Along with XTC's Andy Partridge, author Julie Gold hates performing live, let alone touring. She's so much involved with her cats in her New York home, recording comes second. From A Distance was copyrighted in '86, but first time she recorded it was in '93, thanks to three of her colleagues (Christine Lavin, Sally Fingerett and Megan McDonaugh) who participated in all-female singer songwriter project Buy Me, Bring Me, Take Me, Don't Mess With My Hair, Life According To Four Bitchin' Babes, Volume 2 (Philo).
