irish_tour

Sony always seem to hit the spot when it comes to quality packaging for a reasonable price and this Rory Gallagher Irish Tour ’74 40th anniversary deluxe box appears to be no exception.

The expansive 7CD+DVD set is available for between £30-35 and comes packaged in a eight-panel ten-inch wallet and includes a booklet with extensive liner notes. Everything slots in to an outer slipcase

There is an enormous amount of previously unreleased material in this set and for the first time all three shows are issued on CD. The bonus DVD (NTSC, region free) features the Tony Palmer directed documentary Irish Tour ’74.

This set is released on 20 October 2014 and comes packaged in a ten-inch box and is now widely available from your online shop of choice as well as the Rory Gallagher official store (where it was previously exclusive).

    Got it on Amazon UK for £27.99 last week so very happy with that low price. As you say Paul, a very well presented and affordable package.

  2. Buddy says:

    Any word if it will be made available in the US via Amazon? The shipping from the “Official Store” is an additional $15.

  3. Fatoldbloke says:

    My box is on it’s way. Sadly 4 of the CDs are MONO board tapes that apparently don’t sound all that great.
    Oh well I’m sure it’s ok.
