Still Got the Blues is the ninth studio album by Irish guitarist Gary Moore, released in 1990. It marked a substantial change in style for Moore, who, prior to this album, was predominantly known for rock and hard rock music with Skid Row, Thin Lizzy, G-Force, Greg Lake and during his own extensive solo career, as well as his jazz-fusion work with Colosseum II. As evidenced by its title, Still Got the Blues saw him delve into an electric blues style.

The album features guest contributions from Albert King, Albert Collins and George Harrison.

The title track was released as a single and reached No. 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 16 February 1991.[1] To date, it is the only single of Moore's to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album reached No. 83 on the Billboard 200 on 16 February 1991, then was certified gold by the RIAA on November 1995. This was the most successful album both in sales and chart positions from Gary Moore in the US.
