Mary Black Live
2003 - TORTE CD 250
This package contains both the "Live at the Olympia" DVD and the "Mary Black Live" CD.
"Still Believing" is a documentary film celebrating the life of Mary Black in music. In it, Mary tells her story and takes us on a journey from the home she was born in on Charlemont street to some of the greatest stages of the world and back again.
The documentary is followed by Mary performing live in Dublin. Filmed on the final night of a week long run at her favourite venue, the Olympia Theatre, these concerts were a sort of homecoming for Mary. The songs featured cover the previous ten years of recordings and more. In Dublin, in front of a hometown audience, the atmosphere is always special.
About the "Mary Black Live" CD, Mary says: "Over the years, many people have asked me to release a live album but I never managed to get around to it. Well in order to tidy up before I hang up my boots, I've included a live CD with this package. Some of the material I've chosen might seem unusual, but I was bearing in mind the recent release of 'The best of Mary Black' and wanted to be different again. Hope it give you some flavour of our live gigs."
