Daniel Gallagher, Rory’s Nephew and producer of the re-issues states, "It's fantastic that 40 years since the original release of these albums the interest in Rory's music is still so strong and vibrant that we can celebrate the man's music by re-issuing his first six classic solo albums. We've aimed to release them in the spirit of the original release by 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 over 30 years.” 
 
The new editions of Rory Gallagher (1971), Deuce (1971), Live In Europe! (1972), Blueprint (1973), Tattoo (1973) and Irish Tour ’74 (1974) are out now.
