GARY MOORE - Dirty Fingers [Japanese K2HD remastering HQCD] full

Finally, one of rarest – and best – albums by GARY MOORE, “Dirty Fingers“, received a proper reissue by Victor Japan Company with a K2HD remastering on a HQCD. There were several attempts to get a fully sound from this recording, even previously appeared on SHM-CD, but somehow due to master copies / transfer troubles the dynamic range resulted plain flat.
This K2HD remastering makes wonders, unfortunately a limited release already sold out.

“Dirty Fingers” was actually recorded in 1981 for Jet Records but was shelved for years, only to be released in later in Japan in 1983 after Gary Moore began to gain some popularity.
One of the interesting things about this album is that features an all-star band which aside from Gary, also included ex-Ted Nugent vocalist Charlie Huhn, Rainbow / Dio bassist Jimmy Bain, keyboard master Don Airey, and monster drummer Tommy Aldridge.
So, there is a ton of history in this band, and the music on this disc certainly shows that history.

“Dirty Fingers” is raw, straight-ahead hard rock played with fire and emotion. It has some uniqueness into Gary Moore’s discography, a display of inspired guitar riffs, raring bass lines and smashing drums. Just listen the heavy opener “Hiroshima”.
Among my favorites there’s the hard rockin’ blues of “Bad News”, the killer “Nuclear Attack”, and “Run to Your Mama” featuring a terrific duel between Gary’s incendiary solos and Airey’s synths.

Also included is a curious cover; “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” a song written in the Sixties and made popular by The Animals. Moore’s version is heavy, raw & hot. This is THE best version of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” that exists.

“Dirty Fingers” is a killer hard rockin’ album which always suffered of a bad transfer from the master tapes.
There’s many reissues out there, but this K2HD remastering on a HQCD is the best I heard without a doubt.
Essential album from this electric guitar master Mr. Gary Moore.
