(Amazon.com) For his fifth album, 'Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song', Lee took a different path for the recording; for the first time, he brought his touring band into the studio with him. Though Amos says that his primary strategy has always been to keep things as simple as possible, he knew that there was one thing he required for Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song, which was to record with the musicians he has been taking on the road:
"I wanted to play these songs with people that I trust musically, and stay open to where it took us...The touring band works really hard, they're really musical, they're a good hang, so it was cool to hole up for a few weeks and experience it together. In the singer-songwriter world, it can be sort of a solitary creative process, so it's good to collaborate with people and bring songs to life together."
