Like I Said: Songs 1990-91 contains reworked and re-recorded versions of 15 songs from Ani DiFranco's first two albums. These new arrangements are fleshed out with a variety of folk instruments, ranging from violin to dulcimer. By and large, these arrangements are more impressive than the originals, adding depth to songs that sounded spare in their original incarnations. Certainly, these distinctions will only be of note to hardcore fans who own the original albums, but for latter-day fans curious about her earlier work, this is a good way to sample the songs, if not the actual recordings.
