A collection of rare and unreleased recordings of Rory Gallagher playing strictly blues material titled Rory Gallagher Blues released back on May 31st. It contains previously unheard and unreleased tracks from Rory's archive, special guest sessions with legendary blues artists (Muddy Waters, Albert King), lost radio sessions and more. It's currently available for purchase as a deluxe 36-track 3CD version, 2LP version and standard CD version. Gallagher toured with Rush both as an opener and headliner back in 1974 and 1982 respectively, and Alex Lifeson was interviewed by as part of the album's promotional campaign. Rush released a short, 15-second teaser video of that interview on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but now the entire 10-minute interview is available for watching below or on YouTube. Lifeson discusses Rory's guitar playing, influence, personal nature, touring together and more.
