Verdi Cries


I was listening to Master Tapes on Radio 4 where John Wilson was talking to Natalie Merchant about Tigerlily,  her first solo album after leaving 10 000 Maniacs. It is an album that I have to admit that I haven’t played much over the past decade or so and it was the last of her output that I bought as I wasn’t really that taken with it I much preferred the stuff she produced with 10 000 Maniacs.

So last night I was mostly listening to In My Tribe, my favourite of their albums and I was instantly transported back to Aberdeen and the first half of 1988 when this record was never far from the red Panasonic ghetto blaster with the turntable on top.  I thought that I would post the last track from the album, the absolutely beautiful Verdi Cries which also turned up on the b-side of the single What’s The Matter Here?
