Editors’ Notes

Recorded mostly live in the studio with a small ensemble, 1,000 Kisses offers an unblemished view of Patty Griffin's breathtaking talents. There are times when questionable production choices have sabotaged the emotional directness of her material, but here she lays it out with both full gusto and intelligent economy. "Rain" starts things with one of her most affecting melodies, while "Be Careful" gently sets up an ominous warning for anyone venturing into matters of the heart. Her stark reading of Bruce Springsteen's "Stolen Car" adds a film-noir twist to the album that's further emphasized by a cool interpretation of the late-night blues torch ballad "Tomorrow Night." Throw in "Long Ride Home" as a marriage of 40 years ends in a funeral car, where Griffin offers: "Forty years of things you say you wish you'd never said/How hard would it have been to say some kinder words instead." Few singers can find such affecting words to match, and few writers find a voice that can convey it all with a breath.

Full many a flower

Full many a flower is born to blush unseen and waste its sweetness on the desert air. Full many a gem of purest ray serene, the dark unfathomed caves of oceans bear. -Thomas Grey

How is this woman not the most popular singer/songwriter in the world? If you can listen to Making Pies without choking up, you are made of stone. Finding this record is like finding a Picasso in your attic.

MAKING PIES is a fantastic song!

Love the whole album, but especially Making Pies. I can listen to it over and over and over. Great structure and story.

Patty Griffin is awesomesauce personified.

This whole album is freakishly beautiful. Just buy it already for goodness' sake.
