Rory Gallagher Notes From San Francisco EPK

Biography

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 Deuce Sets the Stage for Rory's Great Career August 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Strange that it may sound, I kept my copy of "Deuce" unopened and slotted with my other Rory Gallagher CDs for a year before I could listen. I had last heard "Deuce" on vinyl quite some years ago, and the opening chords of I'm Not Awake ushered me back to my college days and debates with my friends about the merits of Mr. Gallagher's guitar mastery. The energy that flows from this music crackles, whether Mr. Gallagher is playing acoustic blues, coaxing magic from his slide, or wringing out just the right amount of feedback.

The dark, edginess of his first solo release have receded (though I love that CD for other reasons), and "Deuce" pretty much set the stage for how Mr. Gallagher's later catalog of recordings would be structured, intermixing blistering power riffs from tracks such as Crest of a Wave and In Your Town with plaintive blues songs such as Don't Know Where I'm Going and Should've learned my Lesson.

His stalwart sidekicks from the early days, Gerry McAvoy on bass and Wilgnar Campbell on drums, generate the rhythm that sets the course, keeping things down to earth and lively. (Mr. McAvoy played bass with Rory till the end.)

This remastered CD sounds clear and free from the technical problems that have marred some of the others. That clean sound, a fine bonus track called Persuasion, and expanded liner notes are enough to justify replacing older copies of this CD

It seems that many folks tend to disregard Rory Gallagher but anyone who takes the time to listen will appreciate how fine a talent we lost in June 1995.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless December 23, 2004
By Madpoet
Format:Audio CD
This was the final Rory Gallagher album that I bought and I searched high and low for this baby. Unfortunately, it's out of print in the states but was lucky enough to stumble across it while in Ireland. (Ever notice how hardly anything goes out of print in Europe?) Anyway, I definitely got the best Gallagher last because this one smokes. It starts off with the very laid back "I'm not Awake Yet" which features Rory strumming along on acoustic while Gerry and Wilgar hold everything up with a solid rhythm. He then transitions into full on rock mode with "Used to Be", a fantastic piece with a start-stop riff that gets in your head and won't leave. "Don't Know Where I'm Going" is a fun acoustic track. "In Your Town" showcases his substantial slide technique in the form of a rollicking, stomping riff complete with great lyrics and some wonderful vocals. You can just see Rory grinning while singing. (The version of Live in Europe is even better). But the absolute gem of this album is "Crest of a Wave", perhaps the most volatile track Rory ever committed to tape. While Wilgar and Gerry hold down the fort with one of the heaviest, thundrous, most unshakeable blues rhythms I've ever heard (Page, eat your heart out), Rory's slide playing enters the stratosphere and keeps on going to the place where the earth meets the sky. The solos are absoultely insane as Rory makes his Strat scream and shout. The entire song lives and breathes. And the brief studio banter after the ride-out is cool as well. In fact, there's not a bad track on here. Of all his studio work, Deuce is the culmination of everything that was and is Rory Gallagher. If you ever run across this is a used record shop, pick it up and be carried off by this amazing album by one of the greatest musicians ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rory's second solo effort - another gem July 18, 1999
Format:Audio CD
After his eponymous first solo album, which is totally brilliant by the way, Rory and the band went into the studio with a few crates of Guiness and knocked out this album in a week (or so I've been told). It certainly has a slightly rough feel to it though it doesn't capture the excitement of his live performances. Excellent album all the same. Its great to see Amazon making this available - I can at last replace my old vinyl copy. You can't get it in Europe, surprisingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the truly great guitar/rock albums ! November 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If by chance you have stumbled onto this website and have never heard of Rory Gallagher, consider yourself in for a great treat. Listen to the #10 track "Crest of a Wave" and you will hear an awesomely talented musician play possibly the greatest slide-guitar ever recorded ! This track showcases Rory's incredible talent on the guitar... a simple but ingenious riff builds into a kaleidoscope of sounds. Soft round tones turn into a soprano-like singing which become screams, howls and growls which mesmerise the listener. And this is only one of the gems sprinkled on this incredible album. DON'T MISS IT !
