Mint 1973 UK Textured Cover Original. "Kicking Off With The Furious "Walk On Hot Coals" Where Rory Gallagher's Stinging Guitar And Lou Martin's Insistent Piano Pounding Spar Within The Context Of One Of Rory's Classic Rockers, The Album Presents A Well Rounded Picture Of Gallagher's Eclectic Influences. A Jaunty, Acoustic Run Through Big Bill Broonzy's "Banker's Blues" (Oddly Credited To Gallagher), The Ragtime "Unmilitary Two-Step" As Well As An Unusually Straightforward Country Tune "If I Had A Reason" With Rory On Lap-Steel And Martin Doing His Best Honky-Tonk, Effectively Break Up The Blues-Rock That Remains The Soul Of The Album. The Album's Centerpiece, A Brooding "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" Finds The Band Locked Into A Swampy Groove For Over Eight Minutes As Gallagher Abbreviates His Own Solo Providing Room For Martin's Aggressive Piano."

Gallagher, Rory - Jinx Jinx
Pop New - LP SRM-1-4051 Mercury
Sealed 1982 Original. Small Cut Corner. “Rory Gallagher Sounds Inspired Throughout Jinx, Gamely Leading New Drummer Brendan O'Neill And Keyboardist Bob Andrews Through The Blues-Rock Paces, Even Though The Guitarist's Personal Fortunes Were On A Downslide From Which They Would Never Recover. "Big Guns" And "Bourbon," The Album's Opening Selections Find Rory In Full Fiery Form, Tossing Out Muscular Guitar Lines And Fiery Solos With Descriptive Lyrics Catering To His Infatuation With American Gangsters. The Album Also Features Two Of His Best, And Least Known, Songs In The Spooky, Paranoid Title Track, Complete With Simmering Sax Section, Boiling Tom-Tom Drums As Well As His Own Stealthy Harmonica, And "Easy Come Easy Go," A Beautiful, Bluesy Ballad Where Rory Double Tracks His Acoustic And Electric Guitars. Gallagher's Tough Vocals Take On A New Emotional Depth Not Previously Heard, And Are Particularly Poignant Throughout. Diving Into The Blues, Lightnin' Slims' "Nothin' But The Devil," One Of The Two Songs Added For This Reissue, Is An Acoustic Solo Showpiece Revealing Gallagher's Delta Roots And Substantial Slide Abilities. Louisiana Red's "Ride On Red, Ride On" Is A Crackling Double-Time Burner With Rory Charging Through With An Appropriately Whisky-Soaked Approach And A Shimmering Electric Slide Solo. Another Extra Track, "Lonely Mile," A Finished Tune Previously Omitted Due To The Time Restrictions Of Vinyl, Is A Worthy Addition To Gallagher's Mid-Tempo Grinding Rocker Catalog.” Hal Horowitz, AMG.... more details

Gallagher, Rory - Irish Tour '74 Irish Tour '74
Pop New - LP PD2-9501 Polydor
Sealed 1974 2LP Gatefold Original. “The Companion Piece To Director Tony Palmer's Documentary Of The Same Name, Irish Tour 1974 Was Recorded That January In Belfast, Dublin, And Cork At A Time When Precious Few Performers — Irish Or Otherwise — Were Even Dreaming Of Touring The Trouble-Torn Island. Northern Ireland, In Particular, Was A Rock & Roll No-Go Area, But Gallagher Never Turned His Back On The Province And Was Rewarded With What History Recalls As Some Of His Best-Ever Gigs. Irish Tour 1974, In Turn, Captures Some Of His Finest Known Live Recordings And, While It's Impossible To Tell Which Songs Were Recorded Where, Across Nine In-Concert Recordings (Plus One After-Hours Jam Session, "Back On My Stompin' Ground"), The Energy Crackling From Stage To Stalls And Back Again Packs An Intensity That Few Live Albums — Gallagher's Own Others Among Them — Can Match. Highlights Of A Stunning Set Include Dramatic Takes On Muddy Waters' "I Wonder Who" And Tony Joe White's "As The Crow Flies," A Raw Acoustic Rendering That Is Nevertheless Totally Electrifying. A Frustratingly Brief Snip Of The Classic Shadows-Style "Maritime" (Aka "Just A Little Bit") Plays The Album Out In Anthemic Style And Then, Of Course, There's "Walk On Hot Coals," A Marathon Excursion That Posterity Has Decreed Gallagher's Most Popular And Accomplished Statement — A Status That Irish Tour 1974 Does Nothing To Contradict. It's Foolish Playing Favorites, However. Even More Than Gallagher's Earlier (1972) Live In Europe Album, Irish Tour 1974 Confirms Gallagher Not Simply As The Greatest Bluesman Ireland Ever Knew, But As One Of The Island's Greatest-Ever Performers. The 1999 Remaster Adds Nothing In The Way Of Bonus Material (Shame), But Greatly Improves The Sound Quality.” – Dave Thompson, All Music Guide... more details

Gallagher, Rory - Calling Card Calling Card
Pop Used - LP CHR 1124 Chrysalis
1976 Original. Cut Corner. "Gallagher's Second Album For Chrysalis — And Last With His Longstanding Trio Of Lou Martin (Keyboards), Rod De'Ath (Drums) And Gerry Mcavoy (Bass) — Was A Milestone In His Career. Although Calling Card Was Produced By Deep Purple Bassist Roger Glover And Not Surprisingly Contained Some Of His Most Powerfully Driving Rockers, Tracks Like The Acoustic "Barley & Grape Rag" And The Jazzy, Soulful, Finger Snapping Title Cut — A Perennial Concert Favorite — Found The Irish Rocker Not Only Exploring Other Musical Paths, But Also Caught Him On One Of His Most Consistent Songwriting Streaks Ever. Even "Do You Read Me," The Muscular Opening Track, Is A Remarkably Stripped-Down Affair That Adds Subtle Synths To The Rugged Blues Rock That Was Gallagher's Claim To Fame. While "Moonchild," "Country Mile," And "Secret Agent" Displayed Catchy Hooks, Engaging Riffs, And Raging Guitar Work (The Latter Adds A Touch Of Deep Purple's Jon Lord-Styled Organ To The Proceedings), It's The Elegant Ballad "I'll Admit You're Gone" That Shifts The Guitarist Into Calmer Waters And Proves His Melodic Talent Was Just As Cutting On Quieter Tunes. And It's A Crime That The Gorgeous "Edged In Blue," Certainly One Of The Artist's Saddest And Most Beautiful Pop Melodies, Was Overlooked In His Catalog. Arguably Rory Gallagher's Finest Studio Effort, It Was Among His Best And Most Varied Batch Of Songs, And It Is A Perfect Place For The Curious To Start Their Collection As Well As An Essential Disc Showing Gallagher At The Peak Of His Powers.” – Hal Horowitz, All Music Guide... more details

Even More Astounding Is That Far From Sounding Fatigued Or Burnt Out, His Performance Here Is Loose And Impassioned, And The Tunes Are Some Of The Best Of His Career. Lou Martin's Keyboards Are Better Integrated Into The Band, And Drummer Rod De'ath Swings And Burns With Easy Confidence. The Double Whammy Of The Album's Two Crunching Leadoff Tracks, "Tattoo'd Lady" And "Cradle Rock" Illustrate Just How Comfortable Gallagher Is With His Backing Group, And The Smooth-Rolling Unplugged Guitar And Harmonica Of "20-20 Vision" Proves That The Blues Rocker Is A More Than Adequate Delta/Folk Musician. Better Still Is The Acoustic Slide Intro To "Who's That Comin'" That Effortlessly And Discretely Eases Its Way Into A Chicago Styled, Mid-Tempo, Electric Attack. "A Million Miles Away" Pushes The Envelope Even Further With A Slow, Greasy Swamp Groove Against Which Gallagher Picks Clipped, Staccato Notes Over A Well-Oiled Rhythm Section, Thick Hammond Organ Overdubbed With Piano From Martin, And Even A Multi-Tracked Sax Section From The Guitarist.” – Hal Horowitz, All Music Guide... more details

Gallagher, Rory - Against The Grain Against The Grain
Pop Used - LP CHR 1098 Chrysalis
Beautiful 1975 Promotional Label. Appears Unplayed. “After Releasing Two Albums In 1973 And A Live, Contract-Fulfilling Disc In 1974, Gallagher Returned Rested And Recharged In 1975 With A New Record Label, Chrysalis, And A Band With Almost Three Years Of Hard Touring Under Their Belts. With Its Attention To Detai, Against The Grain Sounds More Practiced And Intricate Than Most Of Gallagher's Previous Studio Discs, But Still Includes Some Of His Most Powerful Rockers. The Supercharged "Souped-Up Ford," Where Rory Howls And Wails, With His Voice And Smoking Slide, And "All Around Man," An Urgent Blues Rocker That Begins With Gallagher Screaming And Crying Together With Just His Electric Guitar Until The Band Kicks In With A Stop-Start Blues Rhythm, Are Two Of The Definitive Moments. "Bought And Sold" Adds Congas To The Mix To Bring A More Rootsy And Even Jazzy Feel To Rory's Table. But It's On The Acoustic Tracks Where The Guitarist And His Band Really Lay Into The Groove. Gallagher's Version Of Leadbelly's "Out On The Western Plain," With Its Combination Of Indian Chords, American Delta Folk And Cowboy "Yippee-Ki-Yay" Chorus Is One Of The Irishman's Unheralded Highlights, And "Cross Me Off Your List" Is Affecting In Its Yearning Melody, Subtle Keyboard And Minor Key. A Playful And Forceful Romp Through Sam And Dave's "I Take What I Want" Shows Gallagher's Soul Roots.” Hal Horowitz, All Music Guide.... more details

Gallagher, Rory - Beat Club Sessions Beat Club Sessions
Pop New - LP RCV064LP Back On Black
Sealed 2011 UK 2LP 180gm Gatefold Colored (White Or Grey) Vinyl. "The Rory Gallagher Musical Well Isn't Dry Quite Yet, As Evidenced By This Dozen-Track Collection Of Live-In-The-Studio Work From The Early Years Of His Solo Career. This Disc Officially Appeared In September 2010 And Collects Four Tunes From Three Separate Sessions Recorded May 1971 Through June 1972 For The German Beat Club Tv Series (A Companion Dvd Was Released Simultaneously). The Songs Will Be Familiar To Gallagher Fans, As Most Are Available On His First Few Albums. All But Junior Wells' "Messin' With The Kid" And Sonny Thompson's "Toredown" (Probably Best Known Through Freddie King's Version) Are Originals, Played By His Sturdy Backing Trio Featuring Wilgar Campbell On Drums And Longtime Bassist Gerry Mcavoy. While There Aren't Many Musical Surprises, These Versions Are Noticeably Leaner And Tougher Than Their Associated Studio Performances. This Also Makes A Logical Companion Piece To Gallagher's Breakthrough Release, Live In Europe, Since It's Recorded With The Same Band But Only Repeats Four Of Its Selections. The Blues-Rocker Was Young, Hungry, And Scorching Hot During These Years And Germany Was One Of The First Countries Where He Found Success. Numbers Such As "Crest Of A Wave," "Sinnerboy," "Used To Be," The Aforementioned "Toredown" Along With The Acoustic "Just The Smile" And "I Don't Know Where I'm Going" Don't Show Up Often In Concert Versions, If At All, Even With The Plethora Of Live Gallagher Material Available, So Clean, Live Recordings Of Them Are A Real Find For Fans. The Guitarist Hit His Groove On These Sessions, As Can Be Heard On A Surging "I Could've Had Religion," Where His Slide Work Simply Burns. The Song "Hands Up," Caught Here From The 1971 Show, Wouldn't Appear On A Studio Title Until 1973'S Blueprint, Although The Arrangement Didn't Change Markedly Over The Years. Gallagher Rips Into A Seven-Minute Take On His Slow Blues "Should've Learned My Lesson" With The Type Of Intensity Jimmy Page Routinely Displayed, And Campbell's Drums Have Ferocity Similar To John Bonham's. The Sound Is Terrific For Live Music Of The Time -- Full, Rich, And Well Recorded, With Every Instrument Easily Identifiable In The Mix But Displaying All The Rawness And Crackling Sparks That Made Gallagher Such An Iconic Figure In The History Of Blues-Rock." - Hal Horowitz, Amg... more details

"Big Guns" And "Bourbon," The Album's Opening Selections Find Rory In Full Fiery Form, Tossing Out Muscular Guitar Lines And Fiery Solos With Descriptive Lyrics Catering To His Infatuation With American Gangsters. The Album Also Features Two Of His Best, And Least Known, Songs In The Spooky, Paranoid Title Track, Complete With Simmering Sax Section, Boiling Tom-Tom Drums As Well As His Own Stealthy Harmonica, And "Easy Come Easy Go," A Beautiful, Bluesy Ballad Where Rory Double Tracks His Acoustic And Electric Guitars. Gallagher's Tough Vocals Take On A New Emotional Depth Not Previously Heard, And Are Particularly Poignant Throughout. Diving Into The Blues, Lightnin' Slims' "Nothin' But The Devil," One Of The Two Songs Added For This Reissue, Is An Acoustic Solo Showpiece Revealing Gallagher's Delta Roots And Substantial Slide Abilities. Louisiana Red's "Ride On Red, Ride On" Is A Crackling Double-Time Burner With Rory Charging Through With An Appropriately Whisky-Soaked Approach And A Shimmering Electric Slide Solo. Another Extra Track, "Lonely Mile," A Finished Tune Previously Omitted Due To The Time Restrictions Of Vinyl, Is A Worthy Addition To Gallagher's Mid-Tempo Grinding Rocker Catalog.” Hal Horowitz, AMG.... more details
 
Gallagher, Rory - Jinx Jinx
Pop Used - LP SRM-1-4051 Mercury
1982 Original With Gold Promo Stamp On Back Cover. Includes Custom Inner Sleeve. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Rory Gallagher Sounds Inspired Throughout Jinx, Gamely Leading New Drummer Brendan O'Neill And Keyboardist Bob Andrews Through The Blues-Rock Paces, Even Though The Guitarist's Personal Fortunes Were On A Downslide From Which They Would Never Recover. "Big Guns" And "Bourbon," The Album's Opening Selections Find Rory In Full Fiery Form, Tossing Out Muscular Guitar Lines And Fiery Solos With Descriptive Lyrics Catering To His Infatuation With American Gangsters. The Album Also Features Two Of His Best, And Least Known, Songs In The Spooky, Paranoid Title Track, Complete With Simmering Sax Section, Boiling Tom-Tom Drums As Well As His Own Stealthy Harmonica, And "Easy Come Easy Go," A Beautiful, Bluesy Ballad Where Rory Double Tracks His Acoustic And Electric Guitars. Gallagher's Tough Vocals Take On A New Emotional Depth Not Previously Heard, And Are Particularly Poignant Throughout.
