Yeah, I bought Dawn Lambeth's CD, which she advertised in a post to the 
list a few weeks ago, from CD Baby, and was amused by the same 
response.  Later they will follow up and ask for a review of the CD.  I 
enjoyed the album, lots of  '30's and '40's ballads; she is backed by 
several well known west coast musicians, including Clint Baker on guitar.
