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.
Compiling a collection of female voices in various strengths of voices, nuances, and singing various genres of songs was an excellent idea. I heard some of my favorite female singers and came to enjoy those that I had never heard of before. I learned that most of the songs in this collection are not new or original, but comparing the originals to the ones sung in this collection make a world of difference in a listener's perspective.
Truly, this collection is a work of art that can be enjoyed by all adults from young to mature, including men, for many years. I read other reviews of other buyers and noticed that several complained about the flow from one type of song clashing with the next song. My answer to that is that many songs in this collection were performed live in concert and if you can imagine several different singers coming on stage to sing their own song then you will understand that the singers do not adjust their song to those that were performed before theirs and those that will follow. Common sense prevails among listeners who truly pay attention to the collection.
I have a 20 year old daughter who asked to borrow this collection in order to download it onto her iPod and I was more vigilant on it being returned back to me as soon as she had finished. I do not wish to lose this collection again.Read more ›

I bought this after hearing great reports about the Lilith Fair. This CD, however, does not match up with those reports. Read morePublished on July 28, 2006 by A. Wear
