Product description

Product Description

Drawing together the best of Gary Moore's four recent blues albums, along with the unforgettable "Parisienne Walkways 93" and a whole bonus CD of live tracks, Gary Moore: The Best of the Blues, is essential listening for the army of Gary Moore followers and all fans of the blues.

1990 was a watershed in the career of Gary Moore. It was the year that the virtuoso guitarist turned his back on the rock guitar that had made his name and returned to playing his true love, the blues. He released Still Got the Blues, the first of four highly successful blues albums, and became one of the true superstars of the genre. After Hours, Blues Alive and Blues for Greeny, his tribute to Peter Green, followed, and his collaborations with blues legends Albert King, Albert Collins and BB King further enhanced this reputation.

Amazon.co.uk

Like the guy in Spinal Tap, Gary Moore has an amp that goes up to 11, and at times during the two and half hours of The Best Of The Blues you wonder if it's stuck there. Luckily episodes of thunder and lightning are interspersed with performances like "Still Got The Blues", "Need Your Love So Bad" and "Midnight Blues" on the first disc of this 2-CD set, or "Cold, Cold Feeling" on the second--calmer passages where the storm clouds yield to shafts of silver light. Disc 1 is a selection from four early-90s albums (Still Got The Blues, After Hours, Blues Alive and Blues For Greeny), with guest-spots by Albert King, B.B. King and Albert Collins, plus a concert recording of "Parisienne Walkways". Disc 2 has the same guests (though on different songs) and half-a-dozen of the same titles, but this is all unissued concert material. Live performance only stimulates Moore's tendency to skip the foreplay, producing music that is urgent, active and seething with testosterone. Great stuff for a night in with the lads. --Tony Russell

Great mixture of tracks and excellent sound quality. Features many artists that are often ignored on these compilation cd's such as Manfred Mann, The Animals, Chicken Shack and Rory Gallagher who all contributed to the Blues scene. Recommended!

This compilation of Gary Moore's blues albums from the 90s (excluding the recent Back to the Blues) offers a good reflection of his output over this period. It is therefore a perfectly good introduction to his blues work.
For those who have already bought these albums, the main reason to buy is the bonus CD of live material. The collaborations with BBK and Albert King and Albert Collins have been taken from two live videos Moore released in the 90s and, as such, emphasise the development in his playing over 3-4 years. The earlier work with Albert King and Collins shows Moore struggling to free himself from some hard rock excesses (don't get me wrong - these are still fine performances). The later and excellent Thrill is Gone with BB King illustrates how far Moore developed over a few years with much greater restraint being shown (while still being an extremely enjoyable performance).
My recommendation is therefore to buy purely on the strength of the bonus disk.

Generally I'm not a compilation fan, but this is an excellent album for sticking in the car and driving with it at a good volume. Definitely not a chill out album!
Gary Moore consistently shows excellent technique and mastery of his chosen axe... Disc 1 is predominantly a studio CD with excellent track selections and coalitions with the blues greats along with Gary's own blues classics and the prerequisite hommage to the great Peter Green, The Supernatural. Disc 2 is labelled a Bonus Disc, and should be viewed as such. The stand out track for me, out of the mainly live track selection, is the Freddie King/ Peter Green popularised classic, The Stumble. Some of the other tracks make up for in atmosphere for what they slightly lack in 'tightness'. This is the only reason it lost a star in this reviewers opinion.
All in all I thoroughly recommend this CD.
