Information/Write-up

In 1991, Leslie Feist formed the Calgary punk band "Placebo". After that, she played bass for Noah's Arkweld, then rhythm guitar for the band By Divine Right. In 1999, Feist provided vocals for Peaches' (Merrill Nisker's) album "The Teaches of Peaches". Later that year, Leslie Feist released her first and astoundingly rare CD. The album is a phenomenal listen and represents some of her best work to date. Sold only at concerts, this album will never be re-issued. Thus, it's value has skyrocketed of late, now fetching as much as $400.00 and is one of the most valuable CD's ever recorded by a Canadian.
