Editorial Reviews

Out Of Ireland is the story of Irish popular music from 1950 to the present day told by the artists, songwriters, producers and executives who made it all happen. It tells of the dramatic evolution from a grey, conservative culture to a vibrant, colourful music scene which has an enormous popularity and influence completely out of proportion to the size of the country. Originally produced as a six part TV documentary series produced and directed by David Heffernan for RTE, it was broadcast under the title From A Whisper To A Scream.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR THE SERIOUS ROCK FAN AND STUDENT April 9, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Warning, this documentary might be disappointing to the average fan because the performance clips are painfully brief. But if you are more intererested in a deeper knowledge and understanding of Irish rock and it's place in rock..indeed in the full spectrum of Irish music, then this video should be your cup of tea.
The influence of The Beatles as well as such American rock as Chuck Berry is traced along with the influence of traditional Irish music, even that of the legendary operatic tenor, John McCormick. Most important though is the very Irish nature which flavors the music.
All music is interwoven, and the relationship between Irish rock and the dance spectacular, "Riverdance", is brought out.
Performers such as Van Morrison, Clannad (and Enya), The Cranberries, U2, and The Corrs are all highlighted, but performers lesser known or even unknown outside of Ireland are all given their due, and the credit they deserve.
If you want a comprehensive overview of Irish rock, and are NOT looking for the entertainment value of long performance clips, then this video is definitely for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one is EASY! June 20, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are thinking about making this purchase...DO IT! You will not be disappointed. This is not a film about U2 although they are prominently featured. This is an outstanding documentary covering all facets of Irish music culminating with the status of Irish Rock circa 2000. Fantastic interviews with a reflective Van Morrison, still intense still burning Bob Geldolf, and a suprizingly humble Bono, along with several pilars of Irish music. I've learned so much about the music I love and discovered more wonderful artists to explore. I'm embarrassed to say that I had no idea who Rory Gallagher was (his name has every right to be mentioned in the same breath with Page, Hendrix, and Clapton...Guitar God? Hell Yeah!) until viewing this DVD. Now I can't get enough of his music. Thanks to for making so much of his catalogue as well as the other artists available. I haven't explored any special features on the DVD and don't even know if they exist at the time I'm writting this...but...who cares! This disc ROCKS! The sound and picture quality are there. Everyone I've shown this to are just stunned by what they are seeing and hearing. The only complaint is that the music clips are too short but again, it's a great way to learn more about not just Irish rock, but Rock and Roll period.
To sum it all up...crack a cold one, pop the disc in, kick back, and ENJOY!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR THE SERIOUS ROCK FAN AND STUDENT April 9, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One caution...the average rock fan probably would be dissatisfied with this DVD because the music clips, though numerous, are so brief.
But for the person looking for more depth and understanding, this documentary is tops. The very roots of Irish Rock & Roll are explored, including the influence of The Beatles and of Chuck Berry as well as that of traditional Irish music and even the Irish operatic tenor, John McCormick. Foremost of course is the Irish character itself which flavors Irish rock.
Irish rock's place and influence on international rock is spotlighted, as well as the genre's place in the whole spectrum of Irish music.
Performers such as Clannad (and Enya), U2, the Corrs, the Cranberries, Van Morrison are highlighted, but many other notable groups less familiar or unfamiliar to those outside of Ireland are given their dues.
There's even a relationship shown between Irish rock and "Riverdance".
If you are a serious student of rock, and seek understanding of Irish Rock's unique importance, this DVD is indeed for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Invaluable. August 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is probably the most comprehensive documentary on Irish music ever compiled. An invaluable look at the history of "show bands" in Ireland and the emergence of original Irish music and the re-shaping of a National identity through music. Interviews with Van Morrison, U2 Sinaed O'Connor and Bob Geldoff. Makes you very proud to be Irish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent documentary February 14, 2012
This is a very well-produced documentary that more rock fans should be aware of. Ireland may be a fairly tiny island but its affluence on rock is surprising large, especially punk. Bands like Stiff Little Fingers and Boomtown Rats blazed a trail that U2 was quick to follow. Great interviews with a surly Bob Geldof and a candid Bono. Best moment: when Sinead O'Connor insinuates that Bono has been influenced by Irish "show bands," which is a pretty big insult for renegade Irish rock and rollers.
