Live performance at the Montreux music festival by the late British blues guitarist Gary Moore. Raised in Belfast, Moore began playing the guitar at an early age and jammed as a teen with Phil Lynott and Brian Downey, leading him to assume membership of the pair's band, Thin Lizzy, on no less than three occasions. Moore is arguably better known for his solo work, however. After a long career producing blues music, it was rumoured that he planned on returning to his rock roots for his next album. Unhappily, Moore died in 2011, before it could be completed. The performance at Montreux was the last of his gigs to be filmed and finds the guitarist playing a blend of rock and blues classics from his long career.
Live performance from the American blues musician B.B. King, recorded in New York. The concert features songs such as 'Let the Good Times Role', 'Exactly Like You', 'Sweet Little Angel' and 'The Thrill Is Gone'. In addition to the performances there are also insightful interviews as well as a special duet with guitarist Jeff Beck featuring on the songs 'Rock Me Baby', 'Key to the Highway' and 'Paying the Price to Be the Boss'.
The king of country blues, Mississippi John Hurt first made his mark in the late 1920s with an influential fingerpicking technique and easygoing vocal style. Like so many of his contemporaries, he was "rediscovered" during the folk/blues boom of the early '60s, and he enjoyed a second phase of his career. The 10 tracks included on this concise-but-effective sampler come from that latter period. While these are basically re-recordings of tunes he'd made famous decades before, they still bear that Hurt mojo, providing nearly as enticing an introduction to his music as his '20s recordings.
