The Joy of Cooking was a Berkeley-based band of eclectic musicians who made infectious music in the late '60s and early '70s. The sound is rooted in the voices, the songs, the music of its two woman members and driven by a propelling, innovative three-man rhythm section.

Back to Your Heart is a lovingly assembled double CD of live and previously unreleased studio recordings (from 1968-1972). Mastering alchemy by Steve Maki.
