amy ray and emily saliers, better known as the indigo girls, have  written and
performed many topical and poignant songs over their
lengthy tenure. yet even fans who've followed them closely over the  past two
decades may not recognize or remember many of the cuts
featured on their latest release rarities (epic). it's also a special  cd
designed to reveal some different sides of their musical
personality.

"it was really epic's idea," ray said. "they suggested that we do one  last
project for the fans, sort of low-key thing to mark the end of  our time on
the label. they said we could do it any way that we
wanted, and we decided to come up with some songs that we either
rarely sing or hadn't been released. we also wanted to so some covers  because
we really enjoy doing that type of thing."

the results present some surprises by the indigo girls. among them is  "let me
go easy," a beautifully sung, powerful tribute to nilak
butler, a longtime friend and environmentalist who died of ovarian  cancer.

there's also an updated version of "winthrop," a number originally  designed
to be released on the 1997 shaming of the sun featuring
saliers on piano and vocals, plus "cold as ice" one of the first songs  ray
ever wrote. there are also covers of "clampdown" by the clash and  live
versions of elton john's "mona lisas and mad hatters" and woody  guthrie's
"ramblin' round."

well known for their support of progressive political causes along  with
popularizing a sound that nicely navigates the fine line between  folk, blues
and country, ray said that there's one thing they haven't  yet done musically
that they eventually want to complete.

"we've never done a complete disc of alt.country material," ray said.  "we've
done songs in that style, but eventually we'd like to make a  full project of
alt.country. part of the problem comes in getting all  the killer songs we
need, but down the line that's something we're  going to do.
