    From the Irish Tour and I don't even know the title, but it is red hot intense- guitar and band are smokin'
    " Walk on hot coals
    Sleep on a razor blade" or something

    It's a Blues in D but with F////Em////D//// turnaround

    The solo on Tattoo’d Lady is epic.

    Walk On Hot Coals it is.
    Rory’s playing is outrageous on this one.

    Hi.

    Like others it seems, I prefer the live stuff mostly.

    I think Million Miles Away may be my fav., but it's a tough call.

    This TV clip is the first time I every heard of Rory Gallagher - it played one night during my teenage years, on one of New Zealand's two music programmes (the non top-10 one). I was blown away - wild stuff for this wee country lad.

    That's Rory playing his Tele in my avatar.

    Like others here, I prefer his live work. I think that's where he really shined. Nobody could play an audience like him. And his trio was amazingly tight. So he had many, many great shows.

    Also, I can't pick a single song as a favorite. Irish Tour was, IMO, the best live album by anyone, ever.

    Here's a rare clip from the BBC, 1973.

    Bullfrog Blues. He really rips on that song live. Rory is the reason I had to have a Strat.

    It has to be this, right?

    Absolute liquid entrance lick as the bass and drums start.

    Box of frogs is one of my all time favorites with Rory on tracks 5&7 ( the first album)
    basicly all surviving menbers of the yardbirds with jeff Beck and Rory Gallagher
