Circles & Arrows

Front cover of Circle and Arrows abum

This album was originally issued by Capitol and then dropped almost immediatly due to internal politics. Rounder re-released this album, which was great news to people who had tried to find the album! Recorded in Nashville, this album is much more produced, and has a definite country influence. It also has a number of country personalities contributing to the album.

The Rounder release revised the liner notes and art work. The liner notes were probably re-typed, the font was changed, and the layout different. Also, the credits are somewhat different. For example, Rounder doesn't credit Tony Gottlieb (Cheryl's manager) for hand claps on Estate Sale.

The cover photos are different on the two releases. On both covers, Cheryl is holding a small picture of herself. The larger picture has all kinds of marking: "Shape Hair", "Remove Wrinkles", etc (directions to the touch up artist.) On the Capitol album, the small picture looks identical to the larger picture. On the Philo album, the small picture is touched up and "glamorized". At one point, Cheryl was talking about having the smaller picture have her wearing a tiara and a fancy gown, but that idea was dropped. The Capitol album has a picture of Cheryl on the back of the album and the booklet that doesn't appear on the Philo version.

Unfortunately, they still have her old booking agent instead of Fleming and Associates.
