Against the Grain album for sale Product Description

Against the Grain album for sale by Rory Gallagher was released Oct 09, 2012 on the Sony Music label. After releasing two albums in 1973 and a live, contract-fulfilling disc in 1974, Gallagher returned rested and recharged in 1975 with a new record label, Chrysalis, and a band with almost three years of hard touring under their belts. With its attention to detai, Against the Grain sounds more practiced and intricate than most of Gallagher's previous studio discs, but still includes some of his most powerful rockers. Against the Grain CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs.   ...See Full Description

5 stars Rory, 2 stars Buddah
Against the Grain CD music So true Timbo (see review below). I almost cried when I heard this remaster, remix. Thank goodness I still have my vinyl. Don't get me wrong, if you do not have the original mix, you need this offering! Its just .... well .... do the world a favor Buddah and try again!!!

Warning: Not only remastered but REMIXED
Against the Grain buy CD music I love most of the reissues in the Buddha Rory Remasters series. Against the Grain songs A few other releases in the series have also been remixed and, indeed, are marked as such. This one is not. Against the Grain was Rory's first album for Chrysalis and was marked by a bigger sound with lots of overdubs. As was almost always the case, Rory himself produced the original LP issue and for the first time he lavished the mix with a wealth of subtle guitar overbubs. I love the live, stripped-back sound of Rory's Polydor era work but also really love the "layered" approach he took with the original mix of this album. On Against the Grain Rory mixed his live intensity with well wrought, carefully placed guitar tones and a judicious use of reverb. Alas, much of Rory's careful work on the Buddha "remastered" reissue. Whole instrumental sections have been stripped away. New guitar and vocal tracks appear while others disappear. The glorious, carefully wrought harmonic ambience of songs like "Down in the Bottom" are completely gone, while other songs gain a few seconds of lead guitar. In any case, don't expect a version of the original album with clearer sound. Same album, radically-- and I mean radically-- different mix. And I sure miss that great shot of Rory's Start that graced the original cover, too! This one's worth having for the few minutes of previously unheard guitar passages here and there and for its less "wet", Deuce-style sound. However, don't give away the original CD issue!

Nice job RORY
Nice blend of styles on this album. Rory shows his maturity from his mastery of blues and rock. The acoustic 'Out on the Western Plains' is one of my favorite acoustic tunes and fits in well with the otherwise rowdy rock tunes.

"Aint Too Good", "Lost at Sea" and "Out on the Western Plain" are enough reason alone to buy this CD Against the Grain album for sale. If Ford marketed cars to the tune of "Souped-up Ford" they would be on top of the world right now. Do yourself a favor. Listen to the Stratocaster King.

The Chrysalis Years
Rory recorded 6 albums on Chrysalis (5 studio and 1 live) between '75 and '82. This is the first one. I'm being conservative in my ratings but quite frankly I think Rory was brilliant. It's not just his guitar play-ing but his lyrics and singing as well. Rory always delivered! This particular disc features the players first put together for the Blueprint album. After 3 albums and multiple tours together they are tight! The production, in my opinion, is a step up from the previous 2 studio albums as well. "Let Me In" kicks it off in fine fashion and it rolls on from there. "Bought and Sold" and "Out On The Western Plain" became live staples. "Souped Up Ford" and "I Take What I Want" are personal favorites. "Ain't Too Good" could have been a hit single but Rory never released singles. In any case if you like that musical place where rock and blues clearly cross I suspect you will enjoy this disc.
