The first ever track I heard by Rory was "Walk on Hot Coals" from the Blueprint album. After hearing the lines "walk on hot coals, sleep on a bed on nails...walk on thin ice, skate on razor blades" I was hooked. The man knows life, love & blues (and a nice pint). This was back in the seventies and the next time in the "record shop" (anyone remember those?) I couldn't remember the album and got "Tattoo" by (fortunate) mistake which has "A Million Miles Away". Years passed while trying to rebuild my vynyl collection to disc and I picked up "Irish Tour" and it had both on it. Gave it a shot thinking that those two songs would be hard to capture live. I was literally 'kin blown away. If anybody ever loved live albums, blues, rock and the energy a good show pours over you, please, please, please do yourself a favor. BUY THIS ALBUM! I own about a thousand CD's and this is in constant rotation. Rank it up there with Little Feats' "Waiting For Columbus", Seger's "Live Bullet" & The Allman Brother "At Filmore East". In my humble, but accurate opinion, that says a lot.

Years ago I had the good luck to see Rory in concert in Dublin. Sitting next to me was a young fella' with his eyes out on stalks and his jaw on his chest. At one point he turned to me and said "It's hard to f....n' believe, innit!"
