Product Description

Product Description

This unique concert was recorded at the London Hippodrome on 25 October 2007. It formed a part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix “Live At Monterey” programme and featured Gary Moore and his band performing classic Hendrix tracks. At the end of the night Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for 3 tracks. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix’s groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Tribute To Jimi. 26 Sep 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The magnificent bluesman Gary Moore pays homage to the one and only Jimi Hendrix in London, 2007. A long time fan of Jimi, Gary has been an avid listener and learner modifying his playing to produce this outstanding set very much in the style of Jimi. At times the similarity in his tone and phrasing are eerily those of Jimi. The opening 'Purple Haze' riffs, the solo on 'Foxey Lady' the timing and feeling on 'The Wind Cries Mary' and the use of controlled feedback, tremolo- driven vibrato with sustained notes, often bent particularly evident on 'I Don't Live Today'. Gary, as we know, has fingers that can play like lightening but always appropriately. The beautiful 'Angel' is played and sung in true Hendrix style with a little more of the Gary Moore stamp.

Gary is joined by Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell on 'Red House', 'Stone Free' and 'Hey Joe'. The vocals on 'Red House' are shared by Billy Cox and Gary. This is right up Gary's street as he unleashes a flowing and longish solo with frugal use of the wha-wha pedal that is another highlight of the show. Mitch's drumming sounds a bit laboured (the three had only met the night before). He is more animated on 'Stone Free' where Billy Cox takes the vocals. 'Hey Joe' is another highlight reproducing the sound and atmosphere of Jimi's first hit with another exceptional solo. The final number is 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)'. Gary's cracking opening using the wha-wha and prominent echo, crescendo chords and his guitar work and solo are amazingly Hendrix-like. His vocals are generally fine throughout the concert.

Gary is accompanied by the solid Dave Bronze on bass and Darrin Mooney on drums. This is a fitting bow to the genius of Jimi Hendrix. I can't think of any guitarist who could produce this sound as well as Gary Moore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corridors Of Power 21 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
What can i say, if you want a full on in your face Hendrix set this one is for you. Not sure what Gary's mind set was at the time, there are a couple of "F" words during the concert thrown in for good measure, but gee with that in mind the power and emotion Gary Moore brings to the audience is spellbinding. I swear the Hendrix renditions are close to the original, although i guess there is nothing better than the original, but when Gary kicks into overdrive there is no one better!!! Great to see Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox return for 3 songs, stunning!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars meeting of the masters 25 Sep 2012
By Bodhi Heeren TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps this 2007 concert with Gary Moore playing the music of Jimi Hendrix would not have been oficially released if it wasn't for Gary's leaving his body in 2011. But anyway it's a pure delight also for Jimi Hendrix fans as Gary truly plays the classic tracks with conviction and adventurous spirit.

The repertoire almost exclusively focuses on Jimi's early numbers, the "Are You Experienced?" songs we all love, staying true to the originals he probably sat and played along to as a kid. At the same time he is Gary Moore and infuses his own unique style, not least in the long, beautiful "Red House".

Backed competently by Dave Bronze (Procol Harum, Eric Clapton a.m.o.)on the bass and Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream) on drums everything get a further infusion with the appearance of original Hendrix musicians Billy Cox and Mitch Mithchell for 3 tracks. Although Mithchell's playing is a bit rusty still its the "real thing" as Gary says.

Two late guitar heroes and a joy for lovers of power trio, clasic rock and the glorious days of psychedelic guitar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Moore's best sadly 21 Nov 2012
By Siriam TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really loved the Gary Moore earlier tribute to Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac given his clear influence on the young Moore. I therefore looked forward to this CD's release thinking that if anyone could do a fitting tribute to a guitarist who for me is incomparable, then Moore might be the man. While it has taken many years to surface (recorded in 2007 and only being released after Moore's death in 2011) leaving a fear this was simply a clearing out of stored tapes and product, the added news that he was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox merely upped the expectation levels.

Having now listened to it a few times, I fear I am unlikely to keep this CD. I find Moore too OTT most of the time (a great contrast to his Green tribute) though his choice of tracks from Hendrix's songbook is impeccable (including the wonderful "The wind cries Mary") and brave (choosing "Angel" and "Voodoo Child"). The fault is his guitar playing just does not have the range and subtlety needed to do justice or improve on the originals and live versus studio his voice is not at its greatest. His backing group for most of the set is adequate and not driving him forward as needed and sadly the appearance on only the end numbers of Cox and Mitchell does not greatly improve the chemistry. Mitchell in particular by this stage (2005+) from having seen him live with Mick Taylor was not in good physical shape and that is on show here.

The sad truth which this CD highlights is that Hendrix was a very unique performer (songwriter, guitarist and singer) and it is noticeable that very few of his songs have been covered with any success since his sad early death in the 1970s. The one notable exception for me is "Little Wing" by Derek and the Dominoes where they completely differed from the original in their treatment which is what is sadly missing in Moore's interpretations on show here.
