Universal Music will be release a 7" picture disc to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Virgin Records, what was Gary's record label for 15 years, from the Corridors Of Power album in '82 to the great Dark Days In Paradise record in '97. This classic Gary Moore & Phil Lynott single from 1985 will be released on the 28th of October as a limited edition 7" vinyl single. Just like on the original releases you will find Military Man on the B-side.
Another new Gary Moore box set is on way, but this time the record company won't mixing his rock and blues albums, like they did with the one released last year (5 Album Set), when they've put together Run For Cover and After The War from the rock years, with the three blues classics, Still Got The Blues, After Hours and the great Blues For Greeny. On 25th of November Universal will release this low-budget box set, including all the five classic Gary Moore hard rock albums from the '80s, in the same expanded versions as they have been re-released them 10 years ago.

A new 3DVD set will be released in October by Eagle Vision, including three of the previously released concert films. Gary's first and last (1990/2010) Montreux Jazz Festival concerts, filmed 20 years apart, have been completed here with the great Blues For Jimi film, what was recorded in 2007. Although none of the DVDs will including new bonus features, this forthcoming release still can be a nice addition to your music collection - especially if you are just about getting to know Gary Moore's music, and now you would like to discovering some of his live performances. Live At Montreux 1990 is just the perfect start for that. After changing his musical direction to play the blues, he got the chance immediately to play at this very important festival. The rest is history now. Songs like "The Stumble", "Still Got The Blues" and "The Messiah Will Come Again" are proved that it was the right decision.
A new expanded CD version of Back On The Streets will be released by Universal Music on 23rd of September. Although we have been expected something like that the double Thin Lizzy deluxe editions, with rare versions and unreleased tracks, we still can be happy with this remastered version, because it wasn't re-released in Europe/USA since the late '80s/early '90s. It was available from time to time only on the Japanese market on a much higher price than this forthcoming edition. This album was originally released in December 1978, and this time it is supplemented with the B-side of the single "Back On The Streets", a song called "Track Nine", and three versions of "Spanish Guitar". Of course there were other tracks as well, what we've hoped for that we will be able to hear in a proper remastered version, like the alternate US versions of "Don't Believe A Word" and "Parisienne Walkways", or the unreleased songs like "Road Of Pain" and "Track Ten".
Music On Vinyl confirmed to us that they will re-release "Grinding Stone", the first Gary Moore solo album on 3rd June 2013. Although there was a couple of CD reissues during the last few years - one of them as a nice digipak edition with rare photos -, the last vinyl version has been released in 1990. So, just in time, 40 years after it's original CBS release, the fans and collectors surely will be happy with this fresh copy, produced on quality 180 gram vinyl, just like the "Bad For You Baby" album, what the Dutch record company released in 2009.
