  • The resurrected Buddha acquired the rights to much of Rory Gallagher's prime material in 1999. They began their reissue program with his first two albums, then they moved to what most hardcore fans would consider the crown jewel of the series, a double-disc collection of Gallagher's BBC sessions. Like most lead guitarists (at least those of his generation), he would often expand his music when playing live, turning in vibrant, exciting versions of his material, peppered with great guitar solos. Although it lacks the kinetic spark generated whenever a musician performs in front of a live audience, BBC Sessions is one of the finest live sets in his catalog, thanks to its crystalline fidelity, strong performances, and classy presentation. Certainly, this collection isn't for anyone that isn't already devoted to Gallagher, but for those who are, there's plenty to cherish here -- individual solos, impassioned vocals, and good liner notes. It's an excellent, worthy addition to his catalog, and it helps confirm Gallagher's gift as a blues-rock guitarist. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Q (5/00, p.125) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Makes both a fine sampler and a de facto greatest hits package..."

Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.126) - "...the impact of a truly definitive set: 2 hours of Rory's most inspired and/or best performances for the corporation, painstakingly reconstructed and sequenced....A sparkling collection, both sonically and musically, imaginative and compelling."
