The three solo albums where we also can find Gary's name. The first one, "Over The Top", originally released in 1979, got some bonus tracks as extras - what interesting to see, that many of them are listed as 'instrumental' versions. Of course the whole album was instrumental, so we will see and hear soon. The other two albums - "Tilt" from 1981 and "Octopuss" from 1983 will be used in its original format, both of them including great playing by Gary Moore. It seems to be a nice new release, especially for those, who didn't collected all these solo albums previously.

He initially recorded the album in 1988 at Sarm East Studios, London, and was inspired by an article written by mountaineer Jim Curran about his harrowing experiences on the 1986 expedition to K2 that claimed the life of 12 climbers. The album features guest appearances by artists including Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Colin Bluntstone and Chris Thompson. The K2 box set will be limited to just 100 copies, and each comes with a signed and numbered certificate. The package will also contain a CD with seven previously unreleased bonus tracks, a DVD featuring performances and interviews, a repro press pack, a promotional photograph and a map of K2. Airey says: “You are going to get something that will please everyone and hopefully you'll like the music too!”
