Product Description

Product Description

Acoustic versions of the hit Irish sibling pop quartet's best, plus covers of R.E.M.'s 'Everybody Hurts', Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing' and Jimmy McCarty's 'No Frontiers', all recorded for MTV Unplugged & to be broadcast at the end of November, 1999. Produced by Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, David Bowie) and with string arrangements by Fiachra Trench (Van Morrison). 14 tracks total, also including versions of 'What Can I Do', 'So Young' and 'Forgiven, Not Forgotten'. 1999 release.


Recorded at Ardmore Studios outside Dublin in early October, the Corrs sound comfortably at home on this orchestrally-enhanced live acoustic gig. With only two studio albums to their credit, it may seem a bit early to go for an Unplugged re-run but the inclusion of two new Corrs-penned songs and a trio of previously unheard covers as well as the live greatest hits means there's something fresh to enjoy. An unplugged session also establishes clearly that The Corrs, in danger of being perceived as pop puppets, are a real band who play and sing beautifully and can deliver the goods live. Encouragingly, the two new songs, "Radio" and "At Your Side", are well up to the usual Corrs standard, while much of the already familiar material benefits from tasty orchestral arrangements--"What Can I Do" in particular works better than the dance re-mix hit version. --Johnny Black

This was a very special concert, and I am so glad to have the CD. But the DVD was released on region 2, which is not playable in North America! It seems like The Corrs missed out on a lot of customers, by not releasing it on region 1 as well !!.....It would be wonderful to watch these beautiful ladies perform these great songs; as well as listen to them!! We are missing half the fun; what a shame!!

I am a Corrs' fan for a while now... And believe me - I'm not a pop person. Not at all.. But the Corrs has something different in them. I can't call them a "pop" band... Because they aren't. They make thier music out of their soul, and in this Uplugged album you can see it in the best way. The songs here are amazing. So is the music. In this album they show the whole world that they can make music... and a beautiful one, too. Some songs are already known, but there are some covers and some new songs that we will soon find on "In Blue" (which is much more disappointing). "At Your Side" is catchy and fun with lines like "I'll be at your side, there's no need to worry, together we'll survive through the haste and hurry...", Radio is more rocky, No Frontiers has great lyrics ("if life is a river, and your heart is a soul, and just like the water, baby, born to float..."), Old Town id upbeat and makes you wanna jump off your feet, and Everybody Hurts is just perfect. I'm also an REM fan, and I still can't decide which version I like more. Andrea sings it so powerfuly and so Passionately... It just makes you wanna cry. The instrumental tracks are also great. Toss The Feathers is so Irish and so makes you wanna dance, or at least watch "Lord of the Dance" and Erin Shore is just relaxing.. This album is my favourite so far, and I don't think it's gonna change for a long while. This is the album that I put in my CD Player every night when I go to sleep, and the album that I play whenever I feel sad or angry. It's just relaxing.. and it makes you feel fine. You listen to it and you just drown into Andrea's voice and into the wonderful music.. So buy it, and I promise you you won't regret it. It's just pure magic!

As a fan of the band for some time, I snapped this CD up ASAP. But I must admit, each time I pop it into the changer, I enjoy it more. Now that 'In Blue' is making its mark on U.S. audiences, 'Unplugged' seems to sound even better. You can never realy appreciate the talent of an artist or band, until you hear them in front of a live audience, without the benefits of the mixing and vocal manipulations the so many artists rely on these days, to make their voices sound better than they actually are.The Corrs do an amazing job of replicating their recorded sound in front concertgoers and even sound great doing -what at the time- were new, unrecorded(and unfamiliar) songs. The voices of these Irish siblings blend so beautifully, it will take your breath away.
I think the highlights of this CD are the covers of REM's 'Everybody Hurts', Jimi Hendrix's classic 'Little Wing' and an amazing ballad called 'No Frontiers'. This disc is music that you can play at work, at home , in the car, on your portable... wherever! Get this one. You won't be sorry The harmonies alone are worth the price.

Are you sure this was taken live? The album production is so polished that the only indication of a live performance is the applause between songs. While it's true that this performance is "unplugged," there's an entire orchestra backing up the four-piece band. The arrangements, though, are excellent.
But what about the Corrs themselves? The group's playing ability is definitely top-notch; they may not be virtuosos, but their chemistry as an ensemble is unmatched. I guess it helps to be siblings. I confess, I did not know any of this band's songs before getting the CD -- it was a gift to me from one of my cousins overseas. Turns out that good musical taste runs in the family. What's not to like about the crystalline vocal harmonies and gently rolling instrumental parts? Every track's a good one, even if some songs sound kinda same-ish and nondescript.
The 2-3-4 combo of "What Can I Do," "Radio" and "Toss the Feathers" (the last one a folk instrumental) is by far the best part of the album, but listening to the end of the CD has its reward -- the band's cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" is a beautiful interpretation that would make Michael Stipe proud.

Ok I have been a fan of the corrs now for about 6 months. I have always loved Irish celtic music, but at the same time it can be very dramatic(dont get me wrong I am Irish :) ). Now what the corrs do , is they put the same upbeat Irish sound into today's contemproary pop music. So ok, I first bought talk on corners and then forgiven, then I found the original talk on corners.... ok so I had to have everything by them :)... And then I found this work of wonderful, great , beutiful, music..! ! ! :). The first time that I played the cd I was like oh god I have to go on mtvs fanatic for them. You should have seen it I played that thing over and over all day long and I still love it like the first time that I heard it. So my point is if you are looking at the reviews & you are wondering if its worth the money, YES IT IS! buy it ASAP! you will be playing the cd all day and all night and into the morning. I LOVE THE CORRS I LOVE THE CORRS I LOVE THE CORRS! and you will love them too even better when you buy this cd..... Listen to track #9 no frontiers its sung by sharon and caroline, and is truly beautiful... ok I need to shut up now... BUT THIS CD .... THE CORRS UNPLUGGED IS THE BEST!
