This review is from: Jailbreak (Audio CD)
Beautifully packaged pristine sounding classic Thin Lizzy album. (They screwed up though on Disc Two track listing as a previous reviewer noted)
The first thing that jumped out at me was Brian Downeys drumming and Its restoration for 2011 is the backbone of this album as far as I'm concerned. Gorham and Robertsons Les Pauls also shine like newly polished silverwear.
The other highlight for me are the BBC Sessions recorded a month before the album was released in February 76.
Jailbreak, Emerald and Warriors from these sessions sound better than the album versions.
I personally thought Bad Reputation was Lizzys best studio album and would love to hear that remastered sometime, but this album gets five stars for being first of all 1976s Jailbreak but also for the work that has obviously went into its restoration for 2011.
