If you like rock, blues and great guitar playing, and are unfamiliar with Irish Rocker Rory Gallagher, just push play! While touring for his second album in 1973 Gallagher wrote these 9 vintage hard punching originals that would make up his brilliant classic set titled Tattoo. Out of the box Tattoo’d Lady and Cradle Rock, followed by some fine delta slide with 20:20 Vision and Who’s That Coming. This record jams from start to finish, bound tightly by Lou Martin’s keyboards and hard pounding Rod de’Ath drums. The expanded remastered set closes with an acoustic waltz Tucson, Arizona and the Rosco Gordon blues classic Just a Little Bit.

Tattoo clocks in at just under one hour.
