A blues-rock classic from the other side of the Atlantic, Rory Gallagher's 1973 outing, BLUEPRINT, stands out as one of the Irish guitarist/singer's finest studio recordings (Some fans argue that his concert albums, particularly IRISH TOUR, outshine his other records). Opening with the one-two punch of the appropriately searing "Walking on Hot Coals" and the dynamic "Daughter of the Everglades," the album presents the revered six-stringer in top form, and supported by a tight backing band that includes keyboardist/guitarist Lou Martin. Although Gallagher easily astounds with his blistering electric playing, he also showcases his considerable acoustic skills on tracks such as "Banker's Blues" and "Unmilitary Two-Step," which both nod to old-fashioned rural blues and provide a platform for his raspy-voiced emoting. Combined with TATTOO, released later that year, BLUEPRINT presents Gallagher at the peak of his mid-'70s powers, and reinforces his status as one of the most underrated blues-guitar heroes.
