Rory Gallagher 'Live In Cork' DVD Set For St Patrick's Day Release

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Eagle Rock Entertainment is releasing 'Rory Gallagher: Live In Cork,' a DVD that captures the guitar virtuoso in a special concert. The DVD will be released on March 17th.

Live In Cork is a documentation of Gallagher’s homecoming, when he returned to Ireland in 1987 to play the Cork Opera House after several years’ absence. Originally aired on Irish TV, Gallagher shook the house to it's foundations with tracks like 'Tattoo’d Lady', 'Follow Me', 'When My Baby She Left Me', and 'Out On The Western Plain'.

The DVD is more than a mere concert. The live portion (originally released as Messin’ With The Kid – Live At The Cork Opera House on VHS) is only the tip of the iceberg. Live in Cork also allows an in-depth look at Rory and the city that bred him. “Rough Guide To Rory’s Cork” is a compilation of photos, anecdotes, memorabilia, and other footage from his hometown. Clearly, this excavation of the great guitarist’s life and culture is an absolute treasure for a Rory Gallagher fan.

This special set is just the latest Gallagher offering from Eagle Rock. Previous titles include the Live at Montreux CD (July 2006), The Definitive Montreux Collection 2DVD set (May 2006), and the Live at Rockpalast 3DVD set (August 2007).

Tracklisting: 'Continental Op', 'Tattoo’d Lady', 'Don’t Start Me Talkin’', 'I Ain’t No Saint', 'Follow Me', 'When My Baby She Left Me', 'Off The Handle', 'Out On The Western Plain', 'Wanted Blues', 'The Loop', 'Shadow Play', 'Messin’ With The Kid', 'Loanshark Blues'.
