Lilith Fair A Celebration Of Women In Music

Label: Arista Records
Released: Apr 28, 1998

2 CD in like NEW Condition

Includes liner notes by Sarah McLachlan.1997 was the year femme-rock broke, and this is the official souvenir. When the year began, Sarah McLachlan was a mildly popular Canadian singer-songwriter who was roundly laughed at when she suggested she tour with a couple of other women; so instead she toured with dozens of women and ended up changing the very face (and body) of the rock-concert industry. The 25 tracks on this two-disc set, recorded live at various stops on McLachlan's inaugural Lilith Fair tour, make it clear why. This is great singer-songwriter rock, performed with verve and passion by a circle of folk, pop and rock acts who seem to know they're on the eve of discovery.Most of the players are singer-songwriters like McLachlan, but there are wild cards thrown in--lounge-rockers the Cardigans, alterna-rocker Meredith Brooks, new-wave vet Susanna Hoffs (who does her Bangles hit "Eternal Flame" ). Quite a few of these artists had career breakthroughs while the tour was in progress; to hear McLachlan and Jewel joining femme pioneers the Indigo Girls on "The Water Is Wide" is to hear a torch being happily passed on.

Lilith Fair A Celebration Of Women In Music V.2

Release Date: May 18, 1999
Label: Arista Records 1999  Lilith Fair Volume 2

SEALED CD

Hurting from criticism that few soul or R&B artists made the festival's prior circuit, the 1998 Lilith roundup included artists like Queen Latifah, Angelique Kidjo and Morcheeba for a dose of hip-hop, trip-hop and rich African rhythm. An even better collection than the first, this Lilith Fair rounds up the key up-and-coming artists--Bic Runga, Heather Nova, Holly McNarland--and balances their selections out with veterans like Cowboy Junkies, Sinead O'Connor and Natalie Merchant.McLachlan herself turns in a stirring performance of her top ten hit "Angel," with gray-haired goddess Emmylou Harris helping out on vocals. Heather Nova's "Island" is an unearthly, gorgeous ride, as is Morcheeba's "The Sea"--God bless singer Skye Edwards milk-and-honey vocals. With an innovative spin on eclectic artists and selections, LILITH FAIR: A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN AND MUSIC VOLUME 2 is well worth adding to any record collection.

Artist: Angelique Kidjo, Bic Runga, Cowboy Junkies, Heather Nova, Holly McNarland, Lisa Loeb, Morcheeba, Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan, Shawn Colvin, Sinead O'Connor, Tracy Bonham, Various Artists, Wild Strawberries

Lilith Fair A Celebration Of Women In Music V.3

Release Date: May 18, 1999
Label: Arista Records  1999  Lilith Fair Volume 3
Hurting from criticism that few soul or R&B artists made the festival's prior circuit, the third volume of the 1998 Lilith roundup, like the second, includes artists like Luscious Jackson, N'Dea Davenport and Me'Shell Ndegeocello for a dose of hip-hop, trip-hop and rich African rhythm. An even better collection than the first, this Lilith Fair brings together key up-and-coming artists-Sixpence None The Richer, Rebekah and Chantal Kreviazuk--and balances their selections out with veterans like Bonnie Rait, Emmylou Harris and the Indigo Girls.Volume Three shines with the austere, but passionate "Not An Addict" from K's Choice, Holly Cole's strangely sexy "Onion Girl" and even the then-little known Nashville band Sixpence None The Richer on their soon-to-be smash "Kiss Me." With an innovative spin on eclectic artists and selections, LILITH FAIR: A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN AND MUSIC VOLUME 3 is well worth adding to any record collection.
