Product Description

Lilith Fair ~ Lilith Fair: A Celebration Of

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I had bought this collection back when it was first sold in stores and fell in love with some select favorites. I lent it out years ago and never saw it again. I finally decided to brave an internet purchase by buying this again as a replacement. Not only did I enjoy listening to my select favorites, but I have come to enjoy most of the other songs that I didn't take the time to listen to years ago.

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.
