In celebration of Rory Gallagher’s 70th birthday

UMC announce the reissue of his entire solo catalogue

Released 16 March 2018

“The man who changed my musical life was Rory Gallagher. I picked up a guitar because of him.” – Johnny Marr 

“A beautiful man and an amazing guitar player” – The Edge

To be released on 16 March 2018, the Rory Gallagher collection represents an incredible body of work from one of the most renowned and celebrated guitarists ever. The reissues represent both the first wave of Rory Gallagher releases since the Universal Music Group label obtained the rights to his solo catalogue in 2017. UMC will be working closely with the Rory Gallagher estate on new physical and streaming products.

Rory Gallagher is one of the most influential and important guitarists of all time, he was idolised across the world and inspired a plethora of guitarist including Ed Sheeran, The Edge, Brian May and Johnny Marr to name but a few. Having formed the band Taste during the late 1960s, he went on to find global recognition as a virtuoso solo artist selling over 30 million albums worldwide.

Donal Gallagher, brother of Rory and director of the Rory Gallagher estate, says, “My only sibling wasn’t one for birthdays but his birthdate gives us a good reason to celebrate Rory's music and legacy."

This is as complete a reissue package as there has ever been for Rory Gallagher, they are all available on CD and 180 gram LP except where indicated - Against The Grain; BBC Sessions (2CD only); Blueprint; Calling Card; Defender; Deuce; Fresh Evidence; Irish Tour ’74 (1CD/ 2LP) ; Jinx; Live In Europe; Notes From San Francisco (2CD / 1LP); Photo Finish; Rory Gallagher; Stage Struck; Tattoo; Top Priority; Wheels Within Wheels (vinyl coming soon).

Excellent! This is great news for those of us who have been growing tired of the same ol' catalogue numbers on the spines of our existing collection of reissues and re-reissues. Another great celebration squeezed out of Rory's legacy!

The cd prices seem reasonable enough but the vinyl looks a bit steep, i think i payed as much as £2.20 for my no longer used vinyl copies.

hello everyone!
it's been a long time since i've been here. i don't know new people on here but some older forum boys and girls like jim, jay jay, suby, sinner girl might remember me.
i was wondering about these new reissues. are they the same remaster as 2012 ones? same content and audio quality? are those 2012 ones out of print?

Hi innuendo. The 2012 and 2017 remasters appear separately on Spotify for me, which suggests they may be different.

I'm sure the 0.001% improvement in digital remastering technology in the intervening 5 years will have improved Rory's analogue recordings immensely. Again (again). Everybody should go out and re-purchase the whole back catalogue, to ensure another miracle of remastering can occur in the not-so-distant future.
