Best Version of A Million Miles Away

Postby RobertaSparrow » 22 Aug 2017, 02:17

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project, and I wanted recommendations.

What is your favorite version of A Million Miles Away? A live recording, one of the better quality audio, and where Rory is at the top of his game.

I'm leaning toward the Madrid version-



or this one from Kircshner's Rock Concert



Thanks much,

:mrgreen: Cindy

Enschede, Holland January 6 1995. I choose this, not because it was, sadly, the last recorded version ever, and Rory heartbreakingly shouts out before the last chorus, "I'll never leave you Ladies and Gentlemen", but in spite of these sad facts. I choose it because of Rory's achingly beautiful Outro solo. Some have called it sublime, and it is. These final played notes is a fitting coda to a life and artist we all love and mourn to this day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP02LDgCUGU

I forgot about this version Capo. I'm going to use this one and the one JimLED recommended as well.

That is mine as well, athough sometimes it is hard to listen to knowing 4 days later he will leave the stage never to return again.

Yes I love Rory's Million Miles Away from Irish Tour 74. I love him playing the song at the Celtic Festival in 1994 and of course his last performance in Holland in 1995.
But I love this version from Montreux 1977.
