Recorded at London's Shaftesbury Theatre, this cassette features the year's best selling single "Come on Eileen" plus "Jackie Wilson Said (I'm In Heaven When You Smile)" "The Celtic Soul Brothers" and a host of great sounds.

One of Europe's hottest groups, Dexys Midnight Runners, founded and headed by Kevin Rowland, has defied the prevailing musical trends and, clad in overalls and bandanas, bring a mix of fiddles, banjos, violins and brass which together make their unique country music. Calling themselves the Celtic Soul Brothers, Kevin Rowland has lead Dexys Midnight Runners from their country music roots to their soulful rhythms and their dynamic acoustical blending of brass and strings. Their second album, "Too-Rye-Ay" includes their smash hit "Come On Eileen" and the Aretha Franklin favorite "Respect." This LaserDisc features all the songs and concert footage from their October 10, 1982 performance at the Shaftesbury Theatre in England.
