Kay Buena - Lady of the Highway - CD Cover Carlos' Guide to KayBuena.com
pixel
pixel I mostly just take direction and make KayBuena.com the way Kay (aka Caroline) wants it. However, depending on her interests/thinking at any given time her site is changed, it can be (intentionally or unintentionally) confusing. This page is my attempt to clarify and brag about some of what she has done.

Music
pixel
pixel The music sections are pretty self-explanatory. The main things to point out:
  • Ignoring some very early pre-MP3.com stuff, all of the music files were as much targeted at MP3.com in 1999 as anything. With the demise of the original MP3.com in late 2003, some of the organization of the music pages makes a little less sense, but is still apropos in my opinion.
  • The recordings were made at various times between 1973 and 1998.
  • Except for a little of the pre-MP3.com stuff, all the recordings are available in both MP3 and Real Audio format.
  • In 1999, there were three primary Kay Buena albums created/sold on MP3.com, with about 40 of her recordings. The songs are eclectic, so they were listed in various genres at MP3.com: country, blues, rock, Reggae(!), folk, etc. Some of those were very popular on the MP3.com genre and overall charts, often at the top of the genre charts in the spring/summer of 1999. (Thanks to http://web.archive.org/ some of the MP3.com charts are still visible. Though the songs charted higher than in the archives I can find, it is still interesting to find "Kay Buena" in archived Country Blues, Folk and Reggae charts. See, also, what used to be on RollingStone.com.) Probably the ones that were the most popular were Lonely Man seemed to be the favorite of the MP3.com staff, and was specially featured on their pages from time to time. It was supposed to be on one of the free MP3.com "sampler" CDs, but we never received a copy of that sampler if that happened.
Writings
pixel
pixel All of the music pages have lyrics for her songs. There are miscellaneous other writings at various places on the site, most notably Report on Comp Carnage--April 5, 1998--Texas, which gets some heavy spikes of traffic due to the links at The Register, e.g., 102 ways to kill your computer and their contest to give away one of the two Comp Carnage works she sent them (Competition: The Winner of the bullet riddled mobo).
pixel
pixel More recently, she has been writing in her blog, which supercedes The Secret Weblogs of Kay Buena, a collection of drawings and writings.

Art
pixel
pixel Besides the works already mentioned above, and the album cover in the left column, http://kaybuena.com/art.html has an eclectic collection of drawings and photos of her mixed-media works.

pixel Before she was known as Kay, Caroline was privileged to be the student of the late Charles Umlauf. I think many of her student era works are wonderful, especially the sculptures:
