Alanis Morissette - MTV Unplugged

Alanis Unplugged is the fifth album and first live album by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, released by Maverick Records in the United States on November 9, 1999 (see 1999 in music).

It comprises songs performed by Morissette on the television program MTV Unplugged.

Twelve tracks were included on the album, but Morissette performed several others, including "Baba", "Thank U" and "Your House", during her Unplugged concert.

The first single, "That I Would Be Good", was moderately successful, and two other tracks, "King of Pain" and "You Learn" were released as singles outside North America.

As of September 2008 the album has sold 646,000 copies in the U.S.In addition to material from Morissette's first two U.S.

albums, Alanis Unplugged featured performances of three previously unreleased songs from her tours: "No Pressure over Cappuccino", "Princes Familiar" and "These R the Thoughts".

Morissette has stated that "Princes Familiar" in particular is one of her favourite and most vocally challenging songs.

She performed it on her 2005 Diamond Wink Tour, where she dedicated it to "all of the Dads in the audience".

The ballad "No Pressure over Cappuccino", one of the first songs she wrote following the release of Jagged Little Pill, is presumably about the singer's twin brother, Wade.

Featuring cleaner vocals, slower arrangements and a few drastic reinventions, Alanis Unplugged foreshadowed much of Morissette's later, softer work, particularly 2005's Jagged Little Pill Acoustic and the accompanying Diamond Wink Tour.
