Album Notes
This album was recorded over the course of three days in October '99.

"Ladies' Love Oracle is me in the raw, me in the dark, me in the basement.

Sometimes a sketch says more than a mural." - Grant-Lee Phillips

Ladies' Love Oracle may be said to be comparable to other works by Grant Lee Buffalo (particularly the more acoustic outings) and comparable, in the sparseness and spontaneity of its production, to certain early John Lennon solo recordings as well as Robyn Hitchcock's acoustic based LP, "I Often Dream Of Trains."



to write a review


Lennon-esqe. Beautiful. swaying. Floatyarms. Much Love.
I was dissappointed in the cardboard sleeve packaging and i am going to get a real cd case for it because the cd keeps sliding out onto the floor. But the music is beautiful...Lennon-esqe in spots...I found myself swaying...feeling very peaceful. Tough to sell to the zombies in this Mtv day, but anyone with a soul will feel it and love it.

Ben Dahlman

his best work
i'm not really much of a grant lee buffalo fan, but this disc is really good.


Great album
Beautiful voice,great pop album.
(Recorded in only 3 days...)

Hrmm....what's all the fuzz about?
I'll give a star for the voice, one for the production and one for the songs - which is not at all his best work to come.
The songs are small pieces of stipped down mellow folksongs, which I love, but I need them to be more melodic and more caracteristic. They don't stick out and you tend to hear the cd like background music without focusing on the individual song.
Sorry guys...I know you love it - I do too, in my on way, but can't wait for future GLP albums...


Intimate and enchanting. A very special album.
A welcome return to form from Grant. It seems that in this day and age of over produced commercial music, lo-fi recordings like this and others are needed more than ever. Also, it puts the songs in focus rather than the image of the artist. Thank you for some great music and please stay indie.

Reminds me of Lenin...

Fuckin' order it already, and if you don't....he is like that musician that the cool kid down the street is obsessed with and nobody knows about.....and now you have a chance....BUY IT!! IT RULES!!!...if you want a taste go to www.grantleephillips.com and then click on Links and then on the WKRZ radio link and then click on grant lee phillips. WOW!


Soothing, mellow folk goodness
While the production is low key (this is the intention of the recording), most of the songs come through brilliantly. The only exception is "Flamin' Shoe," which could be one of Grant's CLASSICS given the vocals were higher in the mix and the performance had as much energy as it has been done live. Nevertheless, this song is still quite good. Overall, it's a perfect record to just sit back and enjoy. Biggest complaint: 31 minutes in length, 9 songs for a list price of $17.94 and $13.99 in the only place selling it online? Harsh.

guitar, piano, grant vocals and silent,dark backdrop
Classic Grant! The album has the feel that GLB b-sides have, without the full band sound. It's much more personal than anything I've heard from GLB, and the quiet background of the basement gives it the feeling of a truth or dare game that didn't turn into sex, but ended at 8am with secrets being told without fear of judgement.
