Just an Englishman's eye view of what The British & The Irish have contributed to this great dodge we call Music over my listening lifetime.

Just random videos and clips, no order, no specific genres, just a bit of train of thought fun.

I'll keep it going, there's a bloody lot to go at.

Hope you enjoy.

Let's start with the great, great Rory Gallagher...1974 Irish Tour.

If this geezer isn't considered a National Treasure, he'll do until one turns up....

It's that very idea that's got me thinking. The British sound, a bugger to define, but impossible to deny.

After I've posted the first 500 videos, I hope the case for begins to take shape somewhat.

:cool:

Absolutely one of the all time greats but as he was Irish I suspect he might have taken issue at being called British!
