'Blues Alive' has to be the best place to go to hear Gary Moore powering out the blues with feeling and gusto. Not only is it a great Moore album, it is also an excellent live blues album. You get the soulful melancholy of tracks like 'Separate Ways', still one of my favourite blues tracks even after all these years, to more upbeat songs like 'Oh Pretty Woman' and 'Walking By Myself'. In addition to these tracks you get what is probably one of the best renditions of 'Parisienne Walkways' i've ever heard and considering how overplayed that song has become, that is saying something. Moores guitar tone and feel is amazing and will give you goosebumps. If you buy this album it will soon become required listening for years to come and will be something you keep coming back to, to be amazed and put in awe. Deserves every star it gets!
