THIN LIZZY – Classic Double LP ‘LIVE AND DANGEROUS’ Released This Day In 1978

Back In Time…

2 June 2021

Band: THIN LIZZY
Who: Legendary Irish rockers led
by the late great Phil Lynott.
20 August 1949 – 4 January 1986

Album: LIVE AND DANGEROUS
Released: 2 June 1978 – 43 years ago today

All Music: “Live and Dangerous’ was a glorious way to celebrate Thin Lizzy’s
glory days and one of the best double live LPs of the 70s. Of course, this, like
a lot of double-lives of that decade isn’t strictly live. It was overdubbed and
colored in the studio (producer: Tony Visconti). But even if there was some
tweaking in the studio, Live and Dangerous feels live, containing more energy
and power than the original LPs, which were already dynamic in their own right.
It’s this energy, combined with the expert song selection, that makes ‘Live and
Dangerous’ a true live classic.”
Score: 4.5/5.

Back in time…

13 April 2021

Artist: DAVID BOWIE

Album: ALADDIN SANE – 6th LP
Released: 13 April 1973 – 48 years ago today

Notes: Recorded with his band The Spiders from Mars.
Partly thanks to the mega-hit ‘The Jean the Genie’ the album
topped the UK charts.

Rolling Stone wrote: “Aladdin is grander, more produced:
David is more than ever more mastermind than participant.
Aladdin’s very eclecticism makes it less exposed, conceptually,
than Ziggy.”

Artist: BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS
Album: CATCH A FIRE (means: ‘Burn In Hell’) – 5th LP
Released: 13th April 1973 – 48 years ago today

Notes: 2 songs written by Peter Tosh, 7 by Marley.
The cover sleeve depicted a Zippo lighter. At first
the LP wasn’t a great success at all on release. But
after The Wailers toured the US and the UK in
support of the record sales exploded.

BBC Music said: “Reggae, up until this point, was a niche genre,
bought in the UK by ex-pat West Indians. It was even less widespread
in the States. Catch A Fire changed all that. Without it Bob Marley would
never have become a figurehead and no one outside of the Caribbean
would have heard of Bunny Wailer or Peter Tosh either. For this alone
Chris Blackwell should be canonised.”
