Rory’s eighth solo album ‘Calling Card’ was recorded during 1976 at the famed Musicland Studios in Munich. All of Rory’s previous releases had been self produced, for this album he was keen to find a producer who had an affinity with traditional rock values but who was open to new ideas. On his previous release ‘Against The Grain’ Rory had started to shift away fromt eh blues/rock sound he’d made his own, creating a harder sound.

Lyrics to "Calling Card" song by Rory Gallagher: Well the rain ain't fussy 'bout where it lands It'll find you hiding no matter where you stand It's. Well the rain ain't fussy 'bout where it lands It'll find you hiding no matter where you stand It's gonna rain brother and it's gonna rain hard When the blues comes calling with his calling card. It ain't too funny when you'd rather die Ain't no pleasure when that girl don't reply To your lovesick letter that you wrote in tears About feeling so bad for a million years. Rory Gallagher Lyrics. album: "Calling Card" (1976).

Even though Rory Gallagher wasn't the first white blues rock musician to become known to a wider audience as a guitar virtuoso, he managed to craft his own unique sound by blending the emotional effect of the blues with the energy of hard rock and the laid back attitude of folk. His approach to the blues became apparent from his brilliant debut and continued through each of his output
