Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If you need something to pump you up for the upcoming second edition of Sarah McLachlan's all-female touring festival, Lilith Fair: A Celebration of Women in Music is the ticket. This two-disc compilation features 25 live cuts from the inaugural trip. On first spin, it's hard not to notice the range and sheer power of the vocals here. Many of the artists give performances that eclipse their studio work. The most obvious example of this is the opening "Mississippi," where Paula Cole unleashes a voice larger than life. Predictably present is McLachlan's "Building a Mystery," the definitive Lilith song, which began its assault on the air waves at the start of last year's tour and, well, kept building. The house that Sarah built is still growing strong. Lilith Fair: A Celebration of Women in Music is satisfying proof. --Carla DeSantis

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible November 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
for that version of eternal flame on disc one, and the incredible result of combining my 2 favorite artists (mclachlan and Jewel) along with the indigo girls to sing "water is wide," this CD is priceless. You want it, then see if you can pry it from my cold dead fingers or just buy it right now and save some time and energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE SONG makes this CD worth its weight in gold December 10, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The combined talents of the Indigo Girls (Amy Ray and Emily Saliers), Jewel, and Sarah McLachlan are just too much for anyone else on this album to compete with. On "The Water Is Wide", a favorite cover for the Indigo Girls, they harmonize on choruses and take turns on verses, culminating in Sarah's beautiful high notes. Jewel sounds almost childish on this song, but still great. Four of the best, all on one song ... incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasteful compilation of Amazing Female Artists May 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not only is Disc 1 terrific, but Disc 2 meets all expectations as well. Some personally rated highlights are Paula Coles-Mississippi, Abra Moore-Four Leaf Clover, September 67- Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, and Wild Strawberries-I Don't Want to Think About it. What blew me away was the first song on Disc 2 w/ the Indigo Girls, Jewel and Sarah McLachlan--all those beautiful voices sound amazing intertwined. Definitley a CD to buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars From The Other Side February 26, 2007
By Scipio
Format:Audio CD
Maybe I'm too much of a male Chauvinist, but I was never very interested in the various Lilith Fairs. However, for some reason I picked up this CD (at the library - OK I'm cheap) and gave it a listen. It's really quite good overall, albeit a bit uneven. I've listened to it for a while now and it wears quite well.

The Editorial Review above says "Many of the artists give performances that eclipse their studio work" and that's certainly true for Joan Osborne. Her "Ladder" is definitely one of the best live performances I've ever heard. She's a great singer and she had a helluva band backing her up that day. (BTW, one of the other great live songs is "Naked Eye" by Luscious Jackson on Lilith vol. 3.)

Other particularly good songs on this CD are: "Sur Tes Pas" - Autour De Lucie; "I Want" - Dayna Manning; "Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner" - September 67; "Cain" - Patty Griffin; "I Don't Want To Think About It" - Wild Strawberries. I hadn't heard anything by any of these artists before, so I consider this quite a find.

In sum, a nice double CD with a nice range of unique works. As of this writing, it's available as "new" for $3.34 + s/h! Definitely worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, but includes some good highlights August 22, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was disappointed by this collection. Some songs are inspiring (most notibly Tara McLean's phenomenal "Hold Me Jordan") but a lot of them are downright aggrivating, such as Victoria Williams' "Periwinkle Sky" and Yungchen Lhamo's grating "Lama Dorje Chang" that sounds like a banshee wailing around a haunted house. If you buy this album, be prepared to hold your finger on the fast-forward button to get around bad songs to get to good ones. Other positive standouts are Susanna Hoffs' cover of the Bangles' "Eternal Flame," a decent multiple-artist rendition of the folk standby "The Water is Wide" and Lisa Loeb's version of Emmylou Harris' "Falling in Love." Some good artists chose poor songs for their cuts (Paula Cole's "Mississippi" and Indigo Girls' "Scooter Boys") but in general they're good renditions. This album is also good if you want to try out some new artists. Overall, this album is too inconsistent to be listenable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A capturing Collection.. May 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The CD was first not easy accesable, because I hadn't heard of the songs, and most of the artists, but once I sat down and listened, it was absolutely intralling. After taking a year of school french, I didn't understand any of the French track " Sur Tes Pas" but still enjoy listening to the un-translated wonder. The cardigans sing the only song that I've liked by them on the CD, and Abra Moores "four leaf clover" has poppy girl brilliance. September 67 sounds beautiful,and I can't really pull myself from the first cd to listen to the next. Lisa Loeb always has good songs, and Dayna Manning is promising, with a Jewel-esque voice. Thank goodness for girl rawk, and I recomend everyone who gave bad revieus to this cd to listen again, with their ears and not their critisism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful mix of known and unknown artists and songs December 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Beacause I am a lover of all types of music, it is nice to have an album that covers quite a few different styles from rock, alternative, folk, country, and even world. What is so good about albums like this, that feature not only well known talent, but also emerging artists is that it allows you to listen to artists that otherwise you probably would never even get to hear. Take Lhasa for instance. I had never heard of her before, but the traditional song she sings 'El Payande' is one of the best on the album, and leaves you wanting more, and now I will most certainly purchase any albums that she has. The same can be said for Yungchen Lhamo. Before hearing her on this album, I had never given Tibetan music a second thought. But it really is beautiful, her voice soaring and haunting, singing alone with no musical accompaniment. These 2 songs are worth the price of this album alone, but when you realise you are getting 25 songs, it's a bargain.
