This CD contains 13 of Jeannette's own favorite picks from her 10 years as The Chubbies as well as 9 new acoustic renditions of her best Chubbies songs recorded in her bedroom on that very same 8 track that started it all.
Jeannette Kantzalis started THE CHUBBIES after being dropped from A&M Records.
She had no money, no prospects, so she went back home to Upland to live with her parents and started all over again.
In that tiny bedroom, The Chubbies were born!
On her 8 track she recorded 10 demos and sent them off to Long Gone John of Sympathy for the Record Industry. After 5 seconds of listening to the tattered cassette, LGJ called Jeannette and asked her what she wanted to do.
"Make a record", she said matter of factly.
"Great, let's do it", said LGJ.
"But I don't have a band, it's just me on those demos".
"That's okay", he said, "I like it just the way it is".
He released I'm The King, her first 7 inch and the CD of the same name soon followed.
11 releases later with SFTRI and countless singles, comps and albums with foreign and domestic indy labels, Jeannette just kept writing and recording.
She enlisted Christene Kings right after I'm The King was released to go on tour and they stayed there for over 6 years.
Together they crossed the U.S. and europe in their bright yellow shortbus.
