    Paradise is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings

    Natalie Merchant's career began when, as a college student, she joined the seminal alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs. Serving as lead vocalist, lyricist, and sometime pianist, Merchant released five critically acclaimed studio albums with the band, including the platinum-selling In My Tribe (1987), Blind Man's Zoo (1989), Our Time in Eden (1992), and MTV Unplugged (1993). Merchant left the group in 1993, after 12 years, to record her first solo album. Tigerlily (1995) was certified five-times platinum, and was followed by the platinum Ophelia (1998), Natalie Merchant Live (1999), and Motherland (2001).


    In 2010, Merchant returned with a thematic double album entitled Leave Your Sleep, her debut for Nonesuch Records. A meditation on childhood and mothering, the anthology comprised 19th and 20th century American and British classic children's poetry by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, Christina Rossetti, Robert Graves, Edward Lear, and E.E. Cummings that Merchant had set to music. The result was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, with The Wall Street Journal calling it an ideal fit between poetic and musical forms, and the Independent, a hugely ambitious and beautifully realized double album.

    Natalie Merchant Tigerlily On Numbered Limited-Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP


    Half-Speed Mastered From The Original Master Tapes For Astounding Sonics And Detail


    Five-Times Platinum! 1995 Gem A Vocal Tour-De-Force


    The 10,000 Maniacs were at their peak when group founder and scintillating vocalist Natalie Merchant announced that she was leaving the band to pursue a solo career. It took her four months to record Tigerlily, a gorgeously detailed folk-pop debut that became a permanent fixture on the album charts for a year after its 1995 release.


    The five-times platinum set spawned three giant hits-"Wonder," "Carnival," and the haunting "Jealousy"-that simultaneously crossed over to the pop, adult-contemporary, and mainstream singles charts. It's easy to understand why. On Tigerlily, Merchant turns in a vocal performance for the ages, spinning majestic webs of mellow atmosphere woven with rhythmic textures and low-key movements. This is a mood masterpiece.


    Remastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectable version of Tigerlily mines every last nuance and delicate tone from this intimate gem. Merchant's beautiful voice-her precious coos, soulful inflections, and whisper-soft purrs harken back to the Jazz Era-is presented with an up-close clarity and full-bodied richness that enhance the album's deeply emotional feel. She uses volume and pitch as a painter utilizes shades on a canvas. Subtle and tender, her phrasing and crescendos underscore the personal nature of the lyrics. Merchant sings about mature topics most songwriters lack the courage to explore, probing the painful loss of a longtime partner on "Beloved Wife," actor River Phoenix's tragic death on "River," and life-altering myths on "San Andreas Fault."


    The vocalist's bracing conviction is matched by small-scale acoustic frameworks that don't let a note go to waste. And Mobile Fidelity's engineers worked to make sure you hear all of them. Aligned on a wide soundstage, the discerning mix of Hammond organs, pianos, chamber percussion, and bluesy guitars come across with their understated intentions intact. Balances are superb, dynamics are grand. There is no better way to experience and enjoy the rich sonic fabrics on this album. The results will leave you hypnotized.
