Background: Released in late 1978, Back on the Streets was the first solo album by singer/guitarist Gary Moore.
The album reached #70 on the UK album chart but did not chart in the U.S.
Moore was persuaded to stay on and record Lizzy’s Black Rose album in exchange for Lynott’s help in shaping his own solo effort, Back on the Streets. And a good trade it was, too, as with the exception of the title track’s gutsy hard rock, Lynott’s singing and songwriting contributions wound up providing the album with its most coherent and satisfying moments. … Half winner, half dud, the album would at least serve notice of Moore’s rebirth as a solo artist, and he would show marked improvement on his next album, Corridors of Power.
