hey y'all,

i'm just too blinkin' tired today to write a review of last night's show
here in dallas, but suffice it to say it was amaaaazzzinnnnng!  such a
treat to see the girls in a tiny venue, standing right up against the stage
amy-side, with wonderful sound and happy performers!

here is the set list:

least complicated
gone again (broken mandolin string by amy)
collecting you
become you
power of two
yield (i love this tune :-)
hope alone
land of canaan (amy said: this used to be a slow song!)
get out the map
starkville
galileo
chickenman (set list [thank you sulli!] said reunion)
our deliverance (set list said she's saving me; emily's intro: this is song
for peace)
moment of forgiveness

here's my question:  amy played a verse of something and all i can remember
is something about a white boat coming and delivering the mail?  maybe it
was that .... anywho - does that white boat lyric ring a bell with anybody?
amy said: y'all sing a long, but none us knew what the heck she was singing!

i can't do a fashion report except to say that amy was wearing these
fabulous brown boot cloggy things with red star on them.  just wonderful!

lots of harmonica from amy.  she said she's still trying to get the hang of
it, but when she comes back this summer she'll "be a bad-ass!"

oooooh, just a wonderful, fun, inspiring, exhausting,
"one-for-the-record-books" kind of show.

peace out,

pam in big d

indigo girls get fresh on back-to-basics cd

by steve morse, globe staff, 2/22/2002

the indigo girls have come full circle. the popular georgia-based duo
began as an acoustic act, then grew ever more complicated through the
years with dense layers of electronic studio production that baffled
some of their fans. the good news is that the indigos have at last
made another rootsy, acoustic-rock disc, which appears to be the
style they do best.

''it has a purity to it, doesn't it?'' indigo girl emily saliers says
of the new cd, ''become you,'' which comes out march 5 and will be the
backbone of the group's show at the paradise next friday.

the prime force behind the return to acoustic purity, saliers says,
was bandmate amy ray.

''amy has been wanting to make an acoustic record for a while,''
saliers says. ''but i was on a roll with wanting to play electric
guitar and expanding our production. i really love some of what we
did, like the last album, 'come on now social,' but i knew amy really
wanted to get back to the roots.''

the new cd is a rejuvenating effort that spotlights the indigos'
trademark vocal harmonies, made even crisper because there are no
distracting studio techniques to cover them up. the album features the
group's core backup band, rather than the many guest musicians who
have participated in recent years.

the indigo girls have been recording for 15 years, but they've never
sounded fresher than they do on the new cd. ray sings most of the rock
tracks and saliers most of the ballads (with each contributing stunning
harmonies). several songs explore the nuances of love affairs,
including ''hope alone'' (''we were just an empty dream - too big for
hope alone to fill''), ''she's saving me,'' the mandolin-driven
''yield,'' and the new single, ''moment of forgiveness.''

elements of rock, country music, and otis redding-like r&b pop up.
there's also a touching, post-sept. 11 song of peace, ''our
deliverance.'' the song highlights the social conscience of the
indigos, who have long been active in environmental and native american
issues.

the message of ''our deliverance'' is heard in the line ''lay down your
weapon, and love your neighbor as thyself.''

''i couldn't say it any more poetically,'' saliers says. ''i had to say
it straight out. people always reference god when they're fighting wars,
that god is on their side and all that stuff. but according to
everything i've read, life is all about not warring with your neighbor,
and no nation is exempt from that rule. i just wanted to remind myself
and others about that.''
