Gary Moore plays a couple of strats and even a flying V in his tribute and I do prefer the sound of his strats on this program. The few songs where he is joined by original Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and Band of Gypsies bass player Billy Cox (Red House, Stone Free, and Hey Joe) are particular highlights for me.
As far as rating it 5 stars...well that is because I love Gary Moore's playing and musicality and miss him and plead for more to be released. If I were to be brutally honest I could knock a star off just because there are 5 star DVDs which have better/longer shows, backstage interviews and bonus tracks and I normally reserve 5 stars for such overwhelming values but Gary Moore's flying fingers and passion puts the extra star on this for me.
But realize he lived almost all of his life in England so probably consider him a local no doubt. Another must have for Gary Moore devotee's like myself that play almost every night his concerts after all are asleep and wonder what could have been in the future from the master. A++++++
Gary's performance was part of The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey Jimi Hendrix: Live at Monterey launch event which was preceded that evening by a screening of this film. The event was held at the Hippodrome in London and was to be broadcast live at several "nightclubs" throughout England,but that idea was scrapped for whatever reason. However,the event was professionally filmed and this is where we get this great performance of Gary Moore performing with Darrin Mooney,Dave Bronze,Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell!
It truly was a magical night capped off with Gary masterfully playing through a set of Hendrix classics! Gary applied his own unique style to these Hendrix classics and did an unforgetable,amazing job! And,as an extra special treat,playing alongside Billy and Mitch!
Just to clear up some confusion, Gary was actually in very good spirits that night and I actually talked to him at length after the show and he really enjoyed the night. The comment that he had made during Foxey Lady was "F*** off bastard" and he was calling out someone that was taking flash photos of him whilst he was playing. An absolute no-no that was annoying him.
Only the memory remains now of that night, but I am glad for this release.Read more ›
