After The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and hometown newspaper The Raleigh News & Observer heralded Traveling Alone as her best album yet, it would have been easy for Tift Merritt to sit back and enjoy the praise. Instead, she embarked on national and international tours, released the classical hybrid album Night with pianist Simone Dinnerstein and dug even further into Traveling Alone to create the beautiful new expanded edition CD and LP box sets.
One year after its initial release, the exquisite expanded version comes packaged with an illustrated hardbound lyric book. Merritt commissioned the images from artist Diana Sudyka to help bring her words to life, packaged in a vintage book inspired by her travels and penchant for old fabrics, wallpapers and bookstores. Equally exciting, in addition to Traveling Alone, bonus album Traveling Companion features 10 unreleased acoustic tracks, including Merritt originals and two covers from Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits, recorded this year in Brooklyn's Mason Jar Music studio with guitarist Eric Heywood (The Jayhawks, Son Volt, Alejandro Escovedo).
The special companion package comes in both CD and LP formats. The CD version includes the hardbound, vintage-inspired book with two CDs in swinging pockets bound within the book's pages. The premiere vinyl LP version includes three 180-gram LPs that span both Traveling Alone and Traveling Companion, the hardbound lyric book and three custom postcards. Both come with a free digital download code insert, and are must-haves for Merritt fans new and old.

I had the opportunity to see her live again recently and she is still amazing and her band is absolutely perfect on this tour. It was the first time I'd heard these songs and I immediately purchased this album and it's been on heavy play since then. And lucky for me, this album was recorded live and you can definitely hear the energy in a way the other studio albums did not capture.
I still cannot understand how Tift Merritt does not have sell-out shows in huge venues wherever she goes. Tift Merritt is not your typical folk-singer with a guitar. She truly rocks and this album proves it. The best album so far from her.
This would be a great album for introducing people to Tift Merritt or for anyone who has seen her live and been disappointed with other studio albums.
