5.0 out of 5 stars Christy at his Best August 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Christy has several live albums but this one has to be his best. From open to close, this CD does a great job of capturing all the energy of a Christy concert. The recording quality is very good and doesn't allow crowd noise to impinge on the music. It's a good mix of traditional stuff and Christy originals, and with a whopping 14 tracks its bound to please! This CD is a must-have for Christy collectors and would be an excellent choice for a first CD from him.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is what christy moore is all about December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
if you ever had the priviledge of seeing Christy perform live, you will know that his albums don't come better than this. Christy doesn't need a band, he is one all by himself (although you might only see him play the bodhran and the guitar). LATP gives a perfect example of what Christy is all about: the ballads, the humour, the wit, the terror, the story-teller. Highlights: the intro to "Fairytale of New York" and revised versions of "Delirium Tremens" & "The Knock Song".

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Christy Moore CD June 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Live at the Point' is Christy Moore at his best. A wonderful blend of traditional Irish songs magnificently performed by this accomplished artist. I usually don't like 'live performances' but this one is an exception. While listening to 'Live at the Point' you actually feel like you are in the audience and enjoying an exceptional performer doing what his does best. It is a uplifting experience and I can (and do)listen to it over and over again. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes traditional Irish music.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need more Cristy Moore albums like this one... August 31, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is a tour of Ireland...Dooneen to Knock to Macroom...County Clare, County Roscommen and Kennedy's Pub. I can picture him with a pint singing songs the common folk live and breath. His brogue reminds me of my father and his music follows me around. This man is not only an artist but a philosopher and poet as well. Buy this album....you'll thank me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christy At His Best! January 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is, hands down, my favorite of Christy Moore's albums. The audience helps to bring out the best of Christy and vice versa. There is a great mix of music on this album. There are traditional pieces like "Black is the Colour" and "Cliffs of Dooneen", Christy's own hilarious "Delirium Tremens", "Knock" and "Joxer Goes to Stuttgart", his own rendition of "Fairytale of New York" which breathes new life into the old Pogues' song and two of Christy's most famous hits "Nancy Spain" and "Ride On". Yet that is just half of the album! This is a 'must have' for any Christy fan. You'll enjoy the songs and stories with their Irish references and colloquialisms whether you are from Ireland, been exposed to the culture or are just getting acquainted.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHRISTY AT HIS UTMOST BEST! February 18, 2005
By S.K.
Format:Audio CD
Christy Moore is such a fine musician and he really does shine live. If you don't get a chance to see him live, then this CD can illustrate how great he is live. If on the other hand you have seen him live, then you WILL want this CD. No doubt about that! His rapport with the audience is in itself a joy to behold. A splendid live CD. But then, it's hard to fault Christy Moore. Highly and unequivocally recommended to all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD June 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Christy Moore's best CD performances. It was done before a live audience in Dublin and the excitement of the live performance shows throughout the CD. One of his best alltime performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christy at his best! September 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Christy Moore--any of his music is always a good safe buy! I didn't know what songs were on the CD before I bought it but I knew Christy Moore from when I lived in the UK---so I knew it was going to be a good choice regardless!! If you like great Irish folk music and you want to laugh and cry and sing and be in love--BUY THIS!
