and most were horrible but the last one was pretty good. I like this cause
now it has all the bonus stuff together so I will get it for my collection.
The show is great from Dublin TV show LIVE! This is Thin Lizzy Fighting
Tour before Jailbreak which was their biggest selling album! It shows some
kinks in their show but that's what LIVE is no fake vocals lip synching here!
The power of the band ready to burst out as you can hear on the rocking numbers!
You get The Rocker!!! which is not included on live and dangerous dvd! Brian
Downey is the most underrated drummer in rock and his solo is a monster! You
get early Lizzy classics also! The bonus stuff is worth the price also if
you never saw it! I love the documentary stuff it's awesome! Thin Lizzy a
true rock legend that doesn't get the attention and credit in the US!
THEN, "The Sun Goes Down: Farewell Irish Tour" Concert/documentary. A "Fly On The Wall" concert and documentary with clips I have seen but never the original source!
Then, there is bonus material! 2 live TV performances of "Are You Ready" and "Whiskey In The Jar". Plus finally, for the first time anywhere, the actual prom video for "Old Town" from "The Philip Lynott Album. Looking like it is from the master reel and is full stereo! One I have been looking for for decades!
Don't think twice, order it whhile you still can! This is no bootleg, it is put out by "Universal". Best DVD I have of Phil and the boys!
By comparison, this is a cleaner picture and a much better performance than the "Rockpalast" DVD. The negative reviews/critiques of "National Stadium" seem a bit harsh to me, considering the source material. Sure, it isn't "The Song Remains The Same" but I guess they just didn't have the resources of Led Zepplin at the time, ya know? Yeah, it's unfortunate, but I'd rather have this, than nothing. Plus, I would have been 5 years old and I don't live anywhere near Ireland, so I doubt I would have been able to see this or any other performance from that era.
I only have two negative critisims here and that is: 1) I wish there had been two full sets here, instead of one. (But the one is really good and has several songs not available in any other collection.) 2) Sound Quality: The bass guitar is not loud or defined enough and the treble tones (guitars) are pretty darn edgy. I can only hope that the folks who mixed/mastered this, did the best they could with what they had. Still, it is worth it for the performance and the 'time capsule' factor.
On a positive note, Phil's singing never sounded better. In fact, I've never heard the man sing an 'off-note' in any live performance. Beyond that, there are some nice, previously unreleased extras def worth having, as listed in the description.
