Wonderful trip through the world,
This review is from: Leave Your Sleep [2 Cd] (Audio CD)
Natalie Merchant made an incredible album: Leave your sleep. As a songwriter she went to work with existing poetry, which is pretty balsy for someone who is used to sing her own words. Then she put world music to the words. The result is mesmerizing. Image country, polka, folk, China, blues, Irish flutes, all of it wonderfully blended with classic words, performed by authentic musicians who are without a doubt the best in their field. That's 'Leave your sleep'.
I own over 3000 cd's (all kinds of) , but this is one of the ten albums I would safe first from the fire.
