Following the success of Mariah Carey's second multi-platinum album in a row, Emotions, and her well publicized reluctance to tour, fans and critics alike questioned whether her perfect pitch and astounding 5-octave vocal range was a result of studio trickery. In reality, Carey's reluctance to tour was based on a very real case of stage fright and the strenuous workout that many of her songs required.

To put all claims of her being a manufactured artist to rest, Carey's management booked an appearance on the popular live music series "MTV Unplugged, " which would dispel all doubts and reach an enormous viewing audience simultaneously.

Presented here in it's entirety, is Mariah Carey's recording session from that memorable night in March of 1992, singing before an intimate audience at New York City's Kaufman Astoria Studios. Backed by an impressive roster of highly respected studio musicians that comprise her core band, in addition to a string section, vocal ensemble and the Saturday Night Live horn section, this now legendary Mariah Carey performance isn't strictly "unplugged," but for the first time ever it is presented here complete and unedited.
