Compilation of Songs written between 1975 and 1986
Looking back never has the same excitement as looking forward. So I must credit
others for generating the enthusiasm for this project; namely the people in various
parts of the world who ask me about the Barry Moore Stuff!
Rather than release the old albums, I decided to compile a CD of songs, which would
act as a snapshot of the years 1975 - 1986. The first 11 tracks are all in the
finger-picking style which defined my early songs.
Then there was the brush with tendonitis, which caused me to literally begin again
after a 2 year break. So the last 4 tracks have that feeling of a new beginning;
a change from finger-picking to strumming. This is the style I developed further,
when in 1987 I went to work in America as Luka Bloom.
I want to thank Una Johnston, Rosemary Flanagan, Aine de Barróid, Gerry O'Beirne,
Eamon Murray, Gerhardt Ammerlaan, Olga Grooten, Geert oude Weernink, Buck Staub,
Rita Connolly, and Declan Sinnott. Also Mulligan Records, Tara, Jan in Groningen,
Clive Hudson, Jackie Hayden, and all the musicians who played with me through those years.
