50th anniversary of Rory Gallagher's eponymous debut solo album from 1971. The debut album features some of the most beloved Rory songs such as "I Fall Apart", "Laundromat" and "Just The Smile." While reviewing numerous tapes during the 2021 mixing sessions, two songs were added to the collection: the previously unreleased "At The Bottom," a track Rory ended up re-recording for his 1975 Against The Grain album, plus "Advision Jam," a rocking instrumental. The recording saw Rory Gallagher on guitar and lead vocals as well as alto sax, harmonica and mandolin, Gerry McAvoy on bass and Wilgar Campbell on drums. Atomic Roosters Vincent Crane plays piano on two out of the 10 songs on the album "Wave Myself Goodbye" and "Im Not Surprised."

Rory had not played live since his previous band Taste disbanded on October 24, 1970. When Rorys eponymous solo album was released in May 1971, he embarked on a 16-date UK tour that included 10 days touring Ireland and a short jaunt in Switzerland. Recorded at the legendary Advision Studios in Fitzrovia, London, Rorys eponymous debut album showcases the Irish guitarist as a multi-faceted interpreter of the blues with a cross-section of the blues from acoustic to heavy blues soul. Advision was one of the hottest recording studios in the 60s and 70s, and home of classic albums recorded by The Yardbirds, The Who, The Move, T. Rex, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Elton John, Slade, Gentle Giant, Gerry Rafferty, and many more. If ever there was a "musicians musician," then that accolade belongs to Rory Gallagher. Renowned for his blistering live performances and highly respected for his dedication to his craft, he died in 1995, aged just 47.

Rorys timeless reputation has continued to flourish in the years since. Indeed, some of rocks most seminal figures, from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton, Joe Satriani to Joe Bonamassa, Queens Brian May to The Smiths Johnny Marr, Slash of Guns N Roses to the Edge of U2, have cited him as an influence. Rory remains a touchstone for all would-be guitar heroes in the 21st Century.

4CD/DVD - Deluxe boxset of the album is presented which includes a new mix of the original album, thirty previously unheard out / alternate takes, a six song 1971 BBC Radio John Peel Sunday Concert, and four BBC radio session tracks. Also included is a 40-minute DVD of Rory's first ever solo concert which was filmed in Paris, France for the ‘Pop Deux' TV show. The package contains a 32 page hardback book with unseen images, essays and memorabilia from the album recording and a poster.
