4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Album Selection 16 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
Although there's nothing new here, this represents a bargain basement bonanza if you're looking to catch up on Thin Lizzy's CD back catalogue. The recent Deluxe/Expanded remastered re-issues are something of a mixed bag and this straightforward approach is quite refreshing in its way. You'll notice from the title that this box set is described as a "Selection" and there lies my only real criticism of 6 studio albums covering mostly the Brian Robertson era plus the brilliant "Black Rose", featuring his replacement Gary Moore. First thoughts were that this would have made a better and more complete set with "Live & Dangerous" instead of "Black Rose", thereby neatly covering all of the 'classic line-up' years. However, the CDs aren't presented entirely chronologically - although the box set starts with "Nightlife" and "Fighting", it then has "Bad Reputation", "Johnny The Fox" and "Jailbreak", in that (i.e. reverse) order before ending with "Black Rose". I might enjoy rearranging them in the box (!) but if the intention was to produce a selection, rather than a retrospective, I can't help thinking it would have been better to have at least included one of the Snowy White albums which followed Gary's departure. I guess you can't please all the people ... and which to ditch? But for anyone new to Thin Lizzy, a better place to start would be "Live & Dangerous" and one of the better compilations (either the single CD "Wild One" or double disc "Greatest Hits")and then this box set and later albums, before perhaps venturing into more dangerous waters with the recent re-issues. Of course, there's earlier work as well but that is very different. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, basic collection of Classic Albums 8 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a good basic collection of the classic albums: Black Rose (1979), Bad Reputation (1977), Jailbreak (1976), Johnny the Fox (1976), Fighting (1975), Night Life (1974). If you've not got these in your collection and you like Thin Lizzy, then it's a good way of getting all of these relatively cheaply. If you're someone who likes having the lyrics, or CD Albums as close to the original vinyl Album as possible then this may not satisfy you as the lyrics for each album are not included. Each CD is contained in a cardboard gatefold sleeve with the album cover and back cover as per the original albums, showing the titles of each track. The collection is then contained in another simple open-ended cardboard box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect ! 25 Jun 2012
By Heepfan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was really glad when I finally heard that a new Thin Lizzy box set was being released with such a good price, and I was not disappointed when I finally received my copy last week.

The box brings what is called "classic albums", although the last 03 albums of the band (Chinatown, Renegade and Thunder and lighting) could have been included as well.

No extra tracks are included in here, but just the albums exactly how they were released in the 70's. The CD's come in digipack format and there's no booklet included.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars here was due to the fact that they could have included a bit more of information in the CD's such as song credits, and song lengths. I understand that the idea was to provide a good boxset at a reasonable price, but how much more would it cost to include that information ? I wouldn't mind paying and extra pound for that.

Anyway, if you want to start listening to Thin Lizzy, this is just perfect ! I hope they do the same format for other bands as well (Motorhead is already available).

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Lizzy at an affordable price 8 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit I was a bit sceptical when I first saw this product; it seemed to good to be true. Six classic Thin Lizzy Albums from their mid 70s heyday for less than 20!?! But I took a punt and was more than pleasantly surprised when they arrived.

Sound wise, they've been brilliantly re-mastered. Unlike far too many other CD re-issues I've purchased, the albums seem to have retained some of the warmth and primal energy heard on the original vinyl.

As for the packaging, for me it's a Marmite deal really. Many will probably be put off by the fact that the CD's come packaged in cardboard sleeves rather than a plastic case. There's also no booklet or even liner notes to be found, be true fans know what they're buying and a quick trip to Wikipedia can easily help find out about the personnel who played on each track for those who really want to know.

The albums included are as follows ( I mention this as when I purchased the item, they weren't listed in the description):

"Nightlife"; "Fighting"; "Jailbreak"; "Johnny The Fox"; "Bad Reputation" & "Black Rose".

Every single Lizzy studio album that's worth owning is including here and if you go out a buy a copy of "Live & Dangerous" to go with them, you're pretty much set up to fully experience & appreciate one of the best hard rock band's ever in all their glory and pure Rock n Roll energy.
