The mysterious Alanis Morissette, who rose to recording stardom in 1995 with Jagged Little Pill (she must have sold a like a bagillion copies of that CD), sort of drifted into another world. Still there, but not blazing hot … was it the fame?
Her music didn’t fit into any particular box … probably closer to folk ballads; a storyteller, but with an edge. Her fans continued to adore her, but no one could have repeated that kind of success, especially if her focus and life-goals included other things than grinding out new CDs on a routine basis.
Word came down this week that Eagle Rock Entertainment has selected Apr. 23 as the street for DVD and Blu-ray editions of Alanis Morissette: Live At Montreux 2012, her first live performance release in nearly a decade. That is very good news indeed!
Recorded live in early July of last year, this concert was a monster presentation of 20 of her songs, including the iconic “Ironic.” Other selections in the mix included “Hand in My Pocket,” “Head Over Feet,” “All I Really Want” and “You Learn.” Basically this live concert is a fan’s dream.
