JD, you've hit my hot button. I love female vocals and am intrigued by hidden songs. I will try to get the import CD, but do you know if the album is available on LP?

I first became acquainted with Kasey when I saw her on Austin City Limits with Steve Earle (2001 show). At that time, my impression was that she was an "Australian Iris Dement", one of my favorite country/folk/roots singers -- I'm really not sure how to classify Iris. At any rate, if you love Kasey, try Iris, especially her "Infamous Angel" album. And, can you give me your source for Kasey's import CD?
Twl, I'm not sure about vinyl.
Fishinfool, I buy a lot of my music from cdconnection.com they have a huge selection to chose from, often times multiple import options and limited edition imports. The best thing about it is you can save your shopping basket. When ever I get suggested music, I store it at cd connection until I have the money. I have about 50 disks in my list right now. The other good thing is they have "golden ear" recommendations. The bad thing is you have to know who your looking for, it's not set up for casual browsing.
I saw her for her last show of the abbreviated tour last year at the Keswick Theater in Philadelphia. What a trooper! Despite her obvious pain/discomfort she carried on for a full show, though had to beg off on the encores as I remember. Excellent backing band as well, even her Mom came down from the CD sales stand to join in on bass for a couple of older family band tunes!
You should seek out Kasey's DVD - "Behind the Barricades" which was released about 12 moths ago in Australia.Shows her touring, recording parts of "Barricades and Brickwalls",being interviewed,performing live and hanging out with her band - an interesting and enjoyable disc which will give you some idea of who she is.Quality is OK.
I saw her this year in an outdoor amphitheater at the Minnesota Zoo. She gave an awesome show, and what I hadn't known is her father plays many different guitars for her. her brother is her manager and her mom is her merchandise manager. Her mom did not tour this year because she was home taking care of Kasey's baby!
The true discovery of the concert was her back up band. They used Kasey's lead guitarist and had an excellent bluegrass/rock band lead by another incredible female vocalist. The name of the band was "Greencard" and they have two disks available. I found them at www.cdconnection.com my favorite site for cd's. What I like about this site is they save your shopping basket forever, so if when I hear of music I simply add it to my basket for later purchase. They also have many import options and limited edition presses.
Kasey is wonderful, check out Greencard too, the lead female is very similar.
Good to see you folk enjoying one of "ours". I seen her here in Australia when she was touring her debut CD, and she was just starting to get the rave reviews she deserves.
Her band are excellent, and I especially enjoyed the guitar work from her dad.She is real down to earth and hasn't grown a big head with her career and I look forward to her next recording.
I have read where she has said she is influenced by Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris, another 2 artists I love.
I still rate The Captain as my fave of hers.
