In his tribute to Rory (Hot Press, vol. 19, No. 13, July, 1995), John
Sheahan of The Dubliners said: "The Dubliners recorded one of Rory's
songs, 'The Barley and Grape Rag', for our thirty years celebration album,
and Rory agreed to play on the track himself. We were in awe of playing
with the great Rory Gallagher with his big name and reputation, especially
doing one of his songs which is very different from our normal repertoire.
When the session was finished, I told Rory that it had been great working
with him and generally expressed our relief that it had gone well. And he
says, 'Jesus, you've no idea how nervous I was about recording with the
Dubliners'. ..... He was a very shy guy and quite nervous when it came to
recording. It took a while in the studio for him to psyche himself up
until he was ready to go for a take. He was a perfectionist, but a very
humble sort of character..."
