RORY GALLAGHER - Meeting With The G-Man+ (2003)

Meeting with the G-Man+ is the RCA CD reissue of a live 1993 date in which the late Irish blues-rocker Rory Gallagher, late in his life, tore down the house in front of a large, completely unhinged, and adoring crowd. The beauty of this date is simply that Gallagher was still writing and recording new material and showcasing it on tour; he refused to be complacent and go the route of many of the guitar heroes of his generation by simply doing live shows comprised of hits. Therefore, much of the material here was new at the time, though a few classics are tossed in as well: killer versions of "Messin' with the Kid," "Ghost Blues," and "Mean Disposition." The 2003 CD reissue includes a complete remastering job, and includes no less than six previously unreleased acoustic performances placed in the center of the album -- the order they took in the set list -- almost doubling its length. While the recording itself is raw and immediate, it is never less than full-on in spectrum, making for an unusually high-quality, raucous gig that captured the guitarist at full power. Highly recommended.

Live collection from the late, great bluesman recorded at the Paradiso in Amsterdam on 12-20-1993. 'Meeting With The G-Man' is an expanded version of this 'bootleg' gig that was previously only available in the 2001 box-set 'Let's Go To Work' & features 14 tracks including 6 extra tracks, 'She Moved Through The Fair', 'Out On The Western Plain', 'William Of Green', 'Mercy River', 'Walking Blues' & Don't Think Twice It's Alright'. - cduniverse.com
