As promised there’s still more to share from Eagle Rock Entertainment’s “One More Rory” Tribute show held at The Iridium Jazz Club in NYC on May 23, 2011. Here are some excerpts of Jim Suhler’s set. Suhler, a member of George Thorogood’s Destroyers as well as his own Texas based band Monkey Beat, played Gallagher classics including “The Mississippi Sheiks”, “Bought and Sold”, “I Wonder Who”. He is backed by fellow Destroyer Jeff Simon on drums, Kenny Aaronson on bass guitar and Neal Evans of Soulive on organ.
Eagle Rock Entertainment has just announced the next installment of its Gallagher restoration with the June 14, 2011 release of Tattoo, Against The Grain and Calling Card. These three albums from the mid-seventies encompass many of his most beloved tunes and performances. I’m a sucker for his spin on Leadbelly’s “Out On the Western Plains”. I’m feeling the urge to get my plaid shirts out of mothballs.
