Article #436 has been added to RoryON!! http://www.roryon.com

It's been awhile since I added a new article...combination of being busy, the loss of my hard drive and not having the patience to type an article.

This isn't one that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy!
It's from the July 1973 issue of CREEM.
****Rory Gallagher: Blueprint by Dann DeWitt******

Rather that reviewing the album,. the writer rips Rory pretty severely. While Blueprint wasn't Rory's strongest effort, and in my opinion, the one that was improved when the original reissues were put out in 2000, this writeup is pretty nasty.

Interested in your opinion!!!

stay well and RoryON!!

My reaction to the article-
Regarding the author, it was not much in the way of a review, nothing of substance. Seemed like the review of a critic who didn't think much of the genre in the first place. So his opinion has little meaning for me.

In a nutshell :D

How easy it is to hide behind the anonymity of a journalistic pen. Your critique of Rory proved quite 'Witless'.

After reading the article there are several words not very polite to describe my opinion.
There's an spanish sayer "A palabras necias oidos sordos" which more or less means "Nasty words deserve dumb ears"

In my opinion Dan Dewitt does not understand the magic of Rory's music or its power. It is Dan's loss. I hope since 1973 in the last 40 yrs he may now understand the beauty and power of RG's music. Subrata. x
