Gary in­tro­duces this per­for­mance with the words “We’re go­ing to do like a dif­fer­ent set tonight. We’ll be do­ing some stuff off the new al­bum, hope you don’t mind eh?” and true to his word it’s a very dif­fer­ent set in­deed and of course the au­di­ence didn’t mind! The al­bum he’s re­fer­ring to was in fact Close As You Get, and he’s us­ing the same mu­si­cians here in­clud­ing Thin Lizzy’s Brian Downey on drums, so it comes as no sur­prise that there’s a nod to the leg­endary rock­ers in the shape of Don’t Be­lieve A Word. It’s the usual rock meets blues set, in­clud­ing some great slide gui­tar work on If The Devil Made Whiskey. The slow blues of Trou­ble At Home, also from the ‘new’ al­bum, al­lows him to tear waves of emo­tion from his gui­tar. With a fresh take on old favourites like Walk­ing By My­self and Still Got The Blues, there’s a good mix­ture of ma­te­rial, so thank good­ness some­one de­cided to record the show. `it also re­minds us of what a fan­tas­tic gui­tarist Gary was and how sorely he is still missed.
