This is, without a doubt, the best Tori purchase I've ever made. I've been a dedicated fan ever since I heard "Little Earthquakes" in the early '90s, and it was such a pleasure to see her perform songs from this album from a time before she was well known. Her performance from 1991 is raw, uncertain, earnest and full of hope and innocence. You can tell she's way out of her comfort zone, bantering little and very nervously with the crowd. But her performance is breath-taking. Rock solid, full of intense emotion, it's truly a beautiful sight. I can't get over how vulnerable she looks on stage. But yet, even at this point in her career, she's a complete firestorm - passionate and courageous. A foreshadowing of things to come...
Fast forward to 1992, the second performance on the DVD, and she's a different woman. Confident, self-assured, bold in her delivery, and she's got a little attitude! That's our Tori! It's striking how completely different these two performances and these two version of Tori are.
My favorite song from the entire DVD is "Upside Down", performed in the 1991 set, which I had never heard before. Again, her performance is so moving, and raw. This is the Tori before tours, record labels, disappointments and life hardened her up.
If you are a Tori Amos fan, and you don't have this already, buy it. You will not regret it, I promise.
