From a haunting "The Wild Sea", to an improvised "Walking on The Moon", this video is a vibrant example of Sting's vocal, lyrical, and musical talent. The texture of the video is soft and filtered, which complements the acoustic nature of the unplugged venue. This is an absolute must for Sting fans - as close is you will ever get to having a feel for what it must be like to have Sting play in your living room. Thanks Gordon for sharing your talent!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic Brilliance August 10, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video is the MTV Unplugged performance which was recorded in New York on 5 March 1991. The difference between the version screened on MTV and this release however, is the inclusion of an additional song and interview. Whereas the MTV show concentrated on pre-"Soul Cages" songs, on this release you get excellent performances of "Why Should I Cry For You?" and "The Wild Wild Sea". As proved to be the case with the VH1 Storytellers show, Sting enjoyed himself so much doing the acoustic set, that the following month he did a similar set in his home town of Newcastle at the tiny Buddle Arts Centre. Sadly, although this performance was filmed it has had no similar video release although the songs have been released. The Unplugged video is very interesting though and the songs performed work extremely well in their stripped down versions. END

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show but why only VHS TAPE!!! September 17, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
Yet another great piece of Sting's musical history. Excellent to see drummer Vinnie C. do "Wild Wild Sea" in this acoustic setting. This show provides a different view of Sting's abilities. Well worth owning BUT!!... why in 2007 is it only being offered on this crappy VHS Tape?. For goodness sake it is high time this sort of excellent product was updated and restored onto DVD with proper DTS sound. (Along with Sting's excellent "Soul Cages" concert and the lush rich looking "Summoner's Tales" Lakehouse show.)

I wish these record company guys would keep up and realise that they're shooting themselves in the foot by backing Paris Hilton and the like, and ignoring real musical history such as this.

Bought for a friend and together we enjoyed a friendly, informal music session with Sting (this was when he had hair!). A great VHS and well worth keeping.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ehhh, I've heard much better from Sting May 17, 2014
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
It's not Sting's fault - the sound mix on this video was pretty pitiful. I have most of his solo cds and the greatest hits of The Police. I was disappointed in the lack of quality of this tape. Granted, it's a pretty old recording, but it shows. I'd suggest buying his solo cds over this and MTV should have him come back and do another, far better MTV Unplugged concert. His voice deserves another opportunity to take advantage of the more advanced technology.
