RORY GALLAGHER - All Around Man : Live In London [Deluxe] (2023) - full

All Around Man : Live In London” is a 23-track double album of unreleased material taken from a previously undocumented period of one of the greatest guitarists of all time: RORY GALLAGHER. Known for his virtuoso guitar playing, which strongly influenced other guitarists such as Sir Brian May and Slash. Rory was listed as the 57th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine and the Greatest Irish Music Artist by Irish Radio. He was an incredible producer too.
To be released on the 7th of July as double-CD and triple-LP sets, this exhilarating album is pulled from two nights at the Town & Country Club (now the The O2 Forum) in London in December 1990.
‘All Around Man – Live In London’ was recorded from the shows that supported Gallagher’s eleventh, and sadly, last studio album ‘Fresh Evidence’ that was released in May 1990. This album features captivating live versions of tracks from that album as well as songs from the 1987 ‘Defender’ LP plus other career favourites.
This recording has been mixed from the recently found multi-tracks and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.

Rory Gallagher’s live performances are a thing of legend, he was an artist that came alive when onstage, and as a result some of his most successful albums are his live ones, such as ‘Live! In Europe’ and ‘Irish Tour ’74’.
In advance of these shows, in which this album’s recordings were taken, Gallagher had spent an unprecedented six months in the studio making ‘Fresh Evidence’ (he was known for recording albums rapidly, sometimes in as little as two weeks!) and as a result Gallagher was at his live best, demonstrating his love and hunger for live performance and the recordings on ‘All Around Man – Live In London’ are testament to that raw energy.
