1 review about Still Got the Blues

Heavy rocker takes on the blues. No one wins.

Well, I don't doubt that Gary Moore means well, and on the back of the late eighties blues revival this crossover effort certainly sold well, but, for all Moore's respectful hat tipping to his elders and betters, 'Still Got The Blues' sounds like an old seventies rocker who sure wishes he had the blues, but hasn't. ... But while Moore is a great guitar player, being a great blues musician is a whole lot more than that, and you can't just switch to it overnight. This is most obvious when he really cuts loose: you know you're listening to a top-flight, but unreconstructed, heavy rocker: large Marshall set to eleven - the blues it ain't. This isn't to say Moore can't be devastatingly soulful, but nothing here comes close to his beautiful single from the 1970s 'Parisienne Walkways'.
