Surf's Up! 6/9/22
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rory Gallagher’s 'Deuce' sophomore solo album from 1971, a deluxe CD boxset will be released by UMC on Friday 30th September, of which the previously unreleased version of the legendary Irish Blues Rock guitarist's classic song, 'Crest Of A Wave (Alternative Take 2)', is today's surfing Video Of The Day. This extensive release digs deep into the Rory Gallagher Archives and will include a new mix of the original album, twenty-eight previously unreleased alternate takes, a six-song 1972 BBC Radio ‘In Concert’ and seven Radio Bremen radio session tracks. The package also contains a 64-page hardback book with a foreword by Johnny Marr of The Smiths, unseen images by the late Mick Rock, plus essays and memorabilia from the album recording. The 2CD and 3LP will be cut down versions from the deluxe box and there will be a special D2C 1LP of the 'BBC In Concert - Live at The Paris Theatre, 13 January 1972'.
