Dixie Chicks MP3 Files: Domestic Science Club

A service of The Unofficial All-Inclusive Dixie Chicks Page

Robin Lynn Macy and Domestic Science Club, 1993

After Robin left the Dixie Chicks in July, 1992, she didn't expect to perform professionally anytime soon... in fact, it appears that she returned to teaching at St. Mark's School of Texas, a prestigious Dallas college prep school for boys. But when Texas folk legend Sara Hickman and songwriter Patty Lege approached her to form a new group, she couldn't resist. Here's how Robin describes it in the liner notes of Domestic Science Club's self-titled debut release:
It seemed as if it would take a miracle to sget me onstage again. But Patty and Sara were relentless... finally, at Sara's 1992 Christmas concert we wove our three voices around Winter Wonderland; our shared venture to sing and write together was born.
Domestic Science Club went on to release two discs: the self-titled release in 1993 and Three Women, released (possibly) in 1996. The 1993 release is no longer available -- not even from Miles Of Music, although a used copy could always turn up at Dallas' CDBargains.com.

Sound Samples from Domestic Science Club (self-titled)

  1. Secrets Of Love (2:23)

  2. I Love You (2:50)

  3. Working Man (2:31)

  4. Sweet Tooth (3:38)

  5. Talk To Me (4:05)
    This track features Robin singing lead on a song co-written by her and the
    St. Mark's Class of '93 (along with Darice Error). In the absence of any samples from the old CDs, this is the best example of the old Dixie Chicks sound. You just have to imagine how it would sound with Emily and Martie Erwin on the strings.

  6. Kayaking (3:10)

  7. Windmill And The Wind (4:40)
    It's no coincidence that this song features guitar, bass, dobro, and fiddle... sources say that this beautiful ballad was part of the Dixie Chicks' onstage playlist before Robin left in 1992. Back then, it would have been Robin on guitar, Laura Lynch on bass, Emily Erwin on dobro, and Martie Erwin on fiddle. Robin still plays guitar, and the talented gentlemen do a nice job on the other strings, but it still leave you wondering what it used to sound like...

    Special Note: This wonderful song is also included (in a different version) on the still-available Three Women release! You can buy it at CDnow.

  8. Tenderness Place (1:39)

  9. Peaches 'n Cream (4:12)

  10. Winter Wonderland (2:30)
