Album Of The Day: Rory Gallagher – Tattoo

Rory Gallagher - Tattoo

Rory Gallagher had a very short career due to a tragic early death but still managed to write a hell of a lot of awesome songs and he managed to write this album whilst on tour for his third album and release it within a year and yet in my opinion, this contains some of his best work! His music and relaxed playing technique is quite similar to another blues rock hero whose life was cut short as well, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Going through many of the sub genres of blues this album contains Delta and Chicago blues, some jazz, straight up blues rock and even some riff based rock.

The best song on the album is probably ‘Livin’ Like A Trucker’

The full album is available here on Spotify
