Product Description

Product Description

Still Dangerous is the raw, unadulterated, untouched sound of Thin Lizzy at the absolute height of their powers. Recorded on the band’s sell out 1977 “Bad Reputation” tour, Still Dangerous captures the classic quartet of Lynott, Downey, Gorham and Robertson on fire at the celebrated Tower Theatre in Philadelphia.

The album features tracks that never made the Live and Dangerous release and all cuts are previously unreleased. The album was mixed by the legendary Glyn Johns (The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin), with contributions from Scott Gorham and Brian Downey.

Still Dangerous is the definitive live statement from one of rock’s most revered and enduring groups, and is set to become an essential addition to the legacy of one of rock's greatest ever acts. The album is fully endorsed by Phil Lynott’s estate and the band.

Review

"Still Dangerous" marks another stellar live release from Thin Lizzy with this one recorded live from the legendary Tower Theatre in Philadelphia. While Lizzy`s "Live And Dangerous released in 1978 remains one of the greatest live albums of all time, it's no secret that there were Substantial studio overdubs thus tarnishing that 'live` feel. Priest's "Unleashed ln The East" shares similar criticsm. "Still Dangerous", it is said, has absolutely no enhancements and after hearing it, I agree. It is raw and uncompromising to say the least, but still sounds brilliant.

"Soldier of Fortune" opens the proceedings, and while not firing out of the gates, it showcases Brian Robertson
and Scott Gorhams trademark harmonies perfectly. Next,
"JaiIbreaik" promptly kicks things into high gear. "The Boys Are Back In Town" was just about ready to break in the US back in 1977 and is appropriately aired in all its glory here. The guitars swirl over Phil Lynott's throbbing bass lines while the crowd lifts up the chorus. I still find it amazing how Lynott could craft such exquisite lyrics that had that street credibility. "Dancing In The Moonlight" slows things down a bit with its swinging rhythm and saxophone breaks. "Massacre" sounds as menacing as it ever did with its chugging riff underpinning Lynotts towering vocals. "Don't Believe A Word", with its stabbing riff, seemingly darts around the Tower Theatre, but it's the last two songs that are the best: "Baby Drives Me Crazy" and "Me And The Boys" are prime
slices of what made Thin Lizzy so damn good! The former sounds, in places. like Pat Travers' live rendition of John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom Out Go The Lights" from "Go For What You Know", and the latter picks up where "The Boys Are Back In Town" left off.

"Still Dangerous" is the real deal that further solidifies Thin Lizzy as one of the greatest live bands ever. -- Powerplay, March '09, 10 Powerpoints

Backed by a pre-release hype that dares to present it as a more definitive document of the classic Lynott/Robertson/
Gorham/Downey era of Thin Lizzy than even the band"s Live
And Dangerous" - still regarded as one of the greatest live rock albums by anyone, ever - "Still Dangerous" arrives with a sizeable reputation to live up to, not least in its claim to be a more authentic live recording than its historic predecessor -which as everyone now knows was heavily 'touched up' in the studio by producer Tony Visconti. Which actually is not helpful at all, as the comparison is plainly disingenuous. Anyone who believes this album hasn't also been, uh, polished in the studio since the 30-year-old tapes were allegedly 'found' in someone's garage lock-up - not with overdubs this time, maybe, but with the new digital technology that allows even greater scope for 'improvement' - is either appallingly naive or a record company PR.

It's also difficult to see how this collection could really be better, as it's a single CD and misses out several cornerstone moments from the show, most gallingly the spine-tingling "Still In Love With You."

All that said, this is one of the best live Lizzy albums you're ever likely to hear. Of the 10 tracks, only three - "Soldier Of Fortune", "Opium Trail" and "Me & The Boys" - aren't also on "Live And Dangerous", but the sound is infinitely more impressive, as befitting the production era it has been unearthed in, and the performances - faithfully restored from a 1977 show at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, during Lizzy's US tour that year to promote the "Bad Reputation" album - capture the band at its absolute height.

Still Dangerous is hardly an essential purchase, especially considering the huge crossover between this and existing Lizzy live recordings, but not one you would ever be disappointed with. -- Classic Rock, April '09, 8/10

There's an old adage in rock circles: You can never have too much Thin Lizzy.

And so it is here with Still Dangerous, touted as the raw 1977 version of the hugely overdubbed and hugely brilliant "Live And Dangerous."

Featuring the classic Lizzy guitar pairing of Brian Robertson and Scott Gorham, "Still Dangerous" reminds us Lizzy were a dynamite live act, even with the mistakes. Diehard fans, though, may rue the omission of L&D favourites "Suicide" and "Still In Love With You" for "Soldier Of Fortune" and "Opium Trail." -- The Sun, 27th Feb '09, 3.5

This,(again) is NOT a brand new live album as we were led to believe, as 4 of these tracks have been released before.The versions on here of Cowboy Song, Boys and Massacre are (to my ears) identical to the ones found on 'Live & Dangerous' and also 'Opium Trail' is from Live killers, which is long since deleted .In fact the entire album is probably the one that is available on wolfgangs vault for everyone to listen to.Please be aware of this before you buy,it is excellent but it's not totally NEW and it's certainly not one gig either!Also interesting now that Gorham & Downey have actually changed the course of musical history,as on my copy of Still Dangerous they are claiming co-write credits on 'Don't Believe A Word',I wonder what Phillip would have made of that......For a more detailed overview of WHERE this album originates,go to ;Thin LIZZY A Rock legend .com,the independent website,to an entry from March 9 ,2009!This is a real shame & depending on your viewpoint either a missed oppurtunity or a total & utter rip off!!

Thin Lizzy - Still Dangerous

The independent website Thin Lizzy - A Rock Legend recently saw a huge increase in traffic anticipating the forthcoming release of 'Still Dangerous'.

The official press releases made this the most anticipated album in many years for the bands supporters, with promises of an album featuring the "raw, unadulterated, untouched sound of Thin Lizzy".

This read like a dream to Lizzy supporters especially given that the show intended for release was one of the legendary gigs from the Tower Theatre, Philadelphia in 1977. Many fans will know that those gigs were used as the backbone for Lizzy's classic album 'Live and Dangerous'. Finally this was the chance to quash all the tales of excessive overdubbing and re-recording.

However on first listening to 'Still Dangerous' fans were immediately struck by the lack of material, several expected tracks were missing and songs were clearly out of sequence.

Whilst not seeking to discourage people from buying what has to be an essential Lizzy album the members of Rock Legend voted overwhelmingly via a poll to express their desire to put the record straight regarding 'Still Dangerous'.

After painstakingly analysing the tracks and comparing them to the 'Live and Dangerous' album takes and the tracks recorded for The King Biscuit Flower Hour that feature on the Wolfgangs Vault website an astounding conclusion was reached.

'Still Dangerous' actually features material from two different gigs recorded at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia on the 20th and 21st of October 1977.

Below is a breakdown of the album track by track:

1. Soldier Of Fortune 21/10/77
2. Jailbreak 21/10/77
3. Cowboy Song 20/10/77 KBFH show.

At last an album by The Lizzy,which truly captures the live experience
of this great rock band.The recording of this live album with no overdubs,
is surely better than the dubbed Live and Dangerous...and i should know,as
i saw the band on this "The Bad Reputation" outing...!!! The guitar work
by Brian Robertson..is clearly defined on this one...and what a great sound,he produced from that Les Paul...GET IT MAN..!!!

Those of us that think 'Live and Dangerous' is the best 'live' album ever, despite the tweeks, will love this album as well. Not as clear and well honed as 'L&D' it still displays all the power and prowess that Lizzy had by the bucket the load. The only question has to be..which one will get listened to most!

LIve and dangerous was and is remains one of the best Live Albums ever. Having seen Lizzy on several tours with the late great Phil Lynott I always knew how good they were and so recent forums where questions on Live and Dangerous's accuracy as a live recording because of overdubbing and re-recorded studio parts really riled me up. Lizzy were'nt just great they were awesome and this is a live recording with no overdubs etc and will hopefully finally put pain to the myth of Lizzy not been as good live as L&D may portray.

Listen to this - Yes they were that good and No!. Nobody since has ever been as charismatic as the Late Great Philo.

This may be the last of the Lizzy releases and I hope it is because after all the recent barrel scraping and overmarketed trite of the latter stages of lizzy career this really is what they were like and how the should be remembered. Sit this with recent Live Dangerous c/w Hitchin 83 Sights and Sounds warm up and you've got what Lizzy should be remembered by beyond Life(Live)

Respect Philo - RIP.

This release is a great pity - a pity because it promise so much but in actual fact delivers very little.
Don't get me wrong being a massive Lizzy supporter I will probably buy it but not yet!
It is being sold as raw unadulterated yet the running order has been messed about with and key track have been left off and are only available as downloads - why is that?

Thin Lizzy were one of the best live bands of all time and there are many who would gladly have put their hands in their pocket and bought a really good classy release - but this is not it!

Sad but true!
