Wild Frontier is a 1987 album by Gary Moore. His first studio album after a trip back to his native Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1985, this album has several songs about Ireland and even the music itself is steeped in Celtic roots. The title track was intended to be sung by Phil Lynott, however Lynott's death in January 1986 prevented that. The album is dedicated to the memory of Phil Lynott, with the words "For Philip" on the rear cover.
Many consider Gary Moore to be one of the most underappreciated guitarists in rock music, particularly in America where he has barely made an impression at all. Nonetheless he is often cited as an influence on the work of many other notable guitarists including Ozzy Osbourne’s axeman Randy Rhoads, and his fortunes are interweaved with the success of other well-considered artists.
Part of Universal's Classic Album Selection series, this box set from legendary English blues guitarist Gary Moore focuses on his more rock-oriented offerings. The collection includes the albums Corridors of Power (1982), Victims of the Future (1983), Run for Cover (1985), Wild Frontier (1987), and After the War (1989) in their entireties.
After the War is an album by Irish rock guitarist Gary Moore, released in 1989. Like Moore's prior album Wild Frontier, this album contains elements of his celtic roots. This is the last conventional hard rock album by Moore until Dark Days in Paradise (1997); the next album marked a departure into blues.
Ballads & Blues 1982-1994 is a compilation album by Northern Irish rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Gary Moore. Released in 1994, the album encompasses the softer, romantic ballads and blues songs Moore had recorded since 1982. It contains three previously unreleased tracks.
Not wanting to leave a good thing behind, Moore reprises Still Got the Blues on its follow-up, After Hours. While his playing is just as impressive, the album feels a little calculated. Nevertheless, Moore's gutsy, impassioned playing makes the similarity easy to ignore.
