A live Thin Lizzy album is not high on my list of things I want to listen to. The music is pretty middle of the road and this album lacked the energy of most good live albums. Turns out, that's because Thin Lizzy straight up cheated and overdubbed a bunch of the parts after the fact. So it's only kinda live. The result is a the audio equivalent of flat beer. You can taste what it should be and it'll deliver alcohol... But it's just not enjoyable.

I'm not a fan of this one. There is so much guitar/bass/drums music from the 70s, I really had enough of it. I can only remember fondly or listen to G/B/D bands that had something really special (originality or virtuoso musicians). And this isn't the case with this group and album. Yeah the guitar, bass and drums are good but there are many better and moreover there is nothing original about the instrument playing or songwriting that makes me want to keep listening. The 70s had guitar phenoms so good they could that they could make a band that's not original stand out. Jimmy Page was so good he made Led Zep good. (Overplayed to the point I can't listen to them anymore but that's another story). The guitars don't get Thin LIz there. The bass player is also good but what is he doing that Entwistle hadn't done years earlier and a lot better? The drummer's slapping the gong at the end of Southbound puts a cherry on my point that they are followers rather than leaders. I thought even Kiss was ringing the gong before Thin Liz. How embarrassing is that? I'm was a little surprised to learn there are two guitar players but I did hear duelling solos. This would have been fun to see in concert but having two guitars also gives the opportunity for consistently good rhythm and there is really not much rhythm guitar to get excited about. I planned to listen until they played Boys are Back in Town but ended up listening to it all. Unfortunately, I was reminded of the worst part of 70s rock concerts: the tiresome drum solo. The 2+ minutes of TL's drum solo are minutes I will not get back and could've spent listening to more of the 1001 albums I need to listen to. Fothermucker! Apologies to any TL fans out there. Also apologies in advance to fans of "The Song Remains the Same" if that's on the 1001. That bad boy will get max 1 star based solely on the length of the drum solo.

Glorious, seemingly effortless hard rock. Some absolute classic tracks. Fave track - on this play through, "Massacre" really jumped out at me. Tends to get overshadowed by their more well known tunes, but it landed for me this time...

Awesome album. Such a distinctive sound both musically and vocally. Dancing in the moonlight is the best song amongst many great songs. It kind of reminded me of a Van song, who was idolised by Phil Lynott and whose bandmates in Them, later joined Thin Lizzy.

I was already predisposed to enjoying the tough guy streetwalker tracks that still get radio play, and the slower more romantic songs are well done even if they're not my preference, but the more intense songs about historical violence that Iron Maiden basically took wholesale blew me away (and sure enough, as I write this I discover that Maiden actually did in fact record a cover of Massacre). They're lucky this album kicks as much ass as it does, or I would've been more upset about the blatant overdubbing. Key Tracks: Emerald, Massacre, Cowboy Song

Let's just get this right out of the way early: Huey Lewis is on this album, playing harmonica on "Baby Drives Me Crazy". So this automatically gets 2 stars just for that surprising little nugget. And I'm not especially a Huey Lewis fan at all. Thin Lizzy gets my consideration as one of the more underrated bands of all-time. Most people only know them for "The Boys Are Back In Town" (a stellar version of which appears here as part of a seamless one-two punch with "Cowboy Song"). Most of Thin Lizzy's output holds up quite well. I don't usually like live albums, but I love this one. I wouldn't be upset to also find the Jailbreak album on this list. Apparently there's a sector of folks who immediately dismiss this album, claiming it's "overdubbed". Don't ALL Live albums have overdubs? The only unpolished live albums are bootlegs. And down at Dino's Bar'n'Grill the drink will flow and blood will spill, and if the boys wanna fight, you better let 'em.

I tend to not love live albums unless there is something really unique in the performance. This one, being a double album, I found to drag on a bit toward the end. I liked the 4 song run between "Dancing in the Moonlight" and "Johnny the Fox," gravitating more toward the slower songs.

A double live album that's pulled from several different shows and later overdubbed is bound to be rather unenjoyable, and that's before considering that it's mediocre 70s rock. I have no idea how this made anybody's list of essential albums. Completely disposable. Best track: Massacre

Rollicking good time. Surprised how much I like this band! I'm glad to discover so much beyond "The Boys Are Back in Town." Also, I always thought they were American. That voice sounds like a cross between Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen, and lyrics have a similar quality to many of their songs.. But it turns out they're Irish, which just interests me more.

Listened Before? N Holy S**T! What an amazing introduction to Thin Lizzy. This live album is an absolute masterpiece from beginning to end. Banger after banger lined up in a row. The lead guitar is absolutely face-melting in every song, and the band's energy is full-tilt. I am unsure how I have basically completely missed this band until now. Everyone knows "The Boys are Back in Town", and I was familiar with "Jailbreak" but every other song here is wonderful as well. I see no real cons here. This will be my first 5-star album. Added to Library? Y Songs added to Playlist - The Boys are Back in Town

-"Jailbreak" has some solid riffs and some cool guitar stuff -"Massacre" is a total jam and also the bass slide/riff at 1:17 is gnarly -"Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed" is just a fundamentally great song name -The transition straight from "Cowboy Song" straight into "The Boys Are Back in Town" is cool. Also, "The Boys Are Back in Town" is one of the only 2 Thin Lizzy songs I previously knew (the other being "Cold Sweat") and the bass part seems to be amped up for the live version and I quite like it. -Awesome jams in "Massacre," "Warrior," "Are You Ready," and "Suicide" -Totally awesome live rock album, will absolutely be doing more listening

One of the best live albums I've listened to.There isn't one bad song on the album. And the transition from one track to another is pretty amazing. As I read there is a big debate about how ‘live’ Live and Dangerous is. My opinion is who fckin cares? Live and Dangerous is a great sounding album, it’s perfectly produced and mixed. I'm gonna exclude the 2 songs I already knew, "The Boys are Back in Town" and "Jailbreak". Most favourite tracks from the album: Southbound Rosalie/ Cow girl's song Dancing in the Moonlight Still in Love with You Cowboy Song

Eipä tähänkään oikein ajan hammas ole purrut. Eniten häiritsi se, että tämä on jopa hyvin kliininen livelevyksi. Sen verran wikipedioin, että levy oli koostettu useamman keikan tallenteista. Lisäksi levyä varten oli jonkin verran äänitetty osuuksia päälle studiossa, mutta siitä miten paljon, oli erilaisia näkemyksiä. Vähän taas helppo nelonen tällaiselle very best of the best tallenteelle. Hyvällä mielellä nelonen taas siksi, että The Boys Are Back tuo aina mieleen Vintiöiden sketsit.

I saw Thin Lizzy on this tour in 1978 - they were wonderful, and set the template for hard rocking bands to follow. Les Pauls and Marshalls on the side, bass player in the middle - Big Country, Hanoi Rocks, Guns N Roses and The Supersuckers all made hay on the basic form. This is a cracking live album, even if there are strong suggestions that lots of it was tweaked after the event.

Some amazing songs on this. My bass guitar teacher had me learning loads of Thin Lizzy tracks at one point, so listening to this elicited some nostalgic feelings. That being said, it's perhaps a little too long which makes repeat listens feel a bit of a slog. 3.5 stars, but I'll round up

Feels a really poignant album as it was recorded a few years before they split and Phil Lynott's death. Doesn't capture the 'live' feeling as much as some live albums do, but its a fantastic performance with some absolute tunes on it.

The album listens end-to-end like a classic rock narrative about tough kids living rough lives. Almost like a coming-of-age rock opera following the lives of the youth of a town in the mid 20th century. For me, the absolute bright spot of this album is the explosive intensity of 'Massacre' segued into the lamentation of 'Still in Love With You'. Both songs and performances are phenomenal, but something about them being back-to-back heightens the poignance of both. Overall, the quality of the album (overdubbed or not) did well to maintain the air of a live performance and showcased exactly why Thin Lizzy deserves their place on this list.

Only a handful of live albums on here so far. There is a certain sound and atmosphere from a live album, and while this is not one I ever thought I wanted or needed to hear, it is a decent collection of songs performed by a somewhat underrated band in their heyday. Jailbreak is a sweet track to open a concert with, and I had no idea that Rosalie was a Bob Seger cover. I knew it only as a Thin Lizzy song, and consequently the name of my daughter. While this is not a classic in my mind, there's not one clunker here, which I think is the appeal of most good live albums. I can't really rail too hard against this.

Thin Lizzy live up to the live album's name with some of the most ferocious, flat out rocking tunes that came out of 1970s Ireland. The live cut of Rosalie/Cowgirl's Song is stupendously great and the segue from Cowboy Song to The Boys Are Back in Town is godly. Good times abound here! Favorites: Southbound, Rosalie/Cowgirl's Song, Still in Love With You, Cowboy Song, The Boys Are Back in Town, Warrior, Sha-La-La.

I read an article talking about how classic rock radio does a disservice to artists by condensing varied careers into just a couple of signature songs that get played. Thin Lizzy was used as the prime example and after listening to this album, that article was spot on. Thin Lizzy is known for their hard rock two guitar harmony, but their music incorporates elements form soul, jazz, blues, and of course Irish traditional music. Phil Lynott is an incredible frontman and his lyrics explore the trials of the working class, something with which he was very familiar. To top it off, these guys are just phenomenal players. I’ve grown quite disillusioned by classic rock as I’ve gotten older, but Thin Lizzy shows that despite its tired superiority complex, classic rock is often seen as classic for a reason.

I wasn’t sure I would like this, since it’s listed as hard rock, but I actually like it pretty well.

3.0 - Admittedly, I struggled to keep an open mind with this one. I'm not a huge fan of that 70s cock rock sound and I generally don't prefer live albums. And why are Irish lads singing “Cowboy Song” and about motorcycle gangs? The album captures a band that's clearly honed their stage act and mastered their sound, but it’s a sound that I don’t love.

Aunque no soy muy fan de este estilo de rock, es un disco entretenido y dinámico. No me parece que tengan mucho carisma, como actuación en vivo tampoco tiene nada de especial y las canciones en muchas ocasiones son muy genéricas. Hay solos de guitarra molones. No lo he pasado mal escuchándolo, pero no me ha dicho gran cosa más allá.

Finally, some good guitar work in this 1001 album run. The first time I've ever sat down with Thin Lizzy. This is one of the best mixed live records I have ever heard. The bass is actually audible and the vocals don't drown everything out. Emerald is riff city. Rosalie is a Seger cover for a nice addition. Sounds like glory days rock and roll.

I don’t know if ‘Live And Dangerous’ is the best live album of all time, or whether it’s not a true live album at all because it was re-recorded in the studio and overdubbed with crowd noise to make it sound live. What I do know is that it rocks hard and is lots of fun, with many moments throughout to indulge in the hedonistic dream of being a rock god whilst perfecting one’s air guitar skills. ‘Live And Dangerous’ won’t change the world, but there’s worse ways to spend 75 minutes.

This is a surprisingly high quality recording. I wasn’t familiar with this bands work beforehand. I had heard the boys are back song of course but didn’t know it was them. I found this to be pretty fun and medium-high energy rock. Some of the songs feel a little generic at times but the instruments all come through balanced and just work. I don’t know if I’ll intentionally revisit, but I won’t turn it off if I hear it again

I don't know why a 'live' album by a band that some admit overdubbed 75% of the album in the studio is a 'must hear' - there are many better live albums that yield the same effect with better results (KISS ALIVE). On the whole, this is a good Thin Lizzy album and reflects why this forgotten band is cited as an influence.

There seems to be quite a controversy about how much of this album is actually from live recordings vs. in-studio overdubs. The producer, Tony Visconti, claimed 75% of the album was recorded in the studio and overdubbed while the band claims the opposite, that 75% was live. Who to believe? Regardless, I’m totally rocking out to the guitars riffs from a lot of these songs like Massacre, Suicide, The Rocker, and many others. I should pay more attention to Thin Lizzy based on this album. Does it matter how much of the album is live vs. in-studio overdub? I think so. I tend to believe the producer because I assume he know most about how the album was…you know…produced, but you never know. The answer is probably somewhere in between…50-50? Some of the appeal of a live album is the presumable authenticity of the album actually being recorded live. That it was one take, one crowd reaction, a one-off symbiotic experience. Does that even exist? I hadn’t considered how the live album sausage is made before. Aside from the in-studio overdubbing, Visconti also said Southbound was recorded from a sound check with the audience reaction was from another live song. What is this Frankenstein shit? It’s difficult to know. Will live albums in the future just be the studio recording with AI dubbed crowd interaction? And while we’re at it, will the studio recording just be AI produced on its own at some point? I don’t want to think about these things. I’d rather just enjoy the album that was laid down. When AI does take over the music industry, I know it won’t be the beginning of inauthenticity in its albums. Album judged based on the music alone, which was an enjoyable experience. However, it’s a less enthusiastic 3 knowing it’s a Frankenstein production.

Well, the 1001 educates again. Thin Lizzy is not what I thought they were. I knew the name, but would never have been able to identify one of their songs. I was expecting an 80s hair band. Instead, they somehow bridge both early metal and the 80s hair bands. Last week I posited that it seemed Bon Jovi and hair bands were a softening of heavy metal. And that still seems somewhat true, but the work of Thin Lizzy and other 70s hard rock and early metal are an important piece of the puzzle too. There is some pretty terrific guitar playing on the album. "Emerald" shreds, and at one point seemed to have guitar, bass, and drum solos all coexisting. Not sure why they are represented on the list by a live album though. If none of their studio albums are good enough, should they make the list for a concert? It's not even one concert - it's two stitched together! And a lot of it's not even live! They re-recorded huge chunks in the studio (75% according to their producer). This is not the first live album we've been dealt that did that. I'm not a fan of that whole concept. And then there was the shift from "Massacre" to "Still in Love With You" - who planned this set list? Were those even back-to-back at a single show? "Still in Love With You" felt like three different songs mashed together though, and the guitar solo in the middle part wouldn't have been too out of place after "Massacre," which was the most metal song in the set. These guys are from Ireland. Not that you can tell most of the time. And certainly not by "Cowboy Song." And their background is interesting, with the lead singer formerly from Skid Row (another band I had pegged in the wrong era/genre), and both Protestant and Catholic members. Favorite part of the research on this though was the discovery of the original version of "Whiskey in the Jar," of which I only knew the Metallica cover. I had no idea it was taken from a traditional Irish ballad! "Jailbreak," "Emerald," and "Massacre" are the most pleasant surprises. Overall uneven, but I enjoyed it more than I was expecting to.

I always wanted a pair of leather pants. Did they steal those from Jim Morrison? I would've thought I'd have a harder time getting into those pants than I would getting into this album. But alas, it'll be easier to squeeze my 240 pounds of self into those sausage tubes than listen to this again. Great guitar work, leather pants (and balls-out presentation) isn't enough for me to enjoy this album. It's a shame, Thin Lizzy is one of those bands that I think I should like but never quite do.

Urgh. I'm never sure how to rate live albums. There are a handful of top-tier Thin Lizzy bangers on here that deserve recognition. The transition from Cowboy Song to TBAIT is *chef's kiss*. Then there are half a dozen tracks that are kinda forgettable (though I prefer listening to this band's 'forgettable' over most 70s rock bands' 'forgettable'). I gave Live at Leeds 3.5 and I think I enjoyed this more. However, it's not all recorded at one show (and apparently there's some debate about how live it is in the first place), so that spoils the experience a bit for me. Another 3.5 it is then.

Thin Lizzy is one of those bands that I'm a little surprised that I don't think of when I'm adding music to my personal playlists. I didn't want to skip any of their songs as I lsitened to this album, and they play some solid rock music. I can list four tracks that I know Thin Lizzy plays, but only one of them was on this album ("The Boys Are Back in Town"). For a live album, the recording and performance from the band are easy to listen to. The band represented their talents well in a live setting, and the background noise from the audience didn't overpower the music being played. I enjoyed hearing a full (double) album from the band, but I don't think the album has sunk in enough to get Thin Lizzy on my personal playlists.

Oh boy, another live album. I would’ve loved an actual Thin Lizzy project. The irony here is that the songs I love (“Jailbreak” and “The Boys are Back in Town”) aren’t the ones I liked on this because I just prefer the studio version. A couple tracks I did enjoy, that I hadn’t heard before, but as a matter of principle I can’t give this a high rating. Live albums are a paradox, and, with few exceptions, I don’t think they should exist. Favorite tracks: Still in Love With You, Sha-La-La. Album art: Ooooh a picture of the band performing live! I wonder what it sounds like? 2.5/5

Das ist Hard Rock, und genau das will er sein. Jedes (von ihm selbst geschaffene) Klischee bedienen, wahnsinnig authentisch. Und dabei auch noch sehr gut eingefangener Live-Sound. Dem Proletarier in mir zucken die Luftgitarrenfinger, dem Snob gerinnt das spöttische Grinsen zum Gesichtskrampf. Emerald verursacht mir schon zu Beginn Unbehagen, Southbound direkt danach find ich nen ehrlichen Rocker. Hier gilt es auszubalancieren und dabei nicht mit den Eiern auf dem Drahtseil zu landen. Ok, es geht weiter mit Klischees: ehrlicher Rock, Schweiss, Pathos, auch mal ein Saxophon. Klaus-Lage-Feelings. Und schlimme Balladen dürfen natürlich nicht fehlen für die Jungs und Mädchen und ihre Mitesser. Den Eiern gehts noch gut, aber dicker werden sie nun gerade nicht. Apropos Dicke Eier: Warriors und das Drumsolo in Sha-La-La (!) find ich dann doch wieder ganz geil, auf ihre Art und mit meinem inneren Pickelteenie. Am Ende siegt aber doch der Snob, fürchte ich. 2,9 Punkte, die sich aber leider trotzdem nur nach 2 Sternen anfühlen.

Not sure what this being live does to make the album better. There's not an extra energy that the lead singer seems to bring; in fact he doesn't really sound excited at all.

Thin Lizzy is the epitome of a bog standard rock band. There isn't a whit of imagination or innovation in the song structures, melodies, bass lines, riffs, guitar solos, or for that matter anywhere throughout the running time of Live And Dangerous. Nada, nothing, zilch. That said, they are a rock solid touring band. It turns out that in a live setting, Thin Lizzy displays an energy and frontman Phil Linott a charisma which is nonexistent on their studio recordings. 67 minutes is a long time to listen to boring, by the numbers rock 'n roll, but thanks to Thin Lizzy's surefootedness as a touring band, it passes by relatively painlessly. Seriously though, this belongs on ANY kind of list?

Live and Dangerous by Thin Lizzy (1978) As live albums go, this one is very good, but it’s still a live album, which means, for hard rock, it’s not very good. Importuning chatter with the audience, lame verbal song introductions, even lamer band member introductions, off-tempo handclaps, applause interruptions in the quiet moments, lowbrow yelling, artificial endings, etc., etc.—all this takes away from the music. Technically, it is generally well recorded (for a live album) but there are many weak spots, including, for example, a far too subdued saxophone solo by John Earle on “Dancing In the Moonlight” and harmonica solo by Huey Lewis (yes!) on “Baby Drives Me Crazy”. What a waste of electrons. Thin Lizzy gives powerful performances, tight and experienced. God, these guys rock! Lead vocals by Phil Lynott are strong but lacking variety in his melodies and stylings. (Why do the lead solo parts all sound like “The Boys Are Back In Town”?) Bass (Lynott) and drums (Brian Downey) are outstanding. Guitar performances (Brian Robertson and Scott Gorham) are top-notch professional (especially in tandem!), even if they sometimes sound like they were recorded with microphones placed here in the listener’s living room, while the guys were playing in the high school gymnasium next door. The live version of “The Boys Are Back in Town” is far, far inferior to the studio version. Dud. Brian Downey’s superb drum solo on “Sha-La-La” (with fantastic slow phase shifting) is superbly screwed up by a hand-clapping audience that gets lost on the tempo change. Everybody laughs and has a good time, but I’m steaming. The point of this criticism is that nowadays, with streaming, the listener can put a collection of tracks together as a playlist of readily available studio versions. Why even listen to a tax-minimizing product (They admit it!) that amounts to a not-so-greatest hits compilation? The takeaway emotion here is regret either (1) that I wasn’t listening to the studio recordings, or (2) that I wasn’t at the concerts. Maybe there should be a list of “1001 Concerts You Should Have Attended But Didn’t—Now Go Die!” 2/5

Read the wiki - this album was made in lieu of a new studio album. Some of the album has been overdubbed with studio recording as well, which was a little controversial among critics, but overall it's still high on many lists of best live albums. I wanted to appreciate it more, but I honestly didn't love it. They sounded great, technically, but I didn't enjoy it on a personal level. I won't stop giving all different genres of metal a try, though.
