Very strong collection of Lizzy's finest
on 11 September 2015
As there are a number of similar Thin Lizzy compilation albums out there in the market place, it is difficult to say which is the most comprehensive; suffice to say that this collection covers plenty of ground and demonstrates just how powerful this band were during the 1970's and early 1980's. The highlights for me include the hard rocking tracks such as 'Jailbreak', 'Don't Believe A Word' and 'Waiting For An Alibi' as well as Phil Lynott's sublimely mellow moments on the likes of 'Dancin' In The Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight') and the lovely 'Sarah'. The collaborations with Gary Moore (especially on the wonderful 'Parisienne Walkways) are definitely worthy of inclusion and the running order is completed by the classy debut hit 'Whiskey In The Jar'. All in all, this is a very well executed project and fans of the band will definitely appreciate this product.
