SHADOWPLAY PROJECT - MOONCHILD

 

 

· reviews ·

Guitar god Rory Gallagher of yesteryear interpreted by guitar god Stavros Papadopoulos, of today. While Ireland and Greece established diplomatic relations in the winter of 1975, their overlap was not perfected until the release of this CD. It is indeed a pleasure to see (hear?) Papadopoulos in a more traditional blues setting than usual — his more well known offerings consist of complicated hard rock, with progressive overtones, and Satriani-inflected licks. While all of that is clearly still evident on this CD, ‘Paint the Skies Blue Forever: Tribute to Rory Gallagher,’ the ‘Shadowplay Project’ — i.e., Papadopoulos and his stellar band of Greek virtuosos — allows us to hear him play blues, with his bevy of ongoing notes engulfing our ears and hearts in the deepest possible way. ‘Messin’ with the Kid’ is a personal favorite, as Papadopoulos turns the seminal Gallagher tune into a funky guitar workout, with alternating heavy riffs and meaningful guitar phrases. His singing voice is eerily reminiscent of Gallagher’s, too, and the interesting selection of songs is a reminder of what a great songwriter the original really was. Thank God for Papadopoulos, who gives Gallagher back to us in a new and vital incarnation.
