When it comes to ‘hard rock’ few would dispute that Thin Lizzy helped define the genre. Thin Lizzy are due to be celebrated through a major documentary and extensive box set in the coming year. The boys may never be back in town again but their music will always be around. Enjoy!
Disc 1 opens with one of their best loved singles and a timeless classic, The Boys Are Back In Town (UK No.8). Do Anything You Want To (UK No.14) follows before another certified A-grade classic, 1977’s wonderful Dancin’ In The Moonlight (UK No.14). Punk rock might have been raging at that point but it’s an irresistible slice of pop rock. Don’t Believe A Word (UK No.12) is next up and again is simply classic Lizzy at their best. Bad Reputation, the title track from their 1977 top 5 album follows ensuring pulses continue to race and for the most part the rest of CD1 keeps the listener rocking. One notable change of pace comes with the beautiful Still In Love With You.
Disc 2 starts with another top 10 hit and acknowledged rock classic Waiting For An Alibi (UK No.9), the aforementioned hardy perennial Whiskey In The Jar (UK No.6) and Chinatown (UK No.21). The title track from their top 20 album Johnny The Fox (Meets Jimmy The Weed) is up next, the drum break from which was sampled by many in the early days of US hip hop including Tricky Tee and The Beastie Boys, whilst on these shores The Prodigy lifted it for their own ‘Breathe’. Further key album tracks and lost single Trouble Boys complete the rest of CD2.
Disc 3 kicks off with the menacing Killer On The Loose (UK No.10) and the equally robust Jailbreak (UK No.31) before giving way to the beautiful Sarah (24), a song of love to Lynott’s new daughter. The hard rocking picks up again with Cold Sweat (UK No. 27) and Little Darling whilst the swaggering south American flavoured Mexican Blood, The Rocker and the Cowboy Song all help demonstrate why the band’s albums performed so well and with the live cuts across this set why they were such a formidable proposition on stage.
