  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Served up in a neat and tidy, eco-fiendly envelope. Both the envelope and disc feature an original drawing by Jeni. This CD was part of Jeni's "Great Fabric Exchange" back in 2010. If you brought a piece of fabric to a show or sent some in the mail to Jeni, she gave you this CD in trade. Pretty Fair Miss features two rare recordings by Jeni & Billy – the a cappella ballad, Pretty Fair Miss, which was for a long time the encore for their shows, and one of Jeni's favorite murder ballads, Henry Lee. Also included is Jeni's most requested song, The Tazewell Beauty Queen, which she wrote for her Uncle Roy Lee Smith and his pink Chevrolet.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Pretty Fair Miss via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
