Albums include 'Against The Grain' (1975), 'Calling Card' (1976), 'Photo-Finish' (1978), 'Top Priority' (1979), and 'Jinx' (1982).

Picking up where Rory left off with the phenomenal 'Irish Tour '74' live album, the release of 1975s 'Against The Grain', found Rory at the top of his game and in sparkling form both in the studio and on stage. The next seven years saw the release of these five outstanding records.

Each reissue has been digitally re-mastered to stunning effect from the original ¼ inch tapes and features digitally restored original vinyl release album artwork, new booklet content and bonus tracks. All five albums will be released in the UK on October 1st for a limited period in deluxe digi-packaging.

Rory Gallagher was a musician like no other. He was, and still is, one of the world's greatest guitarists, singers, song writers and live showmen. His music lives on through generations of guitarists including Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Brian May, Johnny Marr and The Edge; and also through his amazing catalogue including some of his finest works included in this collection of releases.

Each of the five studio albums are now re-released in digipack form, with restored artwork based on the original first release cover art. The audio has been re-mastered from the original ¼ inch tapes. Each album includes exclusive sleeve notes, album reviews and rare photographs.

"Continuing on from last year's 40th Anniversary of Rory Gallagher's solo career, we're pleased to present his next five solo albums from 1975-1982," says Daniel Gallagher, Rory's nephew and producer of the reissues. "The interest in Rory's music is still so strong that we can continue to celebrate the man's music by re-issuing more of his studio albums. We're going back to the vinyl artwork and original 1/4" tapes so that they look and sound exactly as Rory intended. It's also great to see in a digital world that the demand for a physical copy of Rory's music means we can release these albums on vinyl for the first time in almost 40 years."

'Against The Grain' was originally released in 1975. This deluxe reissue features original release album reviews written by Cameron Crowe of Rolling Stone.

'Calling Card' was originally released in 1976. This deluxe reissue features an interview with 'Calling Card' producer and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, plus the previously unreleased track 'Where Was I Going To?'

'Photo-Finish' was originally released in 1978. This deluxe reissue features an album review written by David Fricke in Circus magazine in 1980, plus two bonus tracks.

'Top Priority' was originally released in 1979. This deluxe reissue features a CREEM magazine album review from 1980, plus two bonus tracks 'Hell Cat' and 'The Watcher'.

'Jinx' was originally released in 1982. The reissue boasts a review of the album originally published in Melody Maker, plus two bonus tracks 'Nothin' But The Devil' and 'Lonely Mile'.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.
