Thin Lizzy: Live And Dangerous

Sound — 10
While Thin Lizzy were becoming famous from the album "Jailbreak," this was their major breakthrough. Lizzy live were and still are better than any other band. Each of the musicians are outstanding. Brian Robbertson (lead) solos such as "Rocker" and "Jailbreak" were top class. Brian Downey (drums) solid performance throughout, but 4min drum solo on "Sha La La" proved he was the best drummer in the World. Phil Lynott (bass), he is the guy who keeps their amazing sound going. "Dancing In The Moonlight" intro is savage. Scott Gorham (lead) thriving riffs, amazing solos. "Suicide" probably his highlight. The solos are savage.

Lynott lyrics are brill. Just listen to "Rocker" or "Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed." They suit the music perfectly and noone can match his vocals.

Overall Impression — 10
This is definatly the best live album in the world. Ever. Jailbreak, Suicide, Rocker are you ready don't believe a word are just top class. The dual solo on emerald is outstanding. Rosalie is a real crowd go-er. Still In Love With You gets the tissuses out. Sha La La has the drum solo and cowboy song/boys are back in town is definately the highlight. Nothing to hate. Lizzy are the best Irish band ever.

    Damn right!! A record of how a live album should sound. No one can sing like Philo. The man's a legend and will always be.

    Thin Lizzy was the best Irish band ever, U2 can't match them. But Rory Gallagher was more skilled then Robertson, this is the greatest sounding live album ever.
