  • Philip BThere's a studio version on Cozy Powell's album TILT
  • MrparisienwalkwaysGary Moore wrote this beautiful piece of music. The original studio version can be heard on the Cosy Powell album ‘TILT’. Gary wrote two tracks for the album, the first is Sunset followed by Blister.
  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainTommy Aldrdige was officially with G Force and not with Gary Moore as such. The only version available, as far as I know, is on the "Rockin' Every Night - Live in Japan", an album that features Gary Moore, John Sloman, Don Airey, Neil Murray and Ian Paice on drums.
