Title - 'Crest of a Wave: The Best of Rory Gallagher'
Artist - Rory Gallagher

For a career that was cut short by illness and a premature death, guitarist, singer, and songwriter Rory Gallagher sure accomplished a lot in the blues music world. Although Gallagher didn't tour the U.S. nearly enough, spending most of his time in Europe, he was known for his no-holds-barred, marathon live shows at clubs and theaters around the United States.

Also, some of Gallagher's best work on record wasn't under his own name; it's stuff he recorded with Muddy Waters on The London Sessions (Chess, 1972) and with Albert King on Live (RCA/Utopia). Gallagher made his last U.S. tours in 1985 and 1991, and admitted in interviews that he'd always been a guitarist who fed off the instant reaction and feedback a live audience can provide.

But, with that all said, this is yet another Rory Gallagher collection, a 2-CD set now, and is a very good representation of his solo career, to be fair. Covering both the acoustic and heavy blues/rock side of Rory, long-time fans will not need this collection, let's be honest!

Indeed, those just simply curious or unfamiliar with Gallagher's body of work will get a huge look into his life here with these tracks. Tracks that 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.
