Thin Lizzy - Live And Dangerous [180 Gram Vinyl 2LP]
Regular price $55.00
Bottling Thin Lizzy's electric energy, 1978's influential Live and Dangerous (regularly voted as one of the best live albums of all time) was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London in November 1976 during the Johnny the Fox tour and at Seneca College Fieldhouse in Toronto in October 1977 during the Bad Reputation tour. There are highlights aplenty across the double-album. "Cowboy's Song" is one of those great Thin Lizzy anthems - the soft-to-loud dynamic slides naturally into a rollicking rocker, complete with the guitar harmonies Robertson and Gorham played so well. "The Boys are Back in Town" offers more of those elements, plus the singalong chorus everyone who's ever listened to classic rock radio knows. "Massacre" and "Are You Ready" barely stay on the rails - a cool contrast to "Southbound" and "Dancing in the Moonlight," where the structure of the songs are paramount to their performance.
