This album was originally issued under the Cypress label, which went under, and North Star picked it up. Thanks to Tom Taylor for this info

This is Cheryl's second album, which includes two of my favorites: Summer Fly and Half a Book.

If you get a copy of this album, take a look at the CD and see if they still have a typo on it: I See Your Eyes. That was a joke :^)

This album has a number of interesting songs about different aspects of relationships. It is amazing to me that one person can write such convincing songs about so many different flavors of relationships.
