Product Description

Product Description

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

Sarah McLachlan's 1996 release, "Rarities, B-Sides, & Other Stuff," is exactly what it says it is, a collection of rare & hard-to-find tracks that Sarah recorded between 1989 and 1996---some for movie soundtracks, some as single B-sides, some live stuff, and some remixes. It's probably not an essential purchase for the casual Sarah fan, but for the diehard Sarah follower, it's an excellent batch of rare Sarah material. Sarah's cover songs are all marvelously done: the controversial XTC song "Dear God," the Billie Holiday classic "Gloomy Sunday," the Joni Mitchell staple "Blue," and Gordon Lightfoot's "Song For A Winter's Night." "I Will Remember You," which Sarah recorded for the film, "The Brothers McMullen," is a beautiful song, and one of Sarah's most popular tunes. The pretty "Full Of Grace" later appeared on Sarah's "Surfacing" album, and the Sarah favorite "Drawn To The Rhythm" is included here in a great live version. As for the remixes, they work for the most part, especially the remix of "Fear," which is given a powerful, driving rhythm track. Only two tracks come up short: "As The End Draws Near" is an obscure song by the group Manufacture that Sarah did a guest lead vocal on, but the song is a little *too* electronic-sounding for my taste, and the remix of Sarah's signature tune "Possession" just doesn't work, as all the beauty of the original song is gone. But overall, "Rarities, B-Sides & Other Stuff" is a definite must-purchase for Sarah McLachlan's most-devoted fans. If you love Sarah's music, then you can't go wrong adding this CD to your collection.

I got this on import in Canada a number of years ago (before 'Surfacing' even was released). It is one of the better thrown together albums that exists and was clearly not intended as a concieved disk (one that is not so good is McLachlan's 'Remix' disk).
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.

KC Ma, why don't you take your own advice and keep your religious beliefs out of your review? Your ranting had nothing to do with the CD, and, believe it or not, no one is really interested in your religious beliefs, or lack thereof. Please don't lump all Christians (or any other religion) into groups of idiots, unable to see and understand other viewpoints or beliefs. We are not all as shortsighted as you would have others think.
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!

This is a review for the music not religious beliefs... And to the Christians who are appalled by what 'Dear God' says... cut it out... As a non-Christian, I have every right to be just as offended to have your beliefs thrown at me and forced on me, as if you are right, and I am wrong.
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!!
