Play Guitar with Rory Gallagher book and cd

Got my copy of the Play Along with Rory Gallagher book and cd this week. I must say this is outstanding, even revolutionary. The transcriptions are high quality, but it's the backing tracks that are special. I've heard many backing tracks in my time, some good and some not so good, but I have never seen a set of tracks for a single artist like this that are the genuine original studio tracks like this. It's truly inspiring to play along with Gerry, Rod, et al, even Rory. The tracks are mixed to modern standards and sound great. My eternal gratitude to whoever had the vision to make this book/cd happen.

In total agreement with you.
I had hoped the first three books in this series would have had backing tracks CD's or maybe tuition videos, but this was a real surprise, actually being able to play guitar with Gerry, Wilgar, Rod, Lou, Ted and Brendan.
My main instrument is bass so I'm also listening to Gerry's bass and picking up new bass riffs also.
Not sure who's idea it was, but I think the suggestion came up in a list of questions on this forum for Donal and Daniel. As Daniel was the main man in the mixing etc of Notes From San Francisco, then he could have had some input. The info at the beginning of the book says, CD's mixed and mastered by Jonas Persson. Also says special thanks to Daniel for his help in preparing this volume.
