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

hallo folks,

i was driving from dallas to austin this past sunday around 8 pm and was
flipping through radio stations, when i heard, "epic" and "atlanta" in the
same sentence... turns out that (as i suspected) ig were playing live on a
radio show called e-town.  i don't remember what all they played, but it did
include mof, our deliverence, galileo,etc.  there was another bluegrass
artist that played, and i can't remember his name, but i really liked the
music.  and the ceo of patagonia was there talking about eco friendly
products like solar panels and organic cotton.  there was a nice interview
with a+e, discussing their activism, with a kinda funny quip about brittany
spears thrown in.  the musicians all sounded great and they ended with a
really beautiful rendition of shenandoh.

[...]

and, i think at some point someone inquired about amy's belt buckle.  at the
austin show, i think it was a school bus, even though i thought it was a
train until i scooted up close to the front.  fabulous show.  super fun
night.

that's all i have.
cheers,
amy teplow
austin, tx

subject: [ig-news] billboard review

hey folks,

this review's from the billboard site - shame they couldn't get
the name of the album correct (!)...

indigo girls
album title: becoming you
producer(s): peter collins
genre: pop
label/catalog number: epic 86401
source: print
originally reviewed: march 16, 2002


if there's ever proof that an act doesn't need radio or mtv support
in order to thrive, it's the enduring team of emily saliers and amy
ray (aka indigo girls). for more than a decade, the girls have
consistently sold millions of records, as they've undeniably tried
less and less to court industry sectors that will likely ignore
their smarter-than-average brand of pop. instead, they've wisely
opted to simply follow their creative muses. with becoming you, they
offer their strongest set in years, as they also revisit the lean,
acoustic sound of their salad days. that said, gorgeous, finely
crafted tunes like ray's "moment of forgiveness" and saliers' "hope
alone" are not retreads. rather, these songs are far more complex
than the artists were capable of 10 years ago. when you have an act
that never stops growing, it's no wonder that countless fans follow
their every movewithout the urging of radio or video programmers.

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

did you all know that the indigo girls become you album was #1 on a billboard
chart last week?

apparently, billboard now has a chart for internet album sales and guess which
album was #1?

i think that's what russell carter meant when he said that the internet
folks "led the charge" in getting become you to #30 on the regular billboard
album chart in his web site announcement.

#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1#1!
