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.

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.

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....

How can this be less than 5 stars? Sure Snowy White is taking the place of iconic Brian Robertson (although Snowy is better its still not the original magical lineup) but goodness...this is clearly the closest to a full set we have available. The other great Thin Lizzy DVD set Live & Dangerous is a great purchase.... but what we have on that is two rather truncated sets ...one of about an hour with the original lineup and another short set with John Sykes in the guitar spotlight ...so this is the only true representation of a full Lizzy show...and its a very very good one!

I just can't see rating this any less than five stars particularly given the cheap price. Sure a perfectionist could find flaws at time with production or playing but its really pretty darned good. I've watched this DVD at least 20 times...so that says something ...I've got a huge collection but this one just calls to me...
