Biography

Biography by John Bush

A photogenic family band comprising three sisters and one brother, the Corrs -- vocalist Andrea, drummer Caroline, violinist Sharon and guitarist/keyboard player Jim -- blend the music of their Irish background with contemporary pop/rock elements. The quartet formed in 1991 and enjoyed regional popularity in Ireland until 1994, when the American ambassador to the ... Read more in Amazon's The Corrs Store

Product Description

Includes Two Bonus Tracks Not on Euro Version: 'so Young'& 'Dreams'.

Amazon.com

The Corrs sound comfortably at home on this orchestrally enhanced acoustic gig, recorded at Ardmore Studios outside Dublin in early October 1999. With only two studio albums to their credit, it may seem a bit early to go for an Unplugged rerun, but the inclusion of two new Corrs-penned songs and a trio of previously unheard covers, in addition to 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 arrangements--"What Can I Do" in particular works better than the dance-remix hit version. --Johnny Black

5.0 out of 5 stars A Remarkable Success! December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Ireland's pride and joy, The Corrs, are congratulated on their spectacular unplugged performance and excellent album. Never failing to amaze us, this is yet another fantastic album which deserves much praise.
Consisting of both new and old tracks, they were able to deliver mesmerising pieces such as 'Only When I Sleep' and 'Forgiven Not Forgotten', beautifully complemented with splendid orchestral arrangement.
Songs such as 'Radio', 'At Your Side' and 'Old Town' were introduced for the first time with favourable outcome. The tune to 'Radio' is somewhat unique, differing it from other tracks, yet is able to blend in well. For a good source of encouragement and inspiration, 'At Your Side' and the cover version of REM's 'Everybody Hurts', helps (both lyrically and melodically) provide reassurance and warmth to one's heart. In 'Old Town', it has been said that Andrea Corr shows certain similarity to that of Karen Carpenter from the Carpenters, based on her voice and the catchy tune of the song.
A true breathtaking track was the cover version of Mary Black's 'No Frontiers'...a lovely duet performed by Sharon and Caroline Corr, with just the simple playing of the piano and these two angelic voices - It is purely serene.
The sibling quartet's rendition of Jimmy Hendrix's 'Little Wing' is a perfect example of Celtic-Pop, blended together. Listening to that celtic touch in this track makes one wonder of the amazing combination and how much there is to be admired.
For those who have a burning desire and affection for Irish tunes, be rest assured that 'Toss The Feathers' and 'Lough Erin Shore' will be of NO disappointment whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wowee! Fantastic! December 9, 1999
By Ben
Format:Audio CD
Wow! They've done it again. The Corrs have proven time and time again that they CAN perform live and this is one exceptional recording. Besides performing songs from their previous two studio albums, there are six new songs, all of them beautifully performed. Radio and Rainy Day as well as Old Town are so fresh sounding, you'll never take the disc out of your CD player. As is their trademark sound, expect a Celtic-pop-orchestra sound. It works! Although this is an unplugged album, the songs ring through loud & clear and it actually sounds like a studio recording. A pity though, they didn't really interact with the audience a little bit more. This album is worth your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars InCORRigible May 13, 2000
By "xpio"
Format:Audio CD
The unchanging Corrs have done it again with their smashing album, Unplugged. The CD gave an air of being right there with them and maybe that's true of all "unplugged"s, but I just thought this was absolutely fab. It's amazing how talented the Corrs are - I was surprised to see only 12 reviews for this CD. They are all very good but my absolute fav player is Caroline - having heard her in "Toss the Feathers" I don't think anyone could doubt she is a world-class drummer.
The CD includes both the famous Corrs songs ("Only when I sleep" has been in my head for three days now) and traditional Irish folk songs which are great. The album ends with a Corrs version of "Everybody Hurts", performed exceptionally well. To Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and Jim - thumbs up, five stars - you guys rule!

5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest unplugged album of all times! December 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
For those who do not know the corrs, they are an irish band who has already conquered europe and is touring is US. This unplugged album is amazing, not only for fans of the band, but also for people who like music with quality.
The CD was recorded in MTV studios last year, and has already sold thousands copies around the world. It certainly has memorable tracks, such as REM's "Everybody Hurts", in a very touching interpretation of the corrs.
"Radio", a song later released in their studio album IN BLUE, is loved by fans in the acoustic version. The recording is great, and you can listen to every single instrument of the orchestra who joined them in this special. "At your side", another track recorded for IN BLUE, is also good to listen to.
It's also worth mentioning "Runaway", one of the bands greatest hits, which became very powerful in acoustic version.
In the unplugged album, you can also find the great "Old Town", a cheerful classic and popular song, which is one of my favorites.
Other great track is "No frontiers", from Jimmy McCarth. It has the wonderful vocals of Sharon (violinist) and Caroline (drummer), and the lyrics make it a very special song.
The greatest performance of the orchestra who joined them in this unplugged is in "Only when I sleep". Everytime I listen to it, I get emotional.
This is certainly one of the best CD's I have. It doesn't matter if you do not know the corrs or if you are already a fan...just get this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice evening with the Corrs December 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Unplugged" has been recorded on 5th October 1999 at Ardmore Studios in Ireland for MTV Music Television (MTV produces Unplugged series since 80`s) in pleasant atmosphere accompanied by The Irish Film Orchestra. In my opinion, this is one of the best, even the best concert in The Corrs' career. Containing their classics (Only When I Sleep, Runaway, What Can I Do...), some covers (Old Town by Phil Lynott, No Frontiers by Jim McCarthy, Everybody Hurts by R.E.M.) and two new songs taken from the prepared In Blue album (Radio, At Your Side) - this is a short preview of the stuff you can find there. But if you listen to this CD, you will be simply breathless. You know, all the Corrs' songs seem to be written especially for an acoustic performance which really suits them... I must not forget their talent and their ability to play live so fantastic. Unfortunatelly, before this CD was released, Corrs' mom Jean died at the hospital while waiting for lungs transplantation...
Songs review
Only When I Sleep - opening the concert - "Ladies and Gentlemen, please, welcome... The Corrs!". Sit down, feel comfortable, more than one hour of the best music is expecting you...
What Can I Do - the beginning is inspired by the original version from the Talk On Corners album, but the vocals are replaced by strings. After refrain you can feel the influence of remix by Tin Tin Out. It ends with impressive "Hold me and love me", typicall for the live performance...
Radio - the first new song on the album, full of memories and nostalgy of what we had and what is over now... It was performed brilliantly on the concert, maybe that's the reason I don't undersatnd how it was even possible to defile it few month later for In Blue album...
