Top Priority 

Rory Gallagher’s 10th is released on September 16, 1979. On the heels of his hugely successful “Photo-Finish” world tour, his then record label, Chrysalis let it slip that his next album would be a “top priority.” Gallagher took the music back to the basics — the blues rock that put him on the map as one of the most prolific guitarists of his era.
