Greatest Hits 2LP & Live And Dangerous 8CD Box Set: Limited Edition Bundle [Limited Copies]

Live and Dangerous was released in 1978 and is arguably one of the best live albums of all time It was recorded in London and Toronto in 1977, during the tours accompanying the albums Johnny the Fox and Bad Reputation.

Live and Dangerous was originally intended to be a studio album. Working with producer Tony Visconti, Thin Lizzy had had huge success with their previous album Bad Reputation, and the group wanted to work with him again. But since Visconti had a very tight schedule Phil Lynott came up with the idea that they spend two weeks together compiling a live album instead.

This box set is the definitive version of the album, containing all the shows that make up the record newly mixed by Ben Findlay from the original multi-tracks, mastered by Andy Pearce and overseen by Guitarist Scott Gorham.

It goes to dispel the rumours that the album was extensively overdubbed in the studio and its presented here as the shows were intended with the rawness of a band, they were at the top of their game night after night.

The package is rounded off with sleeve notes by mojo’s Mark Blake and has a booklet packed with rare photos and memorabilia.

Thin Lizzy is unquestionably one of the true icons of British rock. Nobody has ever sounded like them, yet they have influenced countless others. Phil Lynott's poetic lyricism, the unmatchable dual guitar precision and peerless melodies, all of this is part of the Lizzy heritage and what they have left behind is powerful and influential.

The band formed as a three-piece in Dublin and 1970 but didn’t achieve their breakthrough until 1973 when they had their first hit single, a version of the traditional Irish song 'Whiskey in The Jar', which reached number six in the UK.

There was to be a further shake-up when the band decided to expand the line-up to a four-piece, with Scottish teenager Brian Robertson and American Scott Gorham both coming in on guitar and creating the Lizzy signature sound. The 1976 album 'Jailbreak' proved to be the moment that Thin Lizzy arrived on the world stage as an unstoppable force. The album stormed to number 10 in the UK and number 18 in America, and the band’s enduring anthem 'The Boys Are Back in Town' was a transatlantic hit single. It got to number eight in Britain and number 12 in the States.

In 1978, the band released 'Live and Dangerous', which is rightly regarded as one of the all-time great live albums. The band finally called it a day in 1983, with their final British performance being a headlining slot at the Reading Festival that August.

On January 4, 1986, Lynott tragically died at the age of 36 but left behind a catalogue of songs that stands head and shoulders above any of his peers.

In their relatively short career, the band scored 8 top 20 hits over 8 years and no less than 8 albums in the UK top 20, 3 of which would make the top 10 and 4 the top 5.

This Greatest Hits 2-LP set brings together all the band’s hits and live favourites on vinyl for the first time in a non-limited edition form. Lizzy Expert Nick Sharp has overseen the tracklisting, which is all killer, no filler and pure unadulterated Thin Lizzy.
