Gary Moore - one of rock's most underrated guitarists (both from a technical and compositional point of view), Gary Moore remains relatively unknown in the U.S., while his solo work has brought him substantial acclaim and commercial success in most other parts of the world – especially in Europe. Born on April 4, 1952, in Belfast, Ireland, Moore became interested in guitar during the '60s, upon discovering such blues-rock masters as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and perhaps his biggest influence of all, Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green.
"Messin' With The Kid", on which Wells comes on like a young Muddy, proved to be a great success in the clubs and even provoked a response from Muddy, which he typically called "Messin' With The Man". The rest of the session produced another version of "So Tired" and a further attempt to emulate the hit formula of "Little By Little". It was called "You Sure Look Good To Me" and must have made some impression, for it turns up word-for-word three years later masquerading as "Oo-Wee Baby" on the Chess "Folk Festival Of The Blues" album.
Sink Or Swim, … is the brand new collection of guitar riddled blues rock music. These albums have been in the works for the last 18 months. So many songs written, over a hundred… and this is the cream of the crop. Classic blues rock treachery updated by thoughtful lyrics and punchy guitar. This is a work in four parts, by me: Gary Eisenbraun (singer / songwriter / guitar player / assorted mayhem maker). Rock and roll. Enjoy.
Rock guitar instrumental songs with strong melodies, expansive riffs and musical spaces that allow the voice of the guitar to cry out. The feel of these songs is sometimes soulful and melancholy with a few places that step out with Stratocaster-styled showmanship. "This is a unique CD for me… in that, this one album is an all rock guitar instrumental release. This really gives me a chance to stretch out on the guitar and create musical textures that wouldn't be possible in a normal vocal album. The guitar beckons melodies to come to the fore, the kind that would be very difficult to sing. This allows new song structures to happen that wouldn't have occured otherwise"…
