The Cranberries (1991 Session)

A big shout out to Dan Hegarty for single handedly keeping the flame of The Fanning Sessions alive. He has already featured the ‘classic’ Frank & Walters session and last week dug out this treat from The Cranberries or The Cranberry Saw Us as they were still at that time known – their first Fanning session recorded 9th March 1991. Once again if anyone out there still has cassette recordings from the 80s Fanning shows in their attic please get in touch as the old archive deperately needs some fresh meat..

  7. Hello!

    Thank you for sharing these Cranberries songs.
    I’m interested in more Cranberries rarities…for example ‘Icicle melts’, ‘Like you used to’ and ‘False’. I have these songs but their quality is not too good.
    I would be very happy to hear them in better quality.

    best wishes: Andrew

    Nice to hear these guys at the startup. Looking back and not hearing these tracks before now gives one a feeling of how they developed the sound to where it is today. And it’s cool because I like either version of the band as in early on or today’s sound in the band. Just pure energy and light always. Thomas
