The first six Rory Gallagher albums are been re-issued. Daniel Gallagher, Rory’s nephew, is the producer. They have used the original original 1/4" tapes.

Sony Music in association with Capo Records and Legacy are proud to re-issue the first six original Rory Gallagher albums in chronological release date order – “Rory Gallagher” (1971), “Deuce” (1971), “Live In Europe!” (1972), “Blueprint” (1973), “Tattoo” (1973) and “Irish Tour ’74” (1974). These seminal re-issued albums celebrate 40 years since the start of Rory’s solo career.

The Irish blues guitar maestro died of complications of a live transplant in 1995. Four of the six albums contain bonus tracks. Each album includes exclusive sleeve notes written by his brother (and former tour manager) Donal Gallagher, photographer Mick Rock, and British journalist Roy Hollingworth. The albums will be available on CD, digital download and vinyl.
