While I like both the blues and metal I've always preferred Gary the straight ahead rocker to Gary the bluesman or Gary the late-80s metalhead. So this and "Dirty Fingers" remain my 2 favorite Gary Moore Albums to this day. I had just about worn the album out so was very excited to come across an import CD in the late 80s. It was $25, and I was happy to pay it but after that, every time I saw it, it was ridiculously overpriced. (Though I have occasionally seen other copies in stores for the usual $15-$30 that imports go for.) But I will say this; if you are a Gary Moore fan at all, and you don't already have this, your collection is incomplete.

I've always considered this and Dirty Fingers to be almost companion pieces that wouldn't have been out of place as a double album. Released less than a year apart (both have the original release date as 1978) Fingers has the straight ahead AOR rock songs while Streets has the "lets show what we can really do" rock instrumentals that will be familiar to anyone who has heard his work with the GREATLY underappreciated Coliseum II. My personal favorite is the magnificent "Flight of the Snow Moose" but "Hurricane" and "What Would You Rather Bee" are also fusion standouts and all 3 would make any Jeff Beck fan stand up and pay attention.

It also contains the original release of "Parisienne Walkways" and, with all due respect to the late great Phil Lynott, the greatest version of "Don't believe a Word" that has ever been released. In fact, it was after this that Phil had Thin Lizzy begin playing that song as a blues tune in their set. But...herein lies an almost insignificant, but at the same time great, mystery!!! On my original album, after the last vocal "Don't believe a word...

So this and "Dirty Fingers" remain my 2 favorite Gary Moore Albums to this day. I had just about worn the album out so was very excited to come across an import CD 12-15 years ago. It was $25 but I was happy to pay it!! But $80?!?!?! Don't know about that, this thing must be really rare these days, though I have occasionally seen other copies in stores for the usual $15-$30 that imports go for.

The picture shows Gary Moore's 1978 album 'Back on the Streets'. What Amazon is selling is quite different - a compilation of his solo rock stuff. Don't order this thinking you'll get the 78 album - it's just not available yet.

In a single lp you have all of Gary Moore.From hard rock to blues to fusion it is all here. Please listen to the album(and yes I still say album) all the way through.I personally like the arrangement of the songs on the Grand Slam version,but not all the songs are there.The three versions of Spanish Guitar were only available on a Japanese import and if if you want to get really picky there are a few seconds added to the song on one of the versions on that release.Also track nine was a single b-side and to my thinking has never been released on cd.It is a vinyl copy but is essential especially if you like Gary's fusion side.A great ALBUM overall.

The career of Gary Moore can easily be divided into two sections; balls-out shredder with a sleek 80's production sound or the late-night blues wailer. This, technically his second solo album to me is his best because you get some of the blues, some of the shred and even some of the fusion sound of his work with Colosseum II all within this disc. Furthermore, he gets a little help from past/future Thin Lizzy bandmates Phil Lynott and Brian Downey on "Parisienne Walkways" and "Don't Believe a Word" among others. The instrumentals "Flight of the Snow Moose" and "Hurricane" are strong examples of that aforementioned fusion sound he was veering away from at the time. All in all, this is so far the best collection of all of his skills as a player and it never gets boring. Check it out!
