    Are we counting collaborations? She sang backup on some songs on Mark Lanegan's Bubblegum album, sang some of the Desert Sessions 9-10 songs (don't forget the Crawl Home single, with a Desert Sessions cover of Whores Hustle), and sang on a Moonshake album. She also did Green Eyes, Love Too Soon and Featherhead with Pascal Comelade. I think the Gordon Gano and John Parish tracks have been listed here already.

    My favorite is Just A Working Girl from the Moonshake album.

    Love too Soon with Pascal Comelade is beautiful.

    I spent quite some time this morning compiling a file of 57 rarities, many of which I hadn't heard before. Obviously, it was hella time-consuming, but worth it. Here are some of my favorites:

    66 Promises
    Airplane Blues
    Memphis
    Zaz Turned Blue
    Stone

    Oh, and she also sang backing on Sparklehorse's "Piano Fire." Great song to begin with, even better with PJ!

    There's also Slow-Motion-Movie-Star that was recorded and released by Mick Harvey on his record Two of Diamonds. I think it was written during the Stories era. I love Mick's version, but I would still love to hear Polly's version. At least a demo.

    edit: The song was written by PJ Harvey and recorded by Mick Harvey.

    She also sings and provides guitars on "Eyepennies" from that album.

    When these B-sides come out, I listened to them more than anything else (on Stories...). They're so good!!!!



    and




    and I have to say that this version of Water is one of my favourite live performances of all time!

    I love the b-sides that came out of Stories as well. Kick It To The Ground is probably my favorite.

    Adding a little more love to "Kick it to the ground"; one of her most gut-wrenching songs ever.

    Definitely. I always got the feeling the song would have been written/recorded around the time of Is This Desire? due to it's feel, lyrics and style. It sounds like it's not finished completely but it works that way.
