4.0 out of 5 stars A great performance May 17, 2005
Format:DVD
The Good

If you're not familiar with the Storytellers program, it where VH1 gets well-known recording artists into an intimate setting with some of their biggest fans for a live performance. In between the songs the artists give a little insight to how the song came to be and field questions from the crowd. Alanis Morissette however, is uncomfortable with this format, but she's the first to tell you about it. She thinks she speaks a lot through her music. Alanis does give a little info on seven of her best known tracks. If I told you what she said there would be no reason for you to buy it. The performance takes place at the peak of Alanis' career, so all of her hits are included; "Hand in My Pocket", "You Learn", "Thank U", "Unsent", You Oughta Know", That I Would Be Good, and "Still".

The music arraignments are quite different and are mostly acoustic; this does not take away any of the integrity of the songs. The keyboardist tone really enhances the performances. So much so that I've found a new appreciation for "Thank U". It wasn't really a favorite of mine (maybe the video was). Alanis admits that she felt she had to get permission from the men she sings about on "Unsent" (I know I said I wouldn't tell, but what the heck). Another pleasant surprise was a plugged in version of "You Oughta Know". It seems everywhere Alanis goes, she performs that one acoustically.

The DVD is a little slim on extras, but you do get two performances that were never aired, "Uninvited" (my favorite Alanis song, and even more so with this performance) and "Head Over Feet" (the country version apparently). I don't think they were never aired for content, most likely time restrictions.

5.0 out of 5 stars a Great Treasure June 28, 2005
Format:DVD
This is the first VH1 Storytellers DVD that I have purchased and I have to admit that I am with truth greatly pleased. The setting, the directing, the music and Alanis herself all give off this vibe that relaxes you and alleviates you of your stress. Alanis' beautiful and captivating voice makes me smile as well as cry. I found it to be a great treasure to watch her engage in conversations with the audience. It's really interesting to hear what she has to say, even though her songs speak for herself. Alanis with truth knows how to pull in an audience and she knows how to offer a great performance. I cannot wait to see her live someday in my life.

Set List:

Hand In My Pocket

You Learn

Thank U

Unsent

You Oughta Know

That I Would Be Good

Still

Uninvited

Head Over Feet

5.0 out of 5 stars A great storyteller; A fantastic performer October 24, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is a must for Morissette fans, and lovers of rock music in general will also appreciate Morissette's brand of confessional writing mixed with the hard rock sounds and gentle melodies her band offers throughout the show. The whole backdrop and aura of this show is very intimate, also psychedelic as Morissette was involved in projecting an image of peace and spiritual harmony during this point of her career. The song list is a rich blend of radio hits off Jagged Little Pill with deep cuts from Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. Some highlights include Alanis playing a flute solo in "That I Would Be Good," the greatest and most driving performance of "You Oughta Know" I've scene to date, and concluding with a brilliant performance of "Still"(Dogma)where Alanis reveals in storytelling format "This is my take on what God is." And if that isn't enough, the bonus features include performances of her classic "Head Over Feet," and then "Uninvited," which will leave viewers blown away and proves Morissette is one singer who knows how to rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Hair Alanis Rocks & Keeps It Real April 27, 2005
Format:DVD
This is long hair Alanis. Alanis is very raw and make-up is minimal. She sits alot and seems very at peace with the audience. She appears quite comfortable and when she answers questions she provides good eye contact with the audience. One audience member asked her if she writes lyrics first, or music first. Alanis explained that most of the time she does it all in one shot. Every once in a while she will write lyrics or a poem, but she prefers for the music and lyrics to all come together. Back to long hair Alanis, this segment of Storytellers was taped in July of 1999 and includes songs from her smash album Jagged Little Pill as well as songs from her album So Called Infatuation Junkie.

The song "Uninvited," which was a part of the Godzilla soundtrack (remember that movie??), is one of the bonus tracks on the set. The other bonus performance is the song "Head Over Feet."

It is really great to see these songs performed acoustic and up close and personal. Alanis Morrisette is a great singer and song writer and this is a great release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, But Great November 17, 2005
By V-Mac
Format:DVD
The DVD only includes her performance of 9 songs; and that thanks to two songs that they added as extras (see set list below). The first song either already started by the time the DVD show begins, or they she simply did a short version of it.

Besides that, her performance is top quality. The sound and image quality of the video is great. The DVD also allows you to play the show omitting the storytelling bits.

Set List:

Hand In My Pocket

You Learn

Thank U

Unsent

You Oughta Know

That I Would Be Good

Still

Extras:

Uninvited

Head Over Feet

I give it 4 stars only because I think it was short. It is so good that you wish it was longer.
