    Tori + Strings was divine. And those quartet boys were so cute. I highly doubt that ever happens again, but I would LOVE it if she did! It is SO CRIMINAL that no professionally produced/mastered NOH shows were ever created.

    Videos of NOH shows, I meant. Such a missed opportunity!

    I agree, that was very special! I don't understand the choices she makes sometimes. Or actually quite often...

    I'd imagine doing a mini tour like this with a band would be too expensive. This feels very spontaneous - a few dates in a limited geographical region, then a few festival dates dispersed over the summer. With a band she'd probably need to do a substantially larger number of dates to break even, as well as more rehearsal time and a tighter schedule.

    I agree about strings>band

    & missed opportunity for live DVD or cd
    She released all those Legs & Boots in the later band tours
    But No 96, 98 or 99?!? And now none with octet or orchestra!?!

    For realz! Although 96 has Live from New York which was fairly representative of the DDI tour.

    Yeah no, she's been sounding consistently amazing these past few shows. The only thing I could possibly fault her for in that "I Can't See New York" performance is that I think she's relying a little too heavily on her head voice that it almost sounds falsetto. Still, a beautiful performance.

    Said no one ever... I mean, like what?!

    Her voice sounds great for a woman of 52 that's been consistently touring forever now.

    This and plus her vocals never sounded this good post OSW tour.I literally can't.
    the draught was the very worst

    Sorry, i`m just not seeing the praise! to me, the only thing that saves her from sounding completely tone deaf is the echo effect. i wish i didn`t agree, but after seeing her live in barcelona, then watching these videos, i think she should`ve taken 2015 off.

    I don't think she sounded that great in any of the Barcelona videos, but I can't judge since I wasn't there. If you were there and say she sounded that way, I'd believe it. That said, I think some of these other videos sound great. I like that ICSNY and Roosterspur, anyways.

    Yeah, some of these are so good that had I not known they were from 2015, I wouldn't be able to tell. Sorry the barcelona show was a bust for a lot of people, and obviously these audience recorded videos aren't going to have top notch sound, but the majority of these songs sound just as good as any 2001 show.

    yes how exciting I can play that on my VHS recorder. Wait no I can't because it's probably in PAL Format and also I don't have a VHS recorder...
    she should rerelease this (and other things) on DVD like she did with the Montreux Festival. This could actually be a nice bonus when she does the remaster of Boys for Pele
