Format: Audio CD
This new 18 October 2010 CD on Decca 984 447-7 remasters Thin Lizzy's debut album for Decca/London Records and adds on a further 9 bonus tracks (it was initially slated for a 25 February 2008 release, but cancelled). Here's a detailed breakdown (71:40 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 10 are the album "Thin Lizzy" issued on 30 April 1971 in the UK on Decca SKL 5082 (London PS 594 in the USA).

The album was well received - especially by Britain's influential RADIO 1 DJ David "Kid" Jensen, who championed the band and their platter as much as he could. In 1973 Kid Jensen put substance to his love of the band by turning up as the vocalist in the story song "The Hero & The Madman" on "Vagabonds Of The Western World". The style of Lizzy's debut was a mixture of Rock, Folk and even some Jazzy and Progressive elements. It highlighted Lynnot's great voice and lyrics and Eric Bell's superbly diverse guitar playing. The catchy riff of "Look What The Wind Blew In" (lyrics above) would have made a good lead off single, but no 7" ever came off the album. Standing alone it makes for a warm listen, but it's the bonuses on this issue that make it an all together most tasty beast.

Track 11 is "The Farmer", the A-side of Lizzy's legendary debut single on Parlophone Records DIP 513. Issued in IRELAND-ONLY, it was mistakenly credited to THIN LIZZIE and released on the last day of July 1970. Its first CD appearance came on the superb "Vagabonds Kings Warriors Angels" 4CD Box Set from 2001. As the band was an unknown, its release in that summer of 1970 went completely unnoticed and legend has it that it shifted less than 100 copies. A genuine rarity, the definitive authority that is the Record Collector Rare Record Price Guide of 2012 lists it at £1000, but try finding one!

Format: Audio CD
This is not the sound of the Thin Lizzy who became famous. The powerful but overwhelming and simplistic twin-guitar sound of 'Live and Dangerous' is absent. There is a range of emotions here lost in the mid-late 70s' work. We've got a trio here with the stunning Eric Bell on melodic, jazzy guitar. His measured, unhurried, velvety guitar on 'The Friendly Ranger...' (I'd call it Hawaiian, but I suppose it's some delay effect) is sheer beauty. There is a sweeping exhilaration on 'Honesty is No Excuse' (guest mellotron-player on that track) absent from the later macho-stuff. The guitar riff on 'Look What the Wind Blew In' is to my ears totally original, and the solo simply inspired and oh so fast. 'Clifton Grange Hotel' has a loose, confident funkiness. 'Saga of the Ageing Orphan' is a saddish, reflective ballad. It's a pity that Thin Lizzy became so one-dimensional after this and the second album -- not the received wisdom, I know, but try this and you might agree. (Anyway, you can give it to a guitarist friend who will surely profit from it.) The last four tracks, incidentally, were originally on a four-track E.P., not on the album.

The album is very progressive in style and very different to the period when Thin Lizzy became superstars. However if Thin Lizzy had carried on in this vain, they would have created great music. The album is folky sounding in places and even moving. This album contains the original album, along with the EP and then 1977 remixes of various songs from the album and EP.

It is essential listening for all Lizzy fans and I would recommend it to any progressive music fans who might not be so keen on Thin Lizzy's later classic rock style.

I am reviewing the promo copy so I cannot comment on the album sleeve notes/design.

Occasionally you discover something you never expected. This is just that. Yes, there are the early signs of what was to come such as the live-friendly "Return of the Fathers Son" and the rousing "Old Moon Madness". But there is so much more to Thin Lizzy on this box of tricks. From the inspired "Friendly Ranger" to the beautiful "Eire" and "Ageing Orphan", I can't remember being so enthralled with an old classic since I picked up Jethro Tull's "Benefit" a few years ago. Like that cd, there is just so much going on with Thin Lizzy's debut you can never get bored. Lynott's voice is just mesmerizing. If it's not already in your 1970's collection of great albums, then your collection just isn't complete.

Rather than review the music on this album (which many other people have already done), it might be handy for some people to know about the vinyl re-issue from Light In The Attic which I purchased from a Amazon Marketplace seller recently. It comes in a heavy duty gatefold sleeve with the original UK Decca artwork on the front & rear of the sleeve and inside the gatefold you get the original US London records artwork. The front of the sleeve also has a Japanese style obi strip which gives details to any potential purchasers in a record shop (are there any left?).
Also included in the package is a 4 page booklet which gives extensive background information to the making of their first LP and an interview with Eric Bell plus some B&W photos. There is also a large poster included & a Light In The Attic 32 page mini magazine which has articles on their other releases.
The vinyl is 180g in weight and sounds very good with no pressing blemishes that I can hear or see. A lovely sound utilizing a 24bit/96kHz mastering from the original tapes. And to put the cherry on top of the whole package, the original UK Decca labels are reproduced on the record itself.
All in all a superb vinyl re-issue which puts a lot of other companies to shame. If only all re-issues were like this.
4 stars for the music (reviewed many times elsewhere as previously mentioned) & 5 stars for the Light In The Attic edition.
