Gary Moore – “Wishing Well”, “Parisienne Walkways”, “Don’t Believe A Word” And “Still Got The Blues (For You)”

Cover of 1979 Gary Moore album "Back On The Streets"
As I mentioned previously, British (actually Northern Irish) rocker and guitar legend Gary Moore has made the Free track “Wishing Well” very much his own, and in fact, until the other day, I always thought he wrote it!

Here is his studio version of “Wishing Well”

This is Gary Moore playing “Wishing Well” live in Belfast, Northern Ireland (his home town) in 1984:

And live in Sheffield, England, in 2007, as far as I can work out (in any case it’s Monsters Of Rock):

In this 1979 clip Gary Moore plays a song by (and with) Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy, “Parisienne Walkways”, which was included on his 1979 album “Back On The Streets”:

As a contrast, here he plays another Phil Lynott track from 1976, “Don’t Believe A Word”, also on the “Back On The Streets” album from 1979:

Anf finally, though written well after the Seventies, “Still Got The Blues (For You)”:

I think this is probably my favourite Gary Moore song.

What’s yours?

Update: Gary Moore died in February 2011. R.I.P. Gary, your sound will be remembered for a long time.

    check out Johnny Boy on the Album “over the hills and far away,” its just as good as still got the Blues. Although different its pure Gary Moore.
