more practiced & intricate than most of gallagher's previous work, this ’75 album serves a well-rounded menu of country, delta blues & blues-rock.

the supercharged 'souped-up ford', where rory howls & wails, with his voice & smoking slide, & 'all around man', an urgent blues rocker that begins with gallagher screaming & crying together with just his electric guitar until the band kicks in with a stop-start blues rhythm, are 2 of the definitive moments. 'bought & sold' adds congas to the mix to bring a more rootsy & even jazzy feel to rory's table, but it's on the acoustic tracks (such as his version of leadbelly's 'out on the western plain') where the guitarist & his band really lay into the groove.
