Product Description

Product Description

Thin Lizzy's 1978 double album, Live and Dangerous, along with Kiss' Alive, the Who's Live at Leeds, and the Rolling Stones' Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out, is one of the greatest live rock albums of all time. The band wisely hooked up with producer Tony Visconti, again, and although it's become known in later years that the tracks included extensive overdubbing, many of the performances outshine the original studio versions. Except for a few tracks, the majority of the material spans from 1974's Nightlife to 1977's Bad Reputation, while the concerts were recorded during Thin Lizzy's last two major tours (1976 and 1977). Few bands have ever matched the explosive energy that Lizzy creates on such tracks as "Jailbreak", "Emerald", "Rosalie/Cowgirl's Song", "Don't Believe a Word", "Are You Ready" and "Sha-La-La", while their sing-along anthem "The Boys Are Back in Town" proves even more vivacious in a live setting. The more serene material -- "Southbound" and "Dancing in the Moonlight" -- is just as gripping, while the slow blues of "Still in Love with You" contains two of the most heartfelt and lyrical guitar solos ever (a trade-off between both Robertson and Gorham). Add to it such strong album cuts as "Massacre", "Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed", "Warrior", "Suicide", and "The Rocker", and you have the ultimate Lizzy album. Live and Dangerous is a must-have for fans of powerful hard rock. --Greg Prato, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Lizzy Album, Ever 20 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
I went to see Thin Lizzy at Manchester Apollo in 1978, it was my first live gig and this album still seems as fresh now as it always did. Lizzy were a phenomenal band live and this captures them at their very best. From the crashing start of Jailbreak, through the mellow laid back Southbound, the hard rocking Rosalie, the emotion laden Still in Love with You, (possibly the best love song ever written), The Cowboy Song....I might as well list every track, it really is that good!
This album totally rocks and if you don't have it, buy it, if you haven't any money, steal it. It is a seminal album and should be in everybody's collection.
Phil Lynott was the driving force behind Thin Lizzy and not only has a brilliantly distinctive voice but his bass lines are superb, in Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson Lizzy had two of the best rock guitarists ever to strap on a guitar and Brian Downey on drums was tasteful and and tight.
For those of you that were there and may have forgotten, they really were as good as you remember them and for those of you that are too young to have been there, buy this, listen to it, and for possibly the only time in your life, wish you were older!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live album of all time 21 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you're new to Thin Lizzy and don't know much about them, forget any "Best ofs" as this showcases their real greatness.
I've got hundreds of live albums by some wonderful bands but none quite as special as "Live And Dangerous".
Downey was a great drummer and ranks along with Moon, Bonham and Paice. Scot Gorham is a class guitarist as is Brain Robertson.
But Phil Lynott is the man, was Thin Lizzy and quite possibly the ultimate bass player.
The only way to play this album is full volume, in the car stereo as you go of to work, or at home after a stressful day on the hi-fi. Don't worry if you get nicked for disturbing the peace, get a good solicitor who should be able to convince the court that loud classic rock like this is perfectly acceptable.

5.0 out of 5 stars still in love with you 20 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My brother bought this amazing album back in 1977 & instantly disliked it & thoughtfully gave it to his 12 yr old brother(me).To this day it remains the only decent thing he has given me.
The moment you hear the crowd shouting the Bands name & the first chord of Jailbreak you are hooked.Have not stopped playing it since & remains the only album that I have also bought on CD.
Saw the band 4 times back in the 80's but never got to see the classic quartet of Lynott,Downey,Gorham & Robertson.
Have bought practically everything that the Band produced,however nothing can compare to this.Not many Bands can claim that their live material is better than the studio recordings,but here we have possibly the ultimate live performance.BUY IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars live and dangerous. 11 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
not much to say on this one. at last a good quality dvd of the live and dangerous era lizzy.

good track listing with songs from jailbreak, bad rep, johnny the fox etc in nice packaging.

bonus features are also great especially the concert from the thunder and lightning tour, live in derby cd (later released as a live album in its own right) and the top of the pops appearances.

dont know why some people may rate this negatively. this is great. for lizzy fans, im sure you have all seen the crap dvds over the years such as live at rockpolast and live in dublin etc.

if you are going to by any thin lizzy dvd, make it this one.

great stuff.

enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD 18 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This has the Live and Dangerous show that was previously only available on VHS. The couldn't find the original masters or whatnot, as it says on the detailed little fold out booklet that comes with it, but the sound is good none the less. The picture is restored and looks great. The bonus material on this disc is EXCELLENT! It has the 83 show that was filmed for the BBC, and the quality is fantastic. Also there are an abundance of Top of The Pop performances. There's also a little bonus disc for the UK Tour 75 disc that would be later released. It has 7 tracks, and I thought it was a nice addition. Fantastic package for the price. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give your ears a treat 14 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the essential live album. If you ever had the good fortune to see Thin Lizzy this will bring it all back and if you did not have that treat then this is the next best thing. Not many people realise, without knowing the group, that they as well as kicking ass with the best of them, The Boys Are Back in Town, Jailbreak,Massacre, to name just three, that they could also do something like Still in Love With you, which shows guitar work of the highest quality and Lynott singing with true soul. Give your ears a treat, play this loud and watch them smile!

4.0 out of 5 stars Music Great -packaging less so 13 Jan 2013
By andy17
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
One of the greatest live albums ever - the seventies delivered several, and this for me is on par with Seconds Out, All The World's A Stage, Unleashed In The East and Strangers In The Night. So the music is in a great peer group. Sadly some of the inner packaging let's this down - being almost like cheap photocopies of the original artwork.
Buy a good quality original if you can.
