I wasn't sure I had this until I went looking last night. It made the hairs stand on the back of my neck when i listened to the audience. Leonard certainly looks like he is enjoying it.

Wow thanks so much Albert! Yet another treat for us! I love this so much and while I adore Ruth's video this is very special because of Leonard's expression at the end of the song which you have captured so well. I LOVE it! :D Have you any more hidden gems for us?

Albert, this is awesome. I loved the boisterous loving crowd and LC's response to their love.
It was thrilling to watch.

I just about fell off my chair at 3.24 when he sang:

"And just when I climbed this whole G_D damned mountainside..."

I am not used to seeing this side of him. But, I perked up quickly and had a good laugh.

Thanks again for all your hard work. Loved your overlay titles and auteur imprint.

Thank you, thank you, Albert! What warm and happy memories this brings back of the first of two very memorable nights! I love Leonard's reaction to the audience, and shows just why the Irish hold a special place in his heart! What energy ~ from the stage and the fans. :D

Brilliant Albert.

Thanks, this brought back great memories of the first of two fantastic nights in Sligo.

We were seated mid way back on the Saturday so can tell you that the whole audience all the way back were on their feet singing along to this one. The light rain shower as "we washed our eyelids in the rain" seemed wholly appropriate and only added to the atmosphere.
OK, this seems a bit corny, but you had to be there!

Regards,

Scott

That is one of the best performances of Marianne I've ever seen. Thanks for recording (and finding) it for us Albert.
