FYI. Tomorrow, Sunday, June 26th, Amy Ray is the guest on Steve Earle's radio show on Air America, The Revolution Starts Now, and one of the songs she picked to play is Patty's Florida. You can tune in to the webcast (and see the records she picked to play) at http://shows.airamericaradio.com/revolutionstartsnow/ or you can wait for the show to be archived and listen to it on Steve Earle's web site at http://www.steveearle.net/radio/

I guess I'm taking my chances
Giving up the ring, throwing in the gloves
I guess I'm taking my chances
Trading in my things For a couple wings on a little white dove
And one big love, one big love

If anyone is going to be able to make it to an Indigo show this month, be sure you buy some of their merch; t-shirts, cds, stickers, caps, etc. They are donating all profits to a Katrina relief fund that has been set up to help human and animal refugees...and they are also using biodiesel fuel in the tourbus.

this is my song, oh god of all the nations
a song of peace for lands afar and mine
this is my home, the country where my heart is
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine

but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine
my country's skies are bluer than the ocean
and sunlight beams on clover leaf and pine

but other lands have sunlight too and clover
and skies are everywhere as blue as mine
oh hear my song, oh god of all the nations
a song of peace for their land and for mine

-- "Finlandia"

Eeeee! Yay Liz! I saw them on October 1 in Cary, and I must say they were in fine form. Seeing them with a band was so exciting...and seeing them again was balm for my soul, as it always is. They're so wonderful. And their new cd is absolutely. fucking. incredible. Emily is sassy like she hasn't been in a while, and Amy...well. Amy has yet to do any wrong in my eyes.

*grabs Liz's hands and happy-dances around in circles*

I love mah gurls.

I've seen "mah gurls" several times but never with a band. That would definately be killer.

Yeah, it was great - it was Carol Isaacs & Clare Kenny, who have both played on many IG cds, as you probably already know, and Matt Chamberlain.
They sounded really great, seemed to be having a fabulous time - at least I thought so, there were lots of smiles from them, which was really cute. I heart them so much.

And I've been on an Indigo kick for the past couple days, only stopping today to listen to Bob Dylan's Modern Times, which my dad got me for my birthday, but that's another thread.

Yea, at the Cary show, Matt Chamberlain was the only one who didn't seem to gel with the other people in the band...he screwed up a couple of times, dropped a couple of measures during guitar solos and everyone else had to catch up, etc (yes, I notice these things, does that make me neurotic?). But I guess that's to be expected since Clare and Carol have been in Amy and Emily's corner for upwards of ten years and he's the "new" guy in the bunch...and he did pretty well considering he isn't Brady Blade, hehe. Clare is an unbelievable musician although she's not my favorite bassist to see with the Girls...as good as she is, Sara Lee is better. :) And Carol is fucking SICK. That woman plays about twenty instruments to performance standard. Seriously, wtf.

They did seem to be having a blast. It was so fun. I was on my feet and dancing the entire set, and I wasn't even tired at the end of it. Just exhilarated.

still bingeing on the new record, btw,

Oh man, oh man, oh man.

I am some kind of loving on this record, too. Being mostly an Emily fan since my interest in the girls, oh, about 17 years ago, I have to say Amy has earned a new respect from me. Her songs on this record are absolutely amazing. And Emily's too, of course.

I apologize if the Indigo Girls fans on this forum are already aware of this, but there is a fan-site (someone on "The Roches" message board mentioned it) that has several hundred live Indigo Girls recordings available for download (and more to come, according to the site). The shows are posted as "flac" files, but some have mp3s as well. The fan-site is: lifeblood. The live recordings are on the "bootlegs" page.

I didn't know lifeblood had downloads!!!!!!!! Man it's been a while since I've been there (Lifeblood's the longest-running IG fan site out there - it's been there since the internet started, pretty much, and the gal(s) that run it have run the IG list-serv for years). Thanks so much for this info! :D

So, thoughts on the new record?

I bought my copy yesterday and I've listened to it about five times now. I think Amy definitely has a much stronger set of songs than Emily, this time out.

With the exception of a handful of notable songs, I feel like Emily has been in a rut, for the past few albums. Personally, I'm starting to groan every time songs like "I'll Change, "I Believe in Love," and "Come On Home" show up. At this point, they're all starting to bleed together for me. It's not necessarily that they're poorly written - they're not. It's just that they're all so similar. I'm sick of it. Of her work on this album, I really like "Digging for Your Dream" and I think I like "Love of Our Lives" - but I think I'd like it more if it was transposed down a half step or two.

Amy, however, seems consistently fresh to me. I like every song she has on here. Can't decide on a favourite - it's a three way toss up between "True Romantic," "Second Time Around," and "Ghost of the Gang."

So yeah. Solid album, due mostly to Amy's contributions, I think. I'm excited to see them next month, in Portland! :)
