Gary Moore’s performance of Still Got the Blues, taken from the upcoming album Live In London has been released. You can take a listen above.
The seven-minute track shares its title with Moore’s eighth studio album, released in 1990. The album Still Got the Blues marked Moore’s full immersion in the world of electric blues, as opposed to the rock and jazz-fusion music he had been known for before.
Still Got The Blues (Live) follows the release of Since I Met You Baby and Oh, Pretty Woman from the same album. Live in London was recorded at the Islington Academy on 2 December 2009, just over a year before Moore’s death aged 58.
The Belfast-born blues-rock virtuoso saw a career that spanned four decades, starting with Skid Row in 1968, alongside Philip Lynott, who he would play alongside in several different Thin Lizzy line-ups during the 70s. Moore also played in jazz-rock band Colosseum II. From the 70s he launched his solo career, seeing the notable release of Still Got the Blues in 1990. Over his career, Moore collaborated with blues and rock royalty such as B.B King, Albert’s King and Collins, Greg Lake, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, John Mayall and Paul Rodgers.
