Editors’ Notes

Plenty of rock bands kicked ass in the '70s, but how many of 'em did it with street-tough poetry as part of the equation? Thin Lizzy's imagistic hard rock was propelled by bassist Phil Lynott's tough-sounding voice as well as a snaking, twin-lead guitar sound that would prove hugely influential. The group really hit their peak on this 1976 album.

This is nothing less than a literate hard-rock record, as essential to your musical understanding of the '70s as anything by T. Rex, Skynyrd, AC/DC, or even Springsteen.

Formed in the late '60s by Irish singer/songwriter/bassist Phil Lynott, Lizzy, though not the first band to do so, combined romanticized working-class sentiments with their ferocious, twin-lead guitar attack. As the band's creative force, Lynott was a more insightful and intelligent writer than...
