'Personal Appeal' at once both showcases why such acclaim is several decades overdue, but in its body of material it actually goes back to way before the magazine covers & rise to cult iconicity that Moore can now justly enjoy.

The 15 tracks have been taken from a period in between 1973 to 2001, an era during which he forged a deep connection with New Jersey, after moving there from his native Nashville in 1978. The cuts on 'Personal Appeal' all derive from this vast, largely un-catalogued well of material that he was creating & self-producing alongside his more ‘official’ output. The selection tells a story, not through comprehension (a truly exhaustive "Best Of" on Stevie would clock in at days in length,) but through mood & representation. It veers through surf-rock, freak folk, touches on bluegrass & country & sprawls outwards to include orchestral flourishes & broader rock sounds.
