In 2003, the folks in England finally got an official release of the 1995 U.S. Gary Moore collection Ballads & Blues, 1982-1994, retitled The Essential Gary Moore. As its original title suggested, the 14-track collection bypasses Moore's '80s-era heavy metal excursions in favor of his power ballads from the same decade and his bluesy rebirth of the early '90s. The best-known tracks of the bunch remain "Still Got the Blues (For You)" and a live take of "Parisienne Walkways" (which in his review of Ballads & Blues, Ed Rivadavia fittingly points out are both carbon copies of each other), but other lesser-known highlights are featured. Tops include the slow-burning blues of "Jumpin' at Shadows," the synth-heavy yet haunting "Johnny Boy," and the acoustic "With Love" (not to be confused with the Moore-era Thin Lizzy song of the same name). Also included is the schmaltzy ballad "Empty Rooms," a track that has probably been featured on more Gary Moore recordings than any other. If you're in the U.S., instead of shelling out the extra bucks for The Essential Gary Moore import edition, save your money and get the more affordable Ballads & Blues (or better yet, go for a more comprehensive Moore collection, such as 1998's Out in the Fields: The Very Best of Gary Moore).
