Best Rory Gallagher Songs
The Top Ten
From my opinion this is his greatest song. The guitar was good along with the vocals but the best thing was the ending keyboard riffs. Its very rare to see a pianist banging his head like a guitarist. - zxm
I feel this really ought to have been included in the top ten. Rory always played this one so differently but so perfectly. It's up there with Walk on Hot Coals for me.

Can't Believe It's True is a wonderful composition off of Rory's first album. It takes weeks to be able to start playing the song cohesively. The instrumentation is absolutely masterful. The lyrics are beautifully poetic. And the song in general brings up emotions you most likely didn't even know you had.
This is so raw and full of energy. Pure Rory.UListen to Sample
