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

Format: Audio CD
I was always going to like Kickback City. I've been a Rory Gallagher fan since I first heard him back in the 70s, I am a comic fan and I love crime fiction. So I was biased from the start. But here is the thing, I had high expectations and they have been completely surpassed.

In all the years of listening to Rory's music I don't think I have every listened that closely to the lyrics. At least not in this way.

When I got the box set the first thing I did was listen to the story whilst flicking through the book. It is just a novella so it lasts less than an hour. I am not a great fan of audio books but the story held my attention not only because Ian Rankin does a good job but also because of the great visuals from Timothy Truman in the book and Aidan Quinn really sells the part. You can have a lot of fun listening for song lyrics and titles as you go through.

But the best for me came from reading the book listening to the "sound track" There was something quite surreal to doing this and I found myself in stages totally immersed in either the story or the music.

As a result I have now spent a number of hours going through all of my old Rory albums really listening to them and paying attention to the lyrics in a way that I never have before. It's like I'm rediscovering him all over again.

This is a fantastic collection. If you are a Rory Gallagher fan you will love this box set. It you are just starting to become aquanted to his music then this is a perfect place to start.

This is an intersting concept set, first you put in a disk of Gallagher favorites, add a second disk of some rare live material and then have a writer create a story based on Rory's characters. Put it into a book and audio form and market the set. Hey, it got me to buy it. Now the breakdown, and it isn't much. The best of disk is a good set based on the characters in the book. The live set is a bit disappointing this is a show from one of Rory's later concerts and it is missing the 3 piece power blues feel. The book and audio CD are both entertaining and a fun listen. Overall a good set, if you are a Rory Gallagher fan it's a must. If you are new to Rory, where you been? This is a good set.

This concept is perfect for Rory's music. I can't help but think he would love it, too. The music is the music- Rory is an under appreciated talent. The way the story is linked up to the music (and the graphic novel) shows that the people involved with this project also love the man and his music. I don't collect graphic novels or audio books and I already own these songs, but this package was too interesting to pass on and I have been greatly rewarded for my purchase.

This set got me into Rory Gallagher; a great musician both guitarist and lyricist. I like both mediums music and graphic novels. The music was on point. The graphic novel was a little too short. It felt like it got wrapped up just to be finished.

really?
Rory really was a fan of this type of thing. Reading mystery novels as he toured. I'm not a big fan of trivial clumping music together to sell - but I like this idea.
While I already have all these recordings, I look forward to purchasing (maybe more for the live stuff - he was always so great...
