Rory people.... I came across this track on the "Taste - Taste The Fairfield" boot... I think is listed on some old covers of "Unplug This" as well however my version of Unplug this does not have it..



On the cover it lists this as a filler track taken from "German Irish TV" - anyone know if that footage exists? or even know anymore about the track?

Hi Steve, thanks for sharing this beautiful acoustic track. I haven't heard this track before. It should have been on WWW, IMHO ..

Sounds to me if it can be confirmed to be a Taste track.. That Rory is accompanied by someone else there, maybe Richard McCracken??

Slainte Jay Jay

According to the Rory Videography it's listed as 14/03/1970 - BAFF TV Show From German TV WDF - Rory played "Catfish" & "Acoustic Ocean" - So footage has been recorded... :)))

Has anyone ever seen this clip?

There is reason to believe that this footage does still exist in the archive of German tv station WDR (WDF). Mainly because German tv had a far less radical wiping policy if compared to the BBC e.g. I once contacted Daniel G. about the matter and gave him all information I had (including that, I believe, Christian Wagner, who later was involved in Rockpalast, was the producer/director and should be the right person to get in touch with). That was the last time I heard something about it. I have no idea whether it could be recovered from the WDR vault in the mean time, but I still believe it should be there.

This said I'm also 95% sure that there is a video bootleg of that performance circulating, though obviously it's still pretty damn rare. It's got to be out there, I have seen it on various trade lists.

Very gentle and beautiful track.I'm sure someone has it, but there are all kinds of people, and fans, unfortunately, some to keep for yourself and do not want to share what they have. As I myself a collector of DVDs and I have experienced this ;) ;) ;)

I know Steve that you will share, those are real fans, but Rory's fans are so great people like to share your DVDs, and I said in my previous post about Eric Burdon fans there are some who all keep to themselves, and even you will not say from where the concert some footage, etc.

I think that Rory's spirit among fans, just saying i have very nice experience with all Rory fans from all over the world, even Japan ;) ;) ;)
