Blues And Beyond 6/10/17


On Friday 24th November BMG release Gary Moore’s 'Blues and Beyond', a remarkable collection of his powerful and emotive Blues studio recordings. 'Blues and Beyond' includes unreleased live recordings and the official Gary Moore biography 'I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow' written by Harry Shapiro. Best known for his evocative solo hits, 'Parisienne Walkways' and 'Still Got the Blues' (Video Of The Day), and his on/off membership of Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore’s solo career comprised over twenty albums. Throughout the 1980's, Gary moved up the Rock hierarchy, but turned his back on what he regarded as the empty flash of Metal and reverted to his heart music – the Blues – where ironically he scored his biggest commercial success through his 1990's and 2000's Blues albums. As well as running his own bands, during a successful solo career, Gary mixed with the best that Rock and Blues could offer, playing live and on record with George Harrison, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Greg Lake, BB King, Albert King, Albert Collins and many others. Gary was also the guitarist many looked up to, not just for the terrifying speed of his fretwork, but for the passion, fire and honesty in his playing.
