Steeped in sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, "Lick Me "takes the reader on a juicy journey through the life and times of the infamous Cherry Vanilla.

Rufus does Judy at Carnegie Hall by Rufus Wainwright ( Recording )
13 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rufus Wainwright has never been afraid of the extravagant gesture, so in the summer of 2006, the singer-songwriter booked a special engagement at Carnegie Hall, complete with a full orchestra and special guests, for the express purpose of recreating Judy Garland's iconic 1961 comeback album, JUDY AT CARNEGIE HALL, in its entirety. Although in both graphic design and Wainwright's choice of outfits for the concert (as seen on the DVD RUFUS! RUFUS! RUFUS! DOES JUDY! JUDY! JUDY!, available separately), care was taken to evoke the overall look and feel of Garland's original concert, Wainwright smartly avoids trying to sound like Garland. Still, his semi-operatic vocal style is a perfect vehicle for these classic pre-rock Tin Pan Alley and Broadway songs. Guests include sister Martha Wainwright, mother Kate McGarrigle, and on a lovely version of "After You've Gone," Garland's youngest daughter Lorna Luft

Want two by Rufus Wainwright ( Visual )
29 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A conveyor of love's petulant mood swings, Wainwright explores the mechanics of need and sorrow, allowing gorgeous melodies--and a wry sense of humor--to soothe, if not cure, his tragic tendencies. WANT TWO (the sequel to 2003's more subdued WANT ONE) opens with a haunting take on the Agnes Dei (here titled "Agnus Dei"), replete with guitar noise, orchestral accompaniment, and Cimbalom drone. This traditional Catholic prayer, a plea for mercy and peace, has never sounded so desperate, so dark, and yet, by track's end, so sweet and redemptive. The rest of the album expands on this lyrical theme of pleading and, melodically, echoes medieval church music, even as it flirts with a variety of rhythmic styles. "The Art Teacher" recalls a vintage Philip Glass piece, with its mesmerizing, repetitive block chords topped by a mournful, windblown melody, while the very pretty and hilarious "Gay Messiah" could be a Billy Joel Top 40 hit in a parallel universe. Though the conflict between desire and peace never quite resolves here, WANT TWO captures the beauty and excitement of the struggle, as told by an artist at the top of his game."--Music Shop website
