Run for Cover (album)

Run For Cover is an album by Gary Moore, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music) and is often considered as Gary Moore's break-through album.

The album includes a remake of the hit single 'Empty rooms' (UK No. 20), one of Moore's biggest successes and top 5 single 'Out In The Fields" the albums biggest selling single.

The album features many of Moore's friends including Deep Purple bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, Paul Thompson of Roxy Music and Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy. Lynott and Moore trade vocals on 'Out In The Fields' a song about the religious turmoil in their native Ireland. It turned out to also be the last known recording made by Phil Lynott before his tragic death on January 4, 1986.
