Rory Gallagher – The Best Of: Crest Of A WaveRory Gallagher – The Best Of: Crest Of A Wave
Eagle Rock Entertainment, Aug 25, 2009

The 2-CD set lovingly—with great attention to detail—encapsulates the Irish blues-rock guitarist’s greatest solo studio recordings. This comprehensive release stands as the definitive statement to date of a true legend who was taken from us at age 47, in 1995. The Irish guitarist takes us to hard rock to sweet blues with lots of emotion and intensity on this 24 track, double CD. All the tracks are staples but the stand-outs include; A Million Miles Away, Crest of a Wave, Moonchild, Tattoo'd Lady, Walk On Hot Coals and They Don't Make Them Like You Anymore.

1.) Follow Me
2.) Skinkicker

4.) Bought & Sold
5.) Loanshark Blues
6.) In Your Town
7.) Calling Card
8.) A Million Miles Away
9.) Walk On Hot Coals
10.) I Fall Apart

CD 2:
1.) Bad Penny
2.) Overnight Bag
3.) Philby
4.) Shadow Play

7.) Edged In Blue
8.) Wheels Within Wheels
9.) Out On The Western Plain
10.) Out Of My Mind

This is a great follow-up to the DVD Live In Cork that was re-released earlier this year. While not the first greatest hits for Gallagher, this is a good and a fair representation of his solo career covering both the acoustic and heavy bluesy rock side of Rory.

Peace and Love
