There is a Greatest Double album poll here ... http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/pages/double_album

You can add Other and specify a title - so I added Irish Tour.

Could we bump it into the lead ???

I am absolutey ADDICTED to IT'74 (ever since 1976 when I bought it, especially after my personal Irish Tour '13 this April!!)

One thing I have never gotten through is the chant the crowd is shouting after 'Walk On Hot Coals'
It sounds somewhat like "Back on Rory...." for an encore I'm sure

But I cannot understand anything else....Help here?

I know this is a late reply, Tibor77, but you'll still find the remastered Irish Tour '74 CD at www.amazon.co.uk for £5 or £6.

"Nice one Rory, nice one son." To my ears anyway.

Irish Tour 74 is absolutely the best concert footage recorded for a film. I've asked Santa for my own copy!

A few months ago, when it was still being offered on Netflix streaming, I watched Irish Tour 74. As soon as I saw the seagulls at the beginning, a fuzzy memory of seeing it before came into my head. I remember driving 75 miles to Nashville with a musician friend on a Sunday afternoon to see the film. It was the Belcourt Theater I think. Recently, somewhere on the internet I read that Irish Tour 74 didn't play in US movie theaters or at least not in secondary markets like Nashville would have been in back in '74-'75. Does anyone out there know what US theaters screened it? Or where such a listing might be? I've searched in vain. I'd just like to know for sure.

Hi anniewithaj,

I never saw Irish Tour 74 until its re-release years after Rory's passing. It seems it was another of Rory's achievements that we here did not learn of until years after the fact. I lived in the San Gabriel Valley outside of L.A, back then, and I remember seeing other films of a similar genre at the art house type theaters, such as the Nuart Cinema in Santa Monica or the Rialto in South Pasadena. Covina had a little theater that used to run those types of films as well in the 70's- that's where I saw The Last Waltz, and Renaldo and Clara, back when they were first released.

Seems if IT74 were to have been shown in the U.S. a major market like Los Angeles would have gotten it. But then again, I imagine if a die-hard Rory fan who also happened to run a theater were to obtain a copy, I'm sure it would have been run, and Nashville is no stranger to good music and die-hard music fans. So, consider yourself one of the lucky few! :D

I have the BluRay copy of IT74, and there is a wonderful running narrative by Rory's brother Donal and Rory's bass player on an alternate audio track, gives some interesting insight to the making of the film ;)
