TORI AMOS Live At Montreux 1991/1992 Eagle (2008)

Tori Amos

Simultaneously released on CD and DVD, these 2 complete concerts (actually, more showcases running in at an average of 45 minutes) capture the emerging talent of Tori Amos. She of orange hair and orange knickers fame.

Naturally enough, as the dates straddle the release of her 1991 debut album Little Earthquakes, it is that album that accounts for the bulk of the material, with a core of Silent All These Years, Precious Things, Crucify and Winter appearing in both sets and only Girl, Mother and Tear In Your Hand failing to make either.

But its some of the more 'unusual' material that's of significance - on the July 1991 gig a fine version of Zeppelin's Thank You from Led Zeppelin II, and on the July 1992 gig a Whole Lotta Love / Thank You medley and a version of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

The first concert is played pretty much straight (beautifully played, sung and recorded), while by 1992 Tori's quirky nature sees her experimenting with some of the material and if you can't imagine piano versions of Whole Lotta Love and Smells Like , well they're played as only Tori Amos can, and you'd be hard pressed to recognise them at times. But that's what happens when your hair happens to match your underwear. Bonkers.

Fans will not be disappointed by this merchandise.
