What a force of nature he was ........
Oh yes! Love me some Rory. He's top 5 for me. His blues style had that little Celtic flair or something. It's hard to put my finger on what it was he did but I love it. Like all the greats, only he sounds like him.
There's never a bad time to hear some Rory.
Any advice on the best album of his to listen to? I’ve only ever heard one or two of his songs but would like to know where to start to hear more.
Rory Gallagher with Box of frogs ( the remaining members of the yard birds)
I love this band
I have defender and against the grain, and irish tour '74 all are fine albums , both he and Jeff beck did tracks on the box of frogs album ( great album as well)
@adamp824 - Rory is best experienced in a live setting, so you won't go far wrong with Irish Tour '74.
The whole album is on utube, apparently:
My favorites are the albums Calling Card (1977 I believe) and Tattoo (1973). Irish Tour is a nice intro...if you don't like it, you probably won't like the rest. That or his Montreux DVD.
Irish Tour ‘74
Against The Grain
Live in Europe (from 72)
You can also give Taste (his first band) a listen, if you can find it. Amazon Music does have some Taste records.
There is also a best of kind of thing called the “Story So Far”. Time span between Deuce and Tattoo.
He's so great to watch! I recommend a YouTube Playlist, starting with the first song of his I was ever mesmerized by ...
What a sound! Rory could play guitar. None better.
Rory could beat the sound out of an acoustic resonator! Awesome slide performance
Needless to say, I’m a fan. Big fan

Thanks for posting @NWinther
That footage is not only crystal clear but the audio is spectacular as well. That was so amazing to watch.
