This live recording represents a specific moment in time for Paul Brady. The CD booklet explains the circumstances very well but what isn't made clear is how much Paul Brady's music changed in the eighties.
Paul Brady had built up his singing and playing to the point where his performance equalled peers like Christy Moore. He had the respect of top players like Andy Irvine, who join him on stage here, to add their sound and fill out Paul's 'solo' gig. The Liberty Tapes are a pinnacle of a very upper-register acoustic performance that incorporates both centuries of traditional Irish music and the singer-songwriter sensibility of the seventies.
But soon after Paul Brady would change his singing voice and career direction entirely. Later albums are more commercial, more America friendly. Brady sangs in an open-throated 'rock' style with electric guitars and 'modern country'-esque arrangements. Some great songs came out of this period, like 'Nobody Knows' and 'Life Is What You Make It', but there was no evolution from 'Welcome Here Kind Stanger' and some fans never forgave him.
Paul Brady now feels much more at home with the intense performances he put in and the Liberty Tapes he thought were lost turned up miraculously. On his collection 'Nobody Knows' keystone songs like 'Lakes Of Pontrachaine' and 'Arthur McBride' were re-recorded (I assume for contractual reasons), but the instrumentation of those recreations exactly matches what you'll find here. Confirming 'The Liberty Tapes' as a pure highpoint for Brady and Irish folk music.

Being fully prepared to be blown away by this live recording celebrating the release of his "Welcome here kind stranger", I was pleased - and yet a tad disappointed. I've cherished my old vinyl copy of "Welcome here.." for years - certainly one of the great Irish folk recordings - so I had no hesitation buying this cd when I found it.
Paul Brady is supported by an impressive lineup of fellow musicians, one after the other introduced as the concert unfolds: Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Paddy Glackin, Matt Molloy and Liam O'Flynn and finally Noel Hill. Practically all tracks of his studio album are featured here and played very well, although one could complain of a lack of multiformity in terms of subject matter - lots of damsels and sailors here! And more importantly - this live recording didn't hit me like I expected it to do. All musicians are great, as you'd expect from such legendary guys, but I find these recordings lacking in emotion - admittedly, a quite intangible notion and likely to be disputed. Nevertheless, if Paul Brady's studio album is a firm favourite of yours, you certainly must not let this live recording pass by.

O and another good reason to get this cd - two photographs of Paul Brady .... smiling!
