RORY GALLAGHER – ” All Around Man Live In London “

Posted: May 6, 2023 in MUSIC

Presenting ‘All Around Man – Live In London’ available 7th July 2023. Rory Gallagher’s most successful albums are his live ones, such as “Live! In Europe” and “Irish Tour ’74”. He was an artist that came alive when onstage and this album covers a previously undocumented live period.

Rory Gallagher was an Irish musician, songwriter, and producer. He formed the blues rock trio Taste in 1966, which experienced success in the UK and Europe before he pursued a solo career, releasing music throughout the 1970s and 1980s and selling more than 30 million records worldwide. Gallagher is known for his virtuoso guitar playing, which strongly influenced other guitarists

This twenty-three song set, previously unreleased, set is culled from two nights at the Town & Country Club (now the O2 Forum) in London, UK. This new album has been mixed from the recently found multi tracks and mastered at Abbey Road. The album’s cover is a painting by Irish graffiti artist ‘Vincent Zara’ who has stenciled Rory’s image across his home country.

“All Around Man – Live In London” is a live album of unreleased material taken from a previously undocumented period of one of the greatest guitarists of all time. “All Around Man – Live In London” was recorded from the shows that supported Gallagher’s eleventh, and sadly, last studio album “Fresh Evidence” that was released in May 1990. This album features captivating live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1987 “Defender” album plus other career favourites.

In advance of these shows, in which this album’s recordings were taken, Gallagher had spent an unprecedented six months in the studio making “Fresh Evidence” (usually he was known for recording albums rapidly, sometimes in as little as two weeks!) and as a result Gallagher was at his live best, demonstrating his love and hunger for live performance and that raw energy.

To be released as double-CD and triple-LP sets, this exhilarating album is pulled from two nights at the Town & Country Club (now the The O2 Forum) in London in December 1990.
