Editorial Reviews

This unique concert was recorded at the London Hippodrome on October 25th 2007. It formed a part of the launch for the Jimi Hendrix Live At Monterey program and featured Gary Moore and his band performing classic Hendrix tracks. At the end of the night Gary was joined by Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox of the Jimi Hendrix Experience for 3 tracks. Gary Moore was one of the finest British guitarists of all time and is one of the few players who could pay homage to Jimi Hendrix's groundbreaking and truly distinctive guitar style. This is a stunning tribute from one master guitarist to another. / Line-up:
Gary Moore (guitar, vocals); Dave Bronze (bass); Darrin Mooney (drums) with Billy Cox (bass on tracks 9-11) and Mitch Mitchell (drums on tracks 9-11)

5.0 out of 5 stars Gary plays Jimi September 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps this 2007 concert with Gary Moore playing the music of Jimi Hendrix would not have been oficially released if it wasn't for Gary's leaving his body in 2011. But anyway it's a pure delight also for Jimi Hendrix fans as Gary truly plays the classic tracks with conviction and adventurous spirit.

The repertoire almost exclusively focuses on Jimi's early numbers, the "Are You Experienced?" songs we all love, staying true to the originals he probably sat and played along to as a kid. At the same time he is Gary Moore and infuses his own unique style, not least in the long, beautiful "Red House".

Backed competently by Dave Bronze (Procol Harum, Eric Clapton a.m.o.)on the bass and Darrin Mooney (Primal Scream) on drums everything get a further infusion with the appearance of original Hendrix musicians Billy Cox and Mitch Mithchell for 3 tracks. Although Mithchell's playing is a bit rusty still its the "real thing" as Gary says.

Two late guitar heroes and a joy for lovers of power trio, clasic rock and the glorious days of psychedelic guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gary Moore Pays Tribute To Jimi Hendrix. September 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The late rock & blues guitarist & singer-songwriter Gary Moore (who died in 2011) pays great homage to legendary late guitar maestro Jimi Hendrix in 2007 (London Hippodrome) in this great CD release titled 'Blues For Jimi : Live In London'. This CD (12 tracks) captures Gary Moore playing blues rock music from Jimi Hendrix's early works : Gary Moore is incredibly great on guitar & vocals that would make both Gary's & Jimi's fans very proud. One can almost hear as if Jimi Hendrix is playing as on "Hey Joe", an indication of how Gary Moore can match the brilliance of Jimi Hendrix's style of guitar playing in this CD! Gary Moore is also joined by Mitch Mitchell (on drums) & Billy Cox (on bass) of the Jimi Hendrix Experience band in the bluesy 18 minutes gem "Red House", "Stone Free" & my favourite " Hey Joe". Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "The Wind Cries Mary" (wonderful guitar work, melody & vocals), "Angel" (incredible slow-tempo track), "Red House" & "Hey Joe" (beautiful guitar work as Jimi would play, great melody & vocals). Great tracks include the opening track "Purple Haze", "Manic Depression", "Foxey Lady", "I Don't Live Today", "Fire", "Stone Free" & the closing track "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)". Okay track is "My Angel".

On overall, Gary Moore brings Jimi Hendrix's great blues rock music back to life in this tribute titled 'Blues For Jimi' which fans of both legends could be pround of. A recommended CD listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars We always want more Gary Moore October 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I like to respond to people who knock Gary Moore, on the basis of his Hard rock leanings, or indeed that he was "Not bluesy enough". Surprise Surprise, did we forget about Jimi? Was he ever anything less than that,surely not. Of course Jimi's absolute genius was also Funky, and spaced out.He was everything except country and pure Jazz, yet we know he deeply admired Stephen Stills and Clarence White, whilst as a child sneaked into Buddy Guy's gigs. Just imagine Little Jimi sitting before the young and mighty whirlwind Buddy and learning so much, absorbing all he could when he did not even know how to play at all.Buddy has also fulfilled every wish we could have of one the greatest exponents of electric blues.

Gary Moore's fascination with guitar is similar to Jimi's but a world away in Ireland.Perhaps not so far in spiritual terms and whilst exposed to a more restricted songlist, he learn't that very well. Indeed well enough to be considered as one of the 5 or 10 greatest hard rock players ever, and in a space and time where there were hundreds of thousands of fantastic musicians.Gary's unimpeachable brilliance, awesome physical power so admired far and wide earn't him the respect of guitarists everywhere.You could see it,feel it,HEAR it. This was no featherweight touch with a flexi plectrum on light strings, this was awesome physical power and it sounded like Charles Atlas on the guitar.Gary's vast reserves of technical ability, accuracy and a special, Irish melodic gift that sprinkled his riffs with dangerous intent and solos with a melodic beauty so few Hard Rock guitarists have.Perhaps only SRV and Steve Morse have the same absolute physical strength, and sounded like they do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gary is one bad-ass guitar player! November 29, 2012
By Rimshot
Format:Audio CD
This is Gary Moore playing Jimi Hendrix his way. He is not as delicate and textural as Jimi. He is not as psychedelic as Jimi. On the other hand, his is a first rate shredder and a powerful player. This is not a bad or a good imitation - it is a completely new way of listening to the Hendrix canon. Certainly not better, just different. There are moments when I wish he would swing more and rock less, but Gary cranked it to "11" and was playing hot that night. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail! I doubt it would have been released without his untimely passing, but I am glad it was. It may actually appeal to newer guitar enthusiasts who are a little confused by the Hendrix legacy in the age of power players like Vai, Morse, etc. FTR - I am a huge Gary Moore fan, but if this was the first thing I had heard of him, this would not have convinced me that he was as special as his more nuanced blues playing indicates, or his homage to Peter Green, Blues for Greeny, where he really does inhabit the spirit of the man.

Once again, I bought an album after hearing a cut that I loved. But I found the overall performance somewhat disappointing and self indulgent. Read more

Imagine they took the guy from Black Sabbath, shot him up with amphetamines, and told him, "Play something bluesy." Listening to this, I felt embarrassed for Mitch and Billy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but no jamming to speak of
Anything by Gary Moore is worth it. I just expected some extended Jams and there are none to speak of. The set with Mtich and Billy is as close as it gets and is sweet.
