Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent choice of albums from Rory's catalogue! I have all of his releases and he is probably THE MOST under-rated guitar player/hero from the classic rock era! He could play the blusiest blues, country blues and also he could shred with the best of them. In the 70's everyone that had Zepplin, Sabbath or Deep Purple also had Rory's Irish Tour 74 or Live In Europe. This guy could play the strat! Excellent cd's at an excellent price!

A great value on some incredible music July 3 2009
By Bill - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
You could pick any five of Rory's albums and have a killer set of CD's. I bought this for the hard to find Duece and Jinx CD's. I already had the other three and they are great with Top Priority being my favorite.... until I heard Duece! You can't lose with this collection - a great start for new Rory fans! Instead of figuring out which one to buy you get five great albums at an unbeliveable low price.

The power and the passion of Guitarist Rory Gallagher is unparalleled, excellent soulful blues and blazing rock. As you go through the CD's in order you can get a taste of how Rory's talent progresses from one CD to the next.

Rory is a rare talent who lived for his fans and tried to outperform his self with every performance. He lived to perform live. A very emotional lyricist, sonic guitarist, and genuine human being. Rory deserved better exposure and a much higher rating as an all round performer.

He's gone and that's a shame, but his music will live on.

Listen to the next Irish sensation Simon McBride Since Then

So many discs. So may tunes. For previews of music and videos not available on Amazon, check out Rory Gallagher's "Original Album Classics Tunes" on You Tube.

Best Blues ever plus bonus tracks Aug. 1 2008
By Proggy McGee - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just received this 5 cd set from Amazon and I love it! Five great albums with bonus tracks from the studio sessions which were left off because of time constraints. It's a whole lotta Rory beautifully remastered and at an incredible price. You can't go wrong.

One side note is that the slip case is very chunky and solid, so it feels like a real collector's piece. Nicely done.

What a talent! April 20 2012
By Old retired teacher - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first heard Rory Gallagher on Deep Tracks on XM/Sirius radio, I was so impressed I was on that day purchasing the CD that had the song I heard ("Messin' With the Kid"). I have since purchased about three other CD's of his. This set is well worth it, price and quantity. There are actually five CD's in this set, five Rory CD's for a little more than $20.00. Need I say more? I won't pretend I know a lot about the sound or the songs,some are more pleasing to my ears and played more than others, but all display his talent. This is especially good if you are like me and never even knew of him before (he died of liver complications in 1995 after a transplant; that alcohol ... it takes its toll). Good addition to a collector of excellent guitar work.
