I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Sony Music in association with Capo Records and Legacy re-issue of Rory Gallagher- Deuce - Review

I have been listening to the newly re - issued and remastered recording of Rory Gallagher's Deuce.“Deuce” became Rory's third self-penned album in a row - having written all of Taste's second album “On The Boards” as well as the debut solo album “Rory Gallagher”. “Deuce” was recorded at Tangerine Studios in Dalston, East London, which had been built by the legendary British record producer Joe Meek.This is a 10 track recording that covers a lot of Rory's musical interests at the time. The opening track, I'm Not Yet Awake, has a bit of a folk style to it and is followed up by Used To Be which is an early example of Blues rock at it's best. Don't Know Where I'm Going has a strong country Piedmont style to it and Maybe I Will comes back out swinging in Rory's UK rockin' style. Whole Lot Of People sends Rory finger picking on his strat and pushing the blues rock style that he is to develop. It also has a great little slide solo that is sure to please anyone who loves Rory's style. In Your Town brings on a full tilt boogie like a modern John Lee Hooker and Before G Thorogood caught the groove. Should've Learn't My Lesson is a down and dirty blues in the path of Otis Rush and is killer. There's a Light again visits Rory's beginnings in the experimental blues/rock/jazz genre that was starting to meld all musics together and demonstrating Rory's intricate playing style and versatility. Out Of My Mind is a bit of a folk blues in the style of Doc Watson showing Rory's acuity at finger picking. Crest Of A Wave wraps up release number two with Rory's blues rock style and his flaming slide work.

It's great to hear this timeless music again and freshly remastered.
