Finish' was so titled because the album was originally delivered to
Chrysalis at the eleventh hour, just (and only just) making the deadline.Rory
began recording the material for the album in San Francisco but on completion
of those sessions he was unhappy with the results and decided to move the
project to Germany. Meantime, Rory had written more songs and returned
to the band line-up to a three piece, Ted McKenna on drums and Gerry McAvoy
of Rory's best work came from 'Photo Finish'. His "Fuel To The Fire"
has some of the tightest harmonising guitars and echos of his earlier classic
" A Million Miles Away". "Shadow Play" starts with a pile-driving
classic Gallagher guitar riff, this self doubting song gives us an insight
to Rory's double life, on and off stage, poetically described in the line
-'A little bit of Jekyll, a little bit of Hyde'.
Gallagher, London 1998
