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. 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

Product Description

The brilliant Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher played the Montreux Jazz Festival on five occasions over a twenty year period, having appeared twice prior to that with his group Taste. The two DVDs here gather the crème de la crème from his appearances there between 1975 and 1985, as well as the complete 1994 gig, while the CD features highlights from the first four (1975-85). Together they offer another great opportunity to experience Gallagher in his natural habitat. Rory was rightly famed for the virtuosity of his live performances and this definitive Montreux collection captures him at his very best. Whether playing his trusty Stratocaster, a variety of acoustic guitars or even wielding an electric sitar (as he does with great skill on the blistering Philby from 1985), Rory delivers one compelling performance after another. Throughout his three decades in music, the modest and charismatic Irishman toured relentlessly and always appeared in his element on stage. In fact, he was adamant that his concert recordings best captured the raw energy he exuded, whether covering the Chicago blues classic Messin' With The Kid originally by Junior Wells or the Stax soul standard I Take What I Want a mod favourite by Sam & Dave or performing original compositions like the ebullient Tattoo'd Lady or the barnstorming Laundromat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 28 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a fairly new convert to Rory Gallagher as in the 70's & 80's I did not have much of an appreciation for this style of guitar blues.
Since my conversion I feel that this bloke is a true master and sadly underrated by many.
This man is another example of Live outshining Studio as he feeds off the audience,

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a re-release 30 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
This collection was released several years ago, as a two dvd set and a one cd release. This is a cheap way to own the dvd's and cd in one package, because they are more expensive when you buy them apart. If you already own the 2 dvd set and the cd then there is no reason for buying this. If yóu don't have this one yet or you're new to Rory Gallagher don't hesitate and buy this. It's the G-man in top form.
