Gary Moore - Blues And Beyond (Limited Edition) [2017] (4 x CD's)


Gary Moore - Blues And Beyond (Limited Edition) [2017] (4 x CD's)

A remarkable collection of his powerful and emotive blues studio recordings and a fitting tribute to the Irish guitarist, who died in 2011. The set features two CD's of studio recordings plus another two CDs of newly mixed live recordings, including previously unheard versions of two tracks. Also included is new authorized biography, I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow, and replica memorabilia items.

This is a wonderful collection of Gary's music from the 2000s up until his death. What is special about this collection is the 4 CD version has an extra 2 CD's of a wonderful (I can't say enough how wonderful) live concert. This entire set is worth the live version of "Surrender".. Simply a brilliant performance and an equally perfect sonic experience. I purchased a large package from the UK that included the whole ball of wax. It had 4 CD's, 4 LP's, a biography and several pieces of memorabilia. Not a bad track in the set, and yet another testament to the brilliance of William Gary Moore. A casual fan may not want to spend the money, but any fan of the blues, and of Gary's emotional playing will not regret owning this beautiful package.. I sure miss Gazza, but the live show included here (NOT on vinyl) eases the pain of not getting any new material from him.

Gary has an outstanding voice and unique sounding guitar. He bought the ax from Peter Green. Peter was a founding member of Fleetwood Mac when it was mostly a blues band. Peter has his guitar repaired and one of the pickups was hooked up 180 degrees out of phase which gave it the unique sound. Gary was able to use it extensively to blend with his brilliant songs. Gary did a variety of music from Blues ballads to hard rock and more. He left us with a wonderful variety of music and will not be forgotten. An outstanding talent who left us too soon. (Amazon)
