A Collection (2000 – 2012), which exclusively premiered last week at FolkAlley.com, features stand-out tracks and fan favorites from the band’s three critically-acclaimed full-length albums: Blue Horse (2001), Chinatown (2003) and Hello Love (2006). Additionally, the 16-song collection includes four previously unreleased tracks: two brand new tracks “Little Black Bear” and “Gospel Song,” and new mixes of “Scattered Leaves” and “Song For R.”
The Be Good Tanyas—Frazey Ford, Trish Klein and Samantha Parton—formed in Vancouver in 1999, and captured the hearts of fans and critics alike for their unique mixture of deep country, early American folk, old-time blues and gospel. Their gorgeous instrumentation, combined with stunning vocals and seamless harmonies create music that is warm, honest and captivating.
