I own this record as vinyl too and never liked it. OTOH it's one of my
few vinyls that already have a bar code. And the 'Rory Gallagher'
original is from 1971, my one shows (C) 1971, (P) 1979 and a patch
'Digital Metal Dmm Mastering', so it likely was remastered and IMO with
a remaster usually nothing good comes. I guess I bought it in the 80s,
so remastered doesn't mean 'loudness war', but perhaps something that is
similar bad. However, I haven't listen to it since years, perhaps
decades. Maybe I'll listen to it today or at least in January. I places
the record beside the turntable. It might be that I like it nowadays.

However, 'Irish Tour '74' is one of the best rock recordings ever. It's
not only accepted and liked by people who make rock music, but it's
also a favourite of many jazz musicians. It quasi is a "masterclass"
recording, not simply another rock recording.
