RIP Gary Moore

I know I am a few days late on this one, but damn this sucks.  Granted I haven’t cared about anything he’s done since Still Got The Blues, but he was a helluva player.  His work in Thin Lizzy was stellar and his solo rock stuff still holds up well almost 30 years later.

Philip Lynott – The Man and His Music Vol III

with 2 comments

This volume is one of my favorites because of the last 3 songs.  Phil was very close to Huey Lewis and these 3 songs are the last 3 he recorded with The News right before he died.  Essentially they sound like The News with Phil singing but they are cool tunes.  This also has another fave of mine, Out In The Fields.   Oh, Spanish Guitar, Beat Of The Drum, Night In The Life Of A Blues Singer?  Damn!  Good stuff!

1.Nineteen (dub mix) – Philip Lynott (B-side of 12 inch 19)
2. Tennessee Stud – Phil Lynott with TERRY WOODS (of Pogues fame)
3. Whisky In The Jar (Thin Lizzy: live in Cork 4/13/80 w/Scott/Snowy/Midge)
4. Somebody Else’s Dream – Philip Lynott (B-side of Together)
5. A Tribute To Sandy – Philip Lynott
6. Beat Of The Drum – Philip Lynott (B-side of Old Town)
7. Stop Messing Around – Gary Moore (live: May 1985) w/ guest Philip Lynott
8. Out In The Fields – Gary Moore (live: Apollo? 1985) w/ guest Philip Lynott
9. A Night In The Life Of A Blues Singer – THIN LIZZY (B-side of 12 inch 19)
