Rory Gallagher: Album Buying Guide

Rory Gallagher

Irish-born guitarist Rory Gallagher first came to our attention as the frontman of the power trio Taste, a well-regarded band that rode the second wave of the 1960s-era British blues-rock boom to a modicum of success and fame. Gallagher launched his solo career with a self-titled 1971 album and immediately hit the road, touring almost constantly until his death in 1995.

Along the way, he recorded better than a dozen studio, and a handful of live albums that showcased his incendiary playing style and underrated songwriting skills.

Often overlooked in favor of contemporaries like Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, Gallagher stands among the best blues-rock guitarists in the history of the genre.
