Rory Gallagher plays 'Too Much Alcohol' live in studio.

Blues-rock musician and singer Rory Gallagher featured on this episode of 'Me and My Music'.  The series featured singers and songwriters of the seventies, talking about the music business and performing some of their songs. 

Here Rory Gallagher gives an acoustic version of ‘Too Much Alcohol’ by JB Hutto.  The song featured on his sixth album ‘Irish Tour ‘74’.

This evening it’s acoustic music, nice for a change for me, because normally it’s three-quarters electric music on the show.

Although at this stage Gallagher was spending most of his time performing in the United States, he came to the RTÉ studios to record this acoustic set. He had just released his ‘Calling Card’ album a couple of months beforehand and indeed the quieter, more reflective side of Gallagher's playing is evident in this programme. 

Me And My Music: Rory Gallagher was broadcast on 22 February 1977.  The producer was Ian McGarry.
