Now in their 14th year the Dropkick Murphys have risen from their basic Irish-punk roots to become a rocking & rolling, raging, green-clover machine. Dropkick Murphys are now one of the best-known rock bands in the world, thanks in part to their ability to tap into the working-class and sports fan culture that permeates Boston and the New England area but even more so due to their ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Live album! May 11, 2003
By Stretch
Format:Audio CD
My brother bought this album on Vinyl in October, and I've borrowed it twice for 3 month spans, I've regretted returning it each time.
He actually was there when this album was recorded, he said the crowd was quite rabid, and it's apparent when listening, they chant and sing many tunes word for word. The band played a diverse set, harnessing all the components of their sound, and what better time to do it than on St. Patrick's Day weekend?
There's plenty of stand-outs, including their rendition of the Irish classic "Wild Rover" with a soaring chorus. "Nutty" (The Boston Bruins theme) has a delightful lick. The underrated bagpipe prowess of Spicy McHaggis is featured prominently.
I detract a star from my rating because there are a few weak moments, most notably durig the sentimental dreck of "Amazing Grace" (Not a bad song, it just seems out of place at a punk rock concert.) And the slow-moving "forever". (On the plus side before the latter is played Ken Casey humorously pretends he's a preacher, inviting a couple onstage and marrying them. He proclaims himself "Reverend Casey" and quickly admits "It's not a popular time to be one". Given the Catholic Priesthood scandal that jilted the Boston area.
"Live on St. Patricks day" is irresistable. Order a copy today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great show and a great CD August 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Dropkick Murphys concert on St. Patricks Day was absolutely nuts. It was probably one of the top 3 shows I've ever seen. Every song they did was great and the crowd was extreme for the whole show. Hearing these songs again is incredible and makes me remember one of the best shows I've ever seen. The CD has every song that I can remember from the show. Songs like Barroom Hero and Upstarts and Broken Hearts are absolutely classic. If you only one live CD, get this one.

It is obvious that The Dropkick Murphys are energized by their fans and this set of hard pounding numbers are sure to enthrall those same fans, but unless you are very familiar with this band, I wouldn't suggest this one. The vocals are buried under the mix and while the energy is great, it can wear you out after awhile without the live environment to reenergize you. A true fan should love this, a more casual listener like myself appreciates the power of the live band, but will probably only give this the occasional spin.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Boston November 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm envious of Bostonites every St. Patty's Day (for a couple reasons) but most certainly because the Murphs throw a 3 day party (not just a concert, a PARTY, as author Dennis Lehane says in the liner notes) for the city. These guys embrace their fans and their fans embrace them and it's just one slambang three day celebration with punk, hicks, micks, and brews pouring. In fact, on this album is a recording of a wedding engagement that occured onstage at the show. Great stuff man!
After the bagpipes, the Murphs launce into "For Boston" a track declaring comraderie with their fans, and then "Boys on the Dock", just one of many of the Murph's worker anthems.
As the party flies with amped up killer cuts from albums past and present like "Which Side Are You On?", "John Law", "A Few Good Men" (Stand up and be counted, sing a song for liberty...!) ,and of course two ultimate rockers "The Gauntlet" (download this song now!) and "Barroom Hero" I just found myself wishing I was there. I've seen this band 3 times but never on their own turf on their own holiday and in front of their family. What an awesome way to start the Spring!
Finally, the show wraps up with "Skinhead on the MBTA" (Metro Boston Transit Authority" - right, you Bostonites?? Is that what that stands for?") aka "Bloody Pig Pile" and as the liner notes state "the mob swarmed onboard". I gotta get there some year............
I don't like the Red Sox cause they beat my Cards but I love this band and you would too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, it's good. September 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was at the Murphys' March 16 show, and while this CD doesn't quite compare to seeing them live, it does make a nice souvenir. At 26 tracks, it's very inclusive, so you get to hear a nice mix of this band's unusually eclectic (at least for a punk band) catalog. At any rate, it's obvious that the Murphys put a lot of passion and energy into their songs, and getting to hear it live and raw is quite a treat. Al Barr and Ken Casey make an excellent vocal tag-team, and Matt Kelly's machine-like drumming brings a precision and variety more often seen in metal than in punk. Although hard and fast is definitely a recurring theme in the Murphys' music, they also do a good job of slowing it down with melodic, heartfelt numbers like the melancholy "The Torch" and the uplifting "Forever," which is one of the few love ballads that don't make my stomach turn. And I must say, I'm very pleased that they included their cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son," as the way they annihilate that classic song is just great. If you like the Murphys at all, this disc is essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Party Everytime September 24, 2002
By JRawk
Format:Audio CD
The band always says that their shows are more parties than concerts and this is what this CD is all about. You can hear the pure energy from the crowd, and as said before not as good as actually being there, but it comes pretty close. The St. Patrick's Day show was awesome, therefore the CD is awesome. And in 2003, the DVD will be awesome. Don't be afraid to buy this CD, it is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dennis Lehane was right, theyre great on St. Paddy's day.
