On May 17th, via Eagle Rock Entertainment, late Irish blues rock guitar legend Rory Gallagher will see a previously unreleased double CD offering in stores entitled "Notes From San Francisco".
Unavailable until now, these are rare studio sides by Gallagher that have now been unearthed. In 1977, six years into his solo career, the guitarist laid down the tracks with bassist Gerry McAvoy, keyboardist Lou Martin, drummer Rod de’Ath, violinist Joe O’Donnell and saxophonist Martin Fiero only to have the album in question shelved.
Disc #2 consists of a 1979 power trio live show at The Old Waldorf in San Francisco with bassist McAvoy and drummer Ted McKenna.
