rory gallagher



Sony Legacy Recordings in association with Capo Records, is proud to announce the next series of Rory Gallagher's classic albums re-mastered. The reissued series of classic albums continues with the following Rory Gallagher albums released in chronological order from 1975 – 1982. Albums include 'Against The Grain' (1975), 'Calling Card' (1976), 'Photo-Finish' (1978), 'Top Priority' (1979), and 'Jinx' (1982).

Picking up where Rory left off with the phenomenal 'Irish Tour '74' live album, the release of 1975s 'Against The Grain', found Rory at the top of his game and in sparkling form both in the studio and on stage. The next seven years saw the release of these five outstanding records.

Each reissue has been digitally re-mastered to stunning effect from the original ¼ inch tapes and features digitally restored original vinyl release album artwork, new booklet content and bonus tracks. All five albums will be released in the UK on October 1st for a limited period in deluxe digi-packaging.

Rory Gallagher was a musician like no other. He was, and still is, one of the world's greatest guitarists, singers, song writers and live showmen. His music lives on through generations of guitarists including Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Brian May, Johnny Marr and The Edge; and also through his amazing catalogue including some of his finest works included in this collection of releases.

Each of the five studio albums are now re-released in digipack form, with restored artwork based on the original first release cover art. The audio has been re-mastered from the original ¼ inch tapes. Each album includes exclusive sleeve notes, album reviews and rare photographs.

"Continuing on from last year's 40th Anniversary of Rory Gallagher's solo career, we're pleased to present his next five solo albums from 1975-1982," says Daniel Gallagher, Rory's nephew and producer of the reissues. "The interest in Rory's music is still so strong that we can continue to celebrate the man's music by re-issuing more of his studio albums. We're going back to the vinyl artwork and original 1/4" tapes so that they look and sound exactly as Rory intended. It's also great to see in a digital world that the demand for a physical copy of Rory's music means we can release these albums on vinyl for the first time in almost 40 years."

'Against The Grain' was originally released in 1975. This deluxe reissue features original release album reviews written by Cameron Crowe of Rolling Stone.

'Calling Card' was originally released in 1976. This deluxe reissue features an interview with 'Calling Card' producer and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, plus the previously unreleased track 'Where Was I Going To?'

'Photo-Finish' was originally released in 1978. This deluxe reissue features an album review written by David Fricke in Circus magazine in 1980, plus two bonus tracks.

'Top Priority' was originally released in 1979. This deluxe reissue features a CREEM magazine album review from 1980, plus two bonus tracks 'Hell Cat' and 'The Watcher'.

'Jinx' was originally released in 1982. The reissue boasts a review of the album originally published in Melody Maker, plus two bonus tracks 'Nothin' But The Devil' and 'Lonely Mile'.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
