I saw veek the other day and she kindly gave me leave to go through some boxes of things she was looking to give away. I took some CDs home with me. The best of these so far has been The Freedom Sessions by Sarah MacLachlan. veek explained the concept to me this way: "Someone decided that there ought to be acoustic versions of the stuff on 'Fumbling Towards Ecstasy,' so they just put this CD together. It's really awesome, and there's a multimedia thing too." Wow. It was so good I wanted to eat the CD. I haven't felt this way since the first time I listened to The New Bossa Nova a while back. "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" has always been my favorite MacLachlan, and this CD made me love it even more. It is jazzy and folksy and delicious. Give it a try, if you like her. The Minuteman Library system has four copies, if you're in this part of the world.
