7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Philip Baird on 24 Oct. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My personal favourite of all the Lizzy recordings successfully blends Phil's early foray into folk myth and lyricism with Eric Bell's stinging stratocaster, Brian Downey's superb drumming (he's vastly under-rated) and of course Phil's playboy gypsy swagger and wonderful Rickenbacker tone and inventiveness. Their early promise was fulfilled on 'Vagabonds' before they went off in a new direction to mega stardom.

Although you can't help loving everything the great Phil Lynott did, I feel Thin Lizzy lost an essential element of their sound and appeal when they adopted the twin guitar line-up that took them to a wider audience. Perhaps Lynott couldn't afford to be so indulgent again; once he found the formula - he stuck to it, and you can't argue with that. I suspect too that he could exert more control over the band once Eric Bell left, as although he was and is a fabulous and inspired player, you always get the sense with Eric that he needed reining in. When he keeps his playing tight and concise, as he mostly does on this album, he is a beautifully gifted player with a touch and feel like Clapton's, and his contribution to the success of this record is as great as Lynott's.

Of the tracks on the original album, perhaps the opening Mama Nature Said sounds the most dated and it was always perhaps the weakest inclusion; but it's held up by what comes after. I always loved The Hero and the Madman, and although Tolkienesque wizardry and quest legend usually leave me cold; the inventive telling, playing and structure of the track really shines. There is some lovely bass playing and drumming and the outro solo by Eric is breathtaking in its attack and lyricism; perfectly complimenting and rounding out Lynott's wholly original composition.

Format: Audio CD
To my knowledge this troubled 'DELUXE EDITION' on Decca 984 194-9 (Barcode 602498419496) has had no less than 7 release dates - May, July and November of 2007 were first cited, then January, February and April of 2008 - and now it finally arrives Monday 18 October 2010 without the tiniest bit of fanfare. It has a 2007 Copyright date on the rear so it's effectively been delayed three and a half years. But has it been worth the wait - yes absolutely. But to the considerable details first...

Disc 1 (77:52 minutes):
1. Mama Nature Said
2. The Hero And The Madman
3. Slow Blues
4. The Rocker
5. Vagabond Of The Western World
6. Little Girl In Bloom
7. Gonna Creep Up On You
8. A Song For While I'm Away
Tracks 1 to 8 are their 3rd album "Vagabonds Of The Western World" released 21 September 1973 in the UK on Decca SKL 5170.
(It was released as London XPS 636 in the USA, but contained a very-slightly edited version of "Little Girl In Bloom"; it's the full UK version that is used here)

Tracks 9 and 10 are their 2nd UK 7" single from May 1973, "Randolph's Tango" and "Broken Dreams". Both tracks on Decca F 13402 were non-album at the time.
(Note: the version of "Randolph's Tango" that is used here is known as the 'Full Version' at 3:49 minutes - the promo-only 7" edit at 2:25 minutes is Track 17)

Tracks 11 and 12 are their 3rd UK 7" single and the first to feature a track off the album. "The Rocker" was issued as a 7" single in the UK in November 1973 on Decca F 13467 and is an edited version (2:41 as opposed to the album's 5:12 minutes). It was backed with another non-album Phil Lynott track, the jaunty "Here I Go Again".

Track 13, "Cruising In The Lizzymobile" is non-album also.

Format: Audio CD
It would be wrong to call this album a departure from the traditional Thin Lizzy sound as it preceeds most of their major hits but "The Rocker" apart it's not the same sound. It's more Bluesey and less cocky and of course they were a three piece at the time. That's not to say it doesn't work. Far from it. It's an excellent listen from start to finish and a worthy effort for a band so early into a career who were under pressure to come up a with album they could shift. At this period Lizzy were struggling to pay the bills but rather than rush an album out like they did with "Shades of a Blue Orphanage" they took their time over this one and it shows. It has a lovely mix of songs and on the two ballads ("Slow Blues" and the stunning "Little Girl In Bloom") you can see where future anthems like "Dancing In The Moonlight" were first concieved. There's Plenty of decent rock-outs as well notably "Mama Nature Said" (was this the first rock band writing about the environment?), "The Rocker" and "The Hero and The Madman". The albums title track has an amazing mix of rock and the band's Irish roots (dare you to listen and not fancy a pint of the black stuff halfway through!!) which is truly inventive.

In summary it's a top bit of work with a mixed pace of sounds that plays well all the way through. Lizzy fans will love it and people that have heard of them probably will too.

Format: Audio CD
From the start of this Album to the last bar excellent, no fillers -all is inspired. Eric Bell, Brian Downey and Mr Lynott Excel and is an example of The Early Thin Lizzy period, have seen some people write on here that they enjoy only early or late Lizzy but to me the songwrting and the sheer artistry is present in all that greets yoru grateful ears and years of abuse of those organs has not dampened my enthusiasm, Bad Reputation was one of the first albums I ever bought and my collection is just about complete, I wore my 'Bad Reputation' LP out thank goodness for CD's!!! this is certainly one of my favorite Albums, The Hero is mystical, Little girl in bloom -interesting and clever and the outro guitar solo superb, Broken dream, WOW! through my life I have come back to Lynott many times and found renewed interest and undertstanding for his beliefs values and lyrics and I still find pleasure in the skill of the musicians involved, Fav album?? perhaps Nightlife? or maybe Bad Rep, Or Black Rose? or Jailbreak? or.......... got to go and play one now!!
