Product Description

After an absence of some years from playing in his native city, Rory returns to perform for the first time at Cork's Opera House. Such was the occasion that Irish Television (RTE) had its cameras there to capture the homecoming. This DVD contains the concert originally released on VHS as "Messin' With The Kid - Live At The Cork Opera House", but now with superior audio. To compliment this landmark performance, a unique and highly personal "Rough Guide To Rory's Cork" has been compiled, showing locations, memorabilia and rare & unseen photographs - all supplemented with anecdotes. Plus, there's the "Big Guns" short documentary, a comprehensive discography and much more. TRACK LISTING 1. Continental Op 2. Tattoo'd Lady 3. Don't Start Me Talkin' 4. I Ain't No Saint 5.

This was an excellent concert. The musicians were all very good and material was great. If you are a fan of the Blues, then you should have this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rory Rocks ♫ ♥ Dec 12 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once you hear Rory's roar.. there is no turning back... his blues light the night.
This one was not the one I thought it was, I thought it was the 1974 concert.. but
the best thing Rory had was this amazing ability to not play any song the same
so every time you saw him it was a true experience. My only wish
is that I was aware of him back when he came through my town .

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat Aug. 12 2005
By Storywriter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This is exactly how a concert video should be. There's no annoying camera tricks or post-production effects that have ruined so many other releases, (Yes' Keys To Ascension DVD is one that springs to mind!!). The filming puts you on stage with the band, and there's plenty of close ups highlighting Rory and his amazing guitar playing. The band supports Rory brilliantly throughout a selection of his old and new material. One of the highlights for me, is the wonderful solo acoustic version of `Out On The Western Plain'. I highly recommend this video, and really hope it gets released on DVD one day .

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in his home town May 24 2009
By Colin Logue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's hard not to take notice of Rory's fight with his health on this video as he is quite evidently not a well man at this stage, however it should be remembered that Cork was often the final venue of an extensive tour when Rory would wind down and spend some time back in his home town.

He plays with all the panache one would expect and his home crowd are appreciative if a little subued, fans weren't getting any younger either. All the favourites are here with an especially great version of 'Tattoo'd Lady' and the solo 'Out on the Western Plain'. Mark Feltham looked a little distracted at times but Gerry McAvoy worked feverishly to get the audience going. The band have always been tight and sensitive to the fact that it's Rory they've paid to see. That is not meant to devalue them or their sensational playing.

If you don't own a video/DVD of Rory in concert then perhaps check out Irish Tour first or Montreux, both are excellent. Live in Cork can be difficult when one is fully aware that Rory would not be with us long after this recording and at times he does look uncomfortable but, as always, the music is top notch and Rory delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show! Oct. 28 2009

Rory comes out ripping for his hometown, and this video catches it all. The interactive menus are good as well. This DVD is just more evidence of the talent that the world lost when he passed. Thanks to Donal Gallagher for keeping the footage coming! For those of us too young to see Rory before he passed, this is another Gem!
