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

hkf,


here's a review of the stanhope, nj show earlier this evening.  emily kicked
it all off by introducing this as the "first show on the new tour."


since everyone is anxious, the setlist was:
1.  least complicated
2.  shame on you
3.  trouble
4.  gone again
5.  ghost
6.  three hits
7.  cold beer (and remote control)
8.  tried to be true
9.  or (with rose polanzani)
10.  faye tucker
11.  get out the map
12.  love's recovery
13.  compromise
14.  sister
15.  galileo
16.  go
encore set:
17.  kid fears
18.  closer to fine


they toured with a full band.  band members were:
bass-claire kenney
keyboard-carol isaacs
cello-caroline dale
drums-john reynolds


highlights of the show, "gone again" is absolutely fabulous live.  the
audience could really get into the beat and sway of the song.  emily's voice
just carries on the song, floating up there in the rafters.  hearing "three
hits" live is great.  hadn't heard that one before.  "cold beer and remote
control" will be one of the great songs off the new album.  it is phenomenal
live!


however, the night wasn't all roses.  "faye tucker" while good, was weak.
it appears they haven't fully worked out the arrangement with the whole band
yet.  a+e were tight, but john's drums and claire's bass weren't with them.
which brings me to "compromise".  they ended the song rather abruptly.  it
was awkward.  the song just seemed to drop off without any conclusion.
perhaps that's the desire effect, but i don't think so because amy looked a
little suprised.


but then, the show finished on a high note with "go."  this is an absolutely
exceptional song live.  i'll digress and say that "go" on the no boundaries
cd is weak (perhaps the weakest song on the entire cd).  you can't hear the
lyrics and it lacks heart.  however, live, the song really blossoms in way
it can't on the cd.  perhaps those in audience while it was being recorded
felt it, but it doesn't come across on the cd.  watch for this one, it will
cream your shorts!!  i promise.


finally, some general thoughts.  i can understand wanting to tour this
summer (and i can understand us wanting to be there), however, it does pose
problems.  the emotional intensity just wasn't there tonight (both in the
audience and on-stage).  i've seen ig in much better form.  part of the
problem is that the audience hasn't heard the new songs.  therefore, during
each of the 8 (7 if don't count rose's song "or") it turned into social hour
and everybody had to talk and try to pick up the person next to them.  very
annoying and extremely rude.  additionally, they could have used some extra
practice time with the band to tighten things up.


the venue had problems.  sound was spotty in places.  it was an intermediate
size venue (not as big as their big shows, but bigger than their fall/winter
1997 club tour).


on a whole, i'd rate the show on a scale of 1-10 a 7 (in general for a live
music event).  however, for an indigo girls show, it was only about a 5 or
6.  they're capable of so much better and i'm sure they will be up to it in
another few days or weeks.


finally, a note on the opening act rose polanzani.  she was really good.
surprisingly good.  however, the audience was very loud so it was almost
impossible to hear her.  it's definitely worth arriving to the show early to
hear her play.


as for the listmeet.  i didn't meet anyone in the food court area.  however,
i was privileged enough to have met shana (knave4), kristin (kemejets), le
anne (calliopea), and sara at the show.  they were generous enough to share
their blanket (and nice viewing location) and we shared our cookies.


so that's stanhope in a nutshell.  sorry for being so long with my review!!!


cheers,
l'sly

subject: [ig-news] "climb against the odds" soundtrack release


pbs/warner bros. records to release all-star 'climb against the odds'
soundtrack


award-winning breast cancer documentary to premiere on national public  


television


burbank, calif., aug. 5 /prnewswire/ -- pbs records, an alliance between the
public broadcasting service and warner bros. records, will release the
soundtrack to the award-winning documentary climb against the odds on august
24th.  the soundtrack is being released in anticipation of the documentary's
premiere on national public television in advance of october's national
breast cancer month.


artists lending their words, voices and music to this magnificent documentary
include k.d. lang, paula cole, the indigo girls, mary chapin carpenter, beth
nielsen chapman, nancy griffith, diane warren, billie myers and sweet honey
in the rock.  cellist jami sieber composed an electric cello piece
exclusively for the film and an original theme song was written and recorded
by karen pernick.  the original score was composed by emmy-winning composer
laura karpman.  all songwriters, publishers, artists and record labels have
contributed their songs, music and recordings gratis for inclusion in the
documentary and the soundtrack album.  skywalker sound, a division of lucas
digital ltd, llc donated all facilities necessary for audio post-production
for both the cd and film.


"whatever you need ... " responded the indigo girls (amy ray and emily
saliers), when they were told of the project.  the two grammy award-winners
were the first artists to offer their music, "if they can climb a mountain,
we can give them our song.  making great music is wonderful and now we have
the power to make history together."


climb against the odds is a project of the breast cancer fund, a progressive
national non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating breast cancer.  the
documentary is presented by public television station kqed/san francisco and
will air on public television stations across the country. climb against the
odds is distributed by american public television, a major source of
programming for the nation's public television stations.  viewers should
check local listings for air dates and times in their area.


a major supporter of the project has been the lilith fair concert series
spearheaded by singer-songwriter sarah mclachlan who offered the breast
cancer fund booth space at every tour stop for the purpose of distributing
information about the project and educational materials that women and men
need to know about breast health.


narrated by academy award and emmy winning actress olympia dukakis, climb
against the odds is an inspirational story of female courage, hope and
survival in the face of breast cancer.  the film documents the 1998
expedition of 12 women -- 5 of whom are breast cancer survivors and 7 young,
healthy women, 5 from princeton university -- attempting to climb alaska's
mount mckinley.  at 20,320 feet mckinley is the highest peak in north america
and located just below the arctic circle; it is also one of the most
treacherous in the world to climb.  together, the climbers strove to bring an
intergenerational awareness to this disease that threatens one out of every
eight women in the u.s., and this riveting documentary demonstrates the power
of camaraderie and determination in the face of grave challenges.


the documentary also highlights the touching story of marcy ely wilson who,
having survived her first breast cancer diagnosis in 1991, trained for the
1998 mckinley climb for 2 years.  marcy's cancer returned for the third time
in the form of a brain tumor that at the last moment kept her from climbing.  
nevertheless, she accompanied the team to the mountain to provide
inspiration.  while the climbers battled the elements, marcy fought cancer
one last time.  climb against the odds is dedicated to marcy.


a compelling call to join the struggle against the most commonly diagnosed
cancer worldwide and the number one killer of women between the ages of 25
and 55, climb against the odds is already earning international acclaim at
various film festivals and screenings including a special screening at
telluride mountain for significant documentary contribution; finalist
documentary, chicago film festival; feature presentation, half moon bay film
festival and the san francisco gay and lesbian film festival;  best
documentary, imagefest, palo alto; second audience choice, tahoe
international film festival; best of green extreme, salt spring, victoria and
vancouver canada;  and finalist documentary, arizona international film
festival.


the national broadcast of climb against the odds is made possible with the
underwriting support of farmers insurance group of companies and brita
products company.  the climb against the odds soundtrack is produced by
leslie ann jones and jeanne rizzo.  the climb against the odds documentary
was executive produced by jeanne rizzo and produced by michelson carlson
productions in association with kqed inc. and the breast cancer fund, with
international distribution by grb entertainment and home video distribution
through new video's docurama label.  other sponsors of climb against the odds
include volkswagen of america, north face and mountain travel sobek.


the breast cancer fund was founded in 1992 to innovate and accelerate the
response to the breast cancer crisis through research, action and policy
initiatives.  the breast cancer fund raises money from individuals,
businesses and foundations through high visibility activities, such as the
momentous mckinley climb, to fund cutting-edge research, educational programs
and patient support projects.


a complete list of artists and musical tracks included on the album is as
follows: "happy girl" by beth nielsen chapman, "across the great divide" by
nanci griffith, "me" by paula cole, "love can move mountains" words and music
by diane warren, "against the odds" by karen pernick, "mother, daughter,
sister, lover" by billie myers, "tell it by heart" by jami sieber, "just keep
me moving" by k.d. lang, "marcy's theme" by laura karpman, "why walk when you
can fly" by mary chapin carpenter, "everything in its own time" by indigo
girls and "fulani chant" by sweet honey in the rock.
