Rory Gallagher is the first solo album by Irish blues rock musician Rory Gallagher, released in 1971. It marked his departure from Taste. He decided on two Belfast musicians; drummer Wilgar Campbell, and bass guitarist Gerry McAvoy to be the core of his new power trio band.
A popular choice from the new BLUES album is Rory's acoustic slide interpretation of his own song 'Secret Agent' recorded in 1977 for RTE programme 'Me & My Music'. 149. From the vaults of the Rory Gallagher archive comes Blues, a collection of rare and mostly unreleased recordings of Rory playing his favourite blues material.
In this respect Gallagher was an early model for Eric Clapton, whose solo career followed a similar path. Interestingly, Gallagher seems rather restrained throughout his debut, holding back the fret-burning in favor of strong songs. He opens up on the album's jazzy, seven-minute finale "Can't Believe It's You" which even features an alto sax, an instrument Gallagher all but abandoned on later albums.
Rory toured with Rush both as an opener and headliner back in 1974 and 1982 respectively, and Alex Lifeson of Rush was interviewed by MusicVaultz. com on Rory's guitar playing, infl Cork Rocks For Rory - Saturday June 8th!!

Enter Rory Gallagher (1948 - 1995). The irishman certainly does not have to shy away from being compared to any of the big guns that I was talking about earlier. In fact, he was highly regarded by his fellow musicians, and certainly inspired many of them. But I'm pretty sure, many of you have never even heard of him and if you did, you will most likely know about that one Live album („Irish Tour 74 ) and little else. Then I finally came across the self-titled debut album by Rory Gallagher (who played shortly in the bluesrock outfit „taste before he decided to go solo). On this album, as well as an on many albums to come, he's accompanied by Gerry McAvoy (bass) and Wilgar Campbell (drums). Supported by these two, Gallagher invites the audience on a ride through his heart and soul, and it's a enjoyable ride indeed.
