WATCH Thin Lizzy's Scott Gorham accept The MOJO Icon Award on behalf of his former bandmate, Phil Lynott. To celebrate the 45th anniversary of Thin Lizzy’s 1978 live album Live And Dangerous UMC will release a definitive 8CD super deluxe edition featuring a newly remastered version of the album and alongside it all the gigs recorded for Live and Dangerous!

Brian Downey is THE most underrated drummer in rock - he shines all the way through this, Phil is brilliant, hardly missing a word or a note, Robbo is Robbo, but the understated flair shines through, and Gorham shows why he was essential to the band.The band had scored hit singles and developed a strong live following, including headlining the Reading Festival. Recording [ edit ] Thin Lizzy live on the Bad Reputation tour in 1977, during which concerts at Philadelphia and Toronto were recorded for the album. There are seven bonus live discs that illustrate what a great band Philip put together with the twin guitar line-up. The package also includes sleeve notes with new interviews by Mark Blake and a booklet packed with rare photos and memorabilia.

Naturally, the box set invites us to compare the various different versions of these long-familiar songs. There was a lot at stake, then, when a regrouped Lizzy parked outside the ‘Hammy’ Odeon that November with producer Tony Visconti and the Maison Rouge mobile studio in tow.It was also the last Thin Lizzy album to feature guitarist Brian Robertson, [a] who left the band shortly after its release. By the mid-1970s, Thin Lizzy had stabilised around its founding members – singer and bassist Phil Lynott and drummer Brian Downey – and guitarists Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. One thought that really stuck with me throughout this box set was that it documents a great band, at the absolute height of their powers.

The setlist feels like a greatest hits compilation, with classics like “Emerald,” “Opium Trail,” and “Bad Reputation” making appearances. There was something in the symmetry of Gorham and Robertson’s Les Pauls; something in the album cover-shot of a clench-fisted Lynott on his knees, that made Lizzy obvious poster boys.NME reviewer Tim Chester declared Live and Dangerous "the best live album we ever heard" despite the alleged overdubs, which he dismissed as irrelevant. The Thin Lizzy Live and Dangerous 8cd box is a excellent product well worth the purchase if you are a big Lizzy fan as I am. Don’t hesitate – it’s a testament to the band’s enduring legacy and a showcase of their incredible talent. Various studio overdubs were made to the live recordings during early 1978 in Paris; exactly how much of the album is overdubbed has been a contentious topic since its release.
