Kim and Friends' Songs
Cover Songs


The Housewife's Lament 

Kim Novak

We were allowed one cover song on our National Solo Album Month album. I found this one through Roger McGuinn's folk song blog. I had a whole lot of fun recording it.

Red River Valley 

Novak and Reeder

Jim Reeder wanted to do a duet in the Patsy Cline/Jim Reeves style and asked me to sing with him. The slide guitar sounds are great in this one. Yay! I think my Daddy would love Red River Valley!

Sweet Betsy from Pike 

Rose and Blows

My friend Terry says this sounds like a drinkin' song. So get a beer (if you're so inclined) and sing along!

Peaceful Easy Feeling 

Rose and Blows

This is an acoustic cover of The Eagle's song. It was fun to let loose on those high harmonies!

Swing Low Sweet Chariot 

C.M. and Kim Novak

Don't let the introduction to this version of the popular folk song fool you... 22 seconds in and you're transported to a tropical island. So get your colorful fruity drink with an umbrella sticking out and let's have a party! Only available on C.M.'s Lucidity CD at the iTunes Music Store and CDBaby.

Amazing Grace 

Rose and Blows

This classic hymn was recorded especially for the Strange Sandwich Ducks Unlimited CD. It reached #1 on the World/Folk Covers Songs chart at

Nova Scotia Farewell 

jeez And Cheez And Kineez

Written just after the First World War, this is a song about being prepared to defend their fair country at whatever cost.

Black is the Color 

Rose and Blows

Slow at the start and fast at the end. I love the mandolin in this one. It hit #1 World Traditional at 1Sound.
