Please notice that it's only suitable for persons of 12 years and over! So hide it among the other unsuitable stuff you have collected. (Joke)
I'll spend the day listening to the 7 CDs. And watching the DVD (great idea to include it, have no idea where my original copy is. Probably someone borrowed it.) Unfortunately the recordings were made before Bad Penny and Shadowplay, otherwise a good collection. The booklet is a gem; should be a good base for writing the final and definite biography in 450 pages.

mine arrived today :D
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Saw 10.44am on clock yesterday. So RG was around. I missed my bus home from work while looking at my touch phone and then got on the wrong bus. Well I am tired. Finally got home and a lovely package arrived..... Lucky I am off next week so I will be listening to it. Thanks Rory. Really looking forward. Life s stressful but you bring a smile on my face.

Irish Tour was on Sky Arts last night, coincidence?
(Yeah, probably was).

Mine just arrived. As I was downloading the discs into my computer, I was reading the enclosed booklet and came across this little tidbit I never knew, Thin Lizzy opened for Rory at the Dublin gig! My question is did Phil and the boys open all the Irish Tour shows? I can't believe I never knew this before!

After listening carefully to some of the CDs I must say that this was during his best musical period! It is almost impossible to say that this is a live recording - might as well have been made in a studio. The guitar stuff is so thrillingly good: all these variations in sound were obtained by varying the volume and base/trebble knobs on the guitar, shifting between the microphones, and pedals. I don't recall any of the giants having this fantastic range of sounds (except Hendrix). It is as good as Fleetwood Mac live in Boston where they tried on three CDs to make a recording for a live LP.
It is a pity that this was before some of Rory's greatest opuses.
Why was there eventually a decline in everything? Louder volume, a tiredness of the whole business, not time and enough effort to maintain his licks.
