Rory Gallagher

An recently unearthed Rory Gallagher studio album bundled with an live disc finally sees the light of day Gallagher recorded the studio tracks for Notes From San Francisco in November 1997 in San Francisco, but wasn't happy with the resu;ts and the recordings were shelved.

In November 1977, after completing a 6 month world tour, Rory Gallagher and his band flew straight from their last show in Japan to San Francisco to begin working on a new album, with famed American producer Elliot Mazer (Neil Young - 'Harvest', Janis Joplin - 'Cheap Thrills', The Band - 'The Last Waltz'). Mazer recalls that the sessions grew "tense", as Gallagher wasn't happy with the mixing process, describing them as "too complicated", and by the end of January 1978 he shelved the whole record and broke up his band of the past 5 years.
