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 Gallagher at his best. 19 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
His first, solo (post-Taste), I believe, and among the best. Gallagher comes across as your classic 'travelling bluesman'. He's got some stories to tell, and all he wants is a place to kip and a few shots of Paddy irish 'scotch' of whatever he used to drink (absolutely anything I suppose). From sleeping down in a laundrette "Its the crazienst place I have ever been " - 'Laundromat', to various meanderings about various women (or the same woman for all I know) he maintains the quality throughout. Like the majority of quality records it doesn't fit into a particular decade or time period. "It sounds like it was recorded yesterday", one could say. Rory plays some nice saxophone on 'Can't Believe...'. The second solo on 'Sinner Boy', a song about being nice to the homeless (I presume) is one of his most classic guitar moments, and thats saying something. Anyone who can play something that really rocks but which does not rely on volume or level of distortion to achieve it is the absolute don. It needs to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Gallagher at his belting best" 4 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a huge Rory fan, this album remains my all time favourite! The sound is somewhat reminiscent of the days of Taste but the album is highly original in terms of writing and solo playing. Gallagher appears totally at ease producing incredible solos and enviably catchy riffs. On each track Gallagher succeeds in extricating different textures and sounds from his guitar work which has great energy and pace, well supported by his fellow musicians. The solos on "The Last Time" and "I fall apart" are really special. I hate to sound like a boring old fart (42) but people who were lucky enough to have seen Taste live or Gallagher in these early days of his career really saw an individual and original talent that is very seldom encountered today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the smile! 2 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
The smile did increase all over my face the first time I heard Rory's first solo release. Over the years since my favourite track has changed depending on my mood. That was the amazing thing with Rory, you start out having a favourite track, then it changes and continues until you arrive back at your original favourite. All tracks are outstanding the lyrics on Just the Smile are brilliant together with the percussian and vocals it is an amazing track. For the Last Time at 6.35 doesn't have a second wasted, why does it have to end so soon I always wanted it to go on and on. Can't Believe It's true takes us off into a sad place and includes one or Rory's rare contributions on Sax, I read one time that he learned to play the sax over a weekend. In all tracks Rory's amazing guitar playing and technique shine through. My favourite track right now is Just the Smile or is it Can't Beleive It's True or is it I Fall Apart I suppose I'll have to listen again and decide. Buy it and enjoy, I did 40 years ago and still love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blinding first solo album 26 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In my humble opinion, Rory's first solo album is a blinder, particularly if you consider how old he was went it came out (23 yrs).It's a mixed bag, ranging from the gritty riffs of 'Laundromat', 'Sinner Boy', and 'For the last time' to the more melancholic acoustic pieces 'Just the Smile','I fall apart'. Already, so early in his recording career, Rory showed what a mature and eclectic songwriter he was,in short a very underrated genius, so sorely missed following his tragic and premature death. This album may not necessarily cater for Rory's more rock-orientated fanbase, but this is a worthy inclusion to anyone's CD collection. The bonus tracks 'Gypsy Woman' and 'It takes time' has Rory tipping his cap to his blues heroes Muddy Waters and Otis Rush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start here.... 14 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this album on its release, I was at school and Rory had already established himself as a favourite through Taste:On The Boards/Live At The Isle Of Wight.His first solo release was much more controlled, and slightly subdued....but...I've only recently bought this,'s brilliant. Great tunes, played with so much feeling. Buy it and enjoy Rory's finest studio moment.

If,like me,you were disappointed that Taste didn't make enough albums, buy this.
Classic Rory/Taste that doesn't sound dated at all.

Early Rory, before many of his more popular solo albums, and a little raw and less polished than subsequent efforts.
