Biography

Sarah McLachlan
Shine On

One day, not that long ago, Sarah McLachlan gave an advance copy of her new album Shine On to a friend who was about to set out on a road trip. "She said she listened to it on repeat throughout the whole drive; she laughed, she cried, she sang at the top of her lungs, and went through the gamut of emotions." McLachlan says. "That seemed like the ... Read more in Amazon's Sarah McLachlan Store

Just hearing Sarah and Emmylou Harris together is worth the price, "Angel" is, and probably will always be, one of my favorite of Sarah's songs. I didn't think anyone could add to this song--but Emmylou did.

I love the "Time after Time" with Cyndi Lauper. It's slower than the original Lauper song and in many ways, more thoughtful. I think Sarah adds the dimension to the song I was always missing. I like it better with her there.

And, what can I say about "Homeless?" Ladysmith Black Mambazo is one of the most amazing a cappella groups around. This is a lovely song no matter how it's done.

As I said, not as rare as the first volume, but the sound quality is great and it's well worth the price. I'm glad to hear Sarah McLachlan is back in the studios again. I hope to hear something new from her soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great gift to the fans June 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sarah McLachlan did it again, without really doing something.
This record contained all the tracks she recorded for soundtracks, other artists' records or performed during special live performances since the first Rarities, B-Sides and Other Stuff (1996).
It's gotta be said that this is a great album with many highlights. Especially when you consider that most artists don't even release rarities records at all.
It starts out with 'Ordinary Miracle' from the movie Charlotte's Web. And this is not the only soundtrack recording represented on this compilation. Sarah's version of The Beatles' 'Blackbird' from I am Sam is beautiful and stays very true to the original and 'When She Loved Me' (Toy Story 2) is very touching. The absolute highight of this cd for me is 'The Rainbow Connection' (from The Muppets), this song goes straight to the bottom of my heart everytime I listen to it.

There are also some very interesting duets on this album. 'Just Like Me' with DMC or 'Time after Time' with Cyndi Lauper are very nice additions to Sarah's catalogue. 'Angel' (live) with the amazing Emmmylou Harris and 'Pills' met The perishers are simply wonderful. But the outstanding duet has got to be 'Don't Let Go' with Bryan Adams (from the animation movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron).

'Prayer of St. Francis' and 'Unchained Melody' (in a totally onrecognizable version!) are two very interesting recordings and show how many different sides and styles there are to miss McLachlan.

And just like on Rarities, B-Sides and Other Stuff volume 1, there's another Joni Mitchell cover on this volume; 'River'.
Yes she recorded River for her 2006 season album Wintersong, but the nice thing is that this version is a different one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing... September 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection, while great for the Sarah fan, hardly measures up to the first B Sides collection release, and some of the material is mediocre at best. Now I see she's releasing a greatest hits collection, which although I'm sure is prompted by the record company, I expect more from Sarah artistically. We have not had new material of quality from her since Afterglow. The recent press release about her split with husband indicates she is looking to release new material in the next 2 years. So, here's hoping patience is rewarded. The new material will probably reflect her emotional fallout from her relationship with her husband, so I would anticipate some intense writing on the next album.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than I thought July 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard this song on Pandora - Homeless - sung by an African group called Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It stuck in my mind, so I searched and found the CD on which it was recorded. The CD is an interesting collection, as the title "Rarities, B-Sides, and Other Stuff" indicates. The name Sarah McLachlan was strangely familiar, but I am over 60 and don't keep up with current recording artists and musicans (Harry Chapin, John Denver, Carole King, James Taylor, Carly Simon, etc. are my type). Some of the other titles on the CD looked familiar, so I purchased it. When I got it, I was surprised that the songs I recognized were done in different styles, but several of them grew on me with time. I think it is an interesting collection, and I recommend it to people that sometimes get tired of listening to the same stuff and are not interested in current Pop songs . . . well, most current Pop songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but uneven September 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
RARITIES, B-Sides, & OTHER STUFF volume 2 is a collection of tracks either by Sarah McLachlan herself or featured her gentle vocals. A lot of the songs can be found on compilations like FOR THE CHILDREN which "The Rainbow Connection" could be found on. As a long time fan of Sarah McLachlan's music, I had to check out this sequel to her first compilation of rare tracks and b-sides. For the most part I did like the cd but there are moments that makes me cringe and wonder what was she thinking. I absolutely despised the massacre of Harry Chapin's "Cat in the Cradle" re-titled "Just Like Me" which featured rapper DMC. Horrible doesn't even cover the description. Taking a well known popular song and turning it into some dreadful rap song is proof that a lot of rap artists do not have any imagination and are incapable of creating their own music. Sarah's vocals is the only good thing about this rancid track. The other track I just cringe whenever it comes on is Sarah's duet with Bryan Adams on "Don't Let Go". The song would have sounded better without Bryan Adams and with Sarah alone. Tiesto's remix of Delerium's "Silence" was totally unnecessary to include. That song is so tiresome and overdone.

As for the songs that I did enjoy on the album, my personal favorite song is Sarah's interpretation of "The Rainbow Connection". Her version of the classic song from THE MUPPET MOVIE is quite lovely. I am so glad that "When She Loved Me" from TOY STORY 2 was included on this compilation. That is another favorite song of mine from this compilation. I also enjoyed "River" from Sarah's winter solstice album WINTERSONG. Sarah's duets with Emmylou Harris and Cyndi Lauper are admirable but I prefer the original versions of the songs Sarah sang duets with those two artists on.
