George Porter Jr., Carlo Nuccio, Paulinho DaCosta, Steve Caton, Eric Rosse, Paul McKenna, Trent Reznor, Merry Clayton, J. P. Shenale. Strings arranged by John Philip Shenale and conducted by Scott Smalley
Eric Rosse, Tori Amos
I like this album much better than Little Earthquakes, which I liked a lot. It's more mature, more certain of itself, more allusive and elusive, which are all qualities I admire. It's as strong as Little Earthquakes, too. "Bells for Her" is my favourite song on this—haunting. Some people have found this one a little too abstract, particularly lyrically, for them. Not me—I love all the hints and glimpses into a very individual mind and heart. (Neile)
Under The Pink + More Pink
This is a special Australia/New Zealand 2cd Tour Edition of Under the Pink. Presently available as a collector's item though at one time it was available in many stores simply as an import. Apparently still available at some Australian cd stores.
Recommended—this is the only legal collection of many of the B-sides from Tori's singles.
The set consists of Under the Pink and a second cd which is a compilation of various B-sides from Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink. This second cd includes: "A Case Of You", "Honey", "Daisy Dead Petals", "Sister Janet", "Sugar", "Take to the Sky", "Upside Down", "Flying Dutchman", "Here. In My Head" (live), "Black Swan", "Little Drummer Boy". All of these are songs worth having, so if you don't already have these songs from the singles, you might try to track this down. "Little Drummer Boy" is the only song not on the singles, though it was available as a promotional single and on some Christmas compilations. (Neile)
