Deluxe Edition Featuring Remastered Audio Plus Special B-Sides, Live Tracks And Other Rarities!

One of the most successful and influential artists of her generation, Tori Amos is as much a force to be reckoned with today as when she released her first solo album 'Little Earthquakes' over 2 decades ago. Eschewing the trends of the time, the prodigious chanteuse touched millions deeply with her arresting melodies, riveting stage presence and personal & honest lyrics. Amos announces 2CD deluxe editions of her debut and sophomore solo albums, 'Little Earthquakes' and 'Under The Pink,' each newly re-mastered and paired with an entire disc of rare B-sides and bonus tracks.

In the original assembly of 'Little Earthquakes,' difficult choices had to be made to ensure the album's balance and flow. Fortunately, songs that didn't make the record itself were able to see the light of day as a copious stream of single b-sides for both 'Little Earthquakes' and 'Under The Pink.' Often these tracks were intertwined with album cuts, for example "Pretty Good Year" becomes an extension of "Ode To The Banana King (Part One)," which itself was b-side to "Silent All These Years." They also showcased Amos' innate ability to reinvent popular songs, perhaps the most notable being Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," a masterpiece study in understatement.

Originally released in 1992 and 1994 respectively, the songs of 'Little Earthquakes' and 'Under The Pink' continue to live and thrive to this day. As Amos tells it, "'Little Earthquakes' was an acknowledgement of things that I hadn't looked at in 15 years, in some cases... After you acknowledge something, you tell everybody, and other people say, 'I know what that's like, too.' There's this energy charge you get, and liberation from doing that." She continues to find that the audience response to "Silent All These Years," remains deep and immediate nearly a quarter century later, counting it as her most requested song and one that walks with her every day. It will continue to do so as long as she is playing music.

Amos has sold over 12 million albums, has played over a thousand shows and has had multiple Grammy nominations. A pioneer across multiple platforms, she was the first major label artist to offer a single for download, has had her songs turned into graphic novels, a successful musical, and has produced pioneering videos throughout her career. She is renowned for her passionate and broad fan-base, her critically and commercially successful tours, and her ever evolving live show.
