CD/DVD: "Live At Montreux 1991/92"

Tori Amos descended on the scene in the early '90s brimming with newfound creativity, intelligence, sensitivity and an exacting literary bearing. Celebrated by critics and the public alike, that first spotlight was a heady time in the young singer/songwriter's career. On September 30, 2008, Eagle Rock Entertainment, through its wholly-owned Eagle Eye Media subsidiary, will release Tori Amos Live At Montreux 1991/1992 on both CD (16 songs) and DVD (90 minutes, 19 songs) simultaneously sold separately. It is a rare glimpse into that initial breathy rush of a great artist's ascendancy.

The '91 gig came only months before her Little Earthquakes debut had catapulted her into an instant icon, the '92 appearance shortly thereafter. The progression in both performance and audience receptivity is appreciable. Material includes most of her stellar debut but also tracks from her indie EPs and some notable covers (Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "Thank You" as well as Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit").

Tori Amos' stark confessional style immediately garnered millions of young fans searching for some semblance of self in an all too imperfect world. Tori's melodic sense, coupled with her unerring eye for the human foibles of a generation twice removed from the '60s sensibilities of her influences, made for a uniquely special art. There was no, and is no, precedent for such a talent. Tori's obliquely personal oeuvre digs down deep into such dramatic lyrical topics as sexuality, religion and personal tragedy. She touches that universal chord. It's small wonder she became a major voice right from the outset of her career.
