The DVD has received a lot of praise and, if you’re a serious fan of Rory Gallagher, it is essential since we can no longer see the great man perform live in concert. I’m not normally a fan of concert DVDs but there are some exceptions.
As for the CD, it’s always good to hear Rory Gallagher perform live in concert. My only problem is that I recommend that anyone new to Rory Gallagher should start with Irish Tour 74. Then it becomes a question of just how many Rory Gallagher live albums you want to own.
