Never released in the U.S., this 1996 collection features 13of the Canadian singer/ songwriter's best B-sides, covers,rarities & soundtrack contributions, 1987-1996. Housed in adouble gatefold slipcase, it includes 'Possession' (RabbitIn The Moon Remix), 'I Will Remember You' (from the film'Last Of The Mohicans'), covers of XTC's 'Dear God', GordonLightfoot's 'Song For A Winter's Night' & Joni Mitchell's'Blue', plus live cuts & more mixes! A Nettwerk release.The full title is 'Rarities, B-sides, And Other Stuff'.
The Sarah McLachlan cottage industry rolls with Rarities. This disc of hard-to-finds and extended remixes offers some choice morsels for casual fans and a whole plateful for the faithful. The Freedom Sessions proved that McLachlan can do some nice stuff with a cover tune, and she offers a sweet handful here. Fellow Canadians Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell get lushed-out respectively with "Song For A Winter's Night" and "Blue," and McLachlan also works her magic with XTC's "Dear God" and the Billie Holiday classic "Gloomy Sunday." Each is dark, but engaging, like so much of McLachlan's own material, including this set's brooding "Full of Grace" and "I Will Remember You." --Michael Ruby

Some great covers ("Dear G-d", "Gloomy Sunday"& "Song for a Winter's Night")exist on here. "Dear G-d" is even better than XTC's original version.
I love the version of "Fear" and "Into the Fire" - but the true highlight of the disk is "As the End Draws Near".
I'm not sure how many more times "I Will Remember You" (a poor man's version of her own "I Will Not Forget You") or "Blue" can appear on some release of McLachlan's. Though both were good in their day - they have grown tiresome w/me. I skip right over them on whatever disk they appear.
I was also disappointed that 'Surfacing' ended up including "Full of Grace", which appeared here first. It's a GREAT song - but I figured that left room for a new song.
For the few songs here that aren't available other places - it's definately worth the purchase price.
I don't care whether Ms. McLachlan is an athiest, agnostic, lesbian, WHATEVER. Her voice is incredible, and I find her music enchanting. This CD is especially great because I'd been looking EVERYWHERE for the song "Full of Grace" after hearing it on an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." (Yes, I'm a huge fan...imagine, a grown, intelligent woman, a grandmother, a Christian, actually able to enjoy a show that doesn't "promote" her own beliefs!! Shocking!) You don't have to agree with what the songs say to recognize the talent she has, and to be able to appreciate it. Open your ears and your mind, and Ms. McLachlan will give you a wonderful gift, the gift of beautiful music. Enjoy!
Why boycott an artist because she does not believe in the same God you believe in? She is only expressing her own belief, not telling someone else to boycott your Bible is she? So while she has done no harm to you... you are still so offended that you want others to join you to boycott her? Censorship? If she rejects the God that you believe in so faithfully... she must not be heard?
btw... Christians have no consistancy in their practices anyways... a few hundred years ago, it's alright to pillage other countries, take away their language, and "convert" them... and not so long ago, you guys aren't so kind to the gay/lesbian community... Who knows where "Christians" are supposed to stand years from now... goes to show how arbitrary your beliefs are :)
pps... oh i was wrong... it's all very consistant... must continue to wage war and censor and destroy all the disbelieving pagans... and convert them... wow... i'm in a zombie movie... hehehe... eat my brain!!

This is sort of like a collection of greatest hits for Sarah, which explains why only 5 of the 13 (yes, 13) songs are not remixed or done live. Read morePublished on July 19 2004
