Many thanks for your info Freddy. One link led me to hear some snippets of the album and now I should probably go through my CD collection and look for the earlier versions if they exist and have a listen there. I might have to visit my Irish musician friend and have a listen to the album over there before committing my own $$

I don't necessarily mind repeats of old material Megan if they are done well or differently in some way or another. Moving Hearts and their 2007 Dublin reunion album (sadly minus Christy) or Van Morrison Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl 2009 might be a couple of good examples here.

Anyway thanks all for the info and your thoughts.

Cheers,

Andrez

I can't weigh-in on his concert persona, since I haven't had the opportunity to see him in person. But since it seems like you're all in agreement (with the notable exception of GuestDK) that he is not precious, and this thread has turned into a love-in for the man, I wanted to add two words:

Me too.

I think he is a fantastic artist, great interpretator of songs and a decent songwriter himself. He is perhaps my favorite artist and without a doubt my single biggest influence. I probably wouldn't have picked up a guitar and started singing myself if not for his music. (I'll leave it to those who know me to decide if that's a good thing or not.)

Unfortunately, within the last week, I discovered that I've lost a cassette I had of a live performance he did for Claire FM back in the 90s. It seemed to be a warm-up to "Live at the Point" so now I'm going to spend money I don't have to buy that CD given the recommendations from Steve Shaw, Big Mick, et.al.

Thanks, gang, thanks a lot. :-)

yes he is precious and beyond the criticism of tasteless dorks ( critics are usually failed artists) nothing for me matches the RIDE ON album but more acknowledgement ought to have been given to the poetry of Bobby Sands on whose a lot of the lyrics rely heavily, The politics of this will no doubt light a fuse or two somewhere but britain has quite a lot to be ashamed of in its dealings with Ireland ___ I'm not Irish by the way !

He's a LOT precious . He's been performing for many many years and he knows what he's doing for the best, not only for himself in order to give the best performance , but to protect the audience, and make sure they get what they paid for , and NOT have the occasion spoilt by a hard core of so-called fans, who can be noisy (generally after imbibing too much ) and use his gig ,(and other Irish performers)an excuse for a gathering of the Irish "Clan"/hangers on , and a good piss up.
Christy puts first things first i.e. YOU the audience , so admire him for it and stop these snidey references.
There are performers who maybe deserve criticism for their inability or unwillingness to interact with the audience - Christy ,is certainly not one of them.

Cheers ,
Betsy

At Celtic Connections last week, at the Festival club, Michelle Shocked asked members of the audience to come up and jam with her on stage. There was a lemming-like rush, including a backward one by myself as my button accordion was located half a mile away down the corridor in another room. By the time i got back with said instrument the stage was full of lemmings wi' moothies! (harmonicas)

At a recent concert in Glasgow, Scotland, the lead singer of the band U2, Bono, asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds.

While having everyone's complete attention, he said into the microphone, 'Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.'

A voice with a broad Scottish accent from the front of the crowd pierced the quiet:


'Well, foockin stop doin it then, ya evil basturd!'

Sure he's precious ! Most precious treasury of Ireland and yonder plains. A man of words, of responsability towards the songwriters he generously puts under the white light, aware of his immense talent yet not taking it for granted and working every day to polish the gift he was given.
Really throws his heart at the audience each time, gigs can only be described as "magic".

Most of the songs that Christy choses to sing deserve reverence and are well worth just getting lost in. I, for one, do not pay money to hear some gobshite singing out of sync in order to show off the fact that he/she knows a few lyrics. There are times in Christy's gigs when the songs demand a quiet respect and others where jovial participation adds to the atmosphere. A Christy Moore gig is THE most complete performance.

Big Mick

His guitarmanship (is that a word?) may not be top notch but his use of the bodhran, without a beater IIRC,is some of the most sympathetic and skillful use of the instrument I have had the pleasure to witness.

Middle of the Island and Well Below the Valley sung only with his own bodhran (where can I find a fada on my keyboard)accompaniment make the hairs on my arms stand upright.

Sure, there are better singers too - but as you say his interpretation and timing are superb.

He has been off my Iriver far too long.

It's high-time I knew more about this man. Which 3 of his albums should I buy as a good introduction for a Christy Moore beginner?

Live in Dublin 2006: either the double CD or the DVD or both. I'd go with the latter, if you only want one, simply because its possibly the best folk DVD I've ever seen. Musical content is more or less the same, running order is different. Depends if you like to see the show as well as just hear it.

Yep, elfcall. I am not saying that those recommendations are comprehensive in any way. They simply give you a picture of the man at two very different times in his life, and a feel for the force he is. As to one criticism, he is not a stellar musician. But stellar musicians love to play with him. His timing is dead on, and when you combine that with the ability to deliver a lyric with superb interpretation, his quick wit with the audience, and the tales (liberally told) of his experiences, ... well, he is simply one of the best. "Authentic" is a word that is very trendy and overused in the States these days, but applying it to Christy is an absolutely correct use.

On Christy being 'precious' - I have seen him 15-20 times and only once did he request an audience to stop clapping. This was at the RAH and as the acoustics are a bit odd he was getting the clap a 'half beat' behind his own playing and was finding it difficult - he was apologetic.

Best CD - mmm so many - I think I would agree with Big Mick - Prosperous is a must, as is Live at the Point, for my third Ride On or Ordinary Man but that is simply not fair on the other CDs and this does not include anything from the catalogue of Planxty or Moving Hearts.

Funnily enough I have not seen him live in the last few years - does he still use Celestial Soda Pop as his intro music?

Thread drift, but Ruth, you have excellent taste. The Handsome Family are an incredibly good act... great live too, as much for the understated deadpan humour as for the fantastic songs. Rennie Sparks is one of contemporary America's best lyricists. Everyone should make an effort to hear songs like 'Weightless Again' and 'The Giant of Illinois'. Priceless stuff.

Take a peak: Handsome Family

If Christy is now covering their songs, it only goes to show that not only does the man have talent, he also knows how to spot a great song.

I still cannot listen to him say, "Tough shit, Paddy" without breaking out in a horselaugh. Perfect line, perfectly delivered. CAUTION: Once you hear these two, you will be forced to buy every other CD.

In recent years Christy has recorded some Handsome Family songs: Butterfly (So much wine) and Peace in the Valley, the latter which he played on the Cambridge Festival highlights show a couple of years ago.

Their songs are dark, American gothic tales, but Christy gives them a poignancy and warmth. I think Butterfly is one of the best things he's ever recorded.

All too often he comes across (I think) like a fish out of water on his albums. The man live is the thing with Christy. If you want some of his albums I would go for the early ones such as "Spirit of Freedom" and "Ride On." I love "The Iron Behind The Velvet" too though it's much more of a Christy-with-guests type album. There's plenty of good humour and wit afoot on it.   The early (though short-measure) "Live in Dublin" is a cracker too. "Live at The Point" gives a far better idea of the real man than most of his studio offerings (in my opinion of course!) And everyone should have "Prosperous," the album for which the word "seminal" was invented and which spurred the lads on to forming Planxty. As far as his live shows go you won't find a better chap or chappess anywhere.

DK, do NOT repeat casual grapevine gossip of that nature unless you can prove your sources (signing your name might be a start). That characteristic doesn't sound like him, and it tells us a lot more about you than it does about Christy. It just comes across as the bitching of someone with an agenda - a jealous also-ran, perhaps?

Music for Brits & Yanks? Undoubtedly. But you forgot one group: the Irish. He's universally popular here, and not just for his singing.

Riverman, I'd start with 'The Time Has Come'... and any of the Planxty albums he featured on, but particularly 'The Well Below the Valley'. Apart from the rather schmaltzy song about John Lennon, I'd recommend 'Ride On', too. Haven't heard any of his recent stuff apart from the inspired Morrissey cover.

Very rude Guest "DK", meanwhile, apears to have arseholes for earholes...
