Rory Gallagher: new album "Check Shirt Wizard - Live In ‘77" March 6th

A new Rory Gallageher live album, Check Shirt Wizard - Live, will be released as a 2CD and 3LP set on March 6th. The tracks were recorded during his UK tour, promoting his 'Calling Card album, plus a wealth of material from his back catalog. The Irish blues guitarist thrived on stage. His best-selling albums were all recorded on the road:

This 20-song, previously unreleased, set is culled from four shows (London, Brighton, Sheffield and Newcastle) during an early 1977 tour across the UK in support of Rory’s then latest album 'Calling Card'. Featuring fantastic live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1975 'Against The Grain' album and other live favourites.

This new album has been mixed from the original multi track tapes from the Rory archive, which were recorded by the Rolling Stones and Jethro Tull’s mobile studios and mastered at Abbey Road.
