An honest rendering of blues-infused rock

"It's hard to understate just how much Rory Gallagher's honest rendering of blues-infused rock are missed. Unlike many of his contemporaries, such as Eric Clapton, who softened their stance or others who embraced showboating over substance, Rory was always a denim and flannel poster child who drained every ounce of emotion from his guitar.His final studio session, "Fresh Evidence," again shows Rory to be on a mission to put his stamp on every style of blues. He succeeds better than one might imagine, in part to his skills, in part to his understanding of the music he loved, and in part to have a crack band surrounding him. It's hard to pick favorites among such diverse tracks as Kid Gloves, Heaven's Gate, The Loop, and Slumming Angel, but I might have to go with the ironically titled Ghost Blues because Rory, his long-time bassist Gerry McAvoy, and drummer Brendan O'Neil create a wall of sound so tight it might repel water.A few stumbles, notably The King of Zydeco, do not detract greatly from another excellent effort, and despite 20 plus years of mining the blues, Rory still found a way to keep things fresh and lively."
Seriously good blues!

"Is this Rory's best album? No. Is it a very high quality blues album? Oh, heck yes! In fact, Slumming Angel ranks as one of the best songs in his catalog. I dare say that you won't be disappointed in this album. Give it a try."
Another Great Album

"Somehow I missed out on Rory Gallagher's music until recently. After picking up his fantastic signature "Irish Tour" album, I began collecting more and more of his stuff. It's all good and this one is great too - six albums later and I've yet to be anything less than amazed by this great talent. In my opinion he is as good as anyone on guitar. All things Rory are good. If you are a fan and don't have "Fresh Evidence" yet - then get it!"
