lifeblood: songs: background: chiapas bound

amy ray quote from 1999-12-17: (transcription), yahoo chat:

question: i heard that amy is putting out a solo album soon. what kinds of songs will be on it? will chiapas bound ever appear on an album?

"hmm! i am going to put a solo record out. i'm starting to work on it in january. i'm not sure what the content is going to be. i am starting out with some songs that are sort of melodic punk. and i have a lot to choose from, so i might put chiapas bound on there, but it might end up on an indigo girls album."

emily saliers quote from 2000-04-25: (transcript from the chat with emily saliers), yahoo chat:

many people were surprised that the song "chiapas bound" did not make it onto "shaming of the sun." why was this song not included?

"i'm not sure exactly. what happens when we make a record is we get a group of songs together, usually half amy's and half mine, and we decide which songs work together better. what it probably came down to in the end, though i don't remember exactly, is which songs amy and i decided were best for that album. but, you never know when songs crop up again. our next album is all acoustic and we may resurrect some of those new/old songs for that album.

amy ray quote from 2001-03: (transcription), borders website chat :

do you ever think "chiapas bound" will make it onto one of your albums?

"i am thinking about recording it for the next indigo record with emily. our next record is going to be more acoustic, so i think it will fit in well, and if not on that record, then on the next."

amy ray quote from 2001: (excerpts from an interview with amy ray), unpublished:

i asked her if some of the stuff floating around on napster will ever make its way onto a record, specifically chiapas bound, nueva senoritias, moment of forgiveness, point of hope and emily's winthrop.

"yeah some of those things might end up on an indigo girls record. i hope people will still like it if we put it on an album. sometimes people get stuff on napster and it's cool and fun because they got it on napster. and i wonder how they'd react if it then shows up on a record. the next record for us is going to be more of an acoustic folk record so-"

i interruppted and said "you guys have said that the past three times ive interviewed you over the past four years. is this for real"

"yeah. this is really for real this time. it's going to be acoustic. this is for real."
