RORY GALLAGHER

PHOTO-FINISH

1LP
Rory Gallagher's seventh solo album, originally released in 1978, proved that he was still on the case as much as in the seven years before. It was also a return to the power trio band from the early days.

This rock-solid album saw Gallagher going back to basics, stripping down to just three musicians again. Photo-Finish, basically consisting of re-recorded versions of the tracks that were recorded earlier in San Francisco for an album that got shelved because he wasn't happy with those versions, is in-your-face and full of energy.

Highlights include groover "The Mississippi Sheiks",  hard rocker "Early Warning" and "Cruise On Out", a high octane stomper that gets even the most unwilling listener barefootin'. The album title hints at the fact that the newly recorded tracks were handed to the record company just in time for the deadline, after a two year gap due to his decision to pull the earlier version of the record (and also due to an injury to his hand).
