Released October 1st, 1978
'Photo-Finish' was so titled because the album was delivered to Chrysalis at the eleventh hour, just (and only just) making the deadline. Rory reduced his band to a three piece removing the keyboards from the line-up and bringing in a new drummer. This album is unique for Rory in that it's Blues influences make way for a more Hard Rock sound. The fact that bands like the Scorpions were knocking around the studio at the same time perhaps could have a bearing on this. One outstanding track on this album is 'Cruise On Out' with it's Hard-Rock-Rockabilly rhythm section, written by Rory with Elvis in mind.
