Product Description

Product Description

THIN LIZZY

Amazon.co.uk

When Thin Lizzy decamped to Canada to unwind from a year of incident and illness, the result was Bad Reputation, which sounds, if not exactly laid-back, then at least damn smooth: Phil Lynott is confident enough to loosen Lizzy's atomic boogie and open his writing to jazz and folk influences, while the band are (despite their shifting membership at the time) tighter than ever, playing with a new delicacy, less force, more thought. Scott Gorham emerges as a genuinely original guitarist, Tony Visconti's production sharpens the edges of their sound, and in the title track, "Southbound" and "Dancing In The Moonlight", Lizzy are at their handsome, deep-blue best. --Taylor Parkes

This album is timeless! Most people would rate "Black Rose" as Lizzy's best, but over the years I always come back to this album. This is the most diverse album any rock band can offer. From the opening strains of "Soldier of Fortune" to "Dear Lord", this LP has it all. Everytime I listen to this LP it seems to have a shifting feel to it, giving a different sound, a different perspective. Visconti shows the he was and still is a producer extraordinare. So-called current 'rock bands' need to use this LP as a blueprint, this is how it's done!

After the bad taste the last 3 Lizzy Deluxe Editions seem to leave in many fans mouths (advertised as new remasters, Universal simply used the 1996 versions and didn’t change the booklets or adverts) – I’m glad to say this reissue of Lizzy’s much-loved 8th album “Bad Reputation” is a real improvement on the former 1996 outing - and packs some nice surprises in the bonus department too. Here are the Soldiers of Fortune…

UK released June 2011 - "Bad Reputtaion" by THIN LIZZY on Universal/Mercury 2772693 (Barcode 602527726939) is an 'Expanded Edition' CD Remaster with Six Bonus Tracks and plays out as follows (57:24 minutes):

1. Soldier Of Fortune
2. Bad Reputation
3. Opium Trail
4. Southbound
5. Dancing in The Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight)
6. Killer Without A Cause
7. Downtown Sundown
8. That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart
9. Dear Lord
Tracks 1 to 9 are the original LP "Bad Reputation" released 2 September 1977 on Vertigo Records 9102 016 in the UK and on Mercury SRM1-1186 in the USA. It peaked at Number 4 in the UK album charts and at 49 in the US.

BONUS TRACKS:
10. Killer Without A Cause (BBC Session, 1 August 1977)
11. Bad Reputation (BBC Session, 1 August 1977)
12. That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart (BBC Session, 1 August 1977)
13. Dancing In Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight) (BBC Session, 1 August 1977)
14. Downtown Sundown (BBC Session, 1 August 1977)

UNLIKE THE OTHER RECENT BATCH OF THIN LIZZY REIISUES,BAD REPUTATION IS AN EXPANDED
EDITION, NOT A DELUXE ( TWO DISC EDITIONS)AND JUST A SINGLE DISC AND AS SUCH WAS
LESS EXPENSIVE THAN THE DELUXE EDITIONS.
THE FINE DEATAILS:
THE DISC I HAVE (ORDERED FROM AMAZON/INDIGO STARFISH)WAS MADE IN GERMANY(BY PDO?)
AND AS WITH THE DELUXE EDITIONS STATES ON THE CD BOOKLET THAT IT WAS REMASTERED IN
2010 BY ANDY PEARCE AND MATT WORTHAM AT WIRED MASTERS.TO THOSE OF US WHO ARE
INTERESTED IN SUCH THINGS,WE NOW KNOW THAT ON THE PREVIOUS DELUXE EDITIONS OF
JAILBREAK,JOHNNY THE FOX AND LIVE AND DANGEROUS TWO BAND MEMBERS ( PRESUMABLY
SCOTT GORHAM AND BRIAN DOWNEY)REJECTED THE 2010 REMASTERS IN FAVOUR OF SOME
REMASTERS FROM 2002 PRODUCED FOR DISCS RELEASED FOR THE JAPANESE MARKETS.I OWN ALL OF THESE DELUXE EDITIONS AND THE SOUND OF THESE REMASTERS IS VERY GOOD,THE FACT
THAT WE WERE LED TO BELIEVE(IT WAS PRINTED ON ALL OF THE CD BOOKLETS)THAT WE WERE
GETTING NEW 2010 REMASTERS WAS MISLEADING TO SAY THE LEAST,NOT TO MENTION THE
NUMEROUS OTHER MISTAKES WITH THE TRACKLISTINGS AND WITH THE LIVE AND DANGEROUS
RELEASE A DVD THAT WAS INFERIOR IN QUALITY TO THE ONE THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN ON
RELEASE.GETTING BACK TO THIS RELEASE OF BAD REPUTATION,WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR
MONEY ? THE ORIGINAL ALBUM REMASTERED ( IN 2010 ? THIS REMAINS TO BE SEEN)WITH BONUS TRACKS ALSO REMASTERED COMPRISING FIVE OF THE TRACKS FROM THE ALBUM FROM BBC
SESSIONS MADE IN AUGUST 1977 A MONTH BEFORE THE ALBUM'S RELEASE.FOUR OF THESE BBC
SESSIONS WERE RELEASED PREVIOUSLY ON THE PEEL SESSIONS CD WHICH IS NOW OUT OF
PRINT.THE FIFTH TRACK FROM THESE SESSIONS IS DOWNTOWN SUNDOWN.THE SIXTH BONUS TRACK IS A LIVE VERSION OF ME AND THE BOYS.

Bad Reputation,the title says it all.This is an astounding hard rock album which certainly stands the test of time.
This new version is still a single disc,but what a disc, containing some of Thin Lizzy's best ever recorded material.
The story goes that after helping out Frankie Miller in a fight Guitarist Brian Robertson's hand injury prevented him from playing on this album, but during the recording sessions Lynott decided that some of the tracks needed the Scotsman's distinctive"crunch".The proof is in the pudding as they say and the pudding here is the solo's by Robertson and fellow guitarist Scott Gorham. Some of the most melodic tracks Lizzy had done up to this point.Hit single "Dancing in the moonlight"
being one of the bands best loved songs and the two ballads "Southbound" and "Dear Lord" showing Lynott's romantic side.
Once again the remastering by Andy Pearce is full of bounce and is very sympathetic to the original sound.
The extras this time are mostly BBC session recordings and are a bit limp.Some nice period photos and a new essay on the recording of the (Original) album round things off nicely.
