Editorial Reviews

Thin Lizzy, led by the inimitable Phil Lynott, were one of the greatest rock bands ever to come out of Ireland. This concert from Loreley, Germany in 1981 was filmed for the German TV series Rockpalast. The set draws tracks from across Thin Lizzy's career and alongside the hits including "Hollywood", from the as then not yet released "Renegade", "Desaster", a track unique to this release, and "Memory Pain" which never made it onto any of their albums. Always a great live band, this DVD captures Thin Lizzy at their very best.

Line-Up: Phil Lynott - lead vocals, bass; Scott Gorham - guitar, backing vocals; Brian Downey - drums; Snowy White - guitar; Darren Wharton - keyboards.

TRACK LISTING:
1) Are You Ready?
2) Genocide
3) Waiting For An Alibi

5.0 out of 5 stars Thin Lizzy rocking hard in Deutschland . . . December 20, 2009
As one of the early proponents of hard rock in the 70's, Thin Lizzy helped blaze the trail for the explosion of heavy metal in the 80's. Are You Ready? is a 19 song, 110 minute long performance, shot in Lorelei, Germany, for the German music program Rockpalast, in 1981. The band lineup is the same one that recorded Chinatown (1980). Phil Lynott on bass and vocals, Scott Gorham on guitar, Brian Downey on drums, and the band's newest members guitarist Snowy White, and Darren Wharton on keyboards.

The concert looks quite good for a performance this age, although the resolution is not the best. The editing is nicely done, and features a variety of camera angles with unobstructed views. When the stage is lighted red almost all detail is lost, and the image occasionally has some distorting horizontal lines, but otherwise the video is pretty watchable. Dolby digital stereo, Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS surround sound, are the available options. The sound quality is mostly good, except for some issues with the guitars. Lynott's vocals and bass, and Downey's drums, both sound great. However at various times the guitar of either Gorham or White, seems muffled or muted. This distraction is mostly tolerable, as Lizzy's twin guitar attack kind of conceals the issue, until someone is playing a solo.

The DVD apparently contains the complete performance, which features a nice mix of the band's catalog. Included is the brand new song Hollywood (Down On Your Luck), plus Chinatown, Sugar Blues, and Genocide from the Chinatown album. Songs from Fighting (1975) include Suicide, and Rosalie, and with Memory Pain, the band even delves into the blues. Lizzy draws most heavily from their classic albums Jailbreak, and Black Rose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Philo and the Renegades November 17, 2009
I've only owned this DVD for a little over a week and I thought it was quite nice to have some footage of Lizzy with Snowy White onstage with the lads. The sound quality on it is good with some discrepancies in regards to Scott's and Snowy's guitars in the mix. Nevertheless, it is the complete show and the only song I wish they hadn't performed is the lacklustre "Trouble Boys" which was, at the time, their latest single. Why on earth Phil chose to release this song(written by Billy Bremmer(Rockpile) is beyond me. But, all in all, this is a solid show and it explains the ups and downs of Snowy's role within the group. On songs like "Emerald", "Cowboy Song", and "Suicide" it really shows that Snowy's style compared to those who preceded him(Robbo and Gary Moore)lacks the bite and vigorous venom that is required with those songs. Don't get me wrong, Snowy's a talented player, for sure, but, overall, one can see why John Sykes was later recruited to allow Lizzy to go out with a bang in their final throes as a group. If you're a die-hard Lizzy fan, you'll want this alongside the Live and Dangerous DVD set and the Greatest Hits DVD. I hope that there will be more footage released later on, especially with some of Phil's later projects(Grand Slam)...Great set this one....

This concert was filmed in Loreley, Germany during 1981, for the German TV show Rockpalast (Rock Palace). It includes songs, that span Thin Lizzy's career. This is simply Thin Lizzy at their best. This was one of the best hard rocking bands, to come out of Ireland. Phil Lynott was a unique frontman. He cannot be imitated. He & the band ROCKS, in this concert!!! The concert has an approximate running time of 112 minutes.

The line-up is as follows:

The Late/Great, Phil Lynott - Bass, Lead Vocals
Brian Downey - Drums
Scott Gorham - Guitar
Snowy White - Guitar
Darren Wharton - Keyboards

The songs include:
1.Are You Ready?
2.Genocide
3.Waiting for an Alibi
4.Jailbreak
5.Trouble Boys
6.Don't Believe a Word
7.Memory Pain
8.Got to Give it Up
9.Chinatown
10.Hollywood
11.Cowboy Song
12.The Boy's Are Back In Town (Totally Awesome!!!!)
13.Suicide
14.Black Rose
15.Sugar Blues
16.Baby Drives me Crazy
17.Rosalie
18.Desaster
19.Emerald

If you like a good, hard-rocking concert, then you'll really enjoy this concert dvd!!!! I know I do!!! Thanks!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Any Thin Lizzy concert is worth watching May 10, 2010
Being one of the greatest live acts of the 70s/80s (and many, including myself, would argue all time), you can't go wrong with live Thin Lizzy. Okay, there are a few exceptions but overall you can count on a product of high quality and showmanship. I didn't really care for this concert upon initial viewing - Phil seemed too lethargic (although he does liven up about halfway in the set but we don't need to get into why...) and some of the songs didn't have the punch that they did in earlier recordings ("Emerald" on this recording is very underwhelming). But I gave it another chance and was very glad I did. The material from the latter part of their career always did sound better live then in studio - "Genocide" and "Hollywood" are evidence of this. And the keyboards would also become much more cloying and louder with the Thunder & Lightning tour. This isn't Phil & Co. at their finest hour but they are still very good here. "Black Rose" is always a pleasure, even if they didn't play the whole song - I don't think anyone but Gary Moore is capable of doing that though. It's also fun watching Phil's interaction with the crowd during "Baby Drives Me Crazy" - in which the crowd surprisingly hangs with his vocal intonations.
