New Rory Gallagher Live Set Due In March

Following on from the highly successful ‘BLUES’ album, Chess/UMC are releasing a CD/LP set by Rory Gallagher ‘Check Shirt Wizard- Live In ‘77’.

This 20-song, previously unreleased, set is culled from four shows (London, Brighton, Sheffield and Newcastle) during an early 1977 tour across the UK in support of Rory’s then latest album ‘Calling Card’.

Featuring fantastic live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1975 ‘Against The Grain’album and other live favourites.

The album has been mixed from the original multi track tapes from Rory’s archive, which were recorded by the Rolling Stones and Jethro Tull’s mobile studios and mastered at Abbey Road.

Rory’s most popular albums have always been his live ones, such as ‘Live! In Europe’, ‘Irish Tour ’74’ and Stage Struck.

“The whole concert was taped on the Jethro Tull Maison Rouge mobile by the way, and from where I was standing that concert on record would surpass the classic “Live in Europe” album. And that’s saying a lot.” Brian Harrigan Melody Maker – 1977, Hammersmith Odeon, London.
