2010 import reissue on double 180-gram vinyl LPs. Caught between heavy metal and grunge, Alice in Chains was a powerhouse band in the early 1990 's. Going acoustic seemed contrary to the band's very nature, but they were game to give it a try for MTV's famous show. Although their records dominated the charts for the first half of the decade, Alice in Chains had not performed a single concert since 1993. Given how good they sound together on this double LP cut during their performance on April 10, 1996, it is hard to believe they hadn't played a live concert together in 3 years. Reissued on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, Alice in Chains' "MTV Unplugged" is a strong performance worth repeat listening. It is no surprise the original album peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
