    I have the 74 CD but not DVD. I do have the Montreaux DVD. Most of his other CDs are in my library. Never did get to see him though. I looked back in his archives and saw he'd only played here once back before I had ever heard anything by him

    I don’t have any of his stuff. Which live album has the best performance of Messin with the Kid?

    I saw him in London 1973, at the Rainbow Finsbury Park around Christmas. A truely life changing experience for this young aspiring guitarist.

    I'll probably buy that. I always like to add to my Rory collection!

    It's surprisingly hard to find original Rory Gallagher LPs. I've managed to find Irish Tour, Blueprint and Jinx on vinyl, but I've had to settle for CD reissues otherwise. I think he's one of those artists where if you're a fan, you're really a fan, and so hold on to all your records.

    Well, we might well have been rubbing shoulders then @Cesspit, because I was there that night too, and feeling as rough as rats if I remember correctly. I had the flu I think, but I was determined to go. I was living in Camberley/Surrey at the time, and drove up in my old Mk1 Cortina with three mates. That was 47 years ago.. OMG and I was 21.. jeeze.. :eek::D

    I was 17, a mate and I drove from Southgate, only a few minutes away. If my memory work
    Mate it's scary as I don't really feel any different, aches and pains aside.
    Wasn't Jackie Lyntons Grande Band the support?

    I'm hoping now I've spouted my mouth off we were at the same gig. You said near Christmas, I have a feeling it was either February or March 1973, and the support band were called Green... something. An organ player? I can't remember for the life of me, but it may well trigger later. If I do, I'll post.

    This particular time brings back lots of stuff for me, especially memories of my beautiful girlfriend and mate Cindy, who tragically got hooked on heroin and died at the age of 34. I heard that many years later from a friend, and it absolutely gutted me, even though I was happily married at the time..

    Rory all the way.
    He was such an inspiration, great guy and awesome player.
    R.I.P.
    Yeah, pushing out stuff making money but it is Rory.

    All the best,
    Robin

    I know what you mean about pushing out product like that. The Hendrix family is pretty bad about it and so is Tommy Bolin's family

    I will say most of Rorys stuff has been done really well. Notes From San Francisco and Blues are both excellent releases so I'm pretty hopeful about this new one as well
