Neko Case The Tigers Have Spoken on Limited Edition Colored LP + Download
November 2015 marks the, limited edition vinyl re-issues of three Neko Case records that have been long out of print. Each title has been remastered from the original analog tapes and comes complete with a full album download card. Furnace Room Lullaby (2000), Blacklisted (2002), and The Tigers Have Spoken (2004) are highly sought after fan favorites that have been missing on wax for over 6 years. These stand-alone offerings come on the heels of her stunning vinyl box set, Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule and are available just in time for the holidays.
Recorded live over seven nights and at three different venues in Chicago and Toronto in 2004, The Tigers Have Spoken finds Neko in incredible voice backed by a full band featuring The Sadies and steel guitar wizard Jon Rauhouse along with special guests Kelly Hogan, Carolyn Mark, Jim & Jennie and the Pinetops, Paul Morstad, and Brian Connelly.
While The Tigers Have Spoken is a live album, it's not your typical career retrospective - only two of the eleven songs are from Neko's back catalog. In addition to two new original compositions, the songstress wraps her powerful pipes around a surprising collection of covers written by artists like Buffy Saint Marie, Loretta Lynn, the Shangri-La's and Freakwater's Catherine Irwin. The set closes with impassioned versions of the standards, "Wayfaring Stranger" and "This Little Light," which Neko forever makes her own.
