Ballads & Blues 1982-1984 is a compilation album by Northern Irish guitarist, singer-songwriter Gary Moore, originally released in November 1994 via Charisma Records in the US and Virgin Records in the UK.

In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with musicians including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teenage years, leading him to memberships of the Irish bands Skid Row and Thin Lizzy, and British band Colosseum II. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock musicians as B.B. King, Albert King, John Mayall, Jack Bruce, Albert Collins, George Harrison, and Greg Lake, as well as having a successful solo career. He guested on a number of albums recorded by high-profile musicians.

Moore was known for his highly emotional approach to guitar playing. Despite his technical proficiency and mastery of the guitar, he stood out through his phrasing and dynamic control which was mostly influenced by the melodic blues. Being an avid improviser, in many of his songs he featured an improvised solo section when playing live.

Moore’s career spanned jazz rock, hard rock and the blues, where he settled later in his life. This compilation splices early ballads from Moore's "rock period" ("Empty Rooms", "Johnny Boy") with his better-known latter-day blues experiments ("Midnight Blues", "Story Of The Blues"). It's solid material demonstrating his guitar proficiency and songwriting ability. It’s easy to see why he was held in such high regard, but both fans and peers.

Check out the tracks: “Still Got The Blues”; “Empty Rooms”; “Parisienne Walkways” and ”Story Of The Blues”. 

This "Back to Black" series reissued LP with reproduced artwork and digital download is pressed in Europe on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
