Hurricane Elizabeth

Dark Light

Hurricane Elizabeth is a comprehensive fan-made compilation curated by Robbie McCown and is comprised of rarities and b-sides throughout Liz Phair’s 30-year career.

Originally created in 2018, it was intended to simply be a personal playlist but was eventually shared with fans in the Support System fan group on Facebook in 2020 to allow newer fans to listen and download songs that are in many cases impossible to find anywhere else.

Consisting of 66 total tracks, Hurricane Elizabeth is divided into three “discs” of 22 tracks each, in a loose chronological order, so that if desired, each could be transferred to a CD to create a 3-disc set. From start to finish, the entire set is three hours and thirty-six minutes long.

The tracklisting on the third disc has been revised a couple of times to accommodate new additions and make minor adjustments to the running order. The artwork depicted on this page is the most current (and likely final) iteration of the compilation.
