5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal and "Still Dangerous" Indeed!!, 25 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Still Dangerous: Live at Tower Theatre Philadelphia 1977 (Audio CD)
I was sceptical at first when I heard the rumours about these "lost live tapes". But I can now assure You that this is the real deal. The recordings are sparkling with energy thanks to Glyn Johns amazing remixes.
It's a rock n roll train that Lizzy delivers and they were at the top of their game in 1977.

Back in 1978 Tony Visconti did an amazing job on Live and Dangerous and it's still one of the essential hard rock albums of their era. After listening through the tracks it's obvious that Cowboy song and Boys are back in town are the same versions that appeared on LaD. The difference are that the backround vocals were overdubbed on LaD. But this time we can here it 100% and much more raw and fresch.

Opium Trail, Solder of furtune and Me and the boys are much welcome in this set (that didn't survive on LaD).

Thanks to the new digital technology they have saved 12 tracks. Some of these live recordings hadn't survived the test of time and couldn't be remixed up to the standard of these tracks that made the album. The missing link on the album is that they didn't include the essential songs Emerald and Bad reputation. (You can buy them through iTunes).

As a Lizzy supporter I'm climbing walls of excitment. This album proves that Lizzy are "still dangerous" indeed. And Phil Lynott wrote som of the most classic hard rock songs in history. Support the legacy... buy the album. It's a big surprise and you will not be disapointed.

If you want the whole original gig without any reference to Glyn Johns, Tony Visconti or overdubs (!) then look no further...
