THIN LIZZY’S STILL DANGEROUS DUE ON MARCH 2ND:
December 17, 2008
‘STILL DANGEROUS’ LIVE AT THE TOWER THEATRE, PHILADELHIA, 1977 – Release date: 2nd March 2009
PHIL LYNOTT – BRIAN DOWNEY – SCOTT GORHAM – BRIAN ROBERTSON
Thin Lizzy’s seminal double live album “Live & dangerous” is consistently featured in polls as one of the greatest live albums of all time. Yet, it is not really a live record at all featuring overdubs and post production across the album. March 2nd 2009 see’s the release of the “Still Dangerous”, the real “Live & Dangerous”!
“Still Dangerous” is the raw, unadulterated, untouched sound of Thin Lizzy at the absolute height of their powers. Recorded on the band’s sell out 1977 “Bad Reputation” tour, “Still Dangerous” captures the classic quartet of Lynott, Downey, Gorham and Robertson on fire at the celebrated Tower Theatre in Philadelphia.
The album features tracks that never made the “Live & Dangerous” release and all cuts are previously unreleased. The album was mixed by the legendary Glyn Johns (The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin), with contributions from Scott Gorham and Brian Downey.
“Still Dangerous” is the definitive live statement from one of rock’s most revered and enduring groups. The recordings that make up “Still Dangerous” were discovered by accident in an overlooked band lockup – a happy accident for Thin Lizzy fans and music fans in general as it is set to become an essential addition to the legacy of one of rocks greatest ever acts. The album is fully endorsed by Phil Lynott’s estate and the band. “Still Dangerous” is the first release on the “Thin Lizzy Productions” label (distributed by Proper Music Distribution).
