Rory Gallagher

Rory Gallagher - Powerful And Velvet - 1980 - Frog Eater Records

A great unofficial recording from the late Rory Gallagher, the Donegal born Blues King, and one of Ireland's greatest sons. Jimi Hendrix was once asked in an interview, "What does it feel like to be the World's Best Guitarist", he replied "I don't know, ask Rory Gallagher." Fair comment from Jimi! Tracks like "I Could Have Had Religion" are played in the purest blues fashion. Rory's rendition of the great "Bullfrog Blues" which may be from a Lille concert in 1978 is another terrific track. .Can anybody help me out on exact dates, locations, musicians, etc. According to the vague sleeve notes, Tracks 1 - 6 were never released before? Can this be true? I doubt it! Track 4 is supposedly from his "Irish Tour 74" album, but I am not certain about this. Please excuse the sound quality, and comments are most welcome. Check out his landmark "Live In Europe" album @
