Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from the goddess Nov. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Hey Jupiter EP" a few years ago when I was on my Tori binge. I think it was just shortly before I got to see her live for the first time and right around when I started getting heavily into her music. One day at a local record shop, I bought a slew of singles and EPs by Tori Amos, "Hey Jupiter EP" was one of those purchases. I haven't listened to the EP in a long time so I decided to throw it in. I always loved the song "Hey Jupiter" from a very difficult album to listen to "Boys For Pele". After listening to the Dakota version of "Hey Jupiter", I am quickly reminded which version I love more and that is the Dakota version. I still love the "Boys For Pele" version but I do believe that the Dakota version is vastly superior. The primary reason I bought this EP was to hear Tori's interpretation of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". It is a breathtaking cover. I was simply blown away the fragile, delicate vocals and melodies. Tori Amos is one of the few artists who I love when she covers a particular song. She makes the song her own. I also enjoyed the live tracks of "Sugar", "Honey", and "Professional Widow". I particular enjoyed Tori's brief explaination of "Sugar". I found that rather humorous. Her little anctedotes during her concert performances are one of the reasons why I love seeing Tori perform live. "Hey Jupiter EP" is a brief reminder of my concert experiences of seeing Tori Amos perform live.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional EP!!! June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard the album version of "Hey Jupiter" on 1996's BOYS FOR PELE, I thought it was the most beautiful song singer-songwriter Tori Amos had created. When I learned of a remix of the song, I was rather weary, since the LP version seemed so flawless; but upon listening to the "Dakota Version" included in this EP, I was blown away by Amos's ability to take a perfect song and make it perfect in a completely new light, in an alternate universe, if you will. The added strings and bass in the remix take away the quiet stillness of the original version, while maintaining some sort of softness and darkness, and utter desperation. More often than not, when I want to hear this song, it's the remix that I tend to listen to as it entails much more complex emotions.
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tori's masterpiece awaits you! Aug. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
This maxi-single is an absolute 'must have.' Here's what you get.
#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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true gift from the red-headed goddess July 16 2002
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This EP shows how much Tori Amos loves her fans, for this is truly a magical collection of songs. The Dakota version of "Hey Jupiter" somehow manages to be even more beautiful and powerful than the original version from the Boys For Pele CD. Then we have four live performances that really highlight Tori's personal interaction with her audience. She personally introduces the first three, while audience members chaotically shout out one song request after another. "Sugar" is a marvelous song that inexplicably never appeared on a full album. Another live performance of "Sugar" made its way on to her later To Venus and Back release, but that does nothing to take away from the classic performance offered here. Next is "Honey," which Tori describes as her favorite song from the Under the Pink album--however, the song was inexplicably cut from the final release of that CD (because, Tori admits, she was a "ding-a-ling"). "Honey" deserves its place among Tori's very best songs. The most interesting (and weird) track on this EP is the Merry Widow version of "Professional Widow." The song begins rather slowly and darkly, accompanied by a Gothic-style organ, and the essence of the song continually builds up toward a raucous ending. This live version is quite unlike what you will hear on Boys For Pele. Finally, Tori delivers a soft, mellifluous rendition of Judy Garland's trademark song. I consider Judy Garland to be the greatest singer to ever live, and I would normally endorse jail time for any performer covering one of her songs, but Tori's version of "Over the Rainbow" is a sensitive, respectful, and perfectly acceptable rendition. In this case, EP stands for essentially perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars This single is amazing
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the disc speak for itself.
Tori Amos' singles/EPs are usually good treats because they feature interesting remixes of the eponymous album versions, and sometimes some great covers and superb b-sides. Read more
