Originally released in 2001, The Triumphs and Travails of Orphan Mae set Laura Veirs on a course for the next decade; the first of five albums recorded with producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Sufjan Stevens, Tift Merritt) that would culminate (in a circular fashion) with 2010's July Flame.

and must say with the albums Saltbreaker and July Flame my love for her music
sky-rocketed, both are absolutely brilliant. This CD The Triumphs & Travails...
is a re-release of a 2001 album and I was expecting it to be not up to the
quality of her recent releases, but interesting just the same. I have been
pleasantly surprised that with repeated listening TTATOOM has become one of
my favorite LV CDs--it just gets better and better as I get to know it.
This CD is a bit more (or whole lot more) alt-country than her other albums
and players like Danny Barnes, Pete Erikson and Laura herself play with true
inspiration especially on songs like Orphan Mae and Jailhouse Fire.
The best of Laura Veir's music seems to take traditional folk/country/jazz
and other genres and mix & match them into a uniquely new form that is both
intelligent and soulful, this CD lives up to that description.
