"Rory Gallagher" is Rory Gallagher's first solo album after several albums with Taste. Rory Gallagher has a very large collection of outstanding recordings and this is one of the best. Some really great songs on this album - Laundromat (an all-time great Gallagher song), some slower songs with incredible feel, and a couple of jazzy songs (which is a little unique to this album).

I have been a huge Rory Gallagher fan for 30 years and have all of his recordings. This is one of my favorites and is a must have CD for any Rory Gallagher fan.

This is one of the 1st solo lps by Rory since the beak-up of Taste. Though this was released in 1971, it is as fresh as the day it was recorded. For a man is his early 20s, his ability for playing and song writing is way beyond his years. I put him up there with the likes of Clapton, Winter and Guy, not only as a bluesman, but as a jazz player and rocker as well.
This was only a foretaste of things to come, the start of a legendary career spanning 2 1/2 decades serving to inspire the careers of countless guitarists across the globe. He finished the way he began, a hard-working musician's musician, refusing to cheapen his art thru crass commercialism.

This is the start of his solo career and it's great. I ran across Rory by chance while I was a student in Chicago. Going from one record shop to another on my days off I was in a shop and the music being played was great but I didn't know who it was. It was Rory Gallagher "Irish Tour '74" and it was in the budget bids. That got me hooked. This self titled album from start to finish is great. I really haven't found a bad cut on any of his albums. If you like blues rock guitar then this is the guy to listen to.

I think I now know why I sometimes get Rory Gallagher and Tommy Bolin confused. Just look at this album cover! Rory resembles Tommy a little don't you think? Similar long hair, face and smile. It's not like I get their guitar styles confused. They're both completely different in that regard... and of course equally brilliant and personally hard for me to pick which one I like more. Seriously I could never pick between the two.

Anyway the dark album cover makes me think the music itself will be dark. Let's see if that's true. "For the Last Time" is a song I recognize from somewhere (XM radio most likely when I used to have that many years ago). It *is* dreary! It sounds extremely eerie the way Rory sings the line "You've played around for the last time, you showed your claws now I'm going to show mine. Watch out, I feel around, in the night". I also sense some of Rory's future ideas here since the rhythm reminds me of "A Million Miles Away" a little bit. "You went around since the very first day, you've had your moment now I'm going to have my play. So long, I'll be gone, in the night"... man, what a melody! How about Rory's guitar solo? Well when it arrives, at first it's less about dazzling listeners with amazing guitar skills and more about emotion. Then gradually it becomes technically impressive! The more the solo (more like a jam huh?) goes along, the more you get to discover Rory's true guitar skills in all their flashy brilliant glory. BRILLIANT jam!

"Hands Up" (you're caught red handed!) is upbeat blues and jazz. "Think of all the dreams you're chasing, think about all the time you're wasting now" is a good line because I can relate to it I'm sad to admit.
