4.0 out of 5 stars Only Newbies Need Apply August 31, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Another Rory Gallagher collection and four stars simply because the material is so good and is a fair representation of his solo career covering both the acoustic and heavy blues/rock side of Rory.

Long-time fans will not need this collection which will appeal to completists and those curious or unfamiliar with Gallagher's body of work.

All the tracks are staples but the stand-outs include; A Million Miles Away, Crest of a Wave, Moonchild, Tattoo'd Lady, Walk On Hot Coals and They Don't Make Them Like You Anymore.

This is a good collection but there are others out there which best this one. Check out BIG GUNS - THE VERY BEST OF RORY GALLAGHER which IS career spanning as it takes in TASTE and his solo career and packs more punch than this latest offering.

4.0 out of 5 stars I agree with Colin. September 5, 2009
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
I personally own every Rory Gallagher album he ever issued so there's no point in me buying a greatest hits cd. Nevertheless for someone interested in sampling the man and his music I agree with Colin that Big Guns is a better representation of Rory and his genuis. The man was a paradox extraordinaire but he was also one helluva musician. Rock on Rory. We're still listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars RORY'S GREATEST BEST OF CD November 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are many best of cd's of Rory Gallagher,and they are all very good.
But for me this double cd is the best.
And it was a very nice surprise that there is a other version of Overnight bag on this cd.
Different than the original song on the photo finish cd.
This version have's a longer solo on the end.
For people that want to learn to know Rory's music,this cd will be a very good start.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rory from Past January 6, 2014
By John K.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Loved this guy when I was in my twenties and thirties. Found this all inclusive album. I had to have it. I had so many memories of this long, lean, redheaded, Irish guitar slinger! Being an OLD guitar player, I had to have his complete works! After listening to it once, it grew repetitious. Still great Rock and Roll - I seemed to have grown out of it. I listen to it again, soon, and it may bring back the old brilliance it once had for me.

What's Your Favorite Rolling Stones Song?
A very difficult question. I like the period of "Aftermath" through "Goats Head Soup" the best; after that they were less consistent. There are a lot of songs to choose from, like the ones you mentioned and others ("Jigsaw Puzzle", "Mother's Little... Read More
