STUNNING LIVE 1978 BROADCAST FROM RORY GALLAGHER!
Released in October 1978, Rory Gallagher’s ninth solo-album, Photo Finish, marked a turning point in Gallagher's career. Most of the songs on the record were initially recorded on what was to be an earlier album, but Gallagher was unhappy with the recordings. He fired the drummer and keyboardist from his current band and replaced only the drummer, changing the band to a power trio as his original groups had been.
In the wake of the new release, Gallagher and his band went on tour, starting with dates in the USA. Among the finest shows the trio played on the tour was at Greenwich Village’s Bottom Line Club, a legendary music venue first opened in 1974.
The performance remains one of the best ever played by The Gallagher Band, and recorded as it was for live FM Radio Broadcast, is also one of the best quality live recordings around.
