  • This easily ranks up there with the greatest live albums of all time. I bought it on vinyl when it first came out. Phil Lynott has one of the most unique voices in rock, ever! Oh, and he can play bass ok, too. Thin Lizzy has always had amazing energy on stage and this just proves it. My faves are “Holy War” (great bass riff) and “Cold Sweat” (amazing guitar solo). But the whole album is just pure Lizzy energy. I am so happy they were able to get everybody together before the untimely death of Lynott in 1986 (The rock & roll lifestyle finally caught up with him). If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

  • Man, I’m crying to say that, but I cannot be dishonest on how I feel when I listen to this double live album. Phil Lynott is a genius songwriter and one hell of a bassist, and his band Thin Lizzy, from a period of 1975 – 1979, and again briefly in 1983, were the most powerful band in the world! Studio or on stage they were a take-no-prisoners act and no one came even close! Their 1978 live release, Live and Dangerous, became a landmark release and displayed to every other band out their how a live album should sound. Energetic, powerful, chock full of good riffs, the dual lead guitars just ripping right through you, it’s an album I will never ever forget about it! But this 1984 live effort is weak. The idea worked on paper to bring past guitarist onstage for their signature songs when they were in the band, and in concert it was amazing to witness this. But the resulting product is lackluster. The performance isn’t as captivating as Live & Dangerous, the sound quality is terrible throughout, and Lynott is not audible. For fans of Lizzy, looking for a true keeper from the 1983 line-up and
    tour (with smokin John Sykes on guitar), should look for the live at the BBC InConcert release, released on an import label about 5 years ago. The concert is from London in 1983 and features a complete show and it is the true follow-up to the Live & Dangerous album. Thin Lizzy still had the fire in 1983, it’s just not documented on the Live Life release.

  • The last live Lizzy release features the 1983 lineup with John Sykes/Scott Gorham tearing up the axe duties with the various guitarists featured throughout the Lizzy career according to song. Eric Bell, Gary Moore, Snowy White, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson, and John Sykes all get the chance to cut heads again with the man himself in this heavily edited effort. I swear that Dave Flett (of Manfred Mann fame) even gets to get his chance on stage here but I’m not sure to who gets credit here on what song! The set lists contains a host of vintage Lizzy with a heavy portion given to the 1983 lineup featuring the Sykes/Gorham head-cutters. The songs are delivered with fury and mayhem as one would expect from a Lizzy concert, with much more intensity than the “Live and Dangerous” LP. Contrary to many hard-core Lizzy reviews, this albums brings the fire and brimstone right in the face of the listener without asking for quarter. Hands down to me this is the most bruising, face-kicking, barroom brawling Thin LIzzy live effort ever commited to vinyl. Strong portions to note are Johns Sykes amazing solo in “Still Loving You”, possibly the most emotional solo ever layed down, be it over-dubbed or not. It just burns white-hot! Other hot spots are “Thunder and Lightening”,”Angel of Death” and “Waiting for an AlibI” Scott Gorham performance is of note because he rarely ever leaves the stage, but delivers memorable solo after memorable solo. I can’t say enough about Gorham’s contribution to rock and roll guitar. The man has quietly went about his business and carved himself out a reputation of delivering some of the most bruising, beautiful, guitar ever set in wax, and I, for one, am thankful for his contribution. I’ve spent many hours trying to capture his brutal vibrato and note selection on guitar (the man bends notes like a BEAR), and walk away session after session appreciating his work. He is truly an unsung hero in the Thin Lizzy saga. But I digress, “Live Life” brings a resounding close to the Thin Lizzy portion of rock and roll’s brief history, and delivers the close with a wink and a punch, much the way Phil Lynott lived his life, hard and fast. The world is a less cool place since the black Irishman has left us for a better world, but I never forget to think about him regularly. If you don’t know the music of Phil Lynott, I would suggest you would be a better person for taking the effort to make his work known to you. You’ll thank him for it in the end. God Bless Phil Lynott.

  • This album is Thin Lizzy’s farewell tour. The songs are delivered with intensity and excitement. ‘Don’t Believe a Word’ is a slower version originally recorded by Gary Moore and Phil on Gary’s ‘Back on the Streets’ LP. Sykes and Gorham play in all the songs (Gorham – Thin Lizzy’s longest lasting guitarist is at his best). All Thin Lizzy’s past guitar players play on this album: Snowy White on ‘Renegade’, and Gary Moore, Brian Robertson, and Eric Bell are back together for the last four songs giving Thin Lizzy 5 lead guitarists. Brian is featured on ‘Emerald’, Gary on ‘Black Rose’ and Eric on ‘The Rocker’.Phil sounds a bit rougher than ‘Live and Dangerous’ but his lyrics are relaxed with his usual much adlibbing.The sound quality is great. The graphics are shrunk from the original LP so all the credits are microscopic and the pictures are quite small.This album is a reissue, and reissues go out of print, so don’t delay if this is on your wish list.
