There´s no doubt that Gary Moore is considered to be one of the greatest rock guitarists ever, he will be missed for each day that passes by. It has already been 3 years since he died of a heart attack in his sleep during a vacation in Spain. There are some box set´s available with Gary Moore but this one is by far the best, with 5 of his greatest hard rock albums between 1982-1989. I only miss Back on the streets from 1978 and Dirty fingers from 1983 but I can´t complain, these 5 included are his best solo albums.
You won´t get hits like "Parisienne walkways" or "Still got the blues", but instead classics like "Out in the fields", "Military man", "Empty rooms" and "Over the hills and far away". Don Airey said: -At the 1984 Donington Festival during the long solo in "Empty rooms", the previously restive crowd went so quiet, you could hear a pin drop. - Everyone back and behind stage stopped whatever they were doing and just stood to listen open-mouthed.
Gary might not be remembered as mr.friendly except for his long time bandpartner Neil Carter, but Gary´s gentle playing will live on forever.
