1 Out Of 10 Therapists: The Poetry of Romanovsky & Phillips Lyrics
This book includes 44 selections published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of R&P’s first musical appearance in 1982.

Pioneers of the gay folk music scene, Ron Romanovsky & Paul Phillips began their career at San Francisco’s Valencia Rose Cafe as the musical break for Gay Comedy Open Mic Night. Over the next two decades they toured across the nation as well as abroad and released a number of albums which are available again at their Official Web-site.

The title of this volume comes from their Official Tour t-shirts sold at concerts in community centers, auditoriums and church halls across North America. The text(“1 out of 10 therapists recommend Romanovsky & Phillips to their patients who listen to music“) and teal, purple & orange colors reflected the spirit of hope and fun that R&P brought to their concerts. The volume includes 44 selections from 1977 to 2007.

Romanovsky and Phillips came flying across the gender spectrum in brave form. Queer, feminist, outrageous, funny, tender. Congratulations on 30 years of daring work.
