The Making of Kickback City


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. This soft spoken Irishman, characterised by his flowing locks and trademark working man stage clothes, was far from ordinary. Gallagher was a self taught virtuoso who forged a musical revolution in his native land, shunned the traps of fame and stardom yet ... Read more in Amazon's Rory Gallagher Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 22 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
Every now and then a band or an artiste produces a perfect album. You probably have your own views - Cream's 'Disraeli Gears', The Doors, Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue', John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme' perhaps. Rory Gallagher was a blindingly brilliant bluesman. Almost every album he made was superb. But 'Deuce' has just that little extra something that makes it unforgettable. Buy almost any Rory album and you'll be a fan for life, but if you are going to buy just one - buy 'Deuce'. There have been lots of great guitarists; there still are. I saw Rory just twice and I don't think I know enough about guitar to say that he was the best but I never saw anyone else - Clapton, Beck, Zappa, McLauglin - who made it look so easy. And Rory always looked as though he was just playing for the sheer enjoyment of it. Buy 'Deuce' and listen to one of the great musicians at his very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars marvelous 9 Mar 2005
By Koos
Format:Audio CD
Maybe his best studio recording and one of the finest and excellent bluesrock records around.
Liner notes give a small impression:
- "... Rory was keen 'Deuce' would capture the raw energy of a live performance."
- A quote by Johny Marr: "There was one day when I was playing along with the 'Deuce' album which was a complete turning point for me as a guitar player".
Although the album was recorded in 1971, 'Deuce' still sounds fresh and up to date. As listener, you can hear and feel that the record was made under very positive vibrations. Rory sings and plays his clear bluesrock on 'Deuce' with passion, and that's what we wanted to hear. 'Deuce' contains superb various acoustic, electric and slide guitar playing.
The record contains 10 different kinds of bluesrock songs, no track sounds the same or as a copy of an other track on the record. Two acoustic songs, one the more traditional and rather heavy blues style 'Don't know where I'm going' and the second 'Out of my mind', the rather lighter and fast, finger picking one. A jazzy-bluesy influenced 'There's a light', an electric Chicago blues style 'Should've learnt my lesson, 'Deuce' is a complete record for different kinds of bluesrock styles. Pure, enthusiastic slide guitar playing needed? Check out the track 'In your town'. Or check out the full sounding superb 'Crest of a wave', a track with a great drive. Opens with fine guitar cords, it is quickly backed by a drum and bass sounds that fill the whole song, therefor it gives Rory the opportunity to show his slide guitar playing in two great slide solo's. Listen to the song's full sound.
'Used to Be', well Mojo, issue nr. 59 wrote the following words about this song: "Punchy poprocker with terrific hook, "Better get used to being my used to be..." Had is been a single, it would have been as ubiquitous as All Right Now." I do not need to say more.
'Deuce' an enthusiastic, fresh and excellent bluesrock album

Rory strips his sound down to the bare essentials, on this, his second album. This reveals his amazing technique, both vocally and on guitar, to be the real thing - developing since his debut album and formative years in Taste. Drawing on wide ranging influences from blues, country, celtic, jazz, folk, rock, 'Deuce' is adventurous in its scope but always under control. Gallagher is creating a sound that is all his own and 'Deuce' is a warning to all other artists that the bar has just been raised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic - Rory at his best 21 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to listen to this, what I consider the best recording Rory ever made. Fantastic tracks of this great Irish Blues/Rock star. I had missed this from my vinyl collection from the 70's, so now can relive the time all over again. Buy this, you will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Rory album ever 29 Oct 2006
By Kitsto
Format:Audio CD
The reviews below are not wrong. This is the finest album the great man ever made (followed closely by his first, "Rory Gallagher"). This isn't to say that the rest are weak, just that this is outstanding. The final track, Crest Of A Wave, is IMHO the finest song Rory ever wrote. There's a fabulous moment just near the end where Rory's slide guitar almost pauses in mid-air for the bass and drums to catch up before racing off into the stratosphere. Sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rory's Best Studio Album 15 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is without doubt Rory Gallaghers best studio work.

from the dreamy "i'm not awake yet", to the storming "crest of a wave" every song on this album encapsulates the best points of rory gallaghers refined guitar work. theres excellent slide work, acoustic strummings, soaring lead play, and rorys passionate vocals.

for an artist who preferred to be playing live, this is an excellent studio effort, and possibly his best album alongside "rory Gallagher" and "live in Europe"

it is also a great starting point for those who are not familiar with the G-Man.

Buy it- But it Now emo boy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Clapton - Rory Gallagher is God! 14 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
What can I say, except that I wholeheartedly agree with all the other reviewers! His other work is simply outstanding, but this is on another level entirely - I can't give it more than 5 stars - but I would if I could!

You may like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and the others - but even some of them know Rory was 'The Man'!

My favourite is Whole Lot of People. The slide work on this song really does 'sing' like I've never heard since!
