THE UNPLUGGED COLLECTION, VOLUME ONE features acoustic versions of songs recorded for the television series "MTV Unplugged."
Recorded between 1990 and 1994. Includes liner notes by Alex Coletti.
Stevie Ray Vaughan proves a good choice to introduce this MTV UNPLUGGED back-to-basics, acoustic-based compilation. A man and his talent, spare and unforgiving, with no accoutrements to distract from the essence of his blues-guitar classic "Pride And Joy." Eric Clapton, who catapulted the television series into a different stratosphere with his award-winning performance, is also represented with his Bo Diddley cover "Before You Accuse Me."
A proven forum for the blues, UNPLUGGED also gives pop vocalists (k.d. lang, Don Henley, and the remarkable Annie Lennox, who plumbs emotional depths with a mesmerizing "Why") handsome opportunities to show off. It allows artsy folkies (R.E.M. and 10,000 Maniacs) to reinvent their canvases, while letting rockers Soul Asylum, Neil Young and Lenny Kravitz provide insights into what their songs sounded like before they got into the studio. Superstar studio creatures (Paul Simon, Elton John, Rod Stewart) benefit most from the stripped-down showcase. Paul McCartney screws up the Beatles' classic "We Can Work It Out," leaving it rough-edged, yet perfect.
This album provides the opportunity to dissect these artists' craft. You hear every unadorned flaw, the way music was supposed to be played: from the heart and soul, not from the corporate headquarters. THE UNPLUGGED COLLECTION is a wonderful document of where music has come from, and where we have taken it.
Satisfactory - ...Neither the highs nor the lows make sense together; the collection is like owning a well-constructed CD carrier with `Unplugged' crested on it...
6 - Good - ...a song apiece from 16 shows--some of them pretty essential (Neil Young, REM, KD Lang), some fair to middling...and some total turkeys...the real surprise is Eagle Don Henley's version of the standard `Come Rain Or Come Shine'...

...[these] acoustic sets allow musicians to explore the nuances of their songs in an intimate setting....an album long on tasteful renderings... - Rating: B
