An evolving compilation.  Selections from earlier Amy Annelle/The Places albums, plus previously unreleased home recordings and rare covers, 1999-2009.  CDR with handmade packaging.  

"Under her own name and as the Places, the powerfully affecting songwriter Amy Annelle has quietly put together a body of work that rates with anything you (or anybody) would call 'Americana'. Ghosts and the living mingle in her songs, as well as a multitude of choice covers, and few artists get closer to the ineffable essence of this land of ours in all its great and awful beauty" Mike Wolf, TimeOut NY

Billboard Magazine Critic's Choice/Top Ten Albums of 2006

"A starkly beautiful collection of dark avant-folk wanderings...eerily quiet and breathtaking"--Peter Linblad, Goldmine Magazine


"Conventionally this record might be folk, psychadelic, avant-pop--more or less undefinable--but most of all it's got a grip on the sprawling, strange, optimistic, terrifying feel of open-road America."~~David Snyder, IndieFolkForever

TRACK LISTING: Miners Lie! | Blessed Speed | The Lion's Share | My Weary Eye | Mercy Me | Gold to Green | The Damn Insane Asylum | The Natural Arc | I'm A-Gone Down to the Green Fields | Such As the Earth (Neveroff's Fate) | Worse & Wise

 original audio, reproduced cover art & booklet in resealable mylar sleeve.

(2005) found album art by Amy Annelle.

...not the usual premeditated studio covers album: it's more of an accidental self-portrait, drawn from a wealth of live recordings and home 4-track sessions. The album digs deep into the hallowed underground of British and American folk and psychedelic rock--with a few wild cards mixed in. "...The Places' new ragtag covers album, featuring tortured and time-stopping versions of songs by Michael Hurley, Bob Dylan, Bert Jansch, Elliott Smith, and more" (Dave Heaton, Erasing Clouds)

Call It Sleep (THE PLACES) - Handmade CDR reissue w/ booklet in resealable mylar sleeve
