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).

In your panoramas...
Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn.
