TASTE: Not Exhaustive Box Set

Announced some time ago but given an artwork just now, “I’ll Remember” is a box set from TASTE, an Irish power trio led by the late great Rory Gallagher. Stiffening for his talent, the band released two albums in their lifespan and a concert recording which was followed later in 1971, when the group had already broken up, by another one, documenting their appearance at the previous years’s Isle of Wight Festival. There were also bootlegs and some of the collectors’ tapes will be part of this box, scheduled for August 28th release. Its four disc include both studio records, expanded with bonus cuts, unreleased live performances and demos that didn’t land them the deal with Decca the trio wanted so much, yet not the aforementioned concert albums, so it’s not as exhaustive as to be the ensemble’s complete collection.
