Thin Lizzy – What Pete Pardo Thinks

Another set of videos from Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website, this time looking at the hard rock band Thin Lizzy.

A fantastic band in the 70s and 80s and of course they have produced one of the greatest live albums ever released in Live And Dangerous. Two other live albums, UK Tour 1975 and Life Live also deserve plenty of attention and go backwards and forwards in time from L&D.

Over to Pete.

The Who – What Pete Pardo says

I’ve posted some videos from Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website on The Who.

The Who are responsible for one of the all-time greatest live albums in The Who Live At Leeds (along with two other live performances from the same year in The Who Live At Hull and The Who Live At The Isle Of Wight).

Yet they are also a band that frustrates me.

We’ve had a stack of live albums from their various revivals but we’re short of that blockbuster they must have in the can from the mid 1970s. The best of the post 1970 live albums by The Who is The Blues To The Bush, in my opinion.
