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

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!

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.

These are the words of drummer Brian Downey re: Visconti's allegations of overdubbing.

"I have not seen Tony since he started with that nonsense talk.

I do not know why he says such things. Has he become senile? How can he say that Live and Dangerous consists of 75 percent overdubs! It is just not true! Is he trying to take all the credit or what"?

"I know what you hear on the album! Listen, here is some common sense when it comes to live recordings.
How many microphones do you have around a drum kit?
At least fifteen microphones. Understand the leakage into them when you have Phil's bass stack next to them, and me on the other side.
You know how loud I play! Then you have Scott's equipment on top of that. How will you be able to overdub all that? You cannot separate it out of the drum channels!
You can do that now, with computers, but then, in 1978, not a chance"!

The best LIVE rock album ever. End of!

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.

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.

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!

Am going to start off by saying I am totally biased in favour of Thin Lizzy, best live group I ever saw, and I swear to this day that you can hear me in the background (I would say that, wouldn't I) given that I fortunate to be at one of the concerts recorded for this album.

Thin Lizzy live were phenomenal, had to be seen to be believed, with Phil Lynott moving across the stage like a giant spider - had to have the longest legs I've ever seen on anyone. "Live and Dangerous" just captures the sheer lust for life, the fabulous music and the glory that was Thin Lizzy. Was playing this the other day in the car and "Baby Drives Me Crazy" just always hits the spot. I was there, I was lucky, tickets in 1976 / 1977 didn't involve getting another mortgage in order to buy them and the Lizzy delivered, simple as that. Fans of rock music, this is a classic album - a glorious reminder of Mr Lynott, missed to this day.
