This DVD is of the fantastic 1990 concert which became an award winning Scottish Television programme featuring Runrig live at the Barrowlands in Glasgow. A classic documentary that was hugely instrumental in bringing Runrig to a wider audience in Scotland, the brainchild of Scottish Television Head of Programming Alistair Moffat. When it was first aired in 1990 it attracted a huge and unprecedented viewing audience of one million people. The film was seen at the time as groundbreaking for Gaelic language broadcasting and went on to win the Best Documentary category at the Celtic Television Awards, later that same year.

|Title:||The best money you will ever spend|
|Review:||Lets start as I mean to go on, and indeed as Billy Sloan states in the video, "Runrig are not just a rock band, Runrig are an institution", and by God is this video an institution. This video is one of those you never ever tire of watching, the footage from the Barrowlands (and all the Runrig fans out there will know all about the bouncy floors and the sweat soaked gigs), coupled with great editing and footage from around the Highlands and Islands is a masterpiece. Runrig are on fine form, and as an original Runrig / Donnie fan I would argue on unbeatable form. The music starts on a high and finishes even higher, "The Cutter" is a personal highlight, God we all know the words, go buy this video and remember the days when you bounced along to fantastic songs, liked arms in arm with complete strangers before staggering back to "The Park Bar" on an adrenalin rush so high it would takes days to get your feet down to earth again, God if you could only turn back time. I swear if I ever win the lottery I will go back to the band and Donnie and pay good money for one last Barra's gig for charity. In the interim, go buy this video, trust me you won't be disappointed.|
