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.

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.

Rory Gallaghers work sort of exists just under the radar, so to speak. It is always there and loved with a passion by his fans, yet rarely seen mentioned in print these days unless someone is listing of their influences, or favourite guitar players.

This new from the analogue masters reissue series ought to delight the hard core fans as they address and correct some issues, too much reverb, new mixes, new stereo placings that were made during the previous conversion to cd. Donal has got the team to go back to the final Rory mixes and freshly digitise them using the latest equipment in order to produce what could be described as the best sounding cd versions of Rorys small but incredibly potent back catalogue. The new issues also come in a neat cardboard foldover sleeve along with new sleevenotes.

This album runs the gamut from light acoustic tunes through to the rockier side of things. Just the Smile is a track that is worth the price of admission alone.

Superb.

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.

Great stuff. Great mixture & guitar ability that's second only to Jimi Hendrix. Track #3 is the best; great solo & heartbreaking lyrics.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2012 CD REISSUE ***

Under the supervision of Donal Gallagher (his older brother and former tour manager) - Irish guitar hero RORY GALLAGHER had his LP back-catalogue first reissued onto CD between 1998 and 2000. Each of those RCA/Capo releases came in jewel cases and had previously unreleased bonus tracks. The campaign culminated with a tremendous outtakes compilation in 2003 called "Wheels Within Wheels".

This latest version of his debut album is the first of six 'new' remasters released to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of his Solo career. So what's different? In a nutshell - cheaper price, upgraded packaging and 2011 mastering. Here are the finite details...

Released 16 January 2012 in the UK (31 Jan 2012 in the USA) - "Rory Gallagher" is on Sony/Capo/Legacy 88691917352 and comes in a card digipak rather than a jewel case. The two bonus tracks which first appeared on the 1999 CD are here also - two previously unreleased studio outtakes from the sessions - rough and exciting covers of "Gypsy Woman" by Muddy Waters and "It Takes Time" by Otis Rush.

The gatefold card sleeve repros the black and white 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). There are two extra photos of Rory, but disappointingly the Donal Gallagher liner notes are exactly the same as before (bar a few mistakes corrected). Both the picture beneath the see-through tray and on the CD itself is the black and white Mick Rock photo used for the front cover artwork.
