This morning a package arrived from Amazon containing a real gem... the new double cd by one of the planet's greatest living Irishmen, Christy Moore. 35 songs, mostly from his extensive back catalogue, performed at The Point in Dublin by Christy with Declan Sinnot, and bloody good it is too. Not so long ago it seemed as if we had lost the man permanently as a consequence of years of alcohol (and other substance) abuse, and it is tremedous to hear him in such terrific form. One of the highlights is the old Moving Hearts classic, Hiroshima Nagasaki Russian Roulette... and the whole lot for less than six pounds fifty via Amazon.... I'm sending off for the dvd tonight!
