The Saw Doctors will release on blue vinyl, a third pressing of their classic debut album ‘If This Is Rock and Roll,I Want My Old Job Back’ to mark the 30th anniversary of the album's release in 1991. The first two pressings on black vinyl & green vinyl have now sold out.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the vinyl release of ‘If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’, The Saw Doctors have produced a 20 page souvenir booklet to accompany the blue vinyl LP. The booklet will include stories and memories from band members, Davy Carton, Pearse Doherty, John Burke, John Donnelly and Leo Moran on the writing & recording of the album in Loco Studios, Wales and archive photos by Frank Miller from the debut album photo shoot in various Galway locations in March 1991.
‘If This is Rock and Roll…' went straight to Number 1 in the Irish album charts on it’s release, going on to sell over a half a million copies world wide, on the back of a massive number one hit single ‘I Useta Lover’ which stayed at the top of the Irish charts for nine weeks in 1990.

The album cover of the blue vinyl record of ‘If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’ is Frank Miller’s iconic photo of the fathers of the band members of The Saw Doctors, posing as rock stars live on stage in the Warwick Ballroom in Galway.
