    A Million Miles Away is a great one...I love it. Love his work on the slide too! Too Much Alcohol is a great example. Bless the Irish Wizard!

    Too obvious if I say Messin' With The Kid? Rory was a cut above... did they rename Cork airport yet?

    All of the above are amazing... Plus this one, too! Rory rarely played a bad tune.

    Massive Rory fan here!
    Irish Tour is my favorite album of his: A Million Miles Away is superb, and I really really love Walk On Hot Coals too.
    Rory was such a nice guy, and he is maybe the only "guitar hero" who does not bore me.

    Anything live is great. His studio albums just sound dated to me.

    Can't pick. Too much choice. It'd be like choosing a favourite child.

    Not just the song, but the performance ( I too prefer his live work ).

    Today's three will be.....

    Slumming Angel
    Shadow Play
    Bad Penny

    Tomorrow, it'll be different.

    Love me some Rory Gallagher! I found a lot of his albums in the cut-out bins of my local record stores back in the day. Irish Tour is probably my favorite too...

    tah1962 ... Oh man! .... Don't get me started on this one ...
    Love the guy, never saw him live but if I could only take one album to a Desert Island it would be Rory's "Irish Tour" ... I will be strong, so although he's a million miles away ... I gotta go with:

    there's an awful lot of his music I've never heard, but from what I have, I love "I wonder who" from irish tour. that intro is just so cool, imo.

    Million miles away from Irish tour is hard to beat but there are so many good songs and different live versions. He was an amazing player. Like most great guitarists, they have a sound that only they have, when you hear it, sometimes just one note, you know it's them.
