EDITORS’ NOTES

Sheryl Crow’s 1993 debut album sparked five GRAMMY nominations and three awards, including Best New Artist. After shelving her previous recordings for being too slick (not included here), Crow, with producer Bill Bottrell, put together this intimate, small-room rock collection that included everything from the perfect country-pop of “All I Wanna Do” and the desperate call of “Leaving Las Vegas” to the acoustic ballad “Strong Enough.” This Deluxe Edition includes four previously unreleased 1995 tunes that were recorded for Crow’s follow-up, three U.K. b-sides, her cover of Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer Mak’er,” “On the Outside,” a dark, dry ballad that appeared on The X-Files soundtrack, a 2009 remix by Bottrell of “I Shall Believe” and (live for Virgin Radio) “All I Wanna Do.” Eric Carmen’s “All By Myself” is given extra muscle from its soft-rock roots. The additional material truly expands the original album. “Coffee Shop” settles into a bucolic folk-country vibe. “Killer Life” has the electricity of the city coursing through its veins.
