Hard rock with some progressive leanings. This is a MUST for any Gary Moore fan, it shows Gary’s promise as a rising star at ONLY 16 years old!!!

An essential companion to the debut LP. This self-titled album, often referred to as the “Dublin Gas Co” LP because of the background image on the front cover, contains early demo versions of five tracks that appeared on the debut LP, plus both sides of the first CBS single (S 4893), plus two previously unreleased tracks.
There is some confusion about it’s date of release. It’s undated apart from (p) 1970 on the labels. The matte orange CBS label was still in use as late as 1975, so in principle this LP can date from anywhere between 1970-75.
Further confusion stems from the fact that it was assigned the same catalogue number as the debut LP, an insane decision. Being self-titled while the title of debut was just the shortened “Skid” makes distinguishing the two albums tricky. Hence the Dublin Gas Co name it acquired over the years. The only way to distinguish the discs is to check the track listing on the labels. Over the years I’ve come across copies of this LP housing copies of ‘Skid’. In fact some people think it is ‘Skid’ in an alternative cover. It’s not but you can’t blame record (re)sellers from matching up the wrong LP and cover when the catalogue numbers match.
I’ve yet to read a satisfactory explanation of the CBS catalogue number fiasco. Why would CBS issue a different album with the same number? Was it intended to replace the debut in the CBS back catalogue? Was it something to do with a dispute between Brish Shiels and Clive Davis?
