Deuce = 4 CD, Book Edition = (CD)
On the occasion of his 50th birthday, "Deuce", the second album by Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher, is released as a high-quality 50th Anniversary Edition. On his debut album, named after himself, Rory Gallagher had still tried to sound as polished and "cleaned up" as possible. "Deuce," however, was his first of numerous attempts to capture the wild energy of his live presence in the studio. Together with his band consisting of Gary McAvoy on bass and Wilgar Campbell on drums, the Irishman creates a powerful and wild blues rock sound, with the folk music of Gallagher's homeland shining through here and there. The album was neither a flop nor a commercial hit when it was released. But "Deuce" is still immensely popular not only among fans, even after half a century. Johnny Marr of The Smiths is a self-confessed fan of the album and wrote the foreword for the book accompanying the 50th Anniversary Edition. He thus joins a long list of distinguished guitarists who have professed to be admirers of Rory Gallagher and claim to have been influenced by him. Bryan May of Queen, by his own admission, cribbed his sound from Gallagher, he "brought Eric Clapton back to the blues," and when a bronze statue of the guitarist was unveiled in his hometown of Cork in 1997, The Edge of U2 was among those in attendance.
