5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Live & Dangerous!, 11 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Still Dangerous: Live At The Tower Theatre Philadelphia 1977 (Audio CD)
For years Thin Lizzy's legendary performance from the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia has been the 'holy grail' of Lizzy's live work. The band performed two nights at the Tower, Oct 20th and 21st, 1977 on the band's 'Bad Reputation' tour. The 20th is the fabled King Biscuit radio performance, bootlegged but never officially released, whereas 'Still Dangerous' is from the second night and is a must have for all Thin Lizzy fans.
Discovered in a dusty lock-up a couple of years ago by guitarist Scott Gorham, the tapes that became 'Still Dangerous' have been lovingly restored and re-mixed by celebrated produced Glyn Johns (with help from Scott) and capture's Thin Lizzy at the absolute height of their powers.
Sadly time wasn't too kind to all the tapes and only 12 tracks were salvaged (the Japanese version and I Tunes version will feature 'Emerald' and 'Bad Reputation' missing from this version) but the music they rescued is simply stunning. From Downey's fantastic, groove-informed drumming, to Gorham and Brian Robertson's tight as you like guitar work onto Phil Lynott's effortless bass playing and iconic voice, you'll be hard pushed to find a better Thin Lizzy performance.
Adding 'Soldier Of Fortune', 'Me And The Boys' and a spectacular 'Opium Trail' to definitive versions of live favourites such as 'Massacre', 'Dancing In The Moonlight', 'Jailbreak' and 'Don't Believe A Word', 'Still Dangerous' is an essential addition to the Thin Lizzy canon and whether you're a long time fan or a relative newcomer to the band, 'Still Dangerous' proves once and for all why Thin Lizzy are still regarded as one of the greatest live bands to ever grace a stage.

Nice accurate write up.
Lizzy deserve to be remebered with fondness and recordings like this and the review from blackrose are how Lizzy should be recalled, particularly from those like us that witnessed them in their prime and have utter contempt for the recent garbage thats been released in the last few years that should never have been -Spot on.
