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

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.Read more ›
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.

One of the four great Lizzy albums, along with Jailbreak, Live and Dangerous and Black Rose. Probably the hardest and heaviest of the bunch, which is no bad thing.Published 9 months ago by David Mansfield
