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!

One of the best albums I've bought. Great guitarist was Gary More.

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.

Back in the early 1990s Gary Moore shook off the heavy metal rock jacket he wore on albums like Wild Frontier, Run For Cover, After the War etc and embarked on a journey into the blues genre. I was lucky enough to see the opening live concert he gave with the Midnight Blues Band at the Apollo(then Odeon) Hammersmith.Guest artists included the great Albert King and Albert Collins.I will never forget how much I enjoyed the vigour and excitement of this wondeful concert performance. Thankfully these London concerts and others on the tour spawned some great VHS recordings which sadly never reached DVD format but we live in hope they will be re released in this format soon.If you have never heard Gary Moore as a guitarist then you are in for an absolute treat. This double CD album at a real budget price makes compulsive listening and you will wonder why you never got more into Gary Moore before.It captures Moore at the absolute peak of his vocal and guitar playing powers. It does not come much better than this and this CD issue sets a very high standard in blues rock music...the studio recordings are tight as a drum amd the live performances especially with King and Collins are to die for. The quality of lead guitar playing is truly exceptional. Whatever your girlfriend or wife says to you..ignore it...and just play this album as loud as you can!! This is definitely a great CD set for those long journeys in the car BUT please no air guitar while you are driving!!!Enjoy enjoy enjoy!!

This is probably his finest album yet. It has more depth to it than previous albums because he has taken the energy from the rock albums and the feelings of the blues albums to produce a masterpiece. There's nothing better than jamming along with Movin' On (if you play the guitar!) and Stop Messin' Around. There's a brilliant version of the Thrill Is Gone with BB King and an extended lead guitar solo on the live Still Got The Blues track that re-defines the term 'blues guitar solo'.
I can't stop listening to this album, so I say go ahead and listen to it too, as much as possible.
