Gary Boyle - Electric Glide (1978)


Gary Boyle is a jazz fusion guitarist. He was born in India, but his family moved to England when he was eight years old. In 1973 he founded the jazz fusion band, Isotope, and released three albums in the mid-70's. The connection in between the two Gary came from the location of their studio sessions, as both of them were working at the Morgan Studios in London. In those days Gary Moore was working on his Back On The Streets album (and did there some previous recordings with Colosseum II as well) and most likely Gary Boyle just asked him to join in for some jam sessions. Two songs ended on this record, featuring Gary Moore's guitar playing. If you like the Colosseum II albums and especially those fusion jazz-rock tracks on Back On The Streets, you will like this one as well. A nice album, also featuring the great drummer, Simon Phillips.
