5.0 out of 5 stars "Welcome back, Gary... back to the blues." August 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
After a run of best-selling blues-based albums in the early 1990's, Gary went away from the blues for a couple of albums-just for a change of pace and creative stimulation. 2001 saw him return to his beloved blues with renewed energy.
A more stripped down approach was utilized; guitar, bass, keys & drums were the basic line-up, with horns only appearing on one track. A mix of blues standards and Moore originals were passionately rendered by Gary and his band.

In addition to his usual Les Paul & Stratocaster, a flock of new instruments appeared; Gibson's ES-355 & ES-335 were prominently featured, as well as a Les Paul double-cut,and-on the opening cut "Enough Of The Blues"-a Dobro resonator guitar, which stars the album with an old-record style scratchiness. After 12 bars the sound clears and the band hammers. Good opening.

B.B. King's "You Upset Me Baby" is the only track to feature Gary's "Midnight Horns", and they make this tune swing.

"Cold Black Night" is the most rocking of any of Gary's blues originals. The bass and drums lay down a super-fast 12 bar groove, and Gary plays at an even faster tempo during his lead guitar breaks. The chromatic climb with the Wah-Wah pedal puts the 'rock' into blues rock.

T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday" is an incredible 1-take live in the studio performance, with Gary turning in one of his all-time best performances, including the vocals. No overdubs-just blues at it's best.

Gary's arrangement of Clarence Carter's "I Ain't Got You" is very much like the Yardbirds arrangement, except Gary blows the pants off of Eric Clapton's original lead work (no offense, E.C.).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Strong As Other Albums June 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a Gary Moore fan I was mildly disappointed with this cd.
Moore's best disc by far wasBad for You Baby.
This disc has some great blues tracks and some that just aren't my cup of tea.

What I really like is "Stormy Monday" (penned by T-Bone Walker). Gary Moore did that Albert King song justice with his version.
"The Prophet" is another funeral dirge type instrumental. Very emotionally charged!
"Looking Back" is a catchy little tune with whimsical lyrics.
As with other albums there is another standout cover tune to go along with "Stormy Monday".
"You Upset Me Baby" is that song. It's a B.B.King song and serves as an example that Gary Moore was proficient at covering songs from artists with different styles.

I prefer After Hours,Close As You Get, and the previously mentioned "Bad For You Baby" over this cd.
