Rory's album 'Defender' was released on this day in 1987. Of all my albums, ‘Defender’’s my absolute favourite, purely because it was blood on the tracks. That album had to be done without any help or assistance. It's the usual Barry Manilow quote, I really put a lot of myself into the album. It's not going to change the world, it says what it means and it means what it says. From the vaults of the Rory Gallagher archive comes Blues, a collection of rare and mostly unreleased recordings of Rory playing his favourite blues material. to/Blues Ranging from never heard before tracks to special guest sessions with legendary blues artists like Muddy Waters and Albert King plus lost radio sessions, this album uncovers Rory’s love of the blues throughout his solo career from 1971 right through.

Released five years after his last effort (an eternity for the prolific Irish blues guitar slinger who had been churning out at least an album a year throughout the '70s), Defender is another quality blues-rock offering. Although Gallagher is in fine tough form here and it was his debut release for his own indie label, there is little difference between this and some of his less stellar '70s albums like Top Priority and Photo-Finish.
