Rockin’ Every Night – Live in Japan is a live album by Gary Moore and his band.
It was recorded at Shinjuku Kousei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo on 24–25 January 1983. This was when he was promoting the Corridors of Power studio album and was during his hard rock stage.
It was released in Japan in 1983 but it took another three years to get a release in Europe.
If you know Gary Moore through his blues rock albums that he recorded from around 1990 onwards, then this is a more basic rock style as he tried to exploit his time with Thin Lizzy.
