Remaster question - some help please

I have been off the grid for a while and I just need some conformation regarding the remastering of Rory's back catalogue. I want to purchase them, but want to make sure that I buy the actual remasters.

From looking at Amazon UK, it seems that Rory Gallagher, Deuce, Live In Europe, Blueprint and Tattoo are not actually remasters. However the albums from Irish Tour 74 are.

Please can someone confirm if these first 5 releases have been remastered and Amazon have got it wrong or have they not been released in the new format.

Sorry to be dumb etc, but I'd really appreciate some help before shelling out

Hiya Blues Blooded,

The confusion is that there are the remasters of all Rory's albums. Of which Tony Arnold mixed and remastered all by around the year 2000.
Then you have the reissues / remastered of which Daniel Gallagher has mixed and remastered. Nearer the original vinyl album sound. Which they started to release in 2012 and they are to complete the entire RG collection within the next few months.
Here is a link to the "RORY GALLAGHER ~ Audio & Vision ~ All Recorded Formats" section about the Rory Reissues

I hope this helps you in your decision on which ones to purchase now from amazon?

Rock On for Rory
Slainte, Jay Jay

Hi Jay

Thanks for that. So can you confirm that the albums from Rory Gallagher to Tattoo are available in the 2012 remaster

By now, every studio album (as well as 'Live in Europe', 'Irish Tour '74' and 'Stage Struck') is available in the 2012-13 reissue/remaster. So, yes. :) On amazon the release date is usually prominently displayed next to the title. In some cases the CDs are also marked as "Original recording remastered". Alternatively, a detailed description - publication date included - can be found once you click on the item.

Tokeiihto is absolutely correct here. The complete RG collection 2012 ~ 2013 of Daniel Gallagher's mix / remastered including the albums you're asking about BB :) When I said in the next few months, I was thinking of Daniel telling me, the Special Irish Tour '74 Anniversary album package out soon :)

Rock On For Rory

Cheers, thought that was the case. It seems that Amazon are offering both the 90's remasters and the latest ones. I'll just have to check thoroughly
