Lisa Loeb’s highly anticipated return to the pop/rock world after immersing herself in other projects may be called No Fairy Tale, but it’s actually another charmed chapter of her storybook-like career which began in the mid-90’s. She emerged from the New York coffeehouse and club circuits with her trademark Grammy® nominated hit “Stay (I Missed You)”--the ... Read more in Amazon's Lisa Loeb Store

A fantastic opportunity to buy the first versions of many superb tracks which then made it to Lisa's first album.

Every album she does has all her heart and this is no exception.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 24 Jan 2008
By G. Ratcheson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Got mine today. While this isn't as strong as her other releases (& it isn't meant to be, these recordings are very nice acoustic demos), it's very much worth having & a yet another reminder of why LL may very well be the best singer songwriter recording today.

Disc 2 is also interesting & also worth a listen + it has 2 exclusive tracks for us collectors.

If you're new to Lisa Loeb, this isn't the place to start, but for fans this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purple Tape Lives 25 Jan 2008
By W. C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After many years of inquiry, Lisa Loeb was kind enough to re-release the infamous "Purple Tape" tape on CD. Being a long time LL fan and not having the orignal tape I decided to grab it early to get my signed copy and I'm glad I did. Of course the tunes are classic LL and they did a nice job of producing this. What I really liked was the 2nd disc that contains an interview with Lisa that explains the background of every song plus 2 live takes of "Snow Day" and "Stay". After listening to the interview I appreiate the songs and her even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars a time capsule opened... 27 Jan 2008
By Danny W. Shelby II - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
(my review for iTunes) ::
This album was originally released only on cassette tape in the early 90's, by lisa herself... before a record company & the major label albums that everyone knows her for. this recording has been in high demand by fans ever since, and lisa has been promising to release it. that day has finally come. if you want just the album, download the first 10 tracks for $9.90. tracks 11-33 are what is on the 2nd disc of the physical release, and are commentary tracks (with the exception of the 2 in-studio tracks at the end). every song is raw, acoustic, just lisa & her guitar... some of her best songs appear on this re-release, in their original form.

Great album that any Lisa fan should own. Her performance on this cd, as well as the interviews on the songs is a great insight to where she came from musically.

If you like Lisa Loeb, a very acoustic version of the songs we know. Very good!
