Listen to one of the great live concert bands ever.
While Thin Lizzy had a handful of classic rock radio nuggets, I'd still put them up with lesser known in the US artists like Rory Gallagher, where they had a great discography full of good songs. There are still a couple Gallagher records I haven't got, but I think I have all of Thin Lizzy's studio records and a few live things. All I have heard is
worth checking out.
I dig Rory's work but he wasn't the song writer of Phil Lynott. Unfortunately Rory's output has some filler in it, whereas most Thin Lizzy (except for the last 2 or 3 albums) was all killer.
I was listening to the Cowboy Song in the car with my family the other day. The first solo arrived, and there is this floating note that is just glorious...I've heard it dozens (hundreds?) of times, but I was still thinking, "family, why aren't you all blown away by this?" Needless to say, they said nothing and basically just hated the music. Typical. I have failed as a dad and husband apparently.
