Editorial Reviews

In June 1974, Thin Lizzy were auditioning for a new guitarist and a try-out for Robertson was arranged. Aged 18, Robertson was taken on along with Scott Gorham on the other lead guitar. The two lead guitarists provided a critical part of Thin Lizzy's signature sound, referred to by critics as their 'twin guitar attack'. During his time in the band, over the course of 5 albums Robertson contributed a substantial share of songwriting, sometimes collaborating with frontman bassist/vocalist Phil Lynott who was the primary songwriter for the band. This Cd contains new material from Brian Robertson.

I wasn't expecting much when I saw this disc. I listened to the samples and bought it as a download because I thought they sounded pretty good. They do, it's actually a pretty solid album. I like it. I would recommend it if your into Classic Rock.

I've been anxiously awaiting this full length solo cd for some months, it was quite the buzz on music sites for over a year. I did my usual quick scan of each song on my way to track nine, and made one of those often-wrong first impressions. I finally listened through several times and found the songs begin to grow on you with patient attention, several are very good, most are memorable for multiple reasons, and all eventually yield great guitar work, sometimes several minutes in. Sound quality is good and punchy, like rock recordings should be, and the players are all top-notch. Track nine, Bluesboy, the forth version available, smolders and smokes along, the best yet! Highly recommended!

Brian Robertson's long awaited new album `Diamond and Dirt' was worth the wait. It's a corker! Welcome back Brian we all need you great melodic sense and stunning, classy guitar work. This album is a must buy for all fans of Robbo/ Lizzy/ Wild Horses/ Motorhead (Another Perfect Day vintage). Top-notch production

Catchy melodic rockers everywhere, soulful ballsy vocals, Robbos punchy stinging lead solos - Robbos in peak form - A must buy - go on you now you want it! Keep going Brian.

Format: Audio CD
"Diamonds and dirt" is the debut solo album by highly acclaimed British guitarist Brian Robertson best known as a member of "Thin Lizzy", "Motorhead" and "Wild Horses". While "Thin Lizzy" fans would have been anticipating a new album from either John Sykes or the late Gary Moore, Robertson steps forward with this bluesy/melodic offering. "Diamonds and dirt" is 50% new material and 50% reworking of "Thin Lizzy" and Frankie Miller songs. So one could easily jump to the conclusion that this solo album is in the vein of classic "Thin Lizzy"; yet there is much more to be said of the artistic direction of "Diamonds and Dirt":

On one hand you have Brian Robertson an incredibly proficient subtle-blues player who always insisted on the melodic essence of a song while on the other you have a full band featuring elite members of the Swedish AOR/melodic hard rock scene: Drummer Ian Haugland ("Europe"), bassist Nalley Pahlsson ("Treat"), lead singer Leif Sundin ("MSG") and backing female singer Liny Wood. So clearly you can expect blues influences to be mixed with AOR/melodic rock forms referencing directly the background of the Swedish band. This approach is rather similar to the musical style of "Whitesnake" excluding however performance extravagance and flamboyancy. "Diamonds and Dirt" is a mature-sounding blues/melodic rock record that demonstrates perfectly the class of the musicians involved.

The recording process took place at Chris Laney's 'Polar Studios' in Sweden, with Laney ("Crashdiet", "Crazy Lixx") undertaking producer duties, while album photos indicate that all members were present during the recordings, making "Diamonds and Dirt" a collective studio effort rather than a file-trading album.

There were two reasons that made me want to play guitar in a band when I was growing up, one was Mick Ronson & the other was Brian Robertson. Sure there were plenty of other guitarists about but those two had the full package, the low slung Les Paul, the look. the swagger - the whole deal. The reason that i mention this is that after the first couple of play throughs of Diamonds & Dirt, I felt the same way I did after listening to Mick Ronsons solo albums postumously released in the late 90's, 'Just Like This' and 'Showtime'. What I think left me a little disapponted in both cases was the strength of the songs. Killer guitar solos and arrangements abound but they need to be build on a good tune and some of the tracks just slump a little for me.
Diamonds & Dirt does have no shortage of high spots and curiosity items though, great to hear the old Lizzy soundcheck favourite Blues Boy being dusted off and Running Back sounds like the finest work of the Quireboys.If you love Robbos guitar work then this album is worth checking out cos there ain't a bad solo on it. I still say there is no one can make a Les Paul sing like Robbo. Right, off to dig the guitar out I think........

Overall, quite a good album! I'd like to see him back with Thin Lizzy. Brian has always been a very tasteful guitar player.

ROBBO is a legend for a reason!! Not the greatest songs, but still solid rockers! Robbo can still destroy most guitarists!
