Aside from being a mini-mogul (the debut from Pet, the first band signed
to her Atlantic-distributed Igloo imprint is forthcoming) and the subject of a
rabid fan base that hangs on her every breathy word, Tori Amos is also a
born-again workaholic and rare grooves guru. The piano bench-humping crooner
has not one but two EP's in the offing, this after she's already released two
similar singles-plus-rare tracks efforts for a pair of songs off Boys For
Pele "Caught a Lite Sneeze" and "Talula." The first is a just-released
remix EP that features six different mixes of the song "Professional Widow,"
the second (August 21), entitled Hey Jupiter , is set to feature a new
"Dakota" version of the title song and four live tracks, including
"Professional Widow," "Sugar," "Honey," and Amos' signature rendition of
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow." As all Toriphiles are aware, Amos is not new to
the EP game, as evidenced by a 1992 EP for "Winter" which found her covering
the Stones ("Angie"), Led Zeppelin ("Thank You") and giving her, um,
"interpretation" of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
