Released 3rd September via UMC
50th anniversary of Rory Gallagher’s eponymous debut solo album from 1971. The debut album features some of the most beloved Rory songs such as "I Fall Apart", "Laundromat" and "Just The Smile." While reviewing numerous tapes during the 2021 mixing sessions, two songs were added to the collection: the previously unreleased "At The Bottom," a track Rory ended up re-recording for his 1975 Against The Grain album, plus "Advision Jam," a rocking instrumental. The recording saw Rory Gallagher on guitar and lead vocals as well as alto sax, harmonica and mandolin, Gerry McAvoy on bass and Wilgar Campbell on drums. Atomic Rooster's Vincent Crane plays piano on two out of the 10 songs on the album "Wave Myself Goodbye" and "I'm Not Surprised."

The package contains a 32 page hardback book with unseen images, essays and memorabilia from the album recording and a poster.
