I would say maybe Irish Tour, or Stage Struck. But saying that, I'm more fans of live albums.


If studio, maybe Calling Card or Top Priority.

The only album of Rory Gallagher's that I own is Irish Tour.

I consider it to be a solid recording, but in complete honesty I was disappointed. However, this disappointment arose more-so from the hype of listening to Rory Gallagher than the album itself. He is indeed a talented musician, but many of the people who recommended him to be elevated him to an immortal status.

With respect, that's a totally unfair comment to make without comparing the studio versions of the same songs to those played live on the Irish Tour album - that's where you find out how great he is. His abilty to transform and develop his songs, improvising live, is incomparable. I won't say all his albums are my cup of tea, as they aren't, but I own all of his albums, official and otherwise. Just listening to the studio versions is just not enough. I originally thought 'oh he's ok-ish' when I first listened to the first album I got: 'Blueprint', but he grows on you, so collect everything. Seriously. Essential.

Start with his early albums and work your way through. Include the Taste stuff.

All-out blues-rock.

Peace.

That is quite fair. I do intend upon purchasing his other albums, because I do enjoy his music, so perhaps when that time comes I will be able to judge him better.
