After the somewhat disappointing deluxe releases of Jailbreak, Johnny the Fox, and Live and Dangerous, I approached this with a bit of hesitation, but I just couldn't resist. It is Thin Lizzy after all. In case you're wondering, all of those deluxe editions did not feature the newly remastered material, but the 1996 remaster. Blame Scott Gorham on that one. Disc 1 features the remastered original Black Rose LP, and it sounds fantastic. Very nice and dynamic, and you can hear a bit more of subtleties that were more or less buried in the original mix. Fine remaster. Disc 2 has an abundance of great material, including an unreleased track entitled Rock Your Love, which has been out on the net for quite some time, but this one is vastly superior as it's cleaned up significantly, sessions from 1978 in Nassau including an unreleased track entitled Cold Black Night plus more, and a different version of Toughest Street In Town.

I almost gave this album 4 stars, but after I wrote my review I realized that it is clearly a 5* album (although Thin Lizzy produced at least 4 other 5* albums that are better than this one). Although this album strikes me as a little more patchy/inconsistent/varied than the golden era albums with Brian Robertson, it is still a fantastic album.

I actually like the soft hit single Sarah too (Phil was reluctant to play this live apparently) - Phil was good at the sensitive stuff as well as the hard rockers. The song "Do Anything you want to do" was a reasonable hit, but strikes me as indictive of the future (more abrasive, less melodic) direction of Lizzy, which I found less inspiring. S&M is over campy and...
This album has everything a music lover needs and wants in a rock album!Heavy songs,funky songs,slow songs, and complicated riffs in songs!Phil can just get all of his ideas out better when someone is pushing him or is just as talented as a writer and musician as he was!Gary Moore was that man on this album, what a great combo just wish Phil could of got him to join and stay with him all through his career and maybe he would still be gracing us with his music today!If you like music(classic rock)this album gives you everything and more!I love this album and recomend it to every music fan!
