Sheryl on Charlie Rose (12/1/97) : SC discussed working on Tomorrow Never Dies, how exciting it was for her since she is such a big fan of James Bond movies. She said that working with an orchestra was a treat because it allowed her to work in a different genre. The Lilith Fair was discussed & how at first she was skeptical because of reaction she had received about joining an all female tour. Saying how some people in the record business felt it might not be a huge money maker.

Sheryl also talked about the success of the tour, explaining it was in part due to most of the artists on the bill having Top Ten singles at the time. Recording Sheryl Crow was relaxing for SC because she could just record in the studio & not really worry about what the finished product would be. Sheryl mentioned wanting to start her own record label & to be a mother. The interview was a very interesting look at a great artist, I believe will be around for a long time.

Sheryl on Sessions @ West 54th (11/29/97) - SC performed in the last half hour of the program. Among many highlights for me was Ms. Crow's powerful track I Shall Believe & her cover of a Leonard Cohen song played in the memory of the late Jeff Buckly. An emotional & heartfelt performance by Sheryl. The show's theme is composed by Mitchell Froom, production assist on the SC tracks Oh Marie & Hard To Make A Stand.

Quotes - in Sheryl's words from Q Magazine : "I've been asked to write the main theme to the new Bond movie, Tomorrow Never Dies, which is a great honour. I'm a big Bond fan and I find all those hugely dramatic, highly suspenseful pieces fascinating. I'd like to get back to the original feel of those '60s themes and do something that is part lounge music and part what I do." The video is now being played on MTV & VH1. A 30 second wav of the song is @ the bottom of this site. Wav provided by United International Pictures & A&M Records. The preview for Tomorrow is now being advertised on TV & in moviehouses.

SNP's Brand New says Cheryl "Salt" James Image track w/ Sheryl may not have been on previous albums 'Brand New is more an expression who we are instead of someone dictating the music' The group formerly was with longtime producer Hurby Azor but due to arguments over royalties & artistic direction, they went to Red Ant Records. The next SNP's CD says Sandra "Pepa" Denton 'I would like to see the next album be more inspirational' Information & quotes from USA Today.

Imagine off of the new album is a very different track with a hip-hop beat & Sheryl's strong vocals mixed in with R&B. The mix on the track was very well done by Joseph Powell layering SC's voice w/ an artist by the name of K.E.I. Sheryl sings the line "I Can't Breathe" a couple of times which you may remember was the original title for the song some months back.

Special SC CD: This review was written by Amanda from NYC- "I expected Sheryl's Blue Christmas track to be more rock & roll based but it was a change of pace for her, slow & soft. She sings in a higher pitch on the song & adds harmonica to it as well. The track was recorded in Tokyo, Japan! Other standout tracks on the cd include a live track by Dave Matthews & a new song called Ave Maria by ex-front man Chris Cornell of Soundgarden."

MTV Unplugged Book w/ Sheryl: Ms. Crow is in MTV's Unplugged Book. The book contains 3 huge pictures of Sheryl's show. Also it has a collection of pictures & quotes from various shows.' Unplugged' is shaped to look like a huge guitar neck, selling for a very expensive $60 American & $65 Canadian.

MTV News Quotes: SC said the following comments on her excitement about the SNP CD: "We would wind up on the same TV shows a lot, & wound up being very close friends. They would do dance routines to 'All I Wanna Do' & we were always partying to their music, & then they called me & asked me to play on their record. I am so anxious for it to come out, because the stuff I heard them doing is so amazing, & they produced it themselves. It's kind of a return to old R&B with a really fresh twist to it." My thanks to MTV News!

SC Quotes: Sheryl in a 1997 interview said "I'm sorta at a point now where I'm looking at my life & wondering why I've never been married. I'm sort of looking at my life & experiencing some regent, wondering if I'd gone down this road, instead of that road, what my life would have been like" My thanks to the great people @ Postnet, St. Louis Post-Dispatch for these quotes.

Interesting Facts: Sheryl has traveled more then 11,000 miles & performed in more then 40 cities! She said that too much time on the road causes her "to lose touch with reality."

The Jones Beach review from NYC-opening night Aug. 15th, 1997 written by Amanda:
I loved Sheryl so much, the atmosphere I had to adjust to because I like seeing her in a smaller venue rather then a larger amphitheater. It was a humid night and it was perfect being right by the ocean. Michael Penn (the first opening act) was really great . He played with a 4 piece band for a 40 minute set. Wilco was really good & they played a 50 minute set.

Then Sheryl came on in a blue metallic vest with a tight white tank top. Also she wore tight metallic pants and looked beautiful. Her hair was down and frizzy. During "Can't Cry Anymore", almost everyone stood up & danced. I was in total bliss, I also noticed that the stage was right on the water & that you had to take a boat to get backstage. It was something really different for me to see.

When Sheryl did the "Na Na Song" the power went out! It was like music & time just stopped. Sheryl said after power was restored, "Wow...was that God!" It's a sign man, it's some kind of sign." The show started @ 7:30 p.m. and ended around 11:30p.m.

Sheryl got rid of her pink tour bus now she has a really big bus with blue streaks on the side! It also had dark windows and white lines. The night was beautiful, the high point of my life! I hope you all can have a chance to see Sheryl & her band. Sincerely, Amanda.

The Houston Show written by Deb from Sept. 13th, 1997: Wilco was great they are really rockin' these days. At the end of their set Sheryl, dressed in faded overalls, and her band came out & started dancing. Really spontaneous & funny.

Sheryl came out dressed in a light blue sorta denim colored suit. I think it was linen, with the jacket lined in red. She immediately took off the jacket after the first song. It was really hot and humid, they had to use towels to keep the instruments & themselves dry.

Sheryl wore a velvet black/purple tank top underneath. I had second row orchestra seats. Great view!! During "No One Said It Would Be Easy" Sheryl said 'I hardly ever play this song live, but I feel like it tonight so here ya go' It was very moving & everyone became really quiet. They were drawn into the emotion of Sheryl's somewhat pensive delivery. "Maybe Angels" SC said 'How many of ya'll believe in angels?' The crowd cheered. 'Cool, me too. How many of ya'll believe Jim Morrison's still alive?' Some people cheered. She laughed "Well, I'm not so sure I believe in that one"

"Winding Road"-everyone was standing & singing it was really cool! I was playing air guitar at this point. Only then Todd went over to Sheryl & whispered something to her & pointed to me! Then I realized what I had been doing, I was really embarrassed. Sheryl smiled, laughed & screamed to him 'yeah but she's got the chords down' It was funny though.

Sheryl left the stage , returned w/ Wilco & did two encores. Sheryl & Todd mentioned to the two folks in front of me to scoot out of my way. Then the coolest thing happened, they both tossed me a pick. Todd tossed his first & some guy grabbed it cause I missed it. Sheryl saw this & told a staff person to hand it to me. She smiled & give me the thumbs up sign.

My special thanks to Deb!

Sheryl Bio & Single News: Sheryl Crow was born on Feb 11th in Kennett, Missouri. She was very popular in her marching band in high school. At age 5 she was taught how to play classical piano. Sheryl's heart though would be in rock & roll bands like the Rolling Stones & Led Zeppelin."In High School, I listened to bands like The Band, Journey, Boston, Foreigner & Kanasas. My music is rock & roll for sure but it is also very country music based." Those bands would show up as an influence on her 16 million selling-grammy winning CD "Tuesday Night Music Club" and her second Best Pop Record Female Grammy for "Sheryl Crow" with has already sold over 1 million copies worldwide. At 20, Sheryl played in the St. Louis Band Cashmere. I have been blessed to Sheryl twice in less then 3 years time & I received her "set list" original copy when she played here in Buffalo NY in 94. She has been working on numerous side projects before "Sheryl Crow" including working with Eric Clapton on of all things a techno-record, T.D.F.-Retail Therapy.
