Best Of Rory Gallagher Set On The Way

Following the commercial and critically acclaimed success of the recent albums “Blues” (2019) and “Check Shirt Wizard – Live in ’77” (2020), UMC is releasing “The Best Of Rory Gallagher” in October this year.

The compilation includes Rory’s recordings compiled from across his extensive recording career, including tracks from his first band Taste (from 1969) through to his final studio album “Fresh Evidence” (1990).

The album will be released as a Double CD set with 30 tracks including a previously unreleased track with Jerry Lee Lewis.

It will also be released as a 2-disc black vinyl set and “direct to consumer” limited clear 2LP, plus a 15-track single CD, as well as digital HD and digital download.

The Rory Gallagher Archives contains some amazing rarities and this set will include “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” – cut with Jerry Lee Lewis’ at The Killer’s 1973 “London Sessions” featuring Rory singing and playing the Rolling Stones’ classic alongside Jerry Lee Lewis.
