Kisston Gorgeous I met Lisa at a local gig recently & when she posted about Get Smart!'s new album (well, older album that has just now been released), I delved into their music & came out loving this album too much to not have in my collection. Great to hear good music that is new to my ears. Favorite track: See Who's Laughing.
