One of the best live records ever with one of the worst mixes ever! You can't get any volume out of it which is a shame because the version of Black Rose with every Lizzy guitarist playing on it is fantastic.

If ever there was an album that could benefit from the often dubious 'remixed' marketing ploy, then this is it. Some of the greatest rock songs ever written with performances to match. Unfortunately, the atrocious sound mix often camouflages the brilliance of the songs and performances. Next year is the 20th anniversary of this album's release; hopefully some enterprising soul at Lizzy's record company will authorise a 'remixed, remastered 20th anniversary special' (a la Pink Floyd), and this potential classic can then be heard in all its undoubted glory for the first time.

Few albums ever attain the dexterity and abandonment of Live and Dangerous of 1978. We can generalize, few live albums reach the star and the firepower of the magnanimous LAD. However, such a finding is a shame, since the very Thin Lizzy failed to capture on vinyl the successful performance of the tour 76 /77,in this Life/Live. The double attack Life - Live is very good as the whole discography of the band (with the exception of the first album and Renegade of 1981). All formations of the band participating in this double album, with the exception of John DuCann , Dave Flett and Midge Ure , gunmen hired to fill the abandoned posts in 1973 by Eric Bell and Gary Moore on 74 and 79. Midge Ure appears only in a photo on album inner sleeve. Interesting that the extra disc deluxe edition of Chinatown, a version of Whiskey in the Jar is credited to the guitarist, who according Lynot in an introductory speech refers only Midge would be able to play the music. This Life / Live at the Hammersmith Odeon recorded in 1981 and 1983 brings magnanimous moments. The introduction with Thunder and Lightning brings the pomp, circumstances and urgency of the farewell tour. Holy War here proves very truncated, and the version contained on BBC Radio One / Live in Concert in Reading Festival 1983 is more natural and powerful. Renegade and Hollywood with Snowy White are medians. The disc continues with a trio that cannot go wrong, Got to give it up with the fabulous John Sykes solo, and Angel of Death/Are you Ready, who provide moments by refinement and weight. Dexterity this typical of the NWOBHM bands that were successful in those years 79-83 period, period of this Life - Live.Read more ›

Thin Lizzy are one of the best Heavy Rock acts of all time, For a live recording that was made in 1983, the mix is incredible. Every track on this CD set is a masterpiece. It is the Ultimate Thin Lizzy live collection you cannot miss. The mix is excellent as far as I am concerned especially my favourite tracks which are during the last set the tracks "Emerald" and "Black Rose" are a great example. It was Rock History before we knew it back then in 1983. When "Thunder & Lightning" was released, Their last, The Heaviest and best album from my view to date. The BBC radio airplay on the Friday nights back then, they just seemed to play all the tracks from this album and that was a highlight and memorable to this day! This is the best stereo sound mix I have heard in any concert and "Live" at that it is!! If you put your headphones on and turn up that volume you can imagine yourself being there at the concert and that's Is how good this recording is.
I was one of those that also purchased the Long Play Cassette from Polygram back in 1983 when they were still available to buy and I can tell you even from that cassette recording, I have found no other concert recording mix with so much energy as this. And for something that is more than 20 years old...and this is my main point of the review..... THERE IS NO OTHER RECORDING "LIVE" WITH SO MUCH "LIFE" AS THIS!!!!! Thin Lizzy's very best!! I've listened to "Live and Dangerous" over time but I believe the best collection of tracks are recorded here. one amazing set which includes Lizzys previous guitarists. One album not to miss.

The last great Lizzy album is a compendium of many of their greatest tracks, recorded live. Many viewed it as the inferior double live album to "Live and Dangerous". This is unfair, it does stand up on its own and has a whole different mood to its predecessor. In reality, "live and Dangerous" (the definate live album?) was a hard act to follow. Whereas L&D captures a band at their musical height "Life" has a fairwell feel to it ("Baby please don't go" and "The sun goes down"). The music is loud, rocky but always melodic. "Renegade" and "Sun goes down" are smooth and reflective whereas "Killer on the Loose" and "Holy War" are fast and furious. "Don't believe a word" starts slow but suddenly catches fire mid way through. "Black Rose" is guitar lick versus guitar lick in a rousing version of the old Irish folk song. The Album ends with, perhaps, the greatest love/ballad ever written "Still in love with you". Thin Lizzy were difficult to categorise as just a rock band...they had versatility, could change gears in a second, hit the listener with fast rocky tracks or bring the tempo down with lyric-rich ballads.
"Live" has the lot...invest in it.
