Which 1 Youtube Clip Could Turn a Music Fan onto RORY?

Postby Jay Jay » 29 Mar 2015, 16:26

With the announcement / topic on these boards "RORY GALLAGHER ~ You're Viewing or Listening to Now" almost at..
100 pages and over 85000 views. I'd like your thoughts and opinions on which of all these youtube Rory clips or another maybe? That could possible encourage or turn a music fan that has not heard of Rory before, onto Rory Gallagher and his music??

Shadow Play, Montreux 1979. This is not a virtuosity performance music wise by Rory, but displays him at his high energy best, walking that fine line between controlled fury and complete chaos! And having more fun doing it then even the audience. Watch how he whips them into a frenzy. Epic!

Well, for someone who has never heard Rory before,

All Around Man. Yeah, technically it wasn't written by Rory. But if you have ever read the original lyrics, he rewrote them for a more general audience, and as with all Rory's interpretations, he made this one his own- even if his modesty and sense of fairness compelled him to give full credit to Bo Carter.



This is IMHO one of Rory's most intense performances, and one of my favorite go-to clips when I want to show the uninitiated how very amazing this gifted artist was.

-Warning, original lyrics NSFW-

Spoiler: SHOW
All Around Man
Now I ain't no butcher, no butcher's son,
I can do your cuttin' 'til the butcher man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand
Now I ain't no plumber, no plumber's son,
I can do your screwin' till the plumber man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand
Now I ain't no miller, no miller's son,
I can do your grindin' 'til the miller man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand
Now I ain't no milkman, no milkman's son,
I can pull your titties 'til the milkman comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand
Now I ain't no spring-man1, no spring-man's son,
I can bounce your springs 'til the spring-man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand
Now I ain't no auger-man2, no auger-man's son,
I can blow your hole 'til the auger-man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Maybe "In your Town" from 1971-72 sessions. For younger people...

Maybe "All around man" for older people...

I'd actually suggest anything from Taste at the Isle of Wright.

But I was poking around and found this, audio only still wonderful, 'She's 19 Years Old'
