Twenty years have passed since the release of Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill”. And to celebrate this anniversary a four CD collector’s edition will be released today.

This boxed set of course includes the original recordings, remastered, ten unreleased demo tracks from that period, the acoustic album that was released to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of Jagged Little Pill and a dozen live recordings from a performance recorded at London’s now defunct “Subterranean” rock club. And I’d say this is an acceptable collection, overall. But it is missing something that would have had me running to the store to buy it.

Upon hearing of this release I had hoped her label would consider including a bonus DVD containing all of the album’s music videos and several live recordings. But it appears that they have chosen to pass on another opportunity to do this.

They could have added these music videos to the “Jagged Little Pill Live” DVD in 1999, or “Feast on Scraps” DVD in 2002 or on the bonus DVD included with “The Collection” in 2005. And although I can view them on Youtube i’m still puzzled as to why I can’t purchase all of these videos on iTunes.

I will probably end up purchasing the unreleased demo recordings and a few live performances from the collection on iTunes. But still, I can’t say i’m satisfied with this release because it didn’t include a DVD.
