Released in 1971 after the disbandment of Taste the previous year, Rory Gallagher’s eponymous debut album was recorded at London’s Advision Studios and further established him as a guitarist to be reckoned with. 50 years on and the Irish bluesman’s legacy continues as a guitarist’s guitarist, with the likes of Joe Satriani, Joe Bonamassa, and Slash citing him as a major influence.
In celebration of the album’s golden anniversary, a limited edition five-disc Deluxe box set has been planned for release on September 3. A Rory Gallagher fan’s dream, it includes a brand-new mix of the original album; 30 unreleased/alternative tracks; a 6-song BBC Radio John Peel Sunday concert from 1971; and 4 other BBC Radio session tracks.
The Deluxe box set also contains a previously unreleased DVD of the French “Pop Deux” television show, along with a 32-page hardback book containing rare and previously unseen photographs.
Cut down versions of the Deluxe release are available as a double CD and limited edition 3LP.
