Here is a slice of Thin Lizzy at their proverbial best touring the U.K. in 1975 in support of Fighting, the album released the year before they ripped the lid off it with Jailbreak. As such, this set reveals — albeit with a little less in terms of sound quality since this is clearly a radio broadcast — Lizzy as one of the greatest live bands in history. The recording was done officially, the release is questionable. Everything is audible with only the slightest sound deterioration here, (and the song selection is terrific from the early years); the performance is just on fire. "The Rocker" is here, as is a stunning rendition of "Cowboy Song," an overdriven "Me and the Boys," "Fighting My Way Back to You," and "The Wild One," to name the blasters.

For those who worship at this particular rock altar and don't have this show, it's most definitely a necessity — especially since there are four never-before-released live cuts!

As the band's creative force, Lynott was a more insightful and intelligent writer than...
