Ruth Wallis on the Party Line. Other albums by Ruth Wallis. Such is the stuff of Ruth Wallis' prematurely enlightened female bravado. Only ten songs on this party line, but a little Wallis seems to go a long way while still leaving one hungry for more. In addition to her usual subjects of sex, money, and marriage, she addresses many other aspects of Americana (in "The American Plan" and others). Russia, Bermuda, Latin America, and the Orient also are represented. The backing music is sparsely appropriate, and she is not above using sound effects for emphasis.
