The album is due out 30 April via Provogue Records and contains eight tracks, including the single In My Dreams which you can hear below.
Other cuts include covers of Freddie King’s I’m Tore Down, Elmore James’ Somebody Wrong, Memphis Slim’s Steppin’ Out and BB King’s How Blue Can You Get, from which the album gets its name.
Leading up to the album’s release, a number of guitar stars have paid tribute to Moore, including Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden.
“I met Gary Moore in London on 23 October 1970,” Marsden said. “He was playing with Skid Row and my band Skinny Cat were opening that Friday. We were roughly the same age, dressed in a similar way, except for the beret he wore! We got along well – I immediately realised how good he was, but I also noticed that he was easygoing, he cared about the support group and made an effort – believe me, that wasn’t always the case.”
Toto guitarist Steve Lukather chimed in, “Gary Moore was a force. His intensity, as well as his dynamic sweet soft tones, had such deep feel. He was a master, and I got to watch him play and meet him. He was a very nice man as well. His loss is felt by all who loved him, but we are blessed; we can still hear him play on the records, DVDs and all that will live forever. He was one of a kind.”
