Taped from a live concert at the London Astoria 2 on February 14th, 1994,the center of attraction is the fabulous talent of Delores O'Riordan, as asinger, songwriter, and performer. In a simple flowing dress, and a redknit cap framing her angelic face, she has total command of the audience,whether prancing about on the stage or standing still and singingquietly. O'Riordan wrote songs # 2, 5, 6, 9, 11 and 13 alone, and therest are credited to O'Riordan and Hogan. The song list is: 1: "Pretty" 2: "Dreaming My Dreams" 3: "Linger" (a hit that the audience joins for the chorus) 4: "Ridiculous Thoughts" 5: "Daffodil's Lament" (one of the loveliest and most musically complexsongs in this set) 6: "How" 7: "Everything I said" 8: "Not Sorry" 9: "Waltzing Back" (this one is a vocal marvel !) 10: "Dreams" (this is the big one…the hit heard around the world) 11: "Zombie" 12: "Liar" (O'Riordan does a wonderful little jig during this song, and itis the "offical" end of the concert) Encores: 13: "So Cold in Ireland" (perhaps my favorite song of the concert) 14: "Empty" 15: "Still Can't…" The Cranberries are: Delores O'Riordan, vocals and guitar / Fergal Lawler, drums / Noel Hogan,guitar / Mike Hogan, bass. This is terrific concert footage of a great and unique artist; she isbeautiful to look at, and magical to hear. Total running time is 65minutes.
This VHS tape includes a Cranberries concert which took place in London in 1994. It's a must for Cranberries fans because it's the band's first official video release and I have to say it's one of the most beautiful concerts I have on tape. You will have the chance to watch the band performing the best songs from the first 2 albums. If you are a Cranberries fan who wants new stuff, you can alsocheck out their new DVD called 'Beneath The Skin'.
Small scale London gig shot with no imagination and with very poor (almost bootleg) video quality. Probably quite enjoyable if you were there at the time and although Delores and co. play their hearts out this dvd doesn't show them at their best.
Check out their other releases and don't waste your money on this.
Through alot of Cranberries performances and Dolores performances i've noticed there is always a small problem with the sound guy, a few times through out this Live DVD you notice Dolores signal for the sound to be turned up.
The track Daffodil Lament does seem to be abit spoiled by the sound being to quiet, like the music is supposed to kick in and nothing seems to change.
Despite all that it is an incredible and very enjoyable DVD and a must have in any Cranberries collection.
