subject: [ig-news] the indigo girls and sinead o'connor


[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

i got this off the sinead o'connor list, apparently from a publication
titled "music 365":


sinead o'connor: nothing compares to (working with) you


sinead o'connor, currently in the preliminary stages of work on her new
studio album, is involved in a host of collaborative projects over the
coming months.


[big snip of nigc-related collaborations sinead's been doing]


and female us duo the indigo girls have been in london earlier this month
recording new material with members of sinead's band, most specifically
with drummer john reynolds at his own studio. a spokeswoman for sinead
says she cannot confirm whether any actual collaborations with sinead
have made it onto tape yet, but did say that o'connor had been in
discussion over possibilities with the indigos while they were in town.


although sinead o'connor signed to atlantic records over a year ago -
following her departure from chrysalis after many years and via a short
stay with sony - no material has yet been released through her new label.
an atlantic spokeswoman confirms that sinead's debut album for the label
is currently in its early stages but that the singer "has been busy
trying out loads of different things in the studio" including initial
work with eurythmic dave stewart as producer.


[more nigc snip]


personally, i'm excited -- i hear their collaboration on "last day of our
acquaintance" on lillith this year was amazing!

subject: [ig-news] early recordings 4 - blue food mysterys


[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was
originally sent to the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.]

hey folks...


[...]


but - who wants a cd copy of early recordings 4 - blue food mysterys?? and
at minimal personal cost... this is a personal labour of love, painstakingly
remastered and sounding damn fine (although not quite as good as this failed
perfectionist'd have liked...)


yes, as a special offer to you, fellow igs list members, if you send me a
blank cdr, together with an ssae i will, for a limited time, burn you a
copy. and it's absolutely, positively guaranteed to increase exponentially
in value.* or course, if ya'd like to trade cds with me or somthing that'd
be cool too!


i'm sure i could plain sell this, auction it on ebay, or give it away with
every happy meal purchase, but i won't. all i ask is that you don't either
and track down and bludgeon violently anyone you find doing so.


yer basic track listing:


blue food


if you live like that
crazy game
holy city
the weakness in me
never stop
peace song
draw the line
nashville
malachy's
everybody's waiting
untitled
running from the cold
no way to treat a friend
i don't know your name
american tune


mysterys play rehersal


holy city
strange fire i
strange fire ii
- -unknown-


all ya gotta do is email me for my address. and if i get swamped i'll call a
halt for the time being...


peace 'n stuff. and i'll be back in a mo...

subject: [ig-news] honor the earth


[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.  i'm forwarding it as a
follow-on to the fyi post i forwarded yesterday...]

hey again y'all,


i've been checking up to see the responses to my last post, and almost all
seem positive...what we need to know now is if, in all seriousness, we could
begin to get this thing together.  we realize that many of you don't know
about the goals of hte, and what we have our sights set on at the
moment...but again, i'd be pleased to answer any questions that you may
have.  to all of you who have written me for more info, i'll get it in the
mail tomorrow.


...something that i should probably point out, that i'm not sure if i
covered or not in my last post is that you all (i'm speaking to you as ig
fans here, not as political activists) will benefit from these donations.
they could very well make the difference between no tour, a week long tour,
or a month long tour in 2000, depending on the amount of money that we
raise.


i will very happily be the collector, and convey your good wishes to both
amy and emily.  i realize that a presentation has been held in the past, and
i'm sure that could be arranged as well.  what i'm looking for right now are
affermations that you are indeed interested, and, if the answer is to the
affirmative, volunteers to help coordinate the various regions of listees.
hte will donate the official hemp 1997 ig-honor tour posters to the members
of the region that collects the most donations.
please email me if you're interested in lending a hand.


...and be sure to check out our newly updates website at
www.honorearth.com


thanks again!

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

isn't it annoying when the same person posts four times in a day?? :o)


guys... (guys being a generic male/femail greeting in this instance...)


guys...


enough already...


i have like, eighty people who want this (and the one person who doesn't), i
think for my sanity i'm gonna call a stop now. and people in england have
been asleep the whole time this has been going on, which sucks 'cause i used
to live there...


but please. i'll hopefully offer again, when everyone's been dealt with...


thanks for your understanding!
