To dovetail the September 30th release of Rory Gallagher’s “Deuce – 50th Anniversary Edition Box Set,” the Rory Gallagher Archives and UMC have today premiered the official music video for “Crest of A Wave – Alt. Take 2” on YouTube.
The video, made in partnership with the Rory Gallagher Archives, and Fionn Rogers, a filmmaker based on the West Coast of Ireland, features over 28 professional and amateur Irish surfing enthusiasts, was filmed in Donegal, Sligo, Mayo, Clare, and the cliffs of Moher.
Rory Gallagher’s “Deuce” 50th Anniversary Edition boxset of his 1971 sophomore album, features rarities including two rare tracks that are now available to stream, including the never-before-released “Crest Of A Wave” (Alt. Take 2) and “Used To Be (50th Anniversary Edition), both of which can be streamed via https://RoryGallagher.lnk.to/COAW-alt. Rory Gallagher’s “Deuce” 50th Anniversary Edition deluxe boxset is available to pre-order from https://RoryGallagher.lnk.to/Deuce_50.
The extensive celebratory release digs deep into the Rory Gallagher Archives and will include a new mix of the original album, twenty-eight previously unreleased alternate takes, a six-song 1972 BBC Radio ‘In Concert’, and seven Radio Bremen radio session tracks. The package will contain a 64-page hardback book with a foreword by Johnny Marr of The Smiths, unseen images by the late Mick Rock, essays, and memorabilia from the album recording. The 2CD and 3LP will be cut down versions from the deluxe box and there will be a special D2C 1LP of the “BBC In Concert – Live at The Paris Theatre, 13 January 1972.”
“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”
