Back on my stompin' ground (Rory Gallagher) (LP 82)

Rory Gallagher Irish Tour '74 (Vinyl + CD - Polydor/BMG, 1974) *****

Genre: Irish rock

Places I remember: Sounds Unlimited (Newmarket)

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: Cradle Rock

Gear costume: Too Much Alcohol, As The Crow Flies

Rebranded for CD
Active compensatory factors: A classic is a work of art of recognized and established value. 

Rory's amazing guitar virtuosity is best displayed over the three live sides of this extraordinary album (the fourth side of jams adds to the experience but isn't as essential as the previous three sides).

This is classic rock in the best definition of 'classic'!

Where do they all belong? At the pinnacle of the Rory Gallagher collection.
