Format: Audio CD
"Jailbreak" is the first of three 'Deluxe Edition' 2CD sets released Monday 24 January 2011 in the UK (8 February 2011 in the USA) - the other two are 1976's "Johnny The Fox" (22 February 2011 in the USA) and 1978's "Live And Dangerous" (2CD/1DVD - indefinitely delayed in the USA).

Universal/Mercury 5332052 breaks down as follows...

PACKAGING:
The 3-way foldout digipak is the same design as most of Universal's 2010 DE doubles - the outer plastic wrap has now been replaced with a 'Deluxe Edition' bandana around the base of the set and you have to split it to get the package open - bit fiddly, but it easier to access the discs and the booklet. Phil Lynott and Jim Fitzpatricks' "Overmaster" concept story on the rear sleeve of the original LP is put on the first inner flap to the left, while the 4 colour photos of the boys on the back sleeve are now spread across the two inner flaps - and they look great.

There's a superbly detailed 20-page booklet with a very intensive essay on the album and the band's history by DEREK OLIVER. It refers back to interviews with Phil and Brian Robertson and the text is peppered with live photos and a collage of trade adverts and gold disc awards. To counter that though, I'd add that the lack of alternate artwork or works in progress from Jim Fitzpatrick - the Dublin artist who's Celtic artwork was such an integral part of the band's image - is a bit of a let down on the packaging front. Also they could have used the original vinyl look on the CDs themselves - the UK 'Spaceship' Vertigo label design for Disc 1 with the USA Mercury label design on Disc 2 - minor niggles, but worth mentioning...

The seminal studio album from Thin Lizzy's long and distinguished career in British rock music. The album that brought them to the attention of millions from both sides of the Atlantic.

Jailbreak spwaned the massive hit single of the summer 1976, The Boys Are Back in Town, an anthem for the youth of society not caught up in the New Wave phenomenom. However, the album delivered so much more than just one hit single. It was the tangible proof of the unique guitar harmony sound that became the band's trademark and evidence of true graft put in by messers Lynot, Downey and the gunslingers; Gorham and Robertson.

Time has served this album well and it stands out today as a fine collection of songs across the rock genre from the aforesaid hook laden Boys are Back to genuine hard but melodic anthems Emerald, Warriors and the title track through the marvellously romantic tale of Cowboy Song. All of which remained staples of the band's legendary live shows.

This remastered series, lovingly recreated by Gorham and Downey faithfully assisted by Def Leppard's Joe Elliott serves as a reminder in the year of the 25th anniversary of Phil Lynott's tragic death that when Thin Lizzy were good they were truly awesome.

Beautifully packaged pristine sounding classic Thin Lizzy album. (They screwed up though on Disc Two track listing as a previous reviewer noted)

The first thing that jumped out at me was Brian Downeys drumming and Its restoration for 2011 is the backbone of this album as far as I'm concerned. Gorham and Robertsons Les Pauls also shine like newly polished silverwear.
The other highlight for me are the BBC Sessions recorded a month before the album was released in February 76.
Jailbreak, Emerald and Warriors from these sessions sound better than the album versions.

I personally thought Bad Reputation was Lizzys best studio album and would love to hear that remastered sometime, but this album gets five stars for being first of all 1976s Jailbreak but also for the work that has obviously went into its restoration for 2011.

Classic A grade rock but where is the production guitarist Scott Gorham longed for? The chronological original album deserves better. Remastering only cleans it up, you need to remix from the original tapes. Forget about Fred, Joe and Uncle Sam's remix just get in a pro who can find the power and retain the band identity. The Wishbone Ash Argus remix by Martin Turner is a great example of how it's done. If you heard "Opium Trail" and "Bad Reputation" (complete with drum solo) on the Live Killers 12" Vinyl EP version from Seneca 1977 you would know the power of Lizzy. Massive.
