Ani DiFranco – Wish I May

Here’s a little extra post about another Sonic Boom find from our trip to Toronto in June…

Ani DiFranco – Wish I May

I snapped up this 2-song promo single (for the great 1999 album To The Teeth) for a couple of bucks, because I’m a compulsive Ani buyer.

Wish I May is a funky wah-wah Ani swinger with incisive lyrics (of course!) and a reggae beat. Hello Birmingham is a musically-beautiful piano/guitar tune that starts out gentle and build a bit before gliding elegantly back to gentle. But the song is, as Wiki best put it,  “a sad, angry response to the shooting murder of abortion doctor Barnett Slepian.” From the headlines to her albums.

There was nothing special or collectible about this single – it’s just a promo for Righteous Babe, and both of these tracks appear on the album. Still, I wasn’t gonna leave it there.
