Columbia/Legacy will on Sept. 18 reissue four vintage “MTV Unplugged” albums from Mariah Carey, Alice In Chains, Tony Bennett and Bob Dylan. Each package also includes a DVD with tracks and extras that did not appear on the original home video versions.
Carey’s “Unplugged,” recorded in 1992, has three music videos, an interview, behind-the-scenes clips and the artist’s own home movies. Alice In Chains’ session, taped in April 1996, features the unaired songs “Frogs,” “Angry Chair” and “The Killer Is Me.”
Bennett’s “Unplugged,” which introduced his music to a new generation of listeners in the throes of grunge, includes the audio tracks “(Just a) Little Street Where Old Friends Meet” and “When Do the Bells Ring for Me.” The DVD boasts the music video for “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and interviews with Bennett and Elvis Costello.
Meanwhile, Dylan’s release appends “Dignity” to the CD portion as well as “Tombstone Blues,” “John Brown” and “Desolation Row” to the DVD.
