“The Rarities” returns listeners to the halcyon days of Mariah Carey’s high belt, when no note was too lofty and no run too elaborate. Taken together with her new memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey,” this two-disk compilation of B-sides, previously unreleased tracks, and a full concert from 1996 reveals a different pop star, one who surrounded herself with fantasies, butterflies, glitter, and perpetual Christmas in order to escape a difficult and sometimes violent childhood. In that context, her ebullient singing sounds equal parts joyful and vehement, a force of nature and of will. Carey spent the nineties churning out hits in the pop-music dream factory; as her vocal resources became a bit more modest, she shifted toward sensual, hip-hop-inflected R. & B. for a successful mid-two-thousands comeback. Still, it’s her early work—and that powerful, elastic, honeyed voice—that rings indelibly.
