    ...Rory was a LOT better player, than he's given credit for. Seems, in most "Top 100 polls" he's ranked
    about mid way. IMHO, he should be nearer the top level, than that!...

    One of my very first replies ever in the Gibson Forum was concerning 'Underrated Guitarists' or something when someone had mentioned Rory Gallagher.

    This came as a huge surprise to me and I said something along the lines of 'I don't know of a single person who underrates R. G. as a guitarist' to be informed that, contrary to his appreciation in the UK (in his day), Rory was all but unknown in the US primarily because he didn't play the 'Star' game / card which was the usual practice if you wanted to 'Make It Big In America'.

    Which, neatly enough, brings us right back to 'Notes From San Francisco' and 'Shadow Play'...

    Sadly missed.

    ...I've come in here multiple times over the years excited about one guitar over another, and it wasn't always Gibson...

    That's the understatement of the thread!

    Let's remind ourselves of - and introduce newer members to - one of your previous (12 page) efforts to denigrate and insult 99% of Gibson Les Paul owners in the Gibson Les Paul forum;

    FWIW I think the mods have dealt with this thread with consummate skill.

    ...I can't imagine Rory in a setting other than the trio.... Rory + Gerry + any drummer = awesome. What a master of the Strat...

    I know what you mean.
    Oddly enough the De'Ath / Martin lineup along with Gerry McAvoy was my first taste (pun) of Gallagher as it was this four-piece who recorded the maginficent "Irish Tour '74" but I do prefer him with a three-piece.
    As far as studio albums go I think 'Photo Finish' is his best but he was always better as a live act.
