    Paradise is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings

    Natalie Merchant's career began when, as a college student, she joined the seminal alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs. Serving as lead vocalist, lyricist, and sometime pianist, Merchant released five critically acclaimed studio albums with the band, including the platinum-selling In My Tribe (1987), Blind Man's Zoo (1989), Our Time in Eden (1992), and MTV Unplugged (1993). Merchant left the group in 1993, after 12 years, to record her first solo album. Tigerlily (1995) was certified five-times platinum, and was followed by the platinum Ophelia (1998), Natalie Merchant Live (1999), and Motherland (2001).


    In 2010, Merchant returned with a thematic double album entitled Leave Your Sleep, her debut for Nonesuch Records. A meditation on childhood and mothering, the anthology comprised 19th and 20th century American and British classic children's poetry by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, Christina Rossetti, Robert Graves, Edward Lear, and E.E. Cummings that Merchant had set to music. The result was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, with The Wall Street Journal calling it an ideal fit between poetic and musical forms, and the Independent, a hugely ambitious and beautifully realized double album.

    Tigerlily (Awaiting Repress) (On Sale)


    Natalie Merchant Tigerlily On Numbered Limited-Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP


    Half-Speed Mastered From The Original Master Tapes For Astounding Sonics And Detail


    Five-Times Platinum! 1995 Gem A Vocal Tour-De-Force


    The 10,000 Maniacs were at their peak when group founder and scintillating vocalist Natalie Merchant announced that she was leaving the band to pursue a solo career. It took her four months to record Tigerlily, a gorgeously detailed folk-pop debut that became a permanent fixture on the album charts for a year after its 1995 release.


    The five-times platinum set spawned three giant hits-"Wonder," "Carnival," and the haunting "Jealousy"-that simultaneously crossed over to the pop, adult-contemporary, and mainstream singles charts. It's easy to understand why. On Tigerlily, Merchant turns in a vocal performance for the ages, spinning majestic webs of mellow atmosphere woven with rhythmic textures and low-key movements. This is a mood masterpiece.


    Remastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectable version of Tigerlily mines every last nuance and delicate tone from this intimate gem. Merchant's beautiful voice-her precious coos, soulful inflections, and whisper-soft purrs harken back to the Jazz Era-is presented with an up-close clarity and full-bodied richness that enhance the album's deeply emotional feel. She uses volume and pitch as a painter utilizes shades on a canvas. Subtle and tender, her phrasing and crescendos underscore the personal nature of the lyrics. Merchant sings about mature topics most songwriters lack the courage to explore, probing the painful loss of a longtime partner on "Beloved Wife," actor River Phoenix's tragic death on "River," and life-altering myths on "San Andreas Fault."


    The vocalist's bracing conviction is matched by small-scale acoustic frameworks that don't let a note go to waste. And Mobile Fidelity's engineers worked to make sure you hear all of them. Aligned on a wide soundstage, the discerning mix of Hammond organs, pianos, chamber percussion, and bluesy guitars come across with their understated intentions intact. Balances are superb, dynamics are grand. There is no better way to experience and enjoy the rich sonic fabrics on this album. The results will leave you hypnotized.

    Groove Grease (Awaiting Repress)

    This 1971 session finds McGriff continuing to do like so many other jazz musicians of the time: embrace and adapt to the emergence of funk and soul into mainstream music, and recontextualize it in a jazz arena. The results are an unsurprisingly delicious slice of jazz-funk made from the finest ingredients. The superb playing of Richard Davis on electric bass is unquestionably the anchor throughout the album's nine slices, leaving McGriff and company to follow suit with loose (but not too far out) improvisation that's as equally relaxing as it is invigorating. While McGriff's adventurous side is slightly tamed, it's that willingness to improv and blend together as a cohesive unit that makes Groove Grease such a tasty statement that is consistently fresh with repeated listenings. Review by Rob Theakston.

    Motherland

    Motherland is the third solo album by Natalie Merchant, released in 2001. The album is musically eclectic, varying from Middle Eastern violin-reggae beat fusion This House Is on Fire to 10,000 Maniacs-sounding Tell Yourself. Folky Motherland precedes stylistically Merchant's next album, The House Carpenter's Daughter.


    The album is dedicated to the victims of September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks upon the United States. However, the recording was finished two days before the event, so the songs are not influenced by it. The event has still affected people's interpretations of the lyrics. Additionally, the cover was changed at the last minute to accommodate the post-9/11 world. Her original concept for the photograph on the album cover was a picture of children in a field wearing oxygen masks. We shot these kids in upstate New York on Sept 10, she recalled. And then we were going to reshoot on the 11th. Of course we canceled the session. The day I brought the pictures into the city, there were articles on the run here for Cipro and gas masks. I was getting pressure, anyway, from the record label, friends even, that the image was too controversial. So finally I gave in. A photograph of a demure-looking Ms. Merchant was used instead.

    In My Tribe

    In My Tribe is an album by the American alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs, originally released on Elektra Records in 1987. It was their second major-label album and their first to achieve large-scale success. John Lombardo, Natalie Merchant's songwriting partner on previous albums, left the band in 1986, prompting Merchant to begin collaborating with the other members of the band, most notably Rob Buck.


    In My Tribe was ranked No. 65 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s.

    Breeding Of Mind

    Breeding of Mind pairs guitarist O'Donel Levy with arranger Manny Albam for a genre-defying set that embraces elements of jazz, funk and baroque pop -- the end result is soulful and sublime, couching Levy's uncommonly expressive tone in a series of bold, lush contexts that underline the sophistication of his craft. Backed by bassist Eric Ward, organist Charles Covington and drummer Chester Thompson, Levy transcends the limitations of Groove Merchant warhorses like Never Can Say Goodbye and We've Only Just Begun with aplomb, winnowing deep inside their familiar melodies to reveal new layers of loveliness, but Breeding of Mind is undoubtedly best served by originals like Cherries and The Chocolate Horse, which address contemporary funk sensibilities with remarkable imagination and intricacy.

    The Roar Of 74

    Buddy Rich was the most powerful drummer of all time. In late 1973, the Buddy Rich big band still featured the explosive drummer in prime, competitive form. The orchestra's key soloist during the era was Pat LaBarbera (doubling on tenor and soprano); guitarist Joe Beck also has a spot on Big Mac. The charts (by Ernie Wilkins, John LaBarbera, Manny Albam, Greg Hopkins and Don Menza) for this album emphasize hard-driving swing, with the highlights including Nuttville, "Kilimanjaro Cookout," "Waltz of the Mushroom Hunters," Senator Sam and Menza's memorable Time Check.

    Good Things Don't Happen Every Day

    Like a lot of jazz organists, McGriff had strong roots in the blues. Here he teams up with Junior Parker to lay down some of those roots, mixed in with a good dose of soul. Along the way they find themselves in the funk, a later outgrowth of the blues and soul. Drownin On Dry Land brings the funk accentuated with some great drum playing by an uncredited musician on the liner notes. McGriff and Parker give a nice contemporary, soul sound to the classic Fats Domino tune Ain't That A Shame. It Ain't What'cha Got begins with a catchy organ riff by McGriff before going into a little vamp. Workin has a part in the middle that was looped up by Del for Pissin On Your Steps.--soulstrut.com

    Organist Larry Young's final Blue Note album, Mother Ship, was not released until 1980. Teamed up with tenor saxophonist Herbert Morgan, the great trumpeter Lee Morgan, and drummer Eddie Gladden, Young performs five of his originals, which range from the funky Street Scene and the samba Love Drops to a spacy Trip Merchant and the complex Visions. This highly original set does not deserve to be so obscure.
