  • From Wikipedia:
    In May 2008, Amos announced that, due to creative and financial disagreements with Epic Records, she had negotiated an end to her contract with the record label, and would be operating independently of major record labels on future work.[29][30] In September of the same year, Amos released a live album and DVD, Live at Montreux 1991/1992, through Eagle Rock Entertainment, of two performances she gave at the Montreux Jazz Festival very early on in her career while promoting her debut solo-album, Little Earthquakes. By December, after a chance encounter with chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, Doug Morris, Amos signed a "joint venture" deal Universal Republic Records.[31][32][33][34]

  • Wow, Truelove, that's an interesting thread you linked to!
    I was never a die-hard Tori Amos fan, but I do like a lot of her music, and being a pianist myself, I admire her skills. I saw her twice in concert back in the early 90's because my friend was really into her. She seemed like kind of a bitch to be honest.

  • making it the Amos' seventh album to do so.[36] Abnormally Attracted to Sin, admitted Amos, was a "personal album", not a conceptual one.[37] Continuing her distribution deal with Universal Republic, Amos released Midwinter Graces, her first seasonal album, in November of the same year.

    During her contract with the label, Amos recorded vocals for two songs for David Byrne's collaboration album with Fatboy Slim, entitled Here Lies Love,[39] which was released in April 2010. In July of the same year, the DVD Tori Amos- Live from the Artists Den was released exclusively through Barnes & Noble.
