iTunes Review

For those who were too young or not existent enough to have seen Thin Lizzy in concert before frontman Phil Lynott’s 1986 death, this 1978 live release is the best time portal to the band’s otherworldly powers. The songs were culled from 1976 and 1977 concerts in London and Toronto, respectively. Live and Dangerous also happens to be the last album Brian Robertson played on. From the epic version of “Jailbreak” that opens the set, it’s apparent that Thin Lizzy was a well-oiled juggernaut of '70s rock ‘n’ roll with a palpable chemistry connecting all four members. The awe-inspiring medley of Bob Seger’s “Rosalie” and the band’s own “Cowgirl’s Song” best exemplify Thin Lizzy’s original slant on hard rock—it was around this time that music writers often characterized the harmonic guitar leads between Robertson and Scott Gorham as heavy metal. But the band’s ability to take on softer jams like “Dancing in the Moonlight” and “Still in Love with You” without succumbing to power-ballad maudlinism put it in its own genre.

When rockers think of live they think of Frampton, KISS Alive!, Made in Japan, and Allman Bors at Fillmore. Their are many great live albums, but this is my favorite. Scott Gorham and Brian RObertson play at virtuso levels. Buy it.


This is great live album. Album? Yes this a great complilation by Phil and the boyzz. A must have.

i'm writing the third itunes review of the best live LP ever!!!!!

i saw Thin lizzy live five times. Phil lynott was the consummate frontman. he had real charisma. and he always surrounded himself with the best musicians. this album captures them at their best. but, if you ever saw them, they always gave their best. lizzy was essentially a live act that did records. this album is notable for it's itunes introduction of the previously unavailable bob seger penned "Rosalie". it doesn't sound anything like bob seger. and it rocks in an unholy manner. listening to it alone will ensure you buy the whole album. i mean, look at the cover. that's not an illustration. that's a photograph!

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...
