B-Sides & Rarities Compilation, Released 2007

What discography could be complete without a collection of ancient B-sides and rarities, not to mention the occasional cover tune recorded whilst sitting in bed? On "A Bit o' This & That," our favorite manic depressive shares her bizarre and wonderful sense of whimsy (to put it gently), covering songs from Broadway musicals, BBC television shows, The Smiths, and more, while showing off a ridiculously wide vocal range in her own operatic compositions, and followed by what is perhaps the strangest offering possible, a truly original take on "The Star Spangled Banner." Most tracks hail from EA's pre "Opheliac" era, and were written and recorded while in her teens. EA herself has confessed that many of these tracks were recorded singing into a laptop in her kitchen. Now, why is that not terribly hard to believe...
