Editorial Reviews

These two concerts from Montreux in 1991 and 1992 catch Tori Amos right at the start of her solo career. The first, from July 1991, was filmed a few months before the release of her "Little Earthquakes" album and the second from July 1992 followed a few months after. There is a fascinating progression from one year to the next as she grows in confidence and skill as a live performer, buoyed by the critical and commercial success of the album. Naturally most of the songs are taken from "Little Earthquakes" but there are also rare songs from her various EPs released across the two years which didn't make it onto the album including her distinctive takes on Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "Thank You" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

5.0 out of 5 stars A companion Review to my recent CD purchase October 2, 2008
Format:DVD
What an interesting, introspective look at our girl.

The very first performance you can tell she's nervous, young, and wondering "what the hell am I doing here?". The audience is starts off giving the obligatory "oh, she's playing I should be nice" applause, but by the end they are genuinely interested in Tori. She gives a solid and candid performance of her songs from Little Earthquakes, and is genuinely surprised when they call her out for an encore. You can tell she is still feeling every lyric that she is singing. This may be the raw-est (sp?) we get to see her for a while. My only complaint about this section of the performance is the goofy plug in Yamaha they gave her. [...]

Flash forward to 1992 - a more polished looking Tori takes the stage, and not two measures into "Little Earthquakes" she stops and calls the audience out. "Hey, are you guys here to talk or listen to music? I mean, you paid a lot of money". Shades of things to come. She plays the entire set, almost glaring at the front row. The songs are more sure, the piano playing is solid, and this time they give her a real piano!

It's so interesting to see the two Tori's contrasted. All in all, worth the purchase because it reminded me of a simpler time in Tori's career, before the glam squads, before the multiple personality concept albums, and before the orange wig and leather dress.

5.0 out of 5 stars BROUGHT ME TO TEARS October 2, 2008
Format:DVD
I watched "Winter" from this DVD on youtube...it was absolutely fabulous. The best performance I have seen of Tori doing this song. It brought me to tears, moved me from a deep place. I am happy to have been a part of her audience from '94-'08 to see how much she has grown and matured, how much we have grown and matured in a world view. Tori is still right on in my book, even though she doesn't have the "freshness" some say as she had in her earlier years. This is just a reminder to me of Tori's genius. We may not have had this LIVE at Montreux if she had not made it this far into her music career--a big star she is--that's the way it needs to be for someone like her. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I was absolutely blown away by this DVD. The first performance full of innocence and pure raw talent. The second a year later at the same venue after a year on the road and that experience and edge the road brings with it,she had obviously changed some and hardened up a bit. Having toured extensively in the music business in the 80's myself, I see first hand the "road" difference between both shows. Both are excellent in their own ways. If you are a TA fan at all, you must have this one in your collection !

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Captivating March 18, 2009
By Shannon
Format:DVD
Being a Tori Amos fan has been one of the most rewarding and rich experiences in my personal musical history. Her songs have been a deeply felt and important part of my life for years now. Like all Tori fans, I have a great appreciation for her live shows and I actually think it's a shame that more of them aren't available on DVD. Comparing this DVD with 2003's Tori Amos: Welcome to Sunny Florida (DVD with Bonus CD in Jewel Case) is a great exercise in examining the path she has trend over the last two decades. I wish there were more stops to be visited along the way!

That being said, Live at Montreux is an absolutely riveting experience from start to end. I've heard the songs of Little Earthquakes dozens and dozens of times, but watching these two concerts made me feel as though I was hearing each one for the very first time. In fact, between the two concerts Tori plays all but 3 songs off of her debut album, as well as two Led Zeppelin covers (Whole Lotta Love and Thank You) and her signature cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. Just as watching this DVD in comparison with 'Sunny Florida' is a real treat, even looking at the 1991 and 1992 concerts side by side is a unique experience. The liner notes describe the two concerts as something like a before and after shot. My thoughts:

1991: For me, this concert is really the reason to purchase this DVD. This is such a one of a kind show. As others have mentioned, Tori is here pre-fame ('Little Earthquakes' was yet to be released) and the Moody Blues concert goers have no idea who she is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Tori purchase, hands down January 20, 2009
Format:DVD
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.
