Thank you for posting this. I have seen that clip before, but as with many Rory YouTube clips, it disappeared from the scene for a time. Thank you for reposting it. :)

Your welcome, my pleasure.

I hadn't seen this one before, but Rory was spectacular! I love getting to see performance clips of Rory in his element. As a performing musician myself, I love how comfortable and in control he is. Depending on the venue, the crowd, the vibe, it can be a bit overwhelming when things aren't quite right. Rory makes it look so easy, when it's not, lol. I have a great appreciation for his professionalism and enthusiasm. I always learn something from watching him perform and try to apply it to my own performances.

This is one of Rory's most high energy performances on film. But what I love most about this show is Gerry's awesome playing. It's hard to take your eyes of Rory but watch Gerry once in awhile and you will see why Rory loved playing with him.

Many of the old Rory links on YouTube have been changed or deactivated, if any of you find new copies in working order that had been taken down, by all means, feel free to repost them. Gotta keep that flame alive! 8-)

It's a real spirited version of Philby. I thought the whole show rocked hard!

The show is great, but this version of Philby is wonderful, it's as if Rory was the magic flautist.
