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.
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.

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
How do we package your items?
We use specific packaging made for the shipping of our fragile items and we take great care in packaging each item, as safely as possible. We ensure all items have ‘FRAGILE’ markings and we take the time to best select the appropriate box or satchel.
Our vinyl mailers are specifically designed to protect your item and have several layers of carboard to protect the product as well as 'crush zones' to stop bent corners etc.
