Album of the Day
Boys For Pele (Deluxe)
“This is the record where I fought for my life,” notes Tori Amos of BOYS FOR PELE; her debut as a producer was made as she was reeling from a painful break-up. The singer-songwriter delivered an ambitious and uncompromising batch of songs about mythology (Pele was a Hawaiian volcano goddess), suppression and self-discovery – as well as one of her biggest hits, reaching #2 on the album charts in both the U.S. and the U.K. Recorded in Ireland and Louisiana, the set features fan favorites “Caught A Lite Sneeze” and “Hey Jupiter” as well as “Professional Widow,” which topped he U.K. Singles and U.S. Dance charts in an Armand Van Helden remix. Rhino's new 20th-anniversary Deluxe Edition of this pivotal album includes a newly remastered version of the original BOYS FOR PELE, along with a selection of B-sides, rare recordings and four previously unreleased tracks.
