MOORE, GARY
MOORE, GARY
Corridors Of Power / Run For Cover (The Back To Black Collection)
(Axe Killer Records)
56:49min / 58:26min

I'm not sure why Axe Killer Records is going for re-issues of albums that are still pretty easy to get these days, but the packaging of this "Back To Black" series is worth a purchase, no matter what. Before he completely ended up in the Blues genre, GARY MOORE not only used to be a great guitar player (which he still is of course...), he also knew how to write excellent (Hard) Rock material. These two (solo) albums from 1983 ("Corridors Of Power") and 1985 ("Run For Cover") belong to his strongest offerings in that department and contain a whole lot of MOORE classics. The catchy uptempo opener 'Don't Take Me For A Loser', the extremely heavy 'End Of The World' (just listen to the opening riffing!), the extremely well done FREE cover 'Wishing Well' or the melodic 'Falling In Love With You' are perfect examples of the big variety of "Corridors...", while "Run For Cover" partly even managed to top that high quality with its excellent titletrack, the Lynott / Moore songs 'Military Man' and 'Out In The Fields' or the ultimate MOORE ballad 'Empty Rooms'. Another plus of "Run For Cover" is its production, which was done by several wellknown producers, such as Peter Collins, James 'Jimbo' Barton, Andy Johns, Beau Hill or Mike Stone, who all delivered first class quality on the individual tracks. This deluxe packaged double CD not only comes up with fat full colored booklet, lots of pictures, lyrics etc., it also has five bonus tracks in total! So GARY MOORE fans or collectors of limited edition stuff shouldn't hesitate to add this release to their collection.
