fresh evidence is very good album but it's probably my least favorite rory album. but it has some classic rory stuff on it

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

So grey is the face of every mortal

Yeah strangely enough i didn't much like FRESH EVIDENCE when i first bought it on release back in April 1990 but down the years it has grown on me and i would actually go as far as saying that it's possibly my FVOURITE album of his.

KID GLOVES - MIDDLE NAME - EMPIRE STATE EXPRESS - GHOST BLUES - WALKING WOUNDED - SLUMING ANGEL all CLASSIC stuff amongst several other of Rory's songs on the album.

Better to make two parts of poll. First 5 albums, and 5 in other poll.

I had a listen to TOP PRIORITY yesterday (first time in maybe 10 years?) and it sounded RATHER GOOD actually.

Even though i regard the albums RORY GALLAGHER & DEUCE as his best albums for writing & playing i must admit if you just wanna 'rockout' with a good batch of blues/rock numbers then you can't go far wrong with this album ;)

I love ALL Rory's albums (as I suspect most of us do!), but for me Fresh Evidence is the best. His songwriting and playing was like nothing else he'd done (just my humble opinion of course!). I feel that his writing and playing became very sophisticated on this album, like he "came of age" with it, although I'm not sure that's quite the description I want because it's not as if Rory was ever an amateur, but it kind of describes it best for me.
