Alice In Chains' unplugged album is great, but my favorite has to be Nirvana.
How about The Tea Party's "Alahambra"..? quite good.
Bruce's In Concert: MTV Plugged CD has 13 tracks on it.
This thread is a painful reminder of the incredible "unplugged" vault material that MTV is sitting on. Consider some of the bands that have appeared that haven't had an officially-released recording:
The Allman Brothers
The Black Crowes/Tesla
Crosby, Stills and Nash
Live (not a huge fan, but this was an incredible performance)
Michelle Shocked/Indigo Girls
10,000 Maniacs (they appeared twice; would love to have the original performance on CD)
The Smithereens/Graham Parker
Stevie Ray Vaughan/Joe Satriani
Various hair metal bands: Ratt/Poison/Great White/Damn Yankees/Vixen/Winger/Slaughter
More where this came from, of course.
It was good, coming from someone who's lukewarm on H&O at best. Didn't they also do a "Storytellers"?
Actually it was released. I have "The Corrs: Unplugged" on Atlantic (7567-80986-2) which came with the bonus single "Rainy Day"
There is also a Region 2 DVD of it
I'll also second AIC and Pearl Jam unplugged (although its not out on CD, but its very easy to find).
Pearl Jam Live at Benaroyal Hall. Full acoustic concert, actually a little here and there is plugged in.
Counting Crows: Across the Wire Disc 1. Its from their VH1 storytellers set, it's top notch in my opinion.
The Cure has a great "Unplugged" CD It was a bonus from their Greatest Hits CD. The Greatest Hits DVD is great also. It only has 4 acoustic tracks on it though.
A few of Elvis Costello's Unplugged cuts have shown up as bonus tracks, first on his EPs and now on his RHINO reissues.
Where can I get a hold of this?!?!?!
I also wouldn't mind checking out the Seal and Live shows.
A couple of the SRV tracks are on the 3 disc box set that came out a year or two ago. Otherwise, you'd have to find a boot. I'm sure someone recorded it to vhs and made a cd from it, although I haven't ever come across it myself.
The tracks that are on the box set are very good, a highlight for me.
On disc 3 of the SRV boxset, is
Pride and Joy
from MTV's Unplugged, 1990.
i have a svcd of the SRV unplugged
i will trade or B&P the show for you guys if you want
here is a link to my shows
the best acoustic show

I know this is an old thread but if anyone pops by to read it you could try Korn's unplugged which is surprisingly good and alsoCD2 of queens of the stone age Era Vulgaris is an astonishing acoustic cd.
Although it's yet to be released (one can only hope) try to check out Vampire Weekend Unplugged on Palladia some time, they sound amazing in this setting with a small orchestra.
And, though I'm a big Clapton fan, if I never hear his Unplugged disc again (especially Layla) I will be eternally happy.
If you're a Black Crowes fan, the brothers Robinson put out an acoustic CD (and DVD) of shows they did a few years back. Songs from the Crowes catalog including a bunch of covers and never released stuff. Sounds great!!
Shakira's unplugged! from 1999
The Sting "Unplugged" from "The Soul Cages" days is fascinating. I had it on VHS a long time ago but recently found a rip of it...great stuff.
