Special guest Mick Fleetwood plays drums for three songs, including "Dreams," "Haste to the Wedding," and "Toss the Feathers." Written by

Nicely performed live concert by the talented Irish Corrs group, recorded on St. Patrick's Day 1998 (Caroline Corr's 25th birthday), at the famed Royal Albert Hall. Good song selection from their then two recorded releases. Musicianship is tight and skilled by the Corr siblings and two back-up members. Many shots of youngest sister and lead vocalist, Andrea, who's beautiful voice and looks are enough alone to hold a viewer's attention. Oldest sister, Sharon, also sees a lot of the camera with her fine violin playing and attractive features. The girls' older brother, Jim, plays keyboards plus guitar and seems content with his sisters as the main attraction. A few flaws, however, do exist in the program. Guest Mick Fleetwood's presence could be done without on three songs, including the bands cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams". If there is a worst part of the whole, it is that the drums are under-amplified. While at the time of this recording, Caroline Corr had only been playing the instrument for seven years. In that short span, she had become quite a competent musician, and downright hits like a ton of bricks. Stories of her often having to replace drum skins and breaking cymbals are surely accurate. This is quite an accomplishment for such a petite young lady. As much a pleasure to the eyes as her sisters, a bit more time in the camera's eyes for Caroline would be in order as well. Overall, though, this is a DVD deserving of a spot in the collection of any Corrs fan.
