“Joan Osborne Wakes the Dead”.

From RollingStone.com:

“People like that social aspect of listening to the band,” Osborne

different ways and collecting tapes, part of an underground network of fans.”

To prepare her for four-hour sets [sic] and the improvisational jam sessions, the
band sent her a box of CDs and lyrics. But Osborne embraces the challenge:
“I always thought that one of the great things about seeing a live performer
was that you could be spontaneous and anything could happen at any moment.”
