Editors’ Notes

Legendary Stones producer Glyn Johns came out of retirement to mix this 2009 release. This amazing live album was recorded in 1977 at Philly’s Tower Theatre and it truly captures the Irish quartet in their heyday. Scott Gorham’s leads are as flawless as his flowing mane of hair, especially when locked in perfect guitarmony with Brian Robertson. But it’s the late frontman Phil Lynott who drives the show with impassioned vocals and gripping charisma. A captivating version of “Soldier of Fortune” primes the crowd, but it’s the following pumped-up take on “Jailbreak” that sends fans into an audible frenzy. Lynott’s banter throughout is cool and engaging, and his performance on “Cowboy Song” is simply stellar. “Don’t Believe a Word” could have invoked riots with its raw rock power. Bonus tracks include an extra-heavy rendition of “Bad Reputation” and the galloping “Emerald.”

Customer Reviews

Classic Performance

There were rumors for a long time that the band had recorded several live performances, and this release proves the rumors true. Both Live and Dangerous, which came out back in the day, and the recent UK Tour '75 are good, but Live and Dangerous was polished up a little too much in the studio and UK Tour '75 is a little rough, recorded before the band really reached its pinnacle. Still, the latter is enjoyable for the performances and because the band was still playing smaller venues at the time. This new album, Still Dangerous, captures the band without a lot of studio enhancements and without re-recording parts, and the band is at the height of their ability. Unfortunately, iTunes has chosen to offer it in the old 128 format, which significantly degrades the sound quality. Wait for it to arrive in 256 (iTunes Plus) or buy it on CD.

Awesome...

No joking around. This band meant more to me than any other band to this day, and this album proves what a force they were, and how huge they should have been. I literally get choked up when I hear "Dancin'...", as Phil sounds majestic. If there was a video companion to this disc, I would pay $100 easy for it. The whole situation is so sad. But Phil lives on...

Still dangerous indeed

This show has been passed around as a bootleg for years and a version of the full show exists on Wolfgang's Vault with some heavy cuts between tracks and marginal audio quality at best and although I see a few complaints here about track selection, shortened show, etc, this album has had a stellar job done on it and is well worth having in your collection. This version has 2 more tracks available than the CD release and I'm sure that the band had their reasons for not releasing the other 5 tracks from this show. Grab onto this and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

Biography

Formed: 1970 in Dublin, Ireland

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Despite a huge hit single in the mid-'70s ("The Boys Are Back in Town") and becoming a popular act with hard rock/heavy metal fans, Thin Lizzy are still, in the pantheon of '70s rock bands, underappreciated. 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...
