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

Totally original lead guitar playing and great vocals (somewhat reminiscent of Clapton - the vocals that is).

It's hard to find a place to start with somebody who has put out such an extensive catalog of great works in his short lifetime. But this first album and the one that followed in that same year of 1971 remain my favorites. Gallagher's creative juices were still hot after after just breaking up his band Taste, who were just about to attain international success when they broke up because of management and musical differences within the band. It's good Gallagher broke out on his own, because he's doing here what he does best. And that is laying down some of the best blues rock ever made. I still can't believe this album didn't achieve worldwide success. His guitar solos on songs like "For The Last Time", Sinner Boy", and "I Fall Apart", are the best ever put down on vinyl. It just doesn't get any better than this. I will put Gallagher up against all the heavyweights out there. Hendrix, Peter Green, Stevie Ray, and Jeff Beck. He's that good! Another thing that's always been overlooked is Gallagher's ability's on the acoustic guitar. He plays with more feel for the country blues roots than any of the other blues rockers I've heard even to this day. Just try out "Just The Smile", or "It's you", which has a country sound to it, and features Gallagher on Mandolin, which was an instrument he had only recently mastered. You would never know it. Another great song on here is "I'm not surprised". I am surprised this song never became a single. It features the great keyboardist Vince Crane from Atomic Rooster and Authur Brown fame playing some great Fats Domino style piano. There are just no weak songs on here. And the 2 bonus tracks are even good. He does "Gypsy Woman", which Muddy Waters originally recorded.Read more ›

The late Rory Gallagher could evoke such range of emotions from his guitar (unlike the emotional monotone that pervades too much of the more-heralded Eric Clapton). Rory was about the blues, but his take was vivid, fresh, and powerful. Warning: if you depressed, do not listen to cuts such as "Can't Believe It's True" alone. You may not make it through the night. On the other hand, the muscular "Laundromat" shows just how effectively Rory could transcend the quotidian and take listeners to a place where they could indulge in his sonic revelries and find, if not a measure of solace, a kindred spirit.

I have to admit that the only reason I bought this album was because I had never heard these bonus tracks. They weren't on the original vinyl and were not present on the first pressings of the CD. After hearing them, I'm glad that I bought it. The album is a great clinic in good song writing, and I will always love Rory Gallagher's guitar work. He was great.Though I didn't buy the album through Amazon.com, I still have to give my review of it, so that other people can know about Rory Gallagher--the greatest guitarist on the planet.

Really, any of the late Rory Gallagher's albums are worth the money. This was a guy with talent and soul to burn and unlike Clapton, Beck, Bloomfield, Winter, heck, even Stevie Ray Vaughn, Gallagher never, ever made a bad album. This one's my favorite for simply having served as my first exposure to the man. And what a mix! Everything from flat-out rockers ("Laundromat" and "Hands Up"), acoustic country blues ("Wave Myself Gooodbye")and late-night jazz ("Can't Believe It's True") and points inbetween. Gallagher was especially eloquent on guitar, whether acoustic or electric, but the dude could also wail on the sax and was a very accomplished mandolin player as well. He's backed to the hilt by bassist Gerry McAvoy and drummer Wilgar Campbell, with Atomic Rooster's Vincent Crane joining on the 88s for a couple of songs. The styles may be all over the place, but the passion is always consistantly there and it makes for one great album. Of many.

When i first heard of the late great Rory Gallagher, he had already been dead (R.I.P. Rory).I really did not know what to expect having read about what an amazingly superb guitarist he was (sometimes i get really disappointed after reading great reviews about albums which after i purchase i find to be really dull and a waste of time and money (I am a huge Neil Young fan but his 'On the Beach' album is an example of such a disappointment!)).I popped the 'Rory Gallagher' album on my cd changer in my car and i almost crashed, i found myself shaking my head being moved by his singing,his guitaring and his great songwriting skills!I thought to myself "how come such a talented guitarist/singer/songwriter/saxophonist/harmonicaist (i wonder if thats what they call them)never got the recognition he deserved in his lifetime and after his sad untimely death, while others such as Jimi Hendrix,Janis Joplin,Bob Marley,Jim Morrison and many many others to name a few are seen as martyrs of Rock 'n' Roll?" Defnitely they are all great,but,Rory really stands out between them!If you dont believe me or if you think i am exagerating just buy the cd listen to it and inevitably you will start purchasing all his albums just like I did and please let me know.

Absolutely amazing!
