What loofery said, and there's a DVD of that as well

Top Priority is one of my favorites Albums

There's a another DVD of his live performances
Well worth the price of admission

He's done a lot of great stuff
I have a boat load of bootleg stuff, so tryin to
recommend something is like....where do I begin

razeregal,

Rory didn't make a bad record, although some are better than others.

Rory had several distinct periods -

- Taste
- Solo as a trio (Early)
- Solo with a quartet (Lou Martin on Piano and organ)
- Solo - Heavier trio (Later)

All had some great music. My favorite period was with keys - Blueprint, Tattoo, Irish tour 74, Against the Grain, Calling Card, Photo-finish

The Taste material is superb, as is his early solo trio work. Top Priority is blistering heavier record that has some excellent playing.

Top Priority/Jinx/Defender are probably the heavy period albums - 3 years later he recorded Fresh Evidence - Rory returns to his more bluesy side - it ranks amongst my favourites. Also check out the Rockpalast DVD - and the Live in Cork dvd is fantastic.

Irish Tour, Live in Europe, and Top Priority is a good place to start. The Montreux video is cool too.

Sorry.....buy them all,but make it vinyl when possible! The comment about the different periods is right on!I particularly like the acoustic side of Rory,but the early Taste is so earthy and always honest.

The three live discs get my vote: Irish Tour, Live in Europe, Stagestruck. I also like the Rockpalast DVD.

Montreaux DVD has some great stuff. Love the first self titled Taste album. 'Live in Europe' great too. Some of the studio albums are a little iffy IMO - not usually his best stuff. Had greatest hits package last year assembled by his brother that was pretty good. Don't recall the title.
