Rory Gallagher: Reading 1980

Mix Rory's brilliant playing with an amazing sound and you get a fantastic recording.
This show occurred on August 23 on the Reading festival and the source is believed to be a BBC master! However there are songs missing from the set Rory played.
There's another version of this show, more complete but it is an audience source.


Sound quality: 9.5

Tracklist:
01. I Wonder Who
02. Follow Me
03. Wayward Child
04. Tattoo'd Lady
05. Bought And Sold
06. Country Mile
07. Hellcat
08. Out On The Western Plain
09. Too Much Alcohol
10. Going To My Hometown

Although the BBC have some amazing, historic concerts in their vaults, they weren't too "forward thinking" back in the day, and very rarely aired a full concert.. there were ALWAYS songs missing.. sometimes half the darn concert! GRRRRRR ;)

You're right, anyway this one even has 2 more tracks than the official live from this period, "Stage Stuck" which i absolutely love (had it on vinyl and now on CD).
