With Gary Moore on guitar and Don Airey on keyboards and an outfit doing a fiery form of fusion, how can you go wrong? The truth is, you can’t.

Don Airey - All Out
Review by Larry Toering

Following up his last release seemed to be a fairly swift effort, but it was a good idea for Don Airey, as this one is a little more up my alley.

Gary Moore - and Friends - One Night In Dublin -A Tribute to Phil Lynott DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Well, first off, what can be said about Phil Lynott that hasn't been said before? The man was a musical genius, and in many ways was the heart and soul of Thin Lizzy - one of the best underrated bands of the 1970's.

Gary Moore - Bad For You Baby
Review by Gary Hill
Gary Moore is truly one of the greats of the British school of the blues. His albums are consistently strong and this one is no exception. In fact, I’d say this is actually one of the best discs he’s produced.

Gary Moore - Close As You Get
Review by Gary Hill
When it comes to modern blues with more than just a passing nod to the roots of the genre, Gary Moore is one of those artists who are in the upper echelon. Here he has given us a new collection of tracks that stands up with the best of his catalog.

Colosseum - Colosseum Live
Review by G. W. Hill

This new release is a deluxe reissue of an old album from Colosseum. There is a second CD with bonus tracks and to some degree, I think I like that disc better. .

Tipton, Entwhistle & Powell - Edge of the World
Review by Gary Hill

When Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest first set out to record a solo album he worked predominantly with John Entwhistle (The Who) and Cozy Powell (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Emerson Lake and Powell and seemingly a million other bands). Well, after the disc was done, the label nixed its release.

Ian Gillan - Gillan’s Inn
Review by Rick Damigella
Setting convention and professionalism aside for one moment… I am a card carrying Ian Gillan fan. I have seen him live numerous times, have listened to countless hours of his singing from throughout his storied career, from the Javelins through multiple incarnations fronting Deep Purple to his stint as Jesus.

With Gary Moore’s passing in February of 2011, this DVD takes on a greater importance than it would others have had.

Deep Purple - Live At Montreux 2011
Review by Larry Toering

As a major fan of Deep Purple, I am approaching this with a more informative angle, to not only shed any overly biased factors, but explain a few things from within the Purple frame of mind.

Deep Purple - Live in Rockford, IL, 2005
Review by Mike Korn
Deep Purple don't play all that many dates in the U.S. anymore, preferring to concentrate on the more lucrative foreign markets, so it was quite a surprise to see they got a gig here in Rockford. This is a band that got its start the same year that Led Zeppelin did and they have been prolific since that long ago year of 1968.

Deep Purple - Live in Ventura, California, August, 2007
Review by Rick Damigella
Deep Purple stormed through Southern California in August as part of their current world tour, playing three shows from San Diego to Ventura over five days. I took in two of the gigs, the first being in Costa Mesa at the long underutilized Pacific Amphitheater and then the very next night at the Ventura Theater.

Deep Purple - Now What?!
Review by G. W. Hill

I definitely would not put every Deep Purple album in progressive rock. This one, though, certainly qualifies.

Deep Purple - Now What?! (Special Edition CD+DVD)
Review by Larry Toering

To make it back after seven years culminating into eight for a studio album at this stage in the Deep Purple legacy was a big risk, but one I find to be smaller than the last time the name went eight years in existence without an album, which was 1976 to 1984.

Gary Moore - Old New Ballads Blues
Review by Gary Hill
Gary Moore is probably best known for his work in Thin Lizzy, but the truth of the matter is, that's only one side of the coin. In his solo career he is an extremely talented proponent of the British school of blues.

Deep Purple - They All Came Down To Montreux – Live at Montreux 2006 DVD

When it comes time to figure out a list of the best videos of the year, this one will be very close to the top. While I enjoyed the DVD of Purple’s earlier Montreux appearances, this one is heads above that one.
