The new Saw Doctors DVD is entitled Clare Island to Cape Cod and features a sixty five minute documentary film on The Saw Doctors by Steven Lock.
The documentary includes some amazing live footage of The Saw Doctors concert at The Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, MA, last August. Steve Lock employed nine cameras including two Jib Cameras to capture the full on atmosphere and response of the Bands fans in the 2,000 capacity marquee - The Saw Doctors played on a rotating stage in the middle of the Tent with the audience banked up on all sides around the Band. The stage rotated 360 degrees every ten minutes and the concert footage captures the intimacy and excitement of Davy, Leo and the rest of The Saw Doctors playing to different sections of the crowd over the course of two hours of the show.
Also included in the documentary film are exclusive interviews with Davy Carton, Leo Moran and the rest of The Saw Doctors who look back over the Bands 20 year history - back in 1988, Mike Scott of The Waterboys discovered The Saw Doctors playing in the back bar of The Quays Pub in Galway.
The documentary also includes video footage of The Saw Doctors playing their Number One hit, About You Now, and hilariously evedrops on the Bands party in Galway to celebrate their first Number One in seventeen years.
Leo Moran writes:
The Melody Tent in Hyannis in Cape Cod has been a celebratory venue for The Saw Doctors for a few years now. Every August we park the bus out the back, enjoy the sunshine and the hospitality and play in the spectacularly theatrical enclosure that is The Melody Tent, completely surrounded by banks of exceptionally enthusiastic and charged-up fans and friends. Often we ve said we should film the show for its unique atmosphere and intensity, and every time we forgot until the bus was parking up again, another twelve months and a hundred gigs past.

Top customer reviews
The Saw Doctors have had a few live albums released, different set lists of course. This time around we get great songs like "Macnas Parade," "Galway and Mayo (including Maroon and White)," "Will it Ever Stop Raining," and of course "N17." I liked that they included the ska-ish song "Will It Ever Stop Raining," because it shows the different styles that the band can play. "This Is Me" is a surprising song to see on the CD because out of the 4 times I've seen the band, I don't recall them ever playing that one. The live audio could be better in spots but overall, the sound is impressive. From listening to the album, you can get a sense how great the band is live. The band hasn't recorded anything new lately besides "Bebo" and the Irish chart topper cover of the Sugarbabes' "About You Now." By the way, check out that single for "About You Now" because it's an awesome cover! Very rockin' indeed! But even with those 2 songs, the band resurrects songs fans haven't heard in years. I think that's great because you won't just hear the classics at their shows.
Bottom Line: Great live album that makes you want to go out and see the band right away.
