Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1977 album from the Irish rockers. Bad Reputation was the eighth studio album Phil Lynott and Co. It featured "Dancing in the Moonlight (It's Caught Me in Its Spotlight)" which was a UK hit, reaching #14 in the singles chart in September 1977. Teaming up with the legendary producer Tony Visconti, Thin Lizzy managed to pull off a nifty trick of sounding leaner and tougher than they did on previous releases, creating an album that rivals Jailbreak as their best studio album. This expanded single disc has been remastered and now comes with four previously unreleased bonus tracks taken from a session recorded for the BBC. Universal.

Don't know what you got until it's taken from you.

What a band and what an album.

Again, you CAN'T go wrong purchasing this album.

From strength to strength.

1. Soldier Of Fortune- Typical loose and powerful Thin Lizzy. Love those guitars!

2. Bad Reputation - Listening to Scott Gorham play on Bad Reputation seals the deal.

3. Opium Trail - One of the few leads Brian Robertson plays. Solid.

4. South Bound - Incredible. One song I NEVER get tired of playing at loud levels

5. Dancing In The Moonlight - Surprisingly my least favorite track, and it's still great!

6. Killer Without A Cause - Powerful and pounding. Didn't Iron Maiden lift the riff on this one? Well, kinda : )

7. Downtown Sundown- Great tune, Slowing down the pace. Awesome bass work throughout.

8. That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart - A slight hiccup. Not bad but not great either.

9. Dear Lord- Phil exorcising his demons. Back to form again!

A solid chuck of 70's hard rock music.

Almost 30 yrs later this album shows the power and intensity these guys had.

Go get all of Thin Lizzy';s stuff and see what quality is all about.

Get hooked now!It's not too late!

Phil Lynott RIP. I wish we still had you with us. Your music has meant so much to so many people.

I can't think of another band that influenced me in my youth the way these guys did. I consider them the best rock band of all. I know Phil wrote the occasionally awful line, and at times the songs were just downright peculiar ("S & M" off "Black Rose" comes to mind), but the unique sound and look of the band set them apart, and gave them a unique, singular voice.
Here is Thin Lizzy again offering very diverse material, songs that kick you in your butt ("Bad Reputation", "Opium Trail", "Soldier of Fortune" and "Killer Without A Cause"), what could be considered religious songs ("Downtown Sundown" and "Dear Lord", songs I find incredibly heartfelt, beautiful, and at times, awkward. God bless you, Phil), and pop songs with great guitar licks ("Southbound", "That Women's Gonna Break Your Heart" and "Dancing in The Moonlight", my least favorite track on the album). Not what you would expect from what everyone was saying was a "hard rock" band.
When I consider that Thin Lizzy released the following 4 STUDIO albums consecutively...."Jailbreak" (1976), "Johnny the Fox" (1976), "Bad Reputation" (1977) and "Black Rose" (1979), and when I listen to them now, scratches and all, ....I think that Thin Lizzy is still my favorite rock band, and I wish to god I could play guitar like Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson, and be as cool as Phil Lynott. These 4 albums are rock nirvana to me.

If push came to shove, I consider "Bad Reputation" their best album. It is more Scott Gorham than Brian Robertson, and for that,I give it up to Scott Gorham. But I wish the two would have stayed together, especially when you hear them together on "That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart".

Just okay! I think not, go listen to your Springsteen albums will you. This is perhaps the best package Thin Lizzy ever released! Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson cook on guitars to start and Phil Lynott has penned some of his most memorable tunes. The playing on this is as masterful as any Thin Lizzy album, but here, as with JAILBREAK, every song clicks. There is magic everywhere. C'mon even Huey Lewis on harmonica, at the time Clover had been touring some with Thin Lizzy.
OK! To pick a favorite song I would have to go with "That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart", which is a wonderful ballad. There's the almost bluesy "Dancing in the Moonlight" and "Southbound". Then there are great rockers like "Soldier of Fortune", "Bad Reputation", and "Killer Without a Cause". Then there is "Dear Lord", which strangely enough is stupendous even though it is full of doubt and concern. A listen to this disc should provide almost everyone with a song they could like, or, maybe like me you'd hock all your Springsteen to have something this good in your collection!

**** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 'Expanded Version' ****

After the bad taste the last 3 Lizzy Deluxe Editions seem to leave in many fans mouths (advertised as new remasters, Universal simply used the 1996 versions and didn't change the booklets or adverts) - I'm glad to say this reissue of Lizzy's much-loved 8th album "Bad Reputation" is a real improvement on the former 1996 outing - and packs some nice surprises in the bonus department too.

Tracks 1 to 9 are the original LP "Bad Reputation" released 2 September 1977 on Vertigo Records 9102 016 in the UK and on Mercury SRM1-1186 in the USA. It peaked at Number 4 in the UK album charts and at 49 in the US. This June 2011 'Expanded Edition' CD on Universal/Mercury 2772693 adds on 6 bonus tracks and breaks down as follows (57:24 minutes):

Tracks 10 to 15 are "Killer Without A Cause", "Bad Reputation", "That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart", "Dancing In Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight)" and "Downtown Sundown" - all are Previously Unreleased - a BBC Session Recorded 1 August 1977 (no other details provided).

Track 16 is "Me And The Boys (Soundcheck)" - this version is Previously Unreleased - no details are provided as to where or when this live recording was made...

The expanded 16-page booklet has new liner notes (doesn't say who wrote them) and features the album's original inner sleeve along with some new live photos of the band in both colour and black and white. It's nice, but oddly doesn't reference the bonus tracks at all except to list their titles (I mean 'Soundcheck' - where, when?)

The remaster was carried out by ANDY PEARCE and MATT WORTHAM at Wired Masters in the UK in 2010 - and the sound is much improved.
