Unfortunately Not Enough Content for Your Money

"The music on this cd is good. "Rainy Day" is a fun musical rarity and the other songs are all very well performed but with only 7 songs on the cd I think it's a complete rip off--the songs are good, but not THAT good. For $$ you'd expect to get at least a full concert of live songs but this feels like an extended cd single. I mean I know imports cost more but this simply doesn't have enough music on it to be considered a full length cd. Furthermore, it's called "The Corrs Live" yet some of the songs aren't even live. This purely seems like a mercenary venture. Andrea and Caroline Corr were listed as two of the richest women 30 years old and under in Ireland--now I know why. Save your money."

"I came across this album on accident about a year ago and quickly paid the ridiculous import price for it. Result: "Corrs Live" is a record for collectors only. If that doesn't apply to you, read no further, but, if you are a collector, continue on down the page.The first three tracks were recorded at the Langelands Festival in Denmark during the summer of 1996. While they offer a great look at early Corr performances, it also becomes evident how much the band has matured since then. Andrea Corr no longer talks her way through the songs (thank goodness!) and the sound quality has vastly improved. These tracks do have an "undiscovered band" atmosphere to them, but the microphone distortion is annoyingly distracting. The choice of songs on the album is also questionable. Where 'Runaway' and 'Toss the Feathers' are staples of the Corrs' live performances, the inclusion of 'Secret Life' on this record is somewhat strange. The remaining four tracks provide an unusual collection of acoustical studio sessions, radio edits, and unreleased songs. The acoustic version of 'Forgiven, Not Forgotten' is decent, but not as perfected as they would have it on the MTV "Unplugged" performance a few years later. 'The Right Time' acoustic version is a glimpse into what the song might have been - fans will notice different lyrics at the end. The radio edit of the song is superb, however, with added dance beats that make it better than the album version of the track. This record's biggest highlight, however, is the unreleased 'Rainy Day'. Full of energy, with tongue-in-cheeck lyrics and goofy violin liks, it's one of the band's best loved B-sides.While "Corrs Live" is indeed a unique view at what the Corrs used to be, I would wait until you find a copy on sale if you're planning on buying it, which I would only do if you're a collector. Otherwise, stick to the more generally-released stuff."
Nice, but there could have been more tracks included.

"Okay, first of all The Corrs are great as a live band and this cd proves that, too. I like the song "Rainy Day", originally a B-side for one of their singles. Then, the remix of "The Right Time" disappointed me a bit...but it's certainly not the worst Corrs remix ever made. The others, the live ones, are good, especially "Secret Life" and the acoustic version of "Forgiven, Not Forgotten". A must-have for Corrs fans."
