5.0 out of 5 stars Are You Ready To Hit The Floor? November 10, 2007
Live and Dangerous arrived at my home via Air Mail today from Amazon UK, and I couldn't wait to get it into my DVD player. I was anxious about whether it was a Regionalized DVD (only Region 0 and Region 1 play in US DVD players), especially since the product description on the Amazon UK site suggested that it was Region 2...but it's not Region 2; it's Region 0 (worldwide).

This performance of the 1977 Live and Dangerous tour was captured at London's Rainbow Theatre. And this show should be held up not only as an example of the way a rock group should perform live, but also as an example for DVD music producers on how to deliver an excellent product.

The Live and Dangerous concert is all show. No indulgence by some videographer that thinks a viewer wants to see effects like cut to black and white, psyschedelic swirling pictures or other video effects. This was a very pleasant surprise considering that kind of video-malarkey was quite popular in the 70s.

The full screen picture has been completely restored and looks terrific. Most importantly, the video doesn't jump around every 4 seconds, so you really get to see the performance in a way that feels like you're back in '77 with a front row seat to the concert.

If you've got a surround system, you're in for a pounding Hard Rock experience. The sound has an amazing 5.1 DTS remix. If you've got an old DVD player or old surround system that doesn't decode DTS you're out of luck...there's no Dolby 5.1...Dolby Stereo is the only other choice besides DTS.

The Live and Dangerous line-up of Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson and Brian Downey define Thin Lizzy. And all of the guys are on for the Live and Dangerous show at The Rainbow. Lynott's high energy stage persona is incomparable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Live Album! May 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Not enough good things can be said about Thin Lizzy's LIVE AND DANGEROUS. Almost every song on the album blows away the studio version. The best thing about LIVE AND DANGEROUS is that the production is perfect. Polished enough in the studio during mixing that the sound quality is excellent, but still raw enough to capture the power and energy of Thin Lizzy live. Truly live, with virtually no studio overdubs. (UPDATE - As it turns out, that wasn't true. Most of the guitars and vocals were overdubbed in the studio. What's odd is that I've heard true live recordings from that era and they sound almost exactly like this album. That's why I initially thought that there weren't many overdubs in the studio. Apparantly, they just wanted to polish up the live recordings and went overboard.) As far as the songs go, there are so many great tracks on L.A.D. that it is almost impossible to single out the highlights - almost every track could be considered a highlight! The best way to put it is this; LIVE AND DANGEROUS is a Hard Rock masterpiece. Rock And Roll was (and never will be) better than this. Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson, and Brian Downey set the standard for live Rock albums that still has not been surpassed. If you like Hard Rock (like Led Zeppelin, UFO, KISS, and AC/DC) you MUST buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This One December 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most all of the best 70s albums were live. And this one, my friends, is the best of all the 70s live albums. I really enjoyed Thin Lizzy's studio albums...but I was totally blown away when I heard LIVE AND DANGEROUS.
That voice. Those guitars. Perfection. There are many excellent songs here, some that really rock like Jailbreak, Rosalie, Cowboy Song and The Rocker. Some are so delicate and moving that they will rip your heart out, like Dancing In The Moonlight and Still In Love With You.
Take a long drive one night. Put this in your CD player. Understand life. It's a simple as that.
Thanks, Thin Lizzy. You have brightened many a day for me since discovering this album in 1979. I plan on having a copy of this in my collection until the day I die.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thin Lizzy Lives - Live and Dangerous January 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Thin Lizzy released this album on the back of a string of magical releases from the band, and as such featured their most famous lineup. It featured Brian Downey on drums, Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson on guitars, and of course the unmistakable Phil Lynott on bass and handling the vocals. It would be the last album to feature this particular lineup. The remaining Thin Lizzy albums would strive to capture the sound solidly established to this point. The album launches into Jailbreak and Emerald, both from their chartbreaking "jailbreak" album. Also featured are live classics like Massacre, The Boys are Back in Town, Warrior, Cowboy Song, and Don't believe a Word, all captured with the emmense energy that went into their live performances. Of particular note is a slower tune entitled "Still in Love With You". It was one of the bonified underground classics that I believe made the music of Thin Lizzy what it was. Although the band is most noted for their hard rocking tunes, it is through songs like this one that they displayed the diversity that made them a great band. I have seen the band live and can testify to the fact that this album captures the spirit of their live performances. This album can be complimented by a video release entitled "Thin Lizzy - Live and Dangerous at the Rainbow". Both are must for the Thin Lizzy fan.

The problem is that the DVD defaults to the DTS Digital 5.1 track. Unless you're set up for this, you won't hear a thing. There is an easy solution, however, so don't fret. Simply go to the Audio Options (or "Set Up", I'm not sure what it's called offhand) on the main menu. This will... Read More

So where is it?
Let's hope it looks better than the "Thin Lizzy Greatest Hits" DVD does. I have that DVD and the picture quality is pretty bad in some of the videos. For some strange reason, they transferred the "Boys are Back in Town" video (shot on videotape and seen as such in the 1991 VHS... Read More
