    I'm surprised how much Thin Lizzy is liked on these boards. I'm all for him!

    ^^ Yeah, that one is good but it's release was sandwiched between Jailbreak and Bad Reputation, two of Thin Lizzy's best albums. It's going to suffer in comparison. Phill Lynott and Brian Robertson were fighting alot on this album and that contributed to somewhat of a letdown. They were fighting so bad that on Bad Reputation that Robertson was left off the cover photo and only played on 3 songs. He wasn't on the next studio release.

    Fantastic tune. Robbo's finest songwriting moment, in my opinion.

    Re: Thin Lizzy

    Having recently repurchased Thin Lizzy's Black Rose, I've been playing it constantly. I hadn't heard some of these songs in over 20 years.:blush: Completely forgot about these killer tracks:

    (sorry just a black picture, but the song is there)


    (I only wish Phil had given up that stuff.)








    Sorry if these have been posted before, but rediscovering this great album has been eye-opening for me. I don't think I realized just how good it was back in the day. It is in heavy rotatation on WBOB.:grinthumb

    ^^^Those are all fantastic tracks, imo, R. E! :cheers: Although I was a fan of Thin Lizzy for a few years before the original release of Black Rose, I was extremely impressed with the entire album when I first heard it. It also quickly became one of my favorite TL albums, too. Imo, the addition of Gary Moore to the band, his creative input with the songs, his guitar playing and the terrific music was fantastic! I do know that he had worked with Phil Lynott before and they were good friends for many years, but Black Rose has many great songs and music on it, imo. I have greatly enjoyed that album for many years, and always will! :tup: There is an awesome version of Got To Give It Up (one of my very favorite TL songs, with great meaning and significance with me) on Life/Live! :bow:

    Life/Live has many great TL classics and performances, with both the then current band members; Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Darren Wharton, Brian Downey and John Sykes, and also guest appearances of all of the previous guitarists, too!

    :cheers2
