The album continues with this superb sound apart from the accoustic 'Don't know where l'm Going' and 'Out of My Mind', which are both goergious, and the authentic-blues 'Should've learnt my Lesson' lurrvely!
The orriginal album concludes with 'Crest Of A Wave' which is just outta this world! So much energy here, fantastic tune, and rythmically contagious! TRY NOT MOVING WHEN YOU'VE GOT THIS ON!
But this album has a bonus track, Persuasion, slightly more poppy here, but a superb song with a country tinge to it! My only
complaint is the sleave doesnt say where/when its from.

If you do decide to proceed with the purchase of the 2012 version of Deuce, here is my advice - pick up the Original Album Classics box set before it goes out of print. It contains Deuce, Calling Card, Top Priority, Jinx & Fresh Evidence. It is worth obtaining even for the other 4 albums, but hopefully you will thank me when you compare versions of Deuce.Read more ›
As for the music, well this is well up there, top 5 Rory albums that I have heard to date. He plays like a man on a mission, covering rock, blues, zydeco, acoustic and jazz(ok, jazz influenced) with a rhythm style that is staggering. Rory can throw a solo across a backing that changes the flow of the music without changing the beat, flurries of notes packed into tight clusters at the start of a bar, leaving gaps and then chucking out arpeggiated fills, back to the main theme and off again in a way that proves his complete mastery of the fretboard, all without ever sounding twiddly teegee self loving showoff(like so many others).
This is an album for folks who love guitar playing in the proper sense of the word, emotion, lifting the tune, using a range of skills, knowing when to bend or go with the flow, rather than those who love someone who can pack ten thousand notes into a millisecond with all of the emotional attachment of a three day old cheese sandwich.
At the used and new price it is a steal, get it now before the price goes up.
This latest version of "Deuce" (his second album) is one of six new remasters released to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of his Solo career (list below). So what's different? In a nutshell - cheaper price, upgraded packaging and 2011 mastering from original tapes. Here are the double-bubble finite details...
Released 16 January 2012 in the UK (31 Jan 2012 in the USA) - "Deuce" is on Sony/Capo/Legacy 88691917372 (Barcode 886919173727) and comes in a card digipak rather than a jewel case. The single bonus track "Persuasion" which first appeared on the 1999 CD reissue has disappeared without mention. It sounded to me suspiciously like a much later outtake stuck on the end of that reissue so it would have something previously unreleased on it. There is no mention either in the slightly reworked liner notes as to why it's been dropped.

The gatefold card sleeve repros the colour artwork of the original vinyl album (front and rear) while the booklet is only slightly extended over the previous 1999 foldout inlay (8 pages as opposed to 6).Read more ›
