The Hard Way - (HMG 1175) Originally released in 1995 on Deluge Records, Christine's first recorded outing with Rebel Montez laid down the Beehive gauntlet with classics like "A Shot Of You," "Then God Created Woman," "Sugar Melts," and "The Seventh Sons." The title track got some major movie action in 2008's "Sex & Lies In Sin City" starring Matthew Modine and Mina Suvari. "The first thing you notice is her tough, rousing, sexy voice"--Charles M. Young/Playboy

Radio Queen- (HMG 1178) This 1997 live outing, originally released on J-Bird Records, was captured during a raging blizzard and in front of an equally raging audience. Here's where you'll find the only recorded version of "Not Fade Away," a staple of any Rebel Montez show, and early live versions of "Turn" and "When The Summer Goes," later to appear on Wicked Time. "Live is where Christine and her group make their living, and it's where they really stand out. And I mean they stand out the way her white beehive 'do does."--Fran Fried, New Haven Register

Wicked Time- (HMG 1176) 2000 saw the release of brand-new tunes on J-Bird Records, with favorites "Ring Of Flame," "When I Work My Thing On You," "Turn," that good-love-gone-bad anthem that continues to tear it up on live dates, a barn-burning cover of Ike & Tina Turner's "I Idolize You," and the goin'-to-New-Orleans title cut. "'When I Work My Thang' is Johnny Otis singing a swamp theme to a movie Burt Reynolds wished he'd made" --Andrew Loog Oldham

Strip- (HMG 1177) The Beehive Queen returned with a vengence in 2003 on TNA Records with a more swamped-up sound, evident on lovelorn nuggets "Another Country," "Empty," "The Storm," the sexy bossa-nova title track, and and an incendiary version of "Highway 61." Strip was the swan-song legacy of Rebel Montez guitarist Eric Fletcher, "The Blond God," who would pass away in 2006. "Husky voiced tough gals seldom get any more fiery than Christine Ohlman. Like a female Bruce Springsteen or Southside Johnny, she uses her encyclopedic knowledge of soul, blues and swaggering leader-of-the-pack 60s girl group pop to texture her mini-dramas that exude a distinct urban sensibility." --Hal Horowitz, The All-Music Guide

And don't forget Re-Hive, the 2008 career retrospective (HMG 1189), featuring choice cuts from each of the above. Cliff Goodwin comes on board on guitar, big-time, for brand-new Chicago blues classic covers "Killing Floor" and "Dimples." Re-Hive includes seven alternate takes (including a live version of "Then God Created Woman") and previously-unissued versions of the Percy Sledge soul classic "It Tears Me Up" and eighties-era dance floor raver "Charmaine." Available at all outlets above.
