Biography

In the years that have passed since Rory Gallagher’s death, aged 47 on June 14 1995, his true stature has become ever more clear.

Format: Audio CD
It was 17th December 1974 at the now demolished and sadly missed Capitol Theatre in Cardiff where I attended my second ever rock concert (my first was Genesis which was great but a much more restrained affair). And what an absolute blinder it was with Rory Gallagher one of the most consummate and charismatic showman on the circuit pulling out all the stops in theatre that was so hot by the end it felt like a Florida swamp . With his beat up old Sunburst Fender Stratocaster he was a guitar player of such staggering ability that seasoned old bluesmen would watch in shock and awe. In the seventies this unassuming Irishman spent so much time on the Old Grey Whistle Test that he ought to have paid council tax to the BBC. Indeed in those days before video I recorded his 1976 OGWT special on a cassette with a cheap microphone taped to the television speaker which also captured a cat fight outside! It was worth it for the joyful Leadbelly cover "Out on the Western plain" and a blistering performance of "All round man" in a magical live TV concert recorded on Rory Gallagher's 28th birthday.

Gallagher was one of the most prolific touring artists and his great live albums of this era especially the "Irish Tour 1974" are peerless (his insistence on touring throughout Ireland during "the Troubles" was a mark of the man). He was also constantly in demand from television across the US and Europe and thus we have the Beat Club Sessions. These are previously unreleased live recordings made for the German TV series of the same name and recorded over three different appearances in the early seventies.

The material concentrates on his debut and sophomore albums which in turn were the primary sources for his live shows throughout his career.

This is a welcome addition to Rory's official releases , these live in the studio performances are from Rory's early solo career, post-Taste . As such some of the bluesier and gentler side of Rory's art appears alongside his fiery rock songs. His slide playing is tremendous. This CD is a companion to the brilliant DVD release which shows the performances. Rory Gallagher - Ghost Blues [DVD]

Format: Audio CD
The late lamented Rory Gallagher will always be my guitar/blues/rock/musical hero, and this CD shows him at his very best just after he released the eponymous album in 1971. He plays some very well known tracks with his own inimitable virtuosity, and every track is memorable. This CD is a "must" for all Rory fans, and for those who are just keen to know why he was the very best!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD has some really great music with fantastic playing by Rory. The songs were recorded in 1971 and 1972 for the German Radio in Bremen. These are so-called "live in the studio" recordings. The quality of the recordings themselves is quite good, there are no complaints there. Unfortunately, like it is a sad trend with many modern CD's, this CD also has been made unnecessarily loud during the mastering process, which sacrifices the dynamic range of the original recordings. It is not the worst offender of so-called brickwall limiting, but it takes a little bit of enjoyment away from these wonderful recordings. When everything is loud, you have to reduce the overall listening level, because it is quite fatigueing to the ears.

Still, overall this is a must have CD for any serious Rory Gallagher fan. I just wish it would have been mastered with some more of the original dynamic range intact.

I have all Rory's CDs and this was my latest addition.
These songs are mostly available on his first 2 solo CDs.
The 'live' versions of these songs however are even more spectacular and really show Rory's guitar skills.
The version of Sinner Boy is a killer and is far better than the studio version. The Taste Isle Of Wight version is still the best for me but this comes close.
The sound is great and the song selection is very consistent.

I loved this CD and recommend to any guitar blues fan.

Format: Audio CD
This is a more than a welcome addition to Rory's catalogue. As other reviewers have noted all of these tracks are previously available as studio tracks but these versions are blistering! The 3 piece post Taste line-up enables Rory to showcase his guitar skills to their fullest and I can honestly say after just three listenings this is some of the best of Rory's recordings. A must for all Rory fans and a good tool to convert the uninitiated!!

Format: Audio CD
Using the same timeframe as Live in Europe plus, this CD is of a good quality and as usual with Mr G, conveys the sheer enthusiasm he has for playing. Although from different sessions the music plays seamlessly (no doubt helped by lack of intros! - which is the only flaw).
Another one to add to your collection if you are a fan; if not get "Live in Europe" as a starter. It won't be long before you'll want this one as well
