RELEASE DATE - 6th March 2020

Rory Gallagher’s most successful albums are his live ones, such as “Live! In Europe” and “Irish Tour ’74”. He was an artist that came alive when onstage and this album covers a previously undocumented live period. This 20 song, previously unreleased, set is culled from an early 1977 tour across the UK in support of his then latest album ‘Calling Card’. Featuring fantastic live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1975 ‘Against The Grain’ album and other career favourites. This new album has been mastered at Abbey Road. The cover painting is by a young Irish graffiti artist Vincent Zara who has stenciled Rory’s image across his home country.

- JOHNNY MARR “The man who changed my musical life was Rory Gallagher, I picked up a guitar because of him.”

- SLASH “Rory didn’t sound like anybody else…He had a very individual, independent kind of tone and approach and everything. He’salways been a big hero to me.”

- BRIAN MAY “He was just a magician, he’s one of the very few people of that time who could make his guitar do anything it seemed. It just seemed to be magic. I remember looking at that battered Stratocaster and thinking “how does that come out of there?”

- ED SHEERAN “’A Million Miles Away’ was the first song I learned on guitar. The story goes that when Jimi Hendrix was asked how it felt to be the greatest guitarist in the world, he answered, “I don’t know. Go ask Rory Gallagher.”

- ERIC CLAPTON “The man who got me back into the blues.”
        
- PETER FRAMPTON “When I was with Humble Pie and we were all just beginning to feel like we were getting it together, Rory was the one to measure yourself against. To be able to play like that with such intensity was awesome and really the only other guitarist that had that ability was Hendrix. I could never get a sound like that from my Strat no matter how hard I tried. He was a real credit to music and pushed it to another level altogether.”
