5.0 out of 5 stars 2011 Expanded Deluxe Edition, 2 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Chinatown (Audio CD)
Fine remaster of the hard rock masterpiece that is Chinatown. Maybe a little too bright for my standards, but still a good sounding album, and certainly beats the 2002 Wounded Bird CD. Disc 2 is where the real goodies are. It features the B sides from the Killer On The Loose single, including the live tracks from the special double pack. Whisky In The Jar from the special limited edition issue of Phil Lynott's Nineteen that was released shortly after his passing, tracks from the Killers Live EP, and some soundchecks only previously available on The Man And His Music bootlegs. All of you real Lizzy fans know what I'm talking about, and they're all in superior quality. All of the info you need regarding the origin of the recordings on Disc 2, excluding the soundchecks as they're from a boot, can be found on the back on the extended liner notes that are so cozily slipped into the flip out digipack. I only found one type while reading through the liner notes. It's a miracle! Anyone who got the Jailbreak or Johnny The Fox deluxe batches know how many mistakes there were. It's not a big deal as it just a letter left off of "they" I believe it was. Funny how the liner notes talk about Phil and the boys visiting a porno shop in Chinatown, and there being men all around in the big long brown coats. I couldn't help but chuckle and having the Killer On The Loose video play in my head. Now the mystery has finally been solved. The only complaint I have with this is the packaging. Instead of getting the hard plastic cover with the Deluxe Edition logo on it, you get a little sticker banner going over the digipack, and you have to cut through it to get to the cd's. If you peel it off slowly, you should be able to get away with not damaging the artwork, but I just left mine on as it looks nice. Correct track listing down below.
