BRAND NEW ALBUM OUT MARCH 4TH FROM BMG HERITAGE FINDS ACCLAIMED IRISH GUITARIST EXPLORING FOLK AND ACOUSTIC INFLUENCES. U.S. release on March 18.
FIRST NEW ALBUM OF UNRELEASED MATERIAL IN THIRTEEN YEARS FEATURES CONTRIBUTIONS FROM BELA FLECK, MARTIN CARTHY, BERT JANSCH, LONNIE DONEGAN AND OTHERS
Rock guitar legend Rory Gallagher never made a secret of his love of folk music, often mixing up his hard-driving shows with a set of acoustic songs. Always claiming that he would treat his following to an album of such music one day, nearly eight years after his death June of 1995, this dream has become a reality. On March 4, BMG Heritage will release Rory, a new album compiled by Gallagher's brother Donal from material spanning his career.
Keenly aware of his brother's folk tastes, Donal set about shaping the album he considered Rory would want to have had. The record soon evolved into almost a tribute to Rory from the folk world, with contributions and collaborations from, Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, Ronnie Drew & The Dubliners, Juan Martin, Bela Fleck, Roland Van Campenhout, Maire Ni Chatasaigh & Chris Newman and Rory's early influence Lonnie Donegan. The diverse line-up underscores the eclectic collection of material, ranging from flamenco to Irish traditional to skiffle and American folk and blues.
The new album has even a further distinction, visually speaking. From works found, Rory had been planning to have a painted cover, or even a self portrait. Renowned artist David Oxtoby had previously refused all requests to paint an album cover, but his love and respect for Rory led him to accept this invitation.
BMG Heritage, a new label focusing on developing and marketing BMG catalog and archival repertoire, mines and exploits BMG's extensive century old catalog. BMG Heritage has catalog responsibilities for BMG-owned labels Arista, Buddha Records, RCA, RLG, Windham Hill, and Private Music.
