A recent thrift store score of my favorite Rory Gallagher album reminded me how too few Americans are aware of Rory's great music. If you're into blues with a bit of rock,especially Stevie Ray Vaughan,Pat Travers or Robin Trowers,you'll find a whole bunch to like about Rory. He is,perhaps,only rivaled by Roy Buchanon in terms of high talent to low recognition ratio.Not just a guitarists guitarist,he was a great singer and songwriter. In addition to his trademark Strat tones he incorporated acoustic and resonator guitars into his sound.Good news for those of you late to the Rory Gallagher party,or are just missing a Cd or two from the collection. In 2008 his albums underwent a remastering campaign. Because in record company terms,two years ago is a long time ago,his current catalog is heavily discounted on Amazon. Most of his prime Cds are available for $6.99-$7.98! Stock up,and tell a friend!
