I saw this on Amazon the other day.

The review says


According to the sparse information provided with this release, this recording is from a radio show taped at 'My Father's Place' in Roslyn on Long Island on September 7th 1979 while Rory toured his 'Top Priority' album with Gerry McAvoy and Ted McKenna as his rhythm section. The sound quality is amongst the top end of that of other radio show recordings I have. The band are cooking, without a doubt, and the balance between vocals and instruments is good. There is an awkward, rapid fade at the end of the penultimate track of disc two as the track goes into a bass solo and then the sound quickly comes back in for the final track. Remember, these are live recordings without overdubs or re-recordings added later and there was doubtless some radio station editing to fit the performance into a time slot for broadcast. With the quality of this trio of road warriors, though, there need be no fear that they supply anything but a very good, truly live performance.

Track Listing:
Disc 1
Shin Kicker (3:38)
Last of the Independents (5:40)
Keychain (5:52)
Moonchild (5:10)
The Mississippi Sheiks ( 5:45)
I Wonder Who? (7:47)
Tattoo'd Lady (5:09)
Too Much Alcohol (3:47)
Pistol Slapper Blues (3:02)
Disc 2
Shadow Play (5:42)
Bought & Sold (4:59)
Walk On Hot Coals (5:26)
Messin' With The Kid (5:22)
Bullfrog Blues (2:50) [Quick fade out to avoid bass solo]
Sea Cruise (2:58)

So I finally got hold of this. Excellent radio quality if a bit raw and unpolished, a very in-your-face full-on Rory show from 1979.
5 stars !!!
