Live at Montreux 1991/1992 is a Tori Amos live album and DVD set, released on September 22, 2008 in the United Kingdom and on September 30, 2008 in the United States, featuring two separate performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival early in her career. The first 10-song set was recorded on July 3, 1991 with the second 9-song set recorded one year later on July 7, 1992.[1] The bulk of the set list for each show was taken from Amos' solo debut album Little Earthquakes.

Eagle Rock Entertainment, a distributor for many releases of Montreux Jazz Festival performances, released the CD and DVD sets over 15 years after these performances were originally recorded.

Release history[edit]

While audio bootlegs of these two performances have been circulating for many years,[2] this is the first official release for this pair of early Amos performances. The same footage was released on Blu-ray format in both the United Kingdom and the United States in December 2008.
