Sound: This is an absolutely amazing album. Thin Lizzy (along with Queen and Led Zeppelin) were one of the greatest bands of the '70s. This live CD captures their personality and amazing sound, making it one of my favorite CDs of all time. Thin Lizzy were great because of their fantastic songwriting, dual-guitar harmonies, astounding bass, pounding drums, and laidback vocals. Out of the 17 songs they managed to cram onto this disc, not one wants to make you punch yourself and say: "Why didn't I write that?" The answer is no. You aren't a legend, nor will you ever be. You will never be able to write a solo like "Dancing In The Moonlight" or the riff to "The Rocker". At least you can listen to the greatest Irish band of all time. // 10

Lyrics: Lynott's vocals remind me of a man who became God, walked around we common people, leaving all of us in awe and converting millions to join him. That's right - Jimi Hendrix. Lynott's vocals are casual, meaningful and upbeat, and it is like he is really enjoying himself. The similarities between him and Jimi are there, but any likeness to God has to be good! // 10

Overall Impression: Have you read the rest of the review? Put down your guitar, get off the stage and run to a CD shop (but not Virgin. They suck). Buy the CD and never read this review again. // 10

Sound: 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. // 10

Lyrics: 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. // 10

Overall Impression: 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. // 10
