This is simply a stunning collection that features not only most of the big hits but also many other Lizzy classics that seldom appear on a 'best of'. Together with two cuts from 'Live And Dangerous' and 'Jailbreak' from a BBC session, this album is a perfect companion to Spectrum's earlier compilations 'Whiskey In The Jar', 'The Hero And The Madman' and 'Classic Thin Lizzy'. Whereas these sets concentrated on the earlier studio albums, 'Waiting For An Alibi' is Lizzy at their commercial peak.
Wrapped in truly beautiful artwork, this jewel case release also includes a detailed 8 page booklet with liner notes from compiler Malcolm Dome and some great photo's of Phil and the boys. A perfect partner to the recent 'Yellow Pearl' best of (which focused on Phil's solo material), this album marks yet again Spectrum's vastly improved quality and design. Not only is this a perfect introduction for new listeners and a treat for fans, but at this price, is simply a must have!
Five stars isn't high enough.
