Tori Amos has opened her back catalog to release her first ever compilation entitled Tales of a Librarian. Amos describes the 2-disc CD/DVD compilation as her musical autobiography. The album features 20 songs that document a career spanning more than a decade. On the disc, the singer-songwriter revisits and reconditions the original material and offers a new perspective on some of her most beloved songs such as "Silent All These Years," "Winter," and "Me and a Gun." In addition, Tales of a Librarian includes four new songs (Angels, Snow Cherries From France, Mary, and Sweet Dreams) and a single dance remix of "Professional Widow." A bonus DVD features five songs recorded live during sound check for the final show of Tori's summer 2003 North American tour.
