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.

Thin Lizzy One Night Only 1996

One Night Only is a live by the reformed Thin Lizzy.

It is a souvenir of the comeback tour in 1996 after the 10th anniversary of the death of group leader Phil Lynott.

I find it tough to think of the group as Thin Lizzy without their singer, bass player and writer. That image from the front of the Live & Dangerous album cover is so iconic that it defines my thoughts of the band.

Thin Lizzy Still Dangerous 1977

Still Dangerous is a live album was recorded in Philadelphia in October 1977 while Thin Lizzy were promoting the Bad Reputation studio album.

This is a similar time to the more famous Live & Dangerous album but there have been doubts about the extent that album was retouched in the studio after the concerts.

This on the other hand is Thin Lizzy raw and unpolished and shows what Live & Dangerous could have sounded like.
