the empty street Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet That belongs to a lonesome cop I open shop When the moon so long has been gazing down On the wayward ways of this wayward town That her smile becomes a smirk I go to work Love for sale Appetizing young love for sale Love that`s fresh and still unspoiled Love that`s only slightly soiled Love for sale Who will buy? Who would like to sample my supply? Who`s prepared to pay the price For a trip to paradise? Love for sale Let the poets pipe of love In their childish way I know every type of love Better far than they If you want the thrill of love I`ve been through the mill of love Old love, new love Every love but true love, love for sale Appetizing young love for sale If you want to buy my wares Follow me and climb the stairs Love for sale Let the poets pipe of love In their childish way I know every type of love Better far than they If you want the thrill of love I`ve been through the mill of love Old love, new love Every love but true love, love for sale Appetizing young love for sale If you want to buy my wares Follow me and climb the stairs Love for sale Oh, love for sale Love for sale

Pack up all my cares and woes feeling low here I go Bye Bye blackbird Where somebody waits for me sugar sweet so is she Bye Bye Blackbird No one seems to love or understand me and all the hard luck stories they keep handing me where somebody shines the light I'll be coming on home tonight Bye Bye Blackbird Nobody seems to love or understand me and all the hard luck stories they keep on handing me where somebody shines the light I'm coming on home tonight Bye Bye Blackbird

Dindi 04:16
Sky, so vast is the sky, with far away clouds just wandering by, Where do they go? oh I don't know, don't know; Wind that speaks to the leaves, telling stories that no one believes, Stories of love belong to you and to me. Oh, dindi, if I only had words I would say all the beautiful Things that I see when you're with me, oh my dindi. Oh dindi, like the song of the wind in the trees, that's how my heart is Singing dindi, happy dindi, when you're with me. I love you more each day, yes I do, yes I do; I'd let you go away, if you take me with you. Don't you know, dindi, I'd be running and searching for you like a river that Can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my dindi. Can't find the sea that would be me without you dindi.

Rusted brandy in a diamond glass Everything is made from dreams Time is made from honey slow and sweet Only the fools know what it means Temptation Temptation Temptation I can't resist I just know that she is made of smoke But I've lost my way She knows that I am broke But that I must play Temptation Temptation, yeah Temptation I can't resist Temptation Temptation Temptation I just can't resist Dutch pink and Italian blue She is there and waiting for you My will has disappeared My confusion is oh-so clear Temptation Temptation Temptation I can't resist Temptation Temptation Temptation I can't resist Rusted brandy in a diamond glass Everything is made from dreams Time is made from honey slow and sweet Only the fools know what it means Temptation Temptation Temptation Temptation Temptation Temptation

about

"Julie Lyon Quintet is the best cure for the blues... Julie will give you almost an hour of warm, sincere and very cozy jazz. This American vocalist and her partners do not seek to create some bold experiments, avant-garde delights or to display the power of the voice. The voice of Julie Lyon is not about free rein sound but rather depth of experience and the aura of the truth of jazz will not leave you from the first track to the last." - – Leonid Auskern, Jazzquad, Russia

"Perhaps the most interesting element in this recording is the 'live in studio' nature lending a great deal of atmosphere and beatnik cafe society vibe to the affair. Well, actually, I'm assuming it was thus live 'cause it sure as hell sounds it—if not, if there are overdubs and such, then Tom Tedesco possesses some supernatural talents as an engineer. Singer Julie Lyon exhibits a large element of the happy-go-lucky in her swinging recitations, perhaps most vividly shown in her take on Dindi, about the snappiest version I've heard yet in a song that's been undergoing quite a renaissance in revisitations recently. Then there are the laid back, casual, way hip quotations from the quartet backing her, sounding as though just returned from a break in the back alley where the subject of 'discussion' was muggles, Jack Daniels, and maybe a nip or two of Romilar." - Mark S. Tucker, acousticmusic.com

"Ms. Lyon shows that the she knows exactly what she is doing here and executes all of her songs exquisitely. She's the real deal in her element here with a voice that is like a nice chianti - Smooth, subtle, complex, and a little playful. When she is singing, what you hear is not only the lyrics, but a visceral love of singing that shines through her instrument, very refreshing and appealing." - Jonathan Shade, nitelifeexchange.com
