When this hit VHS in ’95, it immediately joined my rotation of videos played on the Videoville TV’s – the perfect palate cleanser between Rover Dangerfield and the ’70s version of Gone in 60 Seconds.
Headlined by the furious, flashy feet of Jean Butler and Michael Flatley, it never failed to make people stop in the aisles as Ireland’s mightiest dance crew brought the thunder, and the lightning.
Having seen Riverdance live on stage at the height of its popularity, I can attest it was (and is) truly eye-popping.
The taped version is pretty dang good, too.
