Ghost Blues The Story Of Rory Gallagher 2-DVD Set

Ghost Blues The Story Of Rory Gallagher 2-DVD Set This superb two-disc DVD set tells for the first time the complete and fully authorized story of Rory Gallagher. On disc one, Ghost Blues follows Rory's life and career from his upbringing in Cork, his early days with a show band, the brief success of his band Taste and then his legendary solo career leading up to his health problems in later life and tragic death at the age of just 47. There are archive interviews, both audio and visual, with Rory and contributions from many of his friends and admirers including his brother Donal, Bob Geldof, The Edge, Cameron Crowe, Slash, Johnny Marr, James Dean Bradfield, Ronnie Drew, Bill Wyman, Martin Carthy, band members Ted McKenna and Gerry McAvoy and many more.

Disc two, The Beat Club Sessions 1971-1972 then shows what Rory Gallagher was really all about - a magnificent live performer. Drawn from three different appearances on the German TV series Beat Club, this disc contains over 90 minutes of previously unreleased live performances which ably illustrate why he inspired so many of the musicians who pay tribute to him in Ghost Blues.
