About this item
Formed as a trio in Dublin, Ireland circa '69 THIN LIZZY didn't surge into the platinum leagues till their '76 break through "Jailbreak", via the classic Lynott, Robertson, Gorham & Downey line up; which ultimately unleashed the No.12 charting single "The Boys Are Back In Town". Mixing Springsteen-esque poetry with street fighting imagery, "The Boys..." has since been featured in films as varied as "Toy Story" and TV shows like "My Name Is Earl"; fostering covers by such unlikely brethren as Bon Jovi and Pearl Jam.
In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine named "The Boys..." as one of it's Top 500 songs of all time. In 2009, it will re-enter the mainstream via an aggressive VH1 Classic TV campaign for Still Dangerous, and it's inclusion into gaming sensation Rock Band.
Bouts with hepatitis and hand injuries sidelined Lynott and Robertson in late '76. 1977's "Bad Reputation" saw a return to form, leading to the legendary 1978 Live And Dangerous album; of which Kerrang! Magazine deemed No.50 amongst it's 100 Best Heavy Metal Albums (between Aerosmith's Toys In The Attic & Black Sabbath Vol. 4). Culled from the same tour that produced Live And Dangerous; Still Dangerous strikes a balance between classics and gems that have never appeared on any Lizzy live album; taking it's place as an all time great rock and roll sequel...the boys are back, indeed!
