    A New Photo of "A Piano: The Collection" From Barnes & Noble!

    Wednesday, August 23, 2006 | 18:16 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    Barnes and Noble has updated their listing for A Piano: The Collection with a new photo showing the contents of the box: a wide-booklet and the five CDs which are packaged in digipacks with (surprise!) piano-themed cover artwork. Looks lovely…but it’s still not going to fit on my CD shelf!

    Thanks to Darrell for tipping us off.

    New York's WFUV Shows The Birthday Love

    Wednesday, August 23, 2006 | 05:43 UTC | Posted by Violet | TV/Radio/Web

    DJ Darren DeVivo of radio station 90.7 (WFUV) in New York did a four-song tribute for Tori’s birthday around noon on the 22nd. He gave Tori’s rarer recordings some air time:

    Strange Fruit
    Angie
    A Case Of You
    Heart Of Gold

    We’re very impressed!

    [Addendum: A lot of you have wondered, “Why all covers? Couldn’t they have included at least one of Tori’s originals?” Turns out it was billed as a collection of Tori covers during the broadcast. View the entire playlist for the August 22nd program.]

    Happy Birthday, Tori!

    Tuesday, August 22, 2006 | 08:48 UTC | Posted by Beth | Cherries,RAINN

    Tori turns 43 today! We hope that she (and you) are doing something delicious to celebrate.

    For instance, if you happen to be in the Nashville area, we recommend your delicious activity be attending the Nashville RAINN Benefit concert at 3rd and Lindsley on Thursday, August 24th. The evening will feature performances by The Gabe Dixon Band, Garrison Starr, Rachael Sage, Sandra McCracken and Tyler James and promises to be a fun way to help raise some money and awareness for RAINN!

    Matt Chamberlain Touring With The Indigo Girls This Fall

    Monday, August 21, 2006 | 04:53 UTC | Posted by Beth | Them

    According to Emily Saliers, Matt Chamberlain is taking his sticks on the road with the Indigo Girls this fall. Emily had some kind words about Matt, who is new to their fanbase but no stranger to Toriphiles:

    We’re also fortunate to have Clare Kenny on bass, Carol Isaacs on keys, and for the first time, Matt Chamberlain on drums. He played on “Despite Our Differences.” You’re going to love him.

    This, of course, means Matt won’t be in the studio or touring with Tori during these months. But we can share him, right?

    Thanks to Matthew for the heads-up!

    Boys for Pele included in 25 Most Influential Albums

    Tuesday, August 15, 2006 | 05:55 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles,Toriphiles

    Toriphile Matthew Richards wrote an article for the New Jersey-based Home News Tribune’s Teen Scene section called 25 Most Influential Albums, featuring Tori’s Boys for Pele at No. 24. She’s in pretty good company: the list includes Tapestry by Carole King, Ladies of the Canyon by Joni Mitchell, Nevermind by Nirvana, and Thriller by Michael Jackson.

    Of Boys for Pele, Matt writes:

    One of the most notable CDs in my list is Tori Amos’ “Boys For Pele.” I am obsessed with Tori, so picking only one CD by her was certainly the most difficult part of this undertaking. I decided on “Boys For Pele” because it is her most complex, intricate work, with beautifully woven songs around the concept of a breakup.

    Thanks for letting us know about the article, Matt!

    Upcoming Tori TV

    Friday, August 11, 2006 | 03:24 UTC | Posted by woj | TV/Radio/Web

    RAVE HD, a High Definition TV channel available on DISH Network satellite TV, will be airing the episode of Soundstage featuring Tori several times over the next few days (all times Eastern):

    • Friday, August 11: 2:00PM
    • Saturday, August 12: 8:00PM
    • Sunday, August 13: 10:00AM

    • Sunday, August 13: 12:00AM (Midnight Saturday night, that is)

    Finally, Showtime Too will be airing Mayor Of The Sunset Strip, a documentary about Los Angeles deejay Rodney Bingenheimer, on Monday, August 14th at 3:55AM Eastern (late Sunday night ). Tori is one of many performers and celebrities who were interviewed for this film so her face time is quite minimal.

    Inspired By The Unthinkable

    Thursday, August 03, 2006 | 14:08 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    Tori received a mention in Inspired by the Unthinkable, a sidebar to the cover story of the August 7, 2006 issue of Newsweek which samples some of the art created in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks:

    October 28, 2002

    Tori Amos releases Scarlet’s Walk, her compelling statement on America, post-9/11: “It’s easy to say ‘these evildoers,’ and yet our own country was founded in the same way,” she says. “Talk to the Cherokee nation.”

    Newsweek has posted a multimedia version of this sidebar on their website with clips of the artists they singled out. Tori’s is a still shot of her performing live while “I Can’t See New York” plays.

    Thanks to kaycee and Rachel for letting us know about this!
