ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From The All Music Guide, by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

After the release of Throwing Muses' fifth album, Red Heaven, Kristin Hersh, the band's lead singer/songwriter, took a break from the group and issued her first solo album, the acoustic Hips and Makers, in early 1994. Thanks to the airplay the single "Your Ghost" - a duet with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe - received, the album sold more copies than any of the Muses' releases. Later that year, Hersh also released the Strings EP, which featured versions of selected songs from the album recorded with a string quartet, and did a solo tour. Despite her success as a solo artist, she kept the Muses going as well, releasing their next record, University, in February 1995. Throwing Muses and Hersh as a solo artist moved from Sire to Rykodisc, forming the boutique label Throwing Music in 1996; the label's first release was the final Muses album Limbo, which appeared that summer.

Before the Muses hit the road in support of Limbo, Hersh began work on her second solo album, wrapping it up in early 1997. At the completion of the Limbo tour, Hersh disbanded Throwing Muses, claiming that it was no longer economically feasible to continue with the band. The acoustic-based Strange Angels, her first post-Muses album, was released by Rykodisc in February 1998. That year, she also released Murder, Misery and Goodnight, a collection of lullabies and Appalachian folk songs, as a Throwing Music exclusive. In 1999, Hersh and Throwing Music returned to her original label 4AD for Sky Motel, 2001's Sunny Border Blue, and 2003's The Grotto. Hersh also established the Works in Progress series, a subscription service of exclusive rarities, through Throwing Music's website, www.throwingmusic.com.

Nigel Whitten

The definitive live Hersh
This is without doubt the best live Kristin Hersh CD available. Recorded when her voice was at its peak, it is an intimate recording and gains everything from it.
Buy immediately, you won't be disappointed.

Cliff Zeyl

amazing songs, great performance
Kristin Hersh is an incredible songwriter (songs written for her solo performances are very different from her Throwing Muses songs), a talented performer, and a hilarious storyteller. This album is a great mix of fun and emotional intensity. A bargain.

Ian

A live CD that captures a warm and intimate show
This CD perfectly records an intimate and warm acoustic show by Kristin Hersh. The breadth of emotion and the musical range of her career on display here, are enhanced by the warmth and humour of her spoken interludes. If you are thinking of buying this one, don't hesitate - get it!

Kick arse power folk, anyone? Delivered straight from the mouth of Kristin Hersh, the singer-songwriter and founder of seminal art-punk band, Throwing Muses, this album is going to be pretty hard to beat for those of you searching the "Folk" genre in the next decade or so. Enjoy!

Simply brilliant!!!
I love Kristin Hersh music since the first Muses release. That said, all I can say is that this really is an awesome record!!! Splendid renditions of sundrops, me and my charms, your ghost, delicate cutters (for instance...) and I love the chat between the songs too.
I hope to get the chance to see Kristin Hersh live somewhere around here soon!

Amazing grace!
It is very nice to hear some of these songs live. For me many of them are part of the "folk history" not that I have heard too much folk, but the songs are "classics" if you know what I mean. "Gazeeboo tree", "I`m not like you", "Your ghost" and many more sound excellent here; in fact all the songs from solo albums "Strange angels" and "Hips and makers" sound perfect. Some Throwing muses songs I haven`t heard make this a very interesting cd!

creative, unique, passionate, smart
her raw energy, cryptic lyrics and unique voice are just some of the elements that make this cd a worthwhile investment. she's also funny, talented, and real. this cd is one to sing along with in the car, make out to in your bedroom, or play in the background while having friends over for coffee or wine. there's no limits to it. no limits to her. she's amazing.

Hersh blew me away
I had heard previews and finally bought this fantastic cd. I now have faith in acoustic show recordings, Hersh made this cd an experience rather than another dull souless performance cd. Brilliant.
