Gary Moore - Old New Ballads Blues Review
by Morley Seaver
Nobody does white blues any better than Gary Moore, except maybe Clapton. This record proves that point quite succinctly, although it isn't strictly a blues record. There are several ballads on here that are still a bit on the bluesy side, enough that they fit easily into this package.
Moore has got five new songs on this CD along with some reworkings of older cuts. He brings back a new version of "Midnight Blues" which he has covered in the past. He also does a version of "All Your Love" by Otis Rush, a song which reportedly got Moore interested in the blues. He also covers some Willie Dixon and Elmore James songs.
Gary Moore just has one of those voices that is full of emotion and this record is perfect to convey everything he has to pass along. This is a terrific record that will survive a lot of play time.
