Barrys latest release - the CD & DVD collection called "Troubadour" is available now! It's taken us a while to get to this point but we made it. Congratulations to everyone involved; it looks great and sounds great. We're confident you will enjoy listening to it (the CD) and watching it (the DVD) for years to come. Please go to the music page for further info
Our intrepid roving reporter, Bep, has provided us with another live video clip from the Albatross reunion show. The track in question this time is Someone I Used To Know. Unfortunately, it didn't make it onto the "limited edition" CD due to technical difficulties. It was the opening song of the show and as you can hear, the boys were in fine rockin' form right from the start.
We came across this clip recently on YouTube and thought you might enjoy watching it. It's from a show in Holland (Cafe Cambrinus in Horst). It's Danny & Barry playing an acoustic version of the old blues song called "Talkin' Woman", which was written by Lowell Fulsom.
If you're wondering what to buy your loved one this Christmas then perhaps Marcus Connaughton's recent book; "Rory Gallgher - His Life & Times" fits the bill. Further reason to buy it is the inclusion of a great story by Barry about the time he travelled to see Rory play in West Berlin and ended up behind the wall in East Berlin by accident. Obviously he lived to tell the tale, and it's a good one.
We came across another clip on YouTube that we thought you might like to watch/listen to. It's an acoustic version of Barry's self-penned song called "I Wonder". Please click here to view the clip

Robert Kinsler discusses "Wrecking Ball", the latest album by Bruce Springsteen, and TJ Ramirez talks about "Beyond The Tears", which he calls a blues concept album. The discussion concerning "Beyond The Tears" starts around 07.45 and don't be thrown off at first by the conversation about musicians who didn't make it. TJ is not talking about Barry! He obviously feels the album is about a musician who didn't make it (Johnny) and that's what the lead in is all about. It's worth listening to the Bruce segment too and please leave the guys a comment after you've listened because it's a labour of love for them.
