Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
Year 1979, controversial year, the end of the golden decade of the seventies (musically speaking). It’s not only because I say it, but surprisingly, this is one of Renaissance’s best albums and last.

The A Time and a Place box set brings together a select body of live performances by Emerson, Lake & Palmer captured before worldwide audiences during the band's career and tenure at the sharp end of the Progressive rock genre.

Irish Tour '74 is the sixth album by Rory Gallagher, compiled from live recordings made at concerts on an Irish Tour in January 1974 at Belfast Ulster Hall, Dublin Carlton Cinema and Cork City Hall. "Back on My Stompin' Ground (After Hours)" was taken from a jam session during the tour on the Lane Mobile Unit. Irish Tour '74 has sold in excess of two million copies worldwide. An article in a Belfast daily newspaper stated: "Rory Gallagher never forgot Northern Ireland, he returned throughout the '70s when few other artists of his calibre dared come near the place."
