Overview

Released in 1978, just as the hot streak starting with 1975's Fighting and running through 1977's Bad Reputation came to an end, 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 -- Kiss' Alive! immediately springs to mind -- isn't strictly live; it was overdubbed and colored in the studio (the very presence of studio whiz Tony Visconti as producer should have been an indication that some corrective steering may have been afoot). 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.

...possibly the best album ever. The best versions of the best songs played by the best Lizzy line up. Played with energy and enthusiasm. This is what Rock is all about.

I would have loved to been anywhere in the crowd that night at any of these recorded shows! I owned this lp for 4 days befor I got on to side 2. The entire set is a gem! I can say nothing bad about it. So why only 4 stars? I am a complete sell-out to Thin Lizzy's first three lp's when they were a trio. And I'm a poor sport because they included minimal reference from those lp's. They aren't bad lp's. The Liz' has about a b'jillion songs to pick from and I'm just a pouty-puss. "Live & Dangerous" is a showcase that sets the standard for two guitar rock & roll! Hey, honesty is my only excuse...

An amazing live album period! All songs sound better than the studio versions! Highlights include the ballad "Still In Love With You", the new songs "Are You Ready" and "Baby Drives Me Crazy", "Suicide" and "Don't Belive A Word". The guitars from Gorham and Robertson sound fantastic throughout!
