Legendary guitarist GARY MOORE will release his new studio album, "Old New Ballads Blues", on May 2 via Eagle Records (April 24 in the U.K.). The CD features five new original songs, including the uptempo "Ain't Nobody", the poignant ballad "Gonna Rain Today", the country-influenced "No Reason to Cry" and the driving instrumental "Cut it Out". Also included are re-recorded versions of the classic "Midnight Blues", which originally appeared on Gary's multi-million selling 1990 album "Still Got The Blues"; OTIS RUSH's "All Your Love", which was the song that turned Gary onto the blues when he first heard it on the BLUESBREAKERS' "Beano" album in 1966; and blistering covers of WILLIE DIXON's "You Know My Love" and ELMORE JAMES's "Done Somebody Wrong".
As previously reported, Gary Moore is featured on the forthcoming DVD "Gary Moore and Friends, One Night in Dublin, A Tribute to Phil Lynott", due in Europe on March 27 via Eagle Vision. The DVD features the set as played by Gary and special guests as part of the tribute concert "The Boy Is Back in Town" at the Point Theatre in Dublin in August 2005.
