Rory Gallagher / Check Shirt Wizard: Live in ’77 / 2CD or 3LP sets

Previously unreleased live performances • Newly mixed


A new live set from the late Irish blues guitarist and songwriter Rory Gallagher is on the way in March. Check Shirt Wizard: Live in ’77 is culled from four shows (London, Brighton, Sheffield and Newcastle) and features 20 previously unreleased live performances.

Gallagher was on tour in support of his latest album Calling Card and the the performances feature live versions of tracks from that album as well as 1975’s Against The Grain and others.

The original performances were recorded to multi-track tape allowing this release to be newly mixed and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.

The distinctive cover painting used for the cover of Check Shirt Wizard is by a young Irish graffiti artist Vincent Zara who has stencilled Rory’s image across his home country. This is being released as a 2CD set or a well-priced triple vinyl package.

Check Shirt Wizard: Live in ’77 will be released on 6 March 2020.
