Gary Moore opened that door for me - Henrik Freischlader interview

Click here for larger image

Henrik is a self-taught musician, a multi-instrumentalist, and a composer. He loves the Blues. Motivated by Gary Moore, he made the guitar his main instrument... - as you can read on his website. Of course he is much more than that. A very talented and open-minded musician, who started his career by playing the blues, adding other influences from jazz, funk and soul, and now he is on his way to a rockier direction - as you can already hear it on the most recent Henrik Freischlader Band album, "House In The Woods". The band has been touring with new songs since last autumn and has already played more than 50 concerts in a tight schedule, so we took the opportunity to ask Henrik some questions, during a short break before the second leg of the tour, with another 20 gigs in the UK and continental Europe. Did I forget to mention that he is a great guy with lots of love and humour, and also a member of our fan community from the early days? LOTS of reasons why you should really check out his music.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Reissue with Gary's playing

Click here for larger imageAnother Gary Moore guest appearance is released on CD during the first week of December. "Warriors Of The Wasteland" was planned to release in a new version in December 1986, so Trevor Horn, the producer of Frankie Goes To Hollywood asked Gary Moore to play some guitar for this new "Attack Mix". Gary did the recording in an hour, and as he mentioned in an interview later, the next day he heard it on the radio. Originially it was produced only as a test pressing 12" single, and was available on rare bootleg releases for years. In 2001 it was finally released on an official compilation in Germany, under the title "Twelve Inches". This time it is available in two formats, in Europe on one disc, while in Japan as a double version with different artwork...

Keith Emerson's "The Christmas Album"

Click here for larger image

One of Gary's almost unknown guest appearances will be released again on CD after long years. It was originally recorded in 1982, but at the end of the day the album was released only in 1988, under the title "The Christmas Album". Although none of the LP or CD versions mentions Gary's name as a guest musician, Keith confirmed that he needed a guitarist and a drummer in a song, so he has asked Gary and his drummer at the time, Ian Paice. I wouldn't say that it is a must (unless if you are a collector of Gary Moore releases), but of course it can be a nice and interesting addition to your music collection, especially now in the Christmas season. The title of the album tells you everything about it really. Such a shame that as a composer, Keith only needed from Gary what we can hear on it. Keith has asked him, and he's helped. After you bought it and enjoyed the music, than placed the CD on the shelf, check out Don Airey's K2...

Blues For Jimi on double vinyl

I've just received this great additional information related to the "Blues For Jimi" releases, that this great live material from 2007 will be released on double vinyl as well on the 24th of September. Catalogue number is EAGLP493. Looking forward to hear and see all formats!

Blues For Jimi - Preview

Thanks to the Japanese Ward Records, now we can see a short preview of the forthcoming "Blues For Jimi" DVD & Blu-ray.

Blues For Jimi on CD, DVD and Blu-ray

Click here for larger imageThis long-awaited concert recording will be released on 24th September in the UK & Europe by Eagle Records/Eagle Vision.
The Japanese versions will be out a couple days earlier on the 19th. Just like the last time with "Live At Montreux 2010" in Japan there will be more versions, limited edition CD+DVD and CD+BLU-RAY sets, too, but it seems the normal CD version will be released only in Europe, and maybe later in the USA. The program is 74 minutes long, and at the moment we don't have information about any extra material. On the left you can see the artwork of the European version Blu-ray Disc. Click on it for the larger image.

Don Airey solo tour in September

 

Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey will tour Europe in support of his latest release “All Out” on Mascot Records. The "All Out Tour" (see dates below) will cover Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria. The band also featuring the great Darrin Mooney on drums and Laurence Cottle on bass guitar, both of them played with Gary in the past. Their program will include songs from Don's solo albums and big Whitesnake, Deep Purple classics, but Don also planning to pay his tribute to Gary on this tour...

Thank You for all the support!

I would like to thank You for all the support and kind words we have received before and after our first Memorial Event for Gary! It was a hard start, but on the next morning we've all felt the same, that we had to do this somehow. At the end of the day it was a special evening, with some magical moments all together with musicians and fans. Please give me some more days, soon I will find time to upload images, videos and a proper review of the last couple unforgettable days.

Gary Moore Memorial Concert - 4th April, 2012

Dear Friends,

I would like to ask your help!

As you may all know it, Gary Moore's 60th birthday is very close, and we have to celebrate it somehow! We would like to start a tradition for the coming years with making a Memorial Concert on the 4th April to remember Gary together on his birthday, and what else could be better than remembering with a concert. Each year we could choose another country to organize this event, but this first one would be here in Budapest, as for us it was easier to start the whole thing to organize. A good venue with proper big stage, lights, etc already stood behind us, and we have started to put together the program as well, but we really need your support, too. Yes, it's about raise money to cover related expenses, like flying tickets, hotels, etc.

The main set of our concert will be played by Gary Moore's last blues line-up, Pete Rees on bass guitar, Vic Martin on keyboards and Steve Dixon on drums. The great German musician and guitar player Henrik Freischlader will join them, and Gary's brother Cliff Moore will be here, too. There will be local bands and guests as well, and some of Gary's friends also will joining us on this special evening. Former BBC radio DJ and one of Gary's closest friend Ian McDonald flying to Budapest from Ibiza to play an acoustic set together with famous Russian blues guitarist Sergei Voronov. His latest album featuring one of the last studio recordings of Gary, as he "gave" to Sergei this guitar solo to say thankyou for their friendship. Our dear friend Darren Main, Gary's personal assitant during the last twenty years also will be with us, and will bring with him his very talented son, Harrisen Larner-Main, who will join to the acoustic set. We are putting together a little photo/art exhibition as well from rare press and live photos and other interesting pieces. Tom Noll's beautiful work also will be displayed until we will send this amazing print to the winner of our auction. (Click here for more info about it)

I know that money is tight everywhere, but if you are able to donate any amount to support us, that would be a big help! What we can offer in return, that we will share the video recording of the concert with everybody who will support us with a donation.
We will record it with one camera for sure, but there is a good chance for a professional multi-camera recording, too...it's all depends on the budget we have.

Of course the best if you can join us at the concert, so if you will be able to travel to Budapest for this Memorial Concert, feel free to contact us and we will help you! We wanted to keep ticket prices low, to give the chance to attend to the possible most people. So it costs (in advance) 3500 HUF, which is around 10 gbp, 12 euro or 16 usd.

Thankyou for your time to read it! Looking forward to hear from you!
...and would like to thankyou for your support in advance!

Gary Moore Memorial Tree

On 26th October we have planted a little tree in the centre of Budapest.

After that shocking Sunday in February, weeks and months passed so quickly, that I've found myself under blossoming cherry trees in the blink of an eye. Just like in the last couple of years - related to my work -, we have spent some nice days together with our friends and teahouse guests in a little botanical park in the heart of Budapest. We are usually celebrating Hanami in that park, making teas, and enjoying the spring and the beautiful flowers of these Sakura trees.
This spring wasn't the same. As these Hanami days usually are in the first weeks of April, just around Gary's birthday, I wasn't able to get out of my mind the feel that we have to plant a tree like this, dedicated to the memory of Gary Moore. As these trees are so beautiful, they are also sad in the same time. Our Japanese friends knows it better, but these short-lived flowers are also known as the synonyme of the beautiful but short life, what we have to enjoy and appreciate...

Heavy Petting and other proclivities

Click here for larger imageHux Records will re-release Dr. Strangely Strange's second album "Heavy Petting" on 31st October 8th November 2011. The album was originally released in September 1970 with Roger Dean's cover artwork and one of the first recorded appearances of Gary Moore. Now digitally re-mastered from the original stereo production tapes, this great album has now been bolstered by the addition of seven live and studio bonus tracks. Record Collector magazine recently nominated this as one of the most collectable progressive rock albums of all time. This reissue is packaged in a full colour digipack with a 36 page booklet and includes exhaustive liner notes and lots of rare photographs and ephemera. The booklet also includes full lyrics and interviews with the band...
