is an album by The Singer Diamanda Galás released in 1992, largely featuring her versions of classic blues and gospel songs. The cover art is notable for a glamor shot of the artist, which on closer inspection reveals the words "We are all HIV+" tattooed on her knuckles. The album is dedicated to people with AIDS, as is much of her work.
