TORI AMOS Hey Jupiter (Original 1996 US 5-track CD single includes The Dakota Version and the live tracks Sugar Honey Professional Widow - Merry Widow Version and Somewhere Over The Rainbow tri-fold digipak picture sleeve)
It was an earlier five-song collection that helped introduce Tori Amos to the masses with a quiet cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." There's nothing quite so inspired on Hey Jupiter, which gathers together a remixed version of the title track and four live performances. The remix adds a few high-tech touches at the edges of the song, without either improving or detracting from the original. But fans may be happy with Amos's between-song chatter and an achingly fragile reading of "Somewhere over the Rainbow." --Steve Appleford

The rest of the tracks included in the EP are live renditions of "Sugar" (a b-side from 1992's LITTLE EARTHQUAKES), "Honey" (a b-side from 1994's UNDER THE PINK), "Professional Widow" (an album track from BOYS FOR PELE), and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (a cover of Judy Garland's classic tune from the film THE WIZARD OF OZ). The live tracks are great in and of themselves, but we're also treated to Amos's humorous and insightful anecdotes between songs, which is one of the best parts of her live shows. Her fragile, stunning rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" displays Amos's amazing talent as a musician.
If you are looking to add some EP's and CD singles to your Tori collection, be sure to add this one. In fact, you may want to start with this one to give you a taste of what you're in for. Dim the lights, open your mind, and take it all in...
#1. Hey Jupiter (The Dakota Version)- One of the two greatest songs Tori has ever done, second only to her supreme achievement...the live version of 'Cooling.' (Check out the video too. It's one of her best!)
#2. Sugar (Live)- This is a song that never deserved B-side status. Tori knew that and so she beefed it up into a dynamite rock song and included it in her '98 tour and on the live side of 'To Venus and Back.'
#3. Honey (Live)- No other song recorded by Tori could possibly be this inexplicably absent from an LP. The masterful studio version is available on the 'Cornflake Girl' maxi-single. Buy it today. It's easily one of her top 5 and as she suggests, was her personal favorite from the 'Under the Pink' sessions.
#4. Professional Widow (Live)- It's great to have a live recording of a piece from 'Boys for Pele.' (Note: It's quite different from the studio version, a very risky venture to be sure...Tori really goes out on a limb. She admits as much!). The video recording of her NY concert contains some memorable performances of various songs from the 'Pele' sessions if you're curious as well.
#5. Somewhere over the Rainbow (Live)- This ain't Judy Garland! Tori really makes this song her own in this bittersweet and very intimate rendition. The recording is close, but suits her style most beautifully.
For what you get, and for this price...it's a steal!
(P.S. Tori is positively flaky and, at times, hilarious on her pre-song banter too) Wow!

Personally, I feel that the top reason for buying this CD should be for the B sides it contains. Tori's organ version of "Professional Widow" is truly genius.Published on Oct. 20 2001 by Loren Fieldhouse
