Gary Moore - How Blue Can You Get
On the 10th anniversary of Gary Moore's passing, his family chose to mark the occasion with a new album, "How Blue Can You Get", released on April 30th, 2021.
The album features 8 previously unreleased songs that are being released here for the first time.
The iconic Northern Irish musician and singer-songwriter have left behind him a huge catalog of music from his esteemed solo career, "Thin Lizzy", "Skid Row", "Colosseum II" and many more collaborations.
On the tenth anniversary of his tragic death, his family entered the archives of the legendary guitarist and found several songs that had not yet been heard and were not released, as well as cover versions of familiar songs.
4 of the eight songs are new original songs, like the ballad "In My Dreams" and the melancholic track "Looking at Your Picture" and the moving ending song of the album "Living With The Blues".
In addition, we get 4 cover versions of Blues songs: the album begins with a roar with Freddie King's "I'm Tore Down" in Moore's live performance, before slipping into Memphis Slim's "Steppin' Out". Other cover versions are "Done Somebody Wrong" by Elmore James and of course the seven-minute theme song "How Blue Can You Get", originally by B.B. King from 1964.
The album also includes an alternative version of "Love Can Make A Fool Of You" taken from the extended version of the album "Corridors of Power".
