3.0 out of 5 stars Overall great deluxe edition with one major glitch (wrong mix), 24 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fighting [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
The main album is very well mastered, and I don't say that very often of new remasters (I often find them too loud or too bright or unnaturally EQ'd). It's the best mastering I have heard so far (but I haven't yet been able to track down a 1st Japanese pressing).

The bonus material is also nice, we get some unreleased songs which are really good. I also like the sound of the 3 BBC session tracks on this DE a little better than the sound on the Live at the BBC box set which was released last year. These tracks sound a little less bright on this DE compared to the box set, which I do prefer (others might feel the opposite).

BUT there is really one major glitch on this release. Track 2 on disc 2 is not the US Mix of "Rosalie" as stated, it repeats the UK mix which is already on disc 1 (track 1). It is a different mastering/transfer, so they sound slightly different, but it is certainly no the US mix which runs about 20 seconds longer and is really a different mix which sounds way different.

I hope that Universal will rectify the problem and manufacture a replacement disc with the correct US Mix of "Rosalie".

Without this glitch, it would be easily 5 stars. I could give it 4 stars with the glitch, but I decided to go with 3 stsrs at the moment so that hopefully this glitch will get some more attention.

You are correct about the error. The US mix is WAY different and for this DE to be definitive they need to correct this error and send replacement discs to the hardcore fans who pre-ordered this release. I will contact Amazon and Universal.

For those who are curious, the "Dedication" compilation contains the US Mix of "Rosalie". Listen to that and you'll hear the many differences.

Only the US CD version of the compilation "Dedication" has the US mix of "Rosalie", the UK version of that compilation has a different track list. If you want to check that mix out, you have to go to the US Amazon website.

The glitch is frustrating because this is the best sounding digital version I have heard and I have heard most if not all. I am keeping the set in hope that Universal will issue a corrected second disc.

I did wonder why I could find no discernible difference between the two versions on this deluxe edition! Disappointing that some of the old Thin Lizzy deluxe gremlins have made a return. Any news yet from Universal on this?

I contacted Universal Music about this, but I have not received any response (yet).

This is just the latest in a long line of mess-ups with these Thin Lizzy Deluxe Editions over the last year or so. (Read my reviews on these to find out more). There were so many mess-ups with the first three (Jailbreak, Johnny The Fox and Live And Dangerous) that Universal were forced to correct the mistakes and issue corrected versions. The only problem was that the supposed corrected versions still featured some of the errors that were supposed to be corrected. Being a massive Thin Lizzy fan I feel I could've done a ten times better job compiling and designing these Thin Lizzy Deluxe Editons. It baffles me how Universal keep missing these mistakes, yet members of the public notice them straight away. Shame on you Universal!

I got word from Steve Hammonds at Universal that they are working on a replacement disc for those who already purchased, and future repressings will have the correct version. No word on when this will happen, but it sounded like it would be soon. Don't know if the merchants will be sending the replacement or if Universal is handling that. If I find out, I'll let y'all know.
