5.0 out of 5 stars Simply faultless!, 19 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Gary Moore - The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
This is a truly amazing box set. The 3 discs are divided into separate categories: Rock, Blues and Live. Although there are some duplicate tracks on Disc 3, (Parisienne Walkway and Empty Rooms for example), it doesn't matter since the live versions are an absolute must, even if it's just for the amazing guitar break in Parisenne Walkway.

Each disc can be listened to in its entirety without feeling anything is missing. But if you listen to all 3 you get a great sense of completeness. There are also a couple of great bluesy tracks with Albert King and Albert Collins.

Gary Moore's version of "Wishing Well" is even better than the original "Free" version. There's not a duff track in this box set. It's a really well-thought out collection of his work. The only thing I can think of that's missing is his version of Roy Buchanan's "The Messiah will come again", but to be truthful, I've always thought Roy's version could never be bettered.

Finally, the sound quality is way above average. In these days of poorly mastered CDs, it's quite a novelty to find a good recording!

Can you tell me if the live version of Parisienne Walkways is the same one as is on Ballads & Blues please? Just listened to that on Youtube and it blew me away! The sustained note alone is just unbelievable! Phenomenal player....
Cheers
