5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful collection from a brilliant songwriter., 31 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Wild One: The Very Best of Thin Lizzy (Audio CD)
This may get me killed, or at least beaten badly, but to me, Phil Lynott is the king of Rock 'n' Roll! This collection starts off with Thin Lizzy's biggest hit ("The Boys Are Back In Town") which is oddly enough, not one of their best songs. There's magic in tracks such as "Don't Believe A Word","Emerald" and "Bad Reputation" as the classic guitar duo of Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson lets it rip with Phil's powerful, soulful vocals at the fore. This band was training ground for the great John Sykes (who later wrote the HUGE Whitesnake 1987 LP) and the legend we know as Gary Moore who can be heard here on the track which is considered by many to be his signature song, "Parisienne Walkways". Throughout their entire catalog, propelling the songs with some of the best rock drumming ever heard is the criminally underrated Brian Downey. Fourteen years after Lynott's tragic death, a reformed version of the band led by Gorham and Sykes have been gigging across Europe in tribute to their late friend. The fact that these shows consistantly sell out is further proof that great music is timeless and never really goes out of style. You're immortal, Phillip. Rest In Peace.

Strange how the track "Wild one" isn't on it though.
