taste

At the end of August, Universal Music will issue I’ll Remember, an archival box set featuring the music of Taste, the Irish rock/blues band formed in the mid sixties that featured Rory Gallagher on guitar and vocals.

The four disc set will feature both studio albums (1969’s Taste and the 1970 follow-up On The Boards) expanded with many alternate versions of album tracks. The third CD is full of live audio from 1970 culled from concerts in Stockholm and London while the final disc adds demos, rare single cuts and more live material.

I’ll Remember is due for release on 28 August 2015.

  1. Richard says:

    This is incorrect: “culled from concerts in Stockholm and Paris” it should be Stockholm and London (Paris Theatre London).

  2. Lennie says:

    Rory’s solo deserves a major box set too. I’d like to see 6 CD’s and a DVD.

  3. Stephen Garrison says:

    Compressed to death?Or will we actually be allowed dynamic range?

  4. John says:

    Liking this a lot but not the UK Amazon price shown £36 for 4 discs.

  5. Steve Ferguson says:

    Any idea as the whether the content has been remastered? Their first two albums are faves.

  6. Gary Thompson says:

    As far as I’m aware this is the first time the Major Minor single has appeared on a legit CD release – if so it’s about time. I’ve had 2 copies over the years as I wore the first one out!

  7. Fat Old Bloke says:

    Hope the 1st album was remixed, sound is poor

    • Hammer says:

      NO, the first album has fine sound. It’s just raw, straight to the boards, like Rory wanted it. “Sugar Mama” is full of dynamics in the sound – “Hail” sounds awesome. And so on.

  8. Fat Old Bloke says:

    I had hoped there would be a DVD included of Isle Of Wight and German TV footage. Oh well, maybe at another time?

    Isle Of Wight has one of my all time favourite live songs ‘Sinner Boy’ absolutely riveting.

  9. LedMan says:

    I’m very interested in this set however as has already been mentioned if it’s compressed to death then it will just sit on my shelf. I’ll wait to read reviews before I purchase. I’m not expecting audiophile sound but decent sound is not too much to ask for when purchasing music.

  10. Neil Morgan says:

    Taste Isle Of Wight DVD to be released. Over an hours worth of band plus backstage footage. Donal explains at Ballyshannon Festival opening ceremony, at about 9 minutes. youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xu_M6Zuscm0

  14. blues_ken says:

    I wonder if it will be available through Amazon USA or if I’ll have to buy it overseas like I did for the Irish Tour ’74 box
