Iíve been hearing some good music on satellite radio lately from bands I never heard before. Rory Gallagher, Ten Years After and Charlie Musselwhite had songs I really liked. The Charlie Musselwhite song had no lyrics, but it was a nice, long bluesy jam. Ten Years After sounded very Zeppelinesque, and the guy on vocals sounded nice. And Rory Gallagher sounds like my type of blues. I was thinking about picking up some new cds, but was wondering if anybody would recommend some good cds to start with from these bands. I havenít heard much about the new Clapton cd, and thatís been on my priority list too.

There's actually a ton artists I've been impressed with lately, which made me realize how terrible "regular" radio was. I guess I had prematurely judged many bands and artists based on the same two or three songs I heard a thousand times over the past 20 years. Oh well, better late than never.

There are plenty of good Rory records, but start with the live stuff.
Irish Tour 74 and live in Europe are great, and what I'd recommend as far as cds go.

If you're in to concert dvds, the Live in Montreaux is first rate, and showcases performances from Rory's entire solo career,

I really like Ten Years After, but it's harder to recommend a first cd to buy, in part because most of their lps are a little uneven (imho). Maybe someone can recommend a best of collection.

I personally liake Undead the best, but Cricklewood Green and A Space in Time are excellent as well.

Are you familiar with Savoy Brown? Based on the bands you're getting turned on to, you might like their 60s/early 70s albums as well.

thresher, I'm still discovering new music (and old music) after listening for 30 years. Internet/satellite radio is wonderful, ain't it? Makes me break out into song

"Turn up your radio and let me hear the song
Switch on your electric light
Then we can get down to what is really wrong...
Turn it up, turn it up, little bit higher, radio
Turn it up, thats enough, so you know its got soul
Radio, radio turn it up, hum
La, la, la, la..."

"The new Clapton CD" is really a JJ Cale CD that happens to have Clapton on it.

Ten Years After is awesome! Like Moid said the albums can be up and down. They are definately a better live band!

I would go with:

Anthology (1967-1971)

Recorded Live

Live At The Fillmore East

Yes it does, but a warning for those who haven't heard this new disc yet...Derek Trucks as a sparingly used session guitarist is something quite different than what we're used to.

Don't get me wrong, good CD.

But do you notice how he lights up each and every song he's on? My first listen through was dotted with "there's Derek!" comments. His playing may be used sparingly, but he is featured nicely when he's on a track.

he serves the song, and serves it quite tastefully!

Rory Gallagher put out so great stuff. Anything you can pick up from him is a good listen.
