Rory at the BBC
From the earliest days of Rory's musical odyssey, the BBC played an important part in his musicianship.

Some of my earliest memories are of Rory 'surfing' the radio to access blues and jazz programs of the day, not coming out to play in the morning because of Saturday Club (the radio 'Old Grey Whistle Test' of it's time) and rushing home from school for the four o'clock program which devoted thirty minutes of music to a different group each week.

The young Rory considered these shows to be an acid test of the performer's musical proficiency, keenly listening to hear how far a band would deviate from their recordings and to the real depth of their repertoire.

From the outset the 'In Concert' disc reminds one of just how Rory excelled when before an audience. Beginning with the subtle, measured, perfect rendition of "Calling Card" (this has to be the definitive version), Rory's musical train quickly builds speed and by "Country Mile" this locomotive generates a head of steam that rockets right through to the electrifying finale, "Cruise On Out". This session was recorded at the now defunct 'Venue Club' and produced a particularly memorable moment. During the final number, due to the intense heat from the audience coupled with the unstoppable energy on stage plus some over zealous lighting, Ted McKenna's drum caught fire, giving the crowd an impromptu pyrotechnic display!

I consider my brother was the finest virtuoso on the electric guitar. Coupled with his song writing talent (and always in the company of first class musicians), his instrumental performances and those passionate melodic vocals came honest and true from the heart of this magnificent man.
