Product Description

This is a must have for any Sarah fan, it features the much sought after Rabbit in the Moon Remix of "Possession", "Into the Fire (Extended Remix)", "I Will Remember You", "Drawn to the River (Live)", "Fear (Lunasol Remix)", "Dear God", "Vox (Extended Remix)", "Shelter (Violin Mix)" and more.

The Sarah McLachlan cottage industry rolls with Rarities. This disc of hard-to-finds and extended remixes offers some choice morsels for casual fans and a whole plateful for the faithful. The Freedom Sessions proved that McLachlan can do some nice stuff with a cover tune, and she offers a sweet handful here. Fellow Canadians Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell get lushed-out respectively with "Song For A Winter's Night" and "Blue," and McLachlan also works her magic with XTC's "Dear God" and the Billie Holiday classic "Gloomy Sunday." Each is dark, but engaging, like so much of McLachlan's own material, including this set's brooding "Full of Grace" and "I Will Remember You." --Michael Ruby

Sarah McLachlan's 1996 release, "Rarities, B-Sides, & Other Stuff," is exactly what it says it is, a collection of rare & hard-to-find tracks that Sarah recorded between 1989 and 1996---some for movie soundtracks, some as single B-sides, some live stuff, and some remixes. It's probably not an essential purchase for the casual Sarah fan, but for the diehard Sarah follower, it's an excellent batch of rare Sarah material. Sarah's cover songs are all marvelously done: the controversial XTC song "Dear God," the Billie Holiday classic "Gloomy Sunday," the Joni Mitchell staple "Blue," and Gordon Lightfoot's "Song For A Winter's Night." "I Will Remember You," which Sarah recorded for the film, "The Brothers McMullen," is a beautiful song, and one of Sarah's most popular tunes. The pretty "Full Of Grace" later appeared on Sarah's "Surfacing" album, and the Sarah favorite "Drawn To The Rhythm" is included here in a great live version. As for the remixes, they work for the most part, especially the remix of "Fear," which is given a powerful, driving rhythm track. Only two tracks come up short: "As The End Draws Near" is an obscure song by the group Manufacture that Sarah did a guest lead vocal on, but the song is a little *too* electronic-sounding for my taste, and the remix of Sarah's signature tune "Possession" just doesn't work, as all the beauty of the original song is gone. But overall, "Rarities, B-Sides & Other Stuff" is a definite must-purchase for Sarah McLachlan's most-devoted fans. If you love Sarah's music, then you can't go wrong adding this CD to your collection.

I cannot help but wish to clarify to the individual who thought Sarah wrote Dear God; a British rock band, XTC wrote the song, not Sarah. It says so explicitly in the above review as well as in the songwriting credits in the CD itself. Please read carefully before you go blasting off with your blasphemy. If you did your research instead of jumping to conclusions, you would know that Sarah is neither a Christian nor Catholic but a HUMANIST first and foremost. There is a Sarah McLachlan FAQ on the Net if you want to read more about her beliefs on God and religion.
I don't know what XTC had in mind when they wrote Dear God but my interpretation of this song is that it reflects the great frustration a person feels when something bad has happened or when a tragedy strikes causing him or her to question why God allowed it to happen. I believe that all of us, have at least once, questioned about God and whether our faith in God is well-placed. Imagine, your loved one is dying and you desperately pray to God for her life but she dies anyway, wouldn't you feel just a little angry and frustrated at God ? Well, to me, this is what Dear God is all about, a temporary (hopefully not permanent)loss of faith and not necessarily a cruelly-intentioned condemnation of God.
In my opinion, this CD is really worth it for "Dear God" alone. This song is perhaps the most provocative of all the songs Sarah has done(never mind that she didn't write it). The angry passion with which she sings towards the end is truly a shock especially to those of us who are used to hearing her sing soft beautiful songs. It goes to show that Sarah McLachlan is not the otherworldly ethereal-angelic type that she presents herself in songs such as Angel but in fact a real person who's not afraid to express her true feelings, even the true anger that is so amply potrayed in Dear God.
PS : XTC loved Sarah's cover of Dear God.

I agree with most of the reviewers that the highlights of this collection are rather the covers and live tracks than the remixes, even if some of them actually work well.
The raging "Dear God", the full of longing "I will remember you", the magical "Song for a winter's night" and the haunting "Shelter" (better version than the original) are valuable additions to a fan collection. The live tracks "Gloomy Sundays" (a beautiful acoustic, almost religious version) and "Drawn to the rhythm" will please all those who enjoyed "Mirrorball". Add to this "Full of grace" from "Surfacing" and the excellent cover of Joni Mitchell's "Blue" (also available on "Tumbling Towards Ecstasy"). Those tracks alone will justify the money spent on this collection for a fan. If you're new to Sarah, it will give you an idea of who she is and you will get some of her most beautiful tracks here, but I recommend to check her studio albums to get the full picture before you make yourself an opinion.
LunaSol remix of "Fear" brings African rhythm to the song, it sounds a little bit Peter Gabriel produced. "As the end draw near" sounds like an 80's electro track (Kraftwerk, early Depeche Mode). It's not my favourite here, as Sarah's voice is mixed deep down in the music, I don't find it terrible though. "Vox" was never one of my personal favourite songs, but if you loved the original you will for sure find the extended mix delightful. "Into the fire" extended mix has an agreeable oriental flavour. This track leads you to dance. Rabbit in the moon turned "Possession" into a club track. If you liked Sarah's collaborations with Delirium you will not mind. The remixers did not butcher the song too much and Sarah's vocals have not been too altered. It's worth listening and can become captivating even if the original remains better.
