Album history

The majority of not.com.mercial was written by Cher in 1994 when she retreated to France. The song "Born With the Hunger" was written by Eikhardt, and "Classified 1A" is a newly-remixed version of her 1970 Sonny Bono-penned song. The folk/rock-themed album with some slow ballads was proposed to Warner UK when Cher signed with the company in early 1995. Rob Dickins, head of Warner, reportedly turned down the project as being "not commercial".

In 1999, Cher decided it was time to release the record as an exclusive for fans through her website and Artist Direct. not.com.mercial, which released no singles. Though no singles were released, the song "Born With the Hunger" has been featured on the international version of The Very Best of Cher.

None of the songs have ever been sung live and little information is known about the album itself, although Cher's liner notes explains a lot. The song "(The Fall) Kurt's Blues", co-written with Pat MacDonald of Timbuk3 and Bruce Roberts, is her tribute to rock singer Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994.
