Descripción del producto
Still Dangerous is the raw, unadulterated, untouched sound of Thin Lizzy at the absolute height of their powers on their sell out 1977 Bad Reputation tour. Thin Lizzys seminal double live album Live & dangerous is consistently featured in polls as one of the greatest live albums of all time. Yet, it is not really a live record at all, featuring overdubs and post production across the album. Still Dangerous captures the classic quartet of Lynott, Downey, Gorham and Robertson on fire at the celebrated Tower Theatre in Philadelphia. The album features tracks that never made the Live & Dangerous release and all cuts are previously unreleased. The album was mixed by the legendary Glyn Johns (The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin), with contributions from Scott Gorham and Brian Downey. Still Dangerous is the definitive live statement from one of rocks most revered and enduring groups and is set to become an essential addition to the legacy of one of rocks greatest ever acts. Tracks: Soldier of Fortune / Jailbreak / Cowboy Song / Boys Are Back In Town / Dancing In The Moonlight / Massacre / Opium Trail / Dont Believe A Word / Baby Drives Me Crazy / Me And The Boys

ABOUT.COM CLASSIC ROCK:
I'm curious as to why there are only 10 tracks. Having seen Lizzy so many times, the sets were typically not that short.
I'll tell you what happened there. When we found these tapes, I knew that a load of these multi-tracks were in danger of being destroyed. That's kind of why we went in and had to go through the baking -- getting these tapes baked so they could be put down to a digital format and the idea was to get maybe 15 songs on the actual CD itself, but two of the reels were destroyed ... it actually sounded like someone had put their finger on top of the spool or they were leaning against the machine or something, because it kept going with that "wrrrooow, wrrrooow" kind of a thing, and I kind of panicked because we were halfway through this mixing process and we slammed on those tapes and that came up and I thought, "This can't be happening!" There is nothing you can do at that stage, so what we got out of it were four new tracks so, you know, four is better than none!
Below is a breakdown of the album track by track:
1. Soldier Of Fortune 21/10/77
2. Jailbreak 21/10/77
3. Cowboy Song 20/10/77 KBFH show. Same take as Live and Dangerous.
4. Boys Are Back In Town 20/10/77 KBFH show. Same take as Live and Dangerous
5. Dancing In The Moonlight 20/10/77 KBFH show. Sax solo cut at start and fix to start of guitar solo.
6. Massacre 20/10/77 KBFH show. Same take as Live and Dangerous.
7. Opium Trail 20/10/77 KBFH show. Same take as Killers Live EP.
8. Don't Believe A Word 21/10/77
9. Baby Drives Me Crazy 21/10/77
10. Me And The Boys 21/10/77
Bonus tracks only available as download outside of Japan:
11. Bad Reputation 20/10/77 KBFH show. Same take as featured on the Killers Live EP. [Edited I might add. The drum solo on the soundboard is over 2 minutes, the one featured on the download and Japanese version is only about 1. So yea it's cut in half pretty much. The full version is included on the Live and Dangerous Deluxe Edition]
12. Emerald 21/10/77 Same take as Live and Dangerous.
The Thin had used the late-'70s three-member incarnation of Savoy Brown as an opener, a band showing their wear and tear by this period-- sadly a fate soon to be realized by the Thin as well. But these ten songs show Phil and the best of his boys at their very, very best.
In concert they often ran songs right together-- this recording is actually of five 'couplets' making the individual CD tracks a little irrelevant to separate on an iPod shuffle. The opener, the new 'Soldier of Fortune', begins with a gong in G, an idea taken from 'Tie Your Mother Down' by Queen for whom Thin had opened the season before (and had been pictured with on the cover of 'Live And Dangerous'). As 'Soldier' ends on E-minor-- the opening chord of 'Jailbreak'-- they go straight into it with no interruption. The audience's increase in volume shows they all immediately know this one (and that may even be MY south-Jersey 'piney yell' at the moment of the segue!).
The pairing of 'Dancin' In The Moonlight' and 'Massacre' seems odd thematically, but, again, the keys are matched and musically it seems seamless. Then comes their trademark 'Cowboy Song' going into 'Boys Are Back', which the audience expected. As a cover band in Surf City we used to play each of these, not both together, and had learned 'Boys Are Back' in G, so we could not figure out how Thin would have put them together. The secret lies in Thin's being (then) an all-guitars band-- they had no need to tune anything to A-440 and tended to tune to each other and not care about anything else. Thus on the 'Jailbreak' LP, from which we learned it, 'Boys' appears to be in a slightly-too-high key of G and 'Cowboy' a more passable A. The fact is, they're both played in A.
The 'Still Dangerous' CD was intelligently produced by Thin guitarist Scott Gorham with bass, drums, and vocals in the center, Robertson's guitar on the right and Gorham's guitar on the left, so it's a joy to hear the sounds of the large and small Les Paul pickups both separately and together. What's surprising to be is how much the 20-year-old Robertson showed off-- much of the fills and trills are his, and I had always thought it was Gorham doing the overplaying!
The close of 'Still Dangerous' is the crowd favorite 'Baby Drives Me Crazy', during which Phil always introduces the band, and then the musically dull 'Me And The Boys' which is used mainly as a curtain closer. These two are the weakest songs on the collection but definitely show what Thin live was made of.
If you have to have only ONE Thin Lizzy album, THIS is the one with their best done best. Buy it, savour it, know it for what it is: a definitive recording of one of the best-- though most underrated-- rock bands in history. Their like shall not be seen (nor heard) again.
