Thin Lizzy S/T  (Light in the Attic Records)

Thin Lizzy


 (Light in the Attic Records)

Heralded as one of the best debut albums, Thin Lizzy is getting a special vinyl-only reissue by the fine folks at Light in the Attic Records. Featuring 180-gram vinyl and whole slew of sleeve candy, including a poster and expanded liner notes, the album really underscores who Thin Lizzy was … a group of street toughs that found their way into music.

Having formed in 1970, the band hit it hard and within a year had landed a deal with Decca Records and released this gem. It was not considered a success, selling poorly and often overlooked by the Jailbreak and post-Jailbreak era fans. You will not find the dual guitar attack here. You will find an eclectic mix of rock, Celtic, folk and other genres that defined the power trio all put down on tape. It’s a hungry album, almost earnest in its approach as if the band never thought they’d get a chance to record another, and that’s what is engaging about it.
