Two Gallaghers hide another. No, Rory Gallagher is not the brother, nor the father, or even some distant cousin of Liam and Noel. Though over a couple of decades (the 70s and 80s) the Irish guitarist left his mark on the history of Anglo-Saxon music with a blues rock focus. He set out in 1970 at the Isle of Wight festival with his Taste trio and vintage Stratocaster, putting pop music back on the straight and narrow with the blues. His early records still have a folk-psych tinge that was in vogue at the time. Though he very quickly hardened his tone and simplified his sound… or the other way around. He’s the people’s guitar hero in a plaid shirt who plays with both power and grace. He’s a virtuoso who masters simplicity. He has the voice of a bluesman, channelling the magic of good, uncomplicated melodies. This extensive best-of album covers his whole discography, from Blister on the Moon with Taste in 1969 to the hauntingly beautiful Ghost Blues from his last album in 1990, not forgetting a load of tracks from his best period in the 70s. As for the rare gems, you’ll find a greasy version of the Rolling Stones’ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, sung in duet with Jerry Lee Lewis while they were in the studio together in 1973. Beware the Rory! © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than five years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Eric Clapton's stocking filler

A Christmas album (“Happy Xmas”) including an EDM version of “Jingle Bells”, “Lonesome Christmas” or a bluesier “White Christmas”: sound like a good idea? Well, Eric Clapton's gone and done it. After all, if even Bob Dylan has ridden roughshod over tradition (on “Christmas in the Heart”), why not "God" himself? This is far from the first time that the English musician, coming up on 74 years of age, has taken a step back from more or less traditional Blues, but this is something else...

The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.
