Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Live And Dangerous
On this day in 1978, Thin Lizzy released LIVE AND DANGEROUS, a double album cut on tour in Philadelphia, London and Toronto over the previous two years. While the “live” designation is debatable (some recordings were sweetened in the studio with producer Tony Visconti), the latter half of the album's title is right on the money. These storming performances show the Irish hard rockers at the very peak of their form on 17 originals including such Lizzy favorites as “Jailbreak,” “Cowboy Song,” “Dancing In The Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight)” and “The Boys Are Back In Town.” Raise those butane lighters and crank the volume up to 11 - LIVE AND DANGEROUS is a sweat-soaked celebration from start to finish, and one of the greatest concert albums of the 1970s.
