there were two rooms for chat... one had people who got there before 6pm or
so, the other had an 'ask a question' box at the bottom (i had done a little
research in the chat beforehand, always good to do, and knew what to
expect). you had to log back in if you were in the first room and you'd get
the second room, by which time it was too late to tell the other folks about
it...


anyhow, i had a couple of questions answered... but you couldn't highlight
the transcript to copy it.


a coupla questions (bearing in mind not all the questions and answers showed
up for everyone, so these may not be matched up) that interested me. in
fact, most of the questions were cool...


me: have you given any serious thought to an official reissue some of your
pre-strange fire releases??
emily - ha, ha ha, - the answer is no! a lot of those early songs make me
cringe, my writing!
amy - mine to, it sucks. we might end up bootlegging them ourselves. and let
them be bootlegs and online trading.


(how little do they know...)


twm: emily, are you aware of the similarity betwen "philosophy of loss" and
the sesame street song "i don't want to live on the moon"?? :o) ??
emily - my god, yes!


me: *basically* coming to england soon?
igs - *paraphrasing* winter or springtime perhaps/maybe

<< i was browing at a record store and saw a double compliation cd called
something like "folk, gospel and blues - will the circle ever end" and was
surprised to see galileo on it. i think it's just the regular studio version.
does anyone else know about it? i didn't see this on lifeblood's site. >>


the folk, gospel & blues collection is part of a series of cds that have been
released by sony music under the collective title "sony music 100
years:soundtrack for a century". there are 12 2-disc collections in different
genres & a 4-disc classical edition- they're all collected in a great big
*awesome* box set called... um sony music 100 years:soundtrack for a century.
<grin> the track *is* the normal, regular "galileo" we all know & love...
there's one picture of them in this big coffee table book that's included in
the box set- circa rites of passage- and there's a bit about them that goes
as follows:
galileo/indigo girls
the combined strengths of amy ray and emily saliers-as grammy-winning,
multi-platinum singer-songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and environmental
and sociopolitical activists (especially on behalf of native american
rights)- afford them an unique platform from which to address today's real
life-or-death issues. with a myriad of friends at the ready from the realms
of folk, pop, world beat, country, and alternative (like the guest list on
this career-defining single), the indigo girls have cross-pollinated music
and social messages like no other group in the 1990s.

peace,
rick

subject: [ig-news] star bar, tabernacle show


[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which

hey,


went to the star bar show on thursday afternoon.  it might have been the most
intimate venue i've ever seen them play.  (it's slightly smaller than eddie's
attic and the point, too, i think.)  they let a handful of people in before
the
soundcheck started.  we got ushered to the downstairs bar while everyone else
was lined up outside.  so about 8 or 10 of us were in the stairwell listening
while amy & emily were warming up.  it was a silly but fun moment, kind of
like
being trapped in an elevator.  emily's camouflage pants got the thumbs down.
the show was nothing but standing room.  they sounded really good.  i tried to
also tape it off the radio.  i plugged my stereo into one of those timers for
christmas tree lights.  it worked, except they got started so late that the
tape
ran out before they finished "closer to fine".  their voices weren't mic'ed
well
enough over the radio, though.  they sounded better in person.


the show at the tabernacle was great.  i'd seen them once on this tour when
they
played homecoming at the university of georgia.  this was _much_ better.  the
crowd _was_ great.  i think the venue had a lot to do it.  the tabernacle is
excellent.  the general admission area is so close and the stage is slightly
elevated and the floor is slightly angled downward so you can see over the
people in front of you very well.  the two balconies are also quite close
in and
the ceiling is so high that the acoustics are excellent.  the other thing
that's
a factor is that their show on this tour has a very nice balance of hard v
soft,
electric v acoustic, guitars v mandolin/banjo, quiet listening v singalongs.
really an oustanding mix.


didn't write down the setlist, but highlights for me were "trouble", "shed
your
skin" (featuring amy's best rock star posing -- still wish the instrument jam
was _tons_ longer than just a few bars), "sister" (mesmerizing), "ozilline"
(you
could tell that blair was trying to push the tempo faster while amy was trying
to slow it down; the tension added to the dramatic effect of it), "cold
beer and
remote control", "faye tucker" and "andy".


they had a new guitarist sitting in with them (just for these two shows?)
who's
from sheryl crow's band.  he wasn't noticeable except for excellent slide
guitar
on "andy".


outstanding show.
