The Blackbox in Galway is a comparatively small venue without muchatmosphere, it is quite simply a black box. BUT add the Saw Doctors and afew thousand fans and it transforms into the biggest Irish Pub Sessionyou've ever experienced.
The set is a compilation of Saw Doctors classic numbers ranging in musicalstyle from Celtic ballad to Rock with a smattering of Ceili, punk andcountry thrown in. What makes the tracks special though is that the lyricsare about real people (like Tommy K and Michael D), real places (you canlook them up on a map or if you're lucky enough even go there) and realemotions. They are carefully crafted, poetic, poignant or punchy asrequired by the story they tell. This isn't plastic Pop manufactured forthe masses these are vignettes of life or people in or from the west ofIreland set to music that fuses several styles together in a unique blendthat simply is The Saw Doctors. If you don't know a single Saw Doctorsnumber you'll still be singing along before the end - it's compulsory!
The Saw Doctors CD's have always been good but the production "rounds off"the tracks and leaves them short of some of the raw edge and pace thatmakes the band so special when you see them live. At last many of theclassic numbers can be seen on DVD being performed with the vitality andaudience feedback and interaction that makes their concerts such anexperience.
The TG4 documentary also gives a good insight into the band, the place andthe obvious respect in which they are held by so many in Galway and beyond- even those that they sing about like "Michael D". They play "unplugged"on Clare Island (with Grainne Uile's castle in the background) and in aTuam pub, proving that it doesn't have to be played loud to be good.

Excellent dvd collection featuring a gig recorded at the Black Box,Galway,the recently shown TG4 documentary and some photos shot by the band.
The gig lets you experince a Saw Docs concert,audience participation,mistakes on stage etc and the documentary gives a great insight into the band and the West of Ireland that they capture in words and music.
The sound and photography is excellent.A good buy.

Saw Doctors gigs have always been a celebration, a communion between band and audience. The first time that I took my wife to see them, she commented that, as much as she'd enjoyed it, she'd felt like she was gatecrashing a private party where everyone knew everyone else.
And let's face it, that kind of atmosphere is always going to be impossible to replicate on a DVD.
But this makes a fair stab at it. Good sound, clear visuals, and the extras make this a decent purchase, especially the guys sitting on the beach playing acoustically. Some of this stuff is a real treat for fans.
But if you've never seen the Docs live, you really need to, because this is only half the picture.
