Sony Music in association with Capo Records and Legacy have announced plans to re-issue the first six original Rory Gallagher albums in chronological release date order – "Rory Gallagher" (1971), "Deuce" (1971), "Live! In Europe" (1972), "Blueprint" (1973), "Tattoo" (1973) and "Irish Tour ’74" (1974). These six re-issued albums celebrate 40 years since the birth of Rory’s solo career.
Each of the six milestone albums were released during Rory's most prolific years (1971-74), when he recorded and produced them in the short space of three years. The albums are re-released in digipack form, with newly restored original cover art. The audio has been re-mastered from the original ¼” inch tapes. Each album includes exclusive sleeve notes personally written by Rory’s brother and former tour manager Donal Gallagher, journalist Roy Hollingworth, and legendary rock photographer Mick Rock.
