4.0 out of 5 stars Post-Planxty Troubadour 28 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
After the whirlwind experience that was Planxty, Christy Moore set off to establish his name as a serious folk artist.
Due to the influences of his American heroes, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, and his Irish heroes, Luke Kelly and The Clancy Brothers, Moore gathered a repertoire of contemporary protest songs and songs for the working people (to appeal to a contemporary audience) and combined these with traditional songs of nostalgia, love and loss to highlight the parallel emotions experienced throughout all generations.
With the help of Donal Lunny on bazouki and guitar and Jimmy Faulkner on guitar, Moore created an intimate, personal, "live-in-your-living room" style of album.
The opening track 'Hey Sandy' tells of violence breaking out after US police forces intervened in a peaceful protest in an American University. The second track 'The Boys Of Barr-na-Sraide' is a nostalgic track describing the various antics of a group of men who hung around a community in Listowel, which has since been raized. The third song 'Little Mother' is a song Christy collected while gigging in Norway. 'Clyde's Bonnie Banks', 'Bogie's Bonnie Belle' and 'Black Is The Colour' are all Scottish songs. They deal with love, poverty, loss of love, death and class discrimination. Not exactly the happiest songs ever written or performed, but they demonstrate some beautifully arranged instrumentation between the three musicians and they do create a very special, intimate atmosphere. 'Pretty Boy Floyd' is a very clever Woody Guthrie song depicting a Robin Hood type character persecuted by the US authorities of the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply a genius of an album! 14 April 2000
By Cillian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is quite simply a classic Irish album. Christy is obviously relishing not being tied up in the hectic Planxty schedual anymore and sounds like he's really enjoying just playing a few songs with two friends.The choice of songs is ditinctly un-Planxty, covering a range of English, Scottish and American folksongs ("Clyde's Bonny Banks","Bogey's Bonny Banks","Pretty Boy Floyd") with some newly composed songs ("Hey Sandy","The Boys of Bar na Sraide) scattered among them.This album is an essential for anyone withan interest in Irish music!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Reveiw you see on top 28 Mar 2002
By Cillian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The review you see on top is not about this album.Angela is talking about an album called "Christy Live at the Point". This also a brilliant album but it was recorded two decades after "Live in Dublin"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Christy is Absolutely Fabulous! 18 July 2000
By "austinangela" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Christy Moore's "Live from Dublin" brings back a flood of memories for my husband and me. We were picked up at the Dublin airport on our honeymoon by a taxi driver who had Christy's CD playing in his car. He begged forgiveness for some of the "crude" language in it (which is nothing big here in the states) that has to do with a lot of Irish politics. We bought it in Dublin because we weren't sure we could find it (leave it to Amazon!) and had to have it. This mix of the audience's participation in clapping and Christy's fantastic, broguey voice is perfect. On some of the tracks you need to turn the volume up to hear exactly what Christy is saying/ singing, but it is hilarious, romantic, and it makes you want to get up and do a jig! The songs are all completely different. I can hear it in my head days after I've played it and I still want to hear it again! I have several of Christy's CD's, and this one, by far, is the best mix of his music. Buy it! You'll enjoy it and wear it out.

Christy Moore is always great to listen to, good and straightforward Irish music that stirs the soul. Price was good, shipping was quick and well packed.
