Product Description

These two complete concerts from Montreux in 1991 and 1992 catch Tori Amos right at the start of her solo career, one shortly before the release of her Little Earthquakes album and the second a few months after. There is a clear progression from one year to the next as Tori grows in confidence and skill as a live performer, buoyed by the critical and commercial success of the album. The tracklisting focuses on Little Earthquakes and features all the hits from it but there are also rare songs from her early EPs including her distinctive takes on Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "Thank You" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

HASH(0xb3bdabd0) out of 5 stars not the full release.... read on. Sept. 30 2008
By D. W. Shelby II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For whatever reason... and this totally baffels me for such a specific release... this USA 1 disc release, is not the complete version. The UK issue of this same title includes both shows in their entirety on 2 CD's.

In the year 2008, it seems to me that there would be a very specific audience that a live recording release from shows 16-17 years ago would appeal to. If this is the case, why on earth would the record label decide to put out an abrivated version of this release in the USA, while the UK gets the full 2 shows?

NOTE : the DVD release is the same, with both full shows, on both sides of the pond.

HASH(0xb3a48054) out of 5 stars Like an old pair of jeans and a cup of hot cocoa Sept. 30 2008
By E. Rohman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the year 1997 I was introduced to Tori Amos. What can I say? 11 years later, several hundred dollars spent on rare EP's, limited editions, LP's, out of print DJ copies of promo items, concerts, etc etc, you could say that I was, and still am to an extent, a rabid Tori fan. My rigorous love for her may have faded over the course of her last three studio albums, but, you will still find me jamming out to 1992's "Little Earthquakes" every now and again, and remembering every emotion and thought I had when I first listened to it 11 years ago.

Live at Montreux brings the old, familiar Tori that we have been pining for since "Scarlet's Walk" dropped back to us. The girl who used to throw on some jeans over a bathing suit and pound away at a piano for a couple hours and tell quirky stories about her church going days, and the value of southern fried chicken. Listening to this performance (which pre-dates the official release of "LE") is very interesting. The songs are still new to Tori, and fresh. There is a quality about them that is still freshman in nature. She is still the girl who told stories between her songs about nothing in particular. The 1992 songs reveal a sharper, more polished version of Tori, but still one that hadn't been jaded by her label, and by legions of critics who would later label her as a "kook".

This CD is also pre Marcel and Mark, so the mighty Bosey sounds completely different. They didn't know how to mic it back then, so it sounds totally different. I, at first, thought there was something wrong with the sound quality of the recording. I was mistaken. There's nothing wrong with it at all, that's how it sounded then.

So, in short, for whatever the future holds for Ms. Amos (her recent split from a major label leads me to wonder what future material will be like), this blast from the past is a reminder of what was - that special moment when you first discovered Tori Amos, and curled up under a blanket, crying to yourself as she sang "China" for the first time to you.

*Edit* After purchasing the DVD, I see why the piano sound quality is so wonky on the 1991 performance. She was playing some odd, plug in 90's version of an electric/acoustic piano. It just sounded weird.

HASH(0xb3c229d8) out of 5 stars Nothing new, but very satisfying nonetheless. Oct. 11 2008
By T-Bone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of all, thank you VERY MUCH to the reviewer(s) that mentioned the disparity between the U.S. and European releases. Having this in mind, I went to the Amazon UK website and purchased this CD there. It cost more once you converted over to U.S. dollars, but you get both CDs with the complete 19 tracks. Very helpful information!!

As I read on here, the Bosendorfer sounds different than what I'm used to, but it WAS the way she sounded back then on her recordings. While I've heard most if not all of these versions at one point over my long Tori following, this compilation is very welcome indeed. I too have lost a great deal interest in Tori's new music, so I welcome this CD to my vast Tori collection. I'd say avid Tori fans will be pleased with this CD for the most part, even if this is nothing new for them. However, if you've never heard Tori live from her early years, this blast from the past will surely impress.

I'm definitely going to buy the DVD next.

HASH(0xb3bda360) out of 5 stars go to amazon mp3 downloads to get the full album Oct. 21 2008
By shyam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
hi. as you may or may not know, the usa version of the cd is missing 3 tracks that the dvd and uk cd have. to get the full concert i would recommend going to the amazon.com mp3 site and buy the full album (which includes the 3 missing tracks) as opposed to buying the hard copy cd.

the mp3 download is also cheaper than buying the cd.

HASH(0xb3a59b64) out of 5 stars Amazing Tori Nov. 2 2008
By Artem Pavlov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
That is so amazing that this woman continue to be that good and that original even in 2008. Its hard to believe that this record was made in 1991-1992, another epoch, another time, another culture, and it still sounds as fresh as it sounded back then and absolutely not outdated. Bravo, Tori, bravo!
