An outstanding tribute to the British Blues in the best tradition of Peter Green. However, in this CD I feel that Gary is even better than his hero Greeny. You can also feel the influence of Tommy Eyre pushing through in more than just the keyboards.

Here Gary has written seven original songs out of the eleven and performed them all with solid, melodic, guitar virtuosity, not one misses the target. This has the feel of the musicians playing what they themselves want to play After Hours; there is a deep enjoyment, even a savouring of the runs and licks.

Why has this CD been hidden away? I only knew to look for it because I had heard a friend's copy.

You might also like to take a look at the double CD After Hours/Blues for Greeny or just the excellent tribute to Peter Green Blues for Greeny.

This is Still Got The Blues part 2. The quality of songs isn't quite up to its illustrious partner but the guitar is still scintillating. That isn't to say the songs are bad, far from it. Story Of The Blues has a solo to equal Gary's (and ANYONE else's) best. Worth the entrance price alone! The second and last of Gary's rocked-up blues albums. Brilliant stuff.

As with "Still Got" Gary plays fast Rock blues on tracks such as the singles "Cold Day in Hell" and "Since I met you Baby" which features the great B.B. King. However, he also shows that he can play slow blues on tracks such as "Jumping at Shadows" where he uses his fingers and thumb instead of a plectrum and the single " The Story of the Blues". If you like the blues (how they should be played) then buy this album.

I have listened to this album over and over since I bought the original in 1992.

It leaves you in little doubt that Gary Moore must be one of the greatest blues (and rock) guitarists ever - he has complete mastery. His vocals are good too. I've never understood why so few peoplw seem to have heard 'After hours' - whenever I play it people ask - who is this? - and love it!

In a time when exceptional guitar players are sadly almost as rare as the dodo, Gary Moore should be seen and heard more (sorry for the pun!!).

Gary Moore's playing style and signature sound was not to everyone's taste. But his skills on the guitar were never in question. Here he showcased these skills on 'After Hours', another blues/rock-album.

While this album is not as strong as some of his earlier work and overall is less daring, fans of Moore should be pleased. For more casual listeners of the genre, the result is pleasing, but a bit workmanlike.

It's strange writing this review so long after buying the album. I can remember exactly where I was when I first heard Cold Day in Hell on the car radio - I was blown away by it, and that prompted me to discover Gary Moore. Truly one of the most under-rated guitarists around.

This is a very polished, "Stax" influenced album and quite a departure from the simple, stripped down feel of Still Got the Blues.

Listening now though it's nowhere near as good as Moore's blues debut, with the exception of the opener, Jumpin' at Shadows, and Only Fool In Town which is still a real rock-blues fire-cracker!

I think there are better individual performances on some of his more recent albums. To be fair though he is an exceptional guitarist and he rarely goes below "Good", which is some achievement in 30 odd years.

‘After Hours’ is the 1992 follow-up to ‘Still Got the Blues’ with Gary composing seven of the 11 songs featured.

The album opens with an absolute stormer of a track, ‘Cold Day in Hell’. Another classic number recorded is Gary’s take on John Mayall’s ‘Key to Love’.

Overall AH is a good, solid collection if maybe not quite such a seminal classic as SGtB. The guitar work is as powerful and confident as ever.

If you like SGtB, you’ll probably like this too.

It was Gary's second blues album making his fans understand that the brilliant hard rock six-string sorcerer was into slightly different musical genre. Not too many guitarists and singers could have done this, but Gary did. The album helped him to solidify his status on stage and hit lists at the same time, which was or still is another extraordinary achievement. What else to say? Enjoy!

I am a massive Gary Moore fan and was sadden by his early demise. But with music like this he will never be forgotten. His guitar playing is fantastic and his voice is often overlooked but it shouldn't be as his voice is exceptional. I highly recommend this to any old or new Gary Moore fan.
