Hi Vasdis..If you look back at all the pages now, you can see. I've merged the original NFSF album topic with yours ;) ..
To give you a favour of what other Rory fans thought of this album.. Rory History back in the day tells us.. he aborted and did not want this album released.

Yes Donal goes into why he didn't want it released in some detail,certain i heard somewhere that Rory had seen The Sex Pistols somewhere in the US and was amazed at
their pure energy and not being happy with this album had forbidden its release being quite disappointed with it.

That's correct Vasdis and a reason why Rory's next move after seeing The Sex Pistols was to go back to a 3 piece Rock power trio..
NFSF would have been after Calling Card with the four piece band continuing from that album. Instead we get Photo Finish with 3 piece band and some of the songs featured on NFSF...
Yet in a much more " Meat and Potatoes " harder edged Rock Blues style as Rory would describe :)

Rock On for Rory
