Santa at last gave me this DVD, although the Santa looked not unlike me. As with Rory Gallagher Live at the Rock Palast (see my review), this collection of elctrifying performances once again sets the standard that others should aspire to, although many of them clearly do not even try.

Those of you familiar with Rory know the score. The first concerts contain the ultimate Rory line-up of Gerry McAvoy, Lou Martin and Rod De'Ath, the latter being surely among the few top rock drummers ever. The first three concerts, from '75, '77 and '79 are really exciting and brilliant, with Laundromat from the 75 concert being one of the best live performances I have ever seen. As most of you know, Rory didn't like pedals or effects at all, so one has many opportunities to see how he uses the tone and volume controls on the guitar with his right hand to produce the sounds he wants, plus a whole variety of "pick" harmonics and use of amp/guitar.

I cannot single out any particular track becuse they are all exceptional, and perhaps Rory's exuberant rendition of his hero Muddy Waters' Garbage Man sums up the band and the man: Rory adored urban and country blues and always considered that the proponents, Muddy, Blind Boy Fuller, BB King, Freddie King and so on were in a different league. Not so. Rory brought back the exciting blast of music that was made to be danced to and to be celebrated that somehow got lost in many of the po-faced purist interpreters. We should remember that Robert Johnson, for example, played for dances and weddings and in juke joints, not in a sterile "I got de blooze" atmosphere.

I have to say that the last full concert shows a Rory that saddens me.

This DVD is as good as it can get without rolling the clock back and actually being there at a live Gallagher gig. That said, I have to say that for me the early stuff from the three seventies concerts is the best since that's how I remember the man in his prime. He also looks, sounds, and performs like the possessed dynamo he was, spitting out the blues and leading his band like a true pro - just study the version of "Laundromat" from 1977 and the incredible "I Take What I Want" from 1977 and you'll see and hear what I mean.Apart from the brilliant playing, his body language and general movement on stage reveal the exlosive electricity of a Rory Gallagher concert in those now far-off times and still gives me goose pimples! The later stuff is fine, although the last bit, a year before his death, makes me feel a bit sad on seeing his physical deterioration. The sound quality and the playing are excellent throughout, and the DVD menu is good.

I always wanted to see Rory Gallagher live,but DVD,s like this fulfilled that desire at least some of the way,there,s 5 or 6 concerts from the Montreux jazz festival here, i wanted to see the 1994 gig first because i think Rory just got better and better through the years,"Let,s go to work" says Rory at the start of 'Continental op' a great blues/rock number which sees him expertly pull his slide out of his back pocket for the solo,there,s a new band with him here,a right bunch of characters,a nutty bass player and a keyboard player who looks like he needs some much needed shut eye,i caught him staring at the back of his eyelids on more than one occasion(lovely fella)and the drummers snare drum is completely destroyed after the first couple of numbers, and that beautiful battered strat looking just as battered as it did twenty years previously, althogh he dons a gorgeous sounding telecaster in 'i could have had religion'(this certainly wakes noddy the keyboard player up)Disc 1 contains gigs from 75 77 79 85,and for 15 pounds sterling you just can,t complain because my earholes were well and truly fried after blasting all this masterful blues and rock guitar played by a an absoloute legend,i love rory as a person as well as a musician,he even goes and talks to someone in the audience whilst he,s playing in the 75 gig!

if you want to see him in his hey day these earlier concerts will show you his stage prowess and energy that i don,t think any other guitar player really comes close to.

Rory, the G-Man who played full of passion ALWAYS. Due to my information this will be a 2CD set selected from his several performances in Montreux. The setlist should be:
DVD 1, 1975: Tattoo'd Lady - Garbage Man - Cradle Rock - Tore Down - Laundromat 1977: I Take What I Want - Calling Card - Secret Agent - Bought And Sold - A Million Miles Away - Do You Read Me - Pistol Slapper Blues 1979: Shin Kicker - The Last Of The Independents - Mississippi Sheiks - Too Much Alcohol - Shadowplay 1985: Bad Penny - Moonchild - Banker's Blues - Philby - Big Guns
DVD 2, 1994: Continental Op - Moonchild - I Wonder Who - The Loop - Tattoo'd Lady - I Could Have Had Religion - Ghost Blues - Out On The Western Plain -Amazing Grace - Walking Blues(he played this one already with The Taste) - Blue Moon Of Kentucky - Off The Handle - Messin' With The Kid - I'm Ready
This is a more than fantastic edition, highest recommendition! I hope they'll release the complete material some day (soon!). Enjoy this fantastic music.
