«There was one day when I was playing along with the Deuce album which
was a complete turning point for me as a guitar player»
– Johnny Marr

Released in November 1971, just six months after his eponymous solo debut, Rory Gallagher’s second album, Deuce, was the summation of all that he’d promised in the wake of Taste’s collapse. Rory wanted to capture the feeling of a live performance, so he would look to record immediately after live concerts while keeping production to a minimum.

He chose Tangerine Studios, a small reggae studio, in Dalston in East London, due it’s history with legendary producer Joe Meek. With Gerry McAvoy on bass guitar and Wilgar Campbell on drums, the album was engineered by Robin Sylvester and produced by Rory. Deuce features many Rory highlights, from the blistering Crest Of A Wave to the Celtic-infused I’m Not Awake Yet.

When asked «How does it feel to be the best guitarist in the world,»
Jimi replied, «I don’t know, why don’t you go and ask Rory Gallagher.»

Jimi Hendrix

«There are a million guys who sound like Stevie Ray Vaughan, but I never heard
anybody who could really pull off sounding like Rory Gallagher.»

Slash

«As soon as I heard Cradle Rock, I was hooked. I thought,
‘This is what I want to be when I grow up’.»

Joe Bonamassa

«I really liked Rory, he was fine guitarist and singer and lovely man.»
– 
Jimmy Page

«He was a magician. He’s one of the very few people of that time who could make his guitar do anything it seemed. It just seemed to be magic. I remember looking at that battered Stratocaster and thinking «how does that come out of there?» 
– 
Brian May

«A beautiful man and an amazing guitar player.»
– The Edge

«An amazing player, very spirited. Rory had a particular sound using
that Stratocaster and he really got it because of the brute force in the
way that he played. He just had such a passion about it.»
 
– Joe Satriani
