Rory Gallagher Irish Tour ’74

The concert scenes are a great reminder of what powerful a performer Gallagher was; nobody works up a sweat like he does as he gives himself over body and soul to the sounds he can squeeze out of his beat-up electric guitar. It’s the archival interview footage in the film that is the real treasure here. The way there are scattered throughout the concert footage instead of just gathered into a single documentary is a bit frustrating, but the effort is worth it as you get to know a bit about the man who rocked Ireland — and the world — with a passion that few musicians have ever matched.
