Tori Amos: Live at Montreux 1991/1992 [Blu-ray]
Frequently Bought Together
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".

What really surprised me is that her 1991 performance was so outstanding. This particular performance wasn't very fulfilling for me on the CD but after WATCHING it, it gave me a whole new perspective. While she has been described as "timid" by others, for me she looks "shy", which I think is a WONDERFUL thing. I've seen Tori live probably at least a few dozen times. Some shows she has completely disappointed me and others I was in an emotional elation beyond words. Unfortunately, as time has gone by these emotional highs have gotten fewer and farther in between. Not that I don't enjoy Tori today, but it was her earlier work that captured my heart. This recording takes me back to that time. Those of you that understand what I'm talking about will totally understand where I'm coming from.
My high points were Upside Down and Thank You. Even after loving Tori for 20 years, the proof of her ability to take me to a wonderful place in my heart is evidenced by the fact that even today while watching this performance, it still brought plenty of tears to my eyes and cheeks.
Thanks, Tori for making this wonderful show available on Blu-ray. It's worth more than gold.
If you are only a fan of her later work, then this disc is not for you. If you don't like Tori, its really not for you. For those of us who followed her from her early days, its an essential collector's item.
I really love her!!!!!!!
Thank you Tori for editing and producing this blu-ray.
It is a must have video.
DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THIS BLU-RAY (or DVD).
Blu-ray quality 1080i excelent resolution!!!!....., Audio DTS Extraordinary as well.
Worth every dollar i paid for it, blu ray version is amazing, even when its from the early 90's.
Seriously recommended if you are looking for a good virtuoso live performance.
With regard to the disc quality, PQ and AQ are excellent as expected.
And the concerts...Tori sang songs from her first CD album and somehow hearing these songs have brought back memories of my younger days.
And to compare the two concerts, 1991 is a much better concert and has tons of replay value. But Tori looks prettier and acts more confident in the 1992 concert. Winter is perhaps my favorite song from the 1991 concert.
For obvious reason, I have never had the chance to attend her performance on stage, so buying this BD and watching her sing is "almost" like a dream come true for me.
No question about it, this BD is a 5-star from me.
This BD is a good buy if you are a fan or someone who just wants to watch and hear some nice music in a cozy setting.

The video quality is very good, and the audio is superb. My only complaint is the semi-crappy Yamaha piano, but that is quickly forgotten once she starts playing.
