Acoustic versions of “Analyse” and “Linger” resurface

Back in August 2001, The Cranberries embarked on a U.S.promo tour, visiting several radio stations to promote the upcoming release of Wake Up and Smell the Coffee with live performances, most of them played in an acoustic format.

Thanks to a couple of e-mails sent to KBCO – World Class Rock, we are proud to tell you that you can now listen back to “Linger” and “Analyse”, the two songs the band performed at this Boulder (Colorado) radio station on August 16, 2001. A big thanks to the personnel of the 97.3 FM. 

This version of “Analyse” was also featured on KBCO Studio C – Volume 13, a locally-sold charity compilation back in 2001.

During the 1990’s and early 2000’s, The Cranberries recorded many other acoustic performances during promotional tours, amongst them a MTV unplugged episode and unforgettable versions of “I Can’t Be With You” (2 Meter Session – 1993), “False”, “Sunday” (KCRW – 1993), “Animal Instinct” and “In the Ghetto” (BBC Radio 1 – 1999). The idea of releasing a compilation regrouping the best of these acoustic performances would surely please tones of Cranberries fans. Santa Claus, are you listening?

In the meantime, you can listen to both KBCO acoustic versions of “Linger” and “Analyse” and a short interview on the radio station website, and tell us about your all-time favorite acoustic performance by the ‘Berries in the discussion box below.

You can also listen to other Studio C performances here.
