50th-anniversary reissue of Rory Gallagher's 1971 sophomore solo album, Deuce. The 3 LP set includes a new mix of the original album, plus a cutdown of previously unreleased alternate takes and 7 session tracks from Germany's Radio Bremen. (Also available in a Deluxe 4-CD version, and a 2 CD version.)


Released in November 1971, just six months after his eponymous solo debut, Rory Gallagher’s second album, Deuce, was the summation of all that he’d promised in the wake of Taste’s collapse. Rory wanted to capture the feeling of a live performance, so he would look to record immediately after live concerts while keeping production to a minimum.

He chose Tangerine Studios, a small reggae studio, in Dalston in East London, due it’s history with legendary producer Joe Meek. With Gerry McAvoy on bass guitar and Wilgar Campbell on drums, the album was engineered by Robin Sylvester and produced by Rory. Deuce features many Rory highlights, from the blistering Crest Of A Wave to the Celtic-infused I’m Not Awake Yet.


“There was one day when I was playing along with the Deuce album which

was a complete turning point for me as a guitar player”
