5.0 out of 5 stars Rocker or Bluesman?
Anyone who believes Gary Moore to be a rocker should listen to this album. The bitter sweet blend of ballads and blues are brought together masterfully by this consumate guitarist. The beauty of " Still Got The Blues For You" introduces us to the possibly, undiscovered talent of this guy. The version of "Parisian Walkways" on this album is the best I have ever heard. No...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ballads & Blues, Blues.........
Wanted to like this album, but the lack of contrast stops me.
More ballads than blues - would have liked some edgier material to exploit that great technique .

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocker or Bluesman?, 15 Mar 2003

Peter Moran (Leatherhead, Surrey United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
Anyone who believes Gary Moore to be a rocker should listen to this album. The bitter sweet blend of ballads and blues are brought together masterfully by this consumate guitarist. The beauty of " Still Got The Blues For You" introduces us to the possibly, undiscovered talent of this guy. The version of "Parisian Walkways" on this album is the best I have ever heard. No wife walking out, no lost dog, but pure, pure blues. This album delivers it all, great ballads, great blues. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world's greatest guitarist?, 31 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
I have had this cd for years and listen to it regularly. If you have ever heard Gary Moore and think him a good guitarist then buy this cd. It contains THE definitive version of Parisienne Walkways as well as some nice mood music and will leave you wondering how close to the top of the list of guitar greats this guy should be. A must for the collection of lovers of guitar music

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant!, 1 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
This serves as a superb introduction to the music of Gary Moore, one of Britain's best blues musicians, for those unfamiliar with his work. Not only is he a superb guitarist but so often overlooked is the quality of his songwriting; the lyrics to these songs are as good as those by any other writers of love songs that you will find. If you like this, check out his definitive albums: Out in the Fields and After Hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!, 7 April 2011
This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
A very good price for this album. Wish i'd bought it years ago. If you like Gary Moore, you've probably got it already. Miles better than the modern pop stuff. An album to cherish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gary moore, 1 Nov 2011
This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
I heard this album years ago, bought it, wore it out and bought it again recently. It has to be my favourite album of all time. Gary Moore was an extremely talented guitarist, and this is a must for any music collection. Definately a classic

Excellent album, soulful blues, Gary Moore is a first class musician for all true blues and rock fans. A sad loss in his early demise. Thank you Gary.

This review is from: Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 (Audio CD)
Gary Moore, has great taste and technique when it comes down to playing the guitar. His playing and emotions are unique, his singing is too. And this album is 5 Stars worth.

Great loss, no other guitarist quite like him. Have all of these tracks already but nice to have them together. Clapton did a great tribute version of 'Still got the blues' - see Youtube.
