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.
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.
1969 album for the elder statesman of British blues. Remastered.
Blues legend BB King performs live at New York's notorious Sing Sing prison for a Thanksgiving concert in 1972. Folk singer and activist Joan Baez also makes a guest appearance, along with The Voices of East Harlem gospel choir.
This release features the definitive blues growler, Howlin' Wolf, on stage at the first Washington D.C. Blues Festival in 1970, supported by his top notch band. Even at the age of 60, his earth-shaking voice had lost none of its power and feeling.
