What can I say, just brilliant film, Dashiel Hammet, NOBODY does the hardboiled detective better than Bogart, its the stuff that dreams are made of, they don't make films like this anymore, mores the pity.

I have this as part of a set of 5 albums but wanted the remastered versions as they have sleeve notes and the one I had didn't. Its Rory, its brilliant, I just love everything he did, all his work is timeless and flawless, just wonderful

I had Jinx as part of a set of 5 albums, I wanted the remastered version as it has sleeve notes that the set doesn't have. I just love everything Rory did, he never made a bad song or bad album, everytime I listen I find something new, his work is flawless and timeless

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Evidence, remastered, 11 Nov 2013
A stunning album, I love Middle Name, Ghost Blues contains the line "My blood burns just like toast" where did that come from? Its a jaw slapping line, really knocked my socks off. Its a punchy album, surprising and that's what Rory was able to do, never blah, blah, blah like a lot of artists, he really could surprise not just song by song but within the song too, something sneaked round the corner and smacked me in the eye and I thought "I never saw that one coming" and I mean it in a really good way. There are a lot of mediocre artists about, some have been around for years and some are pretty new, they sell records but they are just into making money, for Rory it was ALWAYS about the music, he felt every emotion when he wrote and performed, if you read between the lines its easy to see this, you have to look as well as listen. He had so much more to give to the world, so many more surprises to give us. Fresh Evidence is as vital as his first album but has the maturity of someone who has been on the road and performing to an audience a lot. I hadn't heard of Rory till Easter 2012, I can't praise him highly enough, if you like blues and rock and being surprised with your music then do what I did and buy everything he recorded, you won't be disappointed, I can't get enough of him. Buy Fresh Evidence, buy more Rory, crank up the volume and lose yourself in his music.

I haven't played this yet but I know it will be brilliant, I know I won't be disappointed, its Rory "The G Man" doing what he did best and so brilliantly, hopefully the rest of the sessions will be able to be remastered and released, I will buy one if this happens, I have everything else he did and listen to it daily.

This one is coming along to the end of Rory's life, different kind of style to his early work, just as punchy and earthy as his earlier work, the more I listen to his work the more I find, he wasn't one thing or the other, he had many sides to his character and work and he wrote as he felt at the time. He felt the emotion of the music, not everyone can do that but he managed it very well. Rory is the man as far as I am concerned, will never be bettered. My opinion, he is the finest guitarist who ever lived, certainly multi talented on a huge range of instruments and self taught, magic.
