The Competition To Find The Best Rory Gallagher Live Album
There are some early live recordings of Rory Gallagher with his band, Taste including his performance at the Isle Of Wight Festival in 1970 when, some say, he blew Jimi Hendrix off the stage and Live Taste in the same year..
In the early seventies after branching out on his own, he continued playing blues rock and recorded two highly acclaimed live albums, Rory Gallagher Live In Europe and Irish Tour.
He then changed direction and reduced the blues and emphasised the rock side of his performances and recorded Stagestruck.

My Thoughts On The Results Of The Rory Gallagher Live Album Poll
Originally voters could only select one album but with the release of more live albums, I increased the selection to two.
At #1 is Irish Tour from 1974.
It is an excellent album and the place to start if you like blues rock.
At #2 is Live In Europe.
This is the place to start if you prefer blues to blues rock.
At #3 is the more hard rock album, Stage Struck.
Provided sound quality is good, it’s hard to go wrong with Rory Gallagher live in concert but his style changed over the years which should affect your choice.
