- One / Take FIve
- Mr Tang
- Capitan Casanova
For this special Record Store Day release the album was specially remastered for vinyl from the original source recording by Ray Staff at Air Studios.
Writing in the Guardian at the time of the original album release, journalist John Walters wrote, “Rodrigo y Gabriela’s Live Manchester and Dublin could justifiably claim “traces of heavy metal”. Their Mexican-Flamenco guitar duo repertoire includes a cover of Metallica’s One that moves into Paul Desmond’s Take Five, with a snatch of the White Stripes. There’s a wild streak to these recordings I’ve not heard in previous performances by Rodrigo y Gabriela, and it’s very welcome. This is a World Music album that swings.”
