Tori Amos Sells Official Bootlegs

Published: 2005-08-10
The flaming-haired piano siren that is Tori Amos has a wide and devoted legion of fans, all of whom get their hands on all the Amos merch they possibly can. Bootleg recordings of live performances are always a hot item, and now Amos has taken the pirate craft into her own hands.

This fall Amos will release not one, not two, but six high quality live "bootleg" recordings through legal avenues. Only available for purchase only through, the first two go on sale August 30th.

Amos recorded the first of these discs at an April 15th, 2005, performance in Chicago that featured songs like "Mother," "The Beekeeper," and a cover of Jim Croce's "Operator." The second album, which reproduces an April 25th, 2005, Los Angeles date, also includes a cover, but this time it's Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer," alongside of Amos's originals "Yes, Anastacia" and "Cloud on My Tongue," among others.

tori is so awsome. she has such a heart for us that she just says, 'Here, if you want it that bad, here ya go.' That's just the relationship we have with her that keeps us so intensly devoted in the first place.

I want to agree with you, I really do. It's just that this comes off to me more as trying to cash in on what has been a huge part of being a Tori fan. I don't think it's her doing this but rather her new record company realizing that the fans love the live stuff and will get it one way or another. I'd prefer to think of her as having been the one that said "Here you go" but I just don't know.
