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

Rory had some problems dealing with life like a lot of us do.
Tim Henning
If you're debating which Rory Gallagher live experience to purchase, I HIGHLY recommend going with Irish Tour '74 over Live in Europe.

Back in the early '70's my friends and I used to refer to Rory Gallagher as the "King of the Cut-out Bin". A frist rate
guitarist with a great feel for all kinds of blues, soulful singer, and charismatic performer (though without pretense), Gallagher was, for some reason, a non-seller. This album was the first Gallagher cut-out I bought and when the CD was released I didn't flinch at all at paying full price because this is some of the best live blues and rock on earth. After a perfunctory introduction and some enthusiastic applause from what sounds like a small audience, Gallagher rips into the first notes of his cover of Junior Wells' "Messin' With The Kid" and never lets up. His acoustic blues are just as impassioned as his electric rock; his performance of "Pistol Slapper Blues" is actually reminiscent of Blind Boy Fuller's, complete with fine Piedmont style fingerpicking and "Going To My Hometown" features mandolin and audience participation. Bassist Gerry McAvoy and drummer Wilgar Campbell fir perfectly with him. ther challenge and push him without getting in the way. Campbell's fills never intrude on the music, rather they help to fill the background and tend to keep the intensity up. Gallagher's own virtuosity never seems to exist for its own sake; his ego seems totally subsumed in the music. This is the mark of a true musician. The production is competent without being the least bit slick and there are just enough wrong notes to indicate a minimum of overdubbing. This is a great live rock album, doubtless one of the best, and an object lesson for many musicians with great chops and little maturity. Don't miss it.

Of the many inanities on the Rolling Stone list of the 100 greatest guitarists that came out with great fanfare a few years ago, the most absurd is this: Rory Gallagher did not make the list. One can argue about where various guitarists should have been placed, but around 65 of the guitarists on the list truly belonged there. But 90 or 95 of the ones on the list must cringe with embarrassment that they were ranked above Rory Gallagher. There is simply no way that one can listen at any length to Rory play one scintillating solo after another and place him outside the top ten guitarists in the history of rock. Yeah, he was never terribly popular and even now is not especially well known to the public at large, but the fact is that he had utter mastery over his primary instrument. And unlike most guitarists, Gallagher was a multi instrumentalist. It is widely reported that when Mick Taylor left the Rolling Stones, the first choice to replace him was Gallagher. It is easy to see why. He was even more of a blues purist than any of the remaining Stones, was a better slide player than Keith Richards, Brian Jones, or Mick Taylor, would have provided far better back up vocals than anyone ever has for the band, would have brought some of the same multi-instrumental mastery that Brian Jones contributed in the sixties, and just generally would have forced everyone else in the band to get better just to keep up.

A lot of guitarists fake it in the studio. They get the benefit of multiple takes, double tracking, and various sound effects. Live albums show what you can really do, and luckily we have two great live albums from Gallagher, this one and IRISH TOUR. I actually prefer this one, however, because most of the cuts here did not appear on other albums.

Rory Gallagher's "Live in Europe" ranks up there with the greatest live albums in rock music. It's certainly in the same league as The Allman Brothers "Live at the Fillmore", Frampton Comes Alive and The Who "Live at Leeds".

From the first song 'Messin' with the Kid' Rory's guitar comes out swinging. Backed by excellent bass and drums, this power trio delivers rock-n-blues at its best. Another fine highlight is Blind Boy Fuller's 'Pistol Slapper Blues' a Rory Gallagher favorite. Perhaps no song among in this fine collection shows just at what a high level of playing this trio was capable of than 'Bullfrog Blues'.

If you've never heard Rory Gallagher before prepare to be pleasantly surprised. One warning, other Rory Gallagher albums-studio and live- are, in my humble opinion, of equally high quality. You'll want them all.

Highly recommended!

Rory Gallagher was, without a doubt, one of the most underappreciated musicians in the world. "Live in Europe" was an early success for him, showcasing his raw and rocking blues playing. "Messin with The Kid", "Bullfrog Blues", and "Laundromat" occupy sacred space in his canon, making this record a must-own for fan and new recruit alike. Rory's great versatility is on display with "Pistol Slapper Blues" (great ragtime blues) and "Going to My Hometown" (a mandolin stomper). Few of the so-called "Guitar Heroes" would ever show the intesity, honesty, and versatility that Rory does on this record. Don't hesitate, buy this cd and enjoy the great Irish blues master in his natural element, live.
