Listen to Dolores O'Riordan's first ever studio recordings, as featured on acclaimed RTÉ 2FM documentary A History of the Studio 8 Sessions.

Producer and presenter Yvonne Judge writes:

This is a radio doc I made last year about early recordings in RTÉ's Studio 8 of seminal Irish bands. I went into archives and dug up the tapes. Just over 37 minutes in, Noel Hogan and Dave Fanning listen back and chat about these first studio recordings of The Cranberries, featuring a 16-year old Dolores O'Riordan, produced on March 3 1991 by Ian Wilson. She was unavailable last year due to ill health. The original demo includes Dreams and some other tracks from the first album.

Listen and enjoy, she was a startling talent.
