Product Description

Product Description

Full title, 'Vagabonds Kings Warriors Angels'. The definitive box-set, spanning their entire career from the early years on Decca, the Vertigo years & frontman Lynott's solo recordings. 73 tracks including many rarities. Housed in a digi-book with 48 pages of color photos & notes. 2001.

Four CDs, 73 tracks, one rock & roll legend: Thin Lizzy's Vagabonds, Kings, Warriors and Angels contains all you need to know about the greatest bar room rock & roll band ever to inspire heavy drinking and boisterous behaviour. You can actually hear the early trio of Phil Lynott, Eric Bell and Brian Downey learn their instruments on CD1, with fluffed changes and loose timekeeping adding up to a suitably rough & ready charm. Lynott's roguish demeanour propelled Lizzy as much as the twin guitar acrobatics of Gorham and Robertson throughout the classic line years, of course, and every bad boy tear is here in full: "Still In Love", "Don't Believe A Word", "Sarah"--the list goes on and on. Lizzy knew their way around a killer pop tune as well and many of their anthems are all-time classics. "The Boys Are Back In Town", naturally (and if you've never screamed "the jukebox in the corner blasting out my favourite song!" you sorely need these CDs); "Dancing In The Moonlight" (a brilliant live version); "Alibi"; again the list is endless. The story ends with the band's heavier years, from "Killer On The Loose" to the much undervalued "Cold Sweat" and at the final, emotional reckoning, Thin Lizzy are vagabonds, kings, warriors, angels and, ultimately, heroes. --Ian Watson

Format: Audio CD
This is one of the best boxed sets that I own. Of course, it's not a complete collection of rarities. Such a thing does not exist, the Lizzy catalogue is so labyrinthine with EP's, singles, and Phil's solo projects. It takes a scholar just to keep it all straight. This set however does include a very generous slice of rarities, both previously known and recently unearthed. It also includes pretty much every Lizzy hit and album cut you could want. Everything from my own obscure favourites ("Hollywood", "The Sun Goes Down") to the biggest hits are on here.

The set is divided into four discs, each one reflecting a phase of Thin Lizzy. From the Eric Bell power trio years (was "power trio" even a phrase back then?) to the final Phil single "Nineteen" (famously covered by Bad 4 Good), there is no era of the band overlooked. The liner notes are also excellent, with lots of photos and text, and detailed credits.

The rarities and B-sides are pure gold. I love "Half Caste". How hard it must have been being Phil Lynott growing up in Dublin. "The boy's not black, he's brown" goes the painful lyric. "Sitamoia" (written by Brian Downey) is a ferocious fast rocker as only Lizzy could do. "Sugar Blues" is a live one featuring the underrated Snowy White doing what he does best, the blues.

With complete honesty, there isn't one single track I would have changed on this set. I think of all my favourites and check to see if they're on here. "Johnny the Fox Meets Jimmy the Weed"? Check. "Massacre"? Check. "The Rocker"? Check. "King's Call"? Check. "Fool's Gold"? Check. "Romeo And The Lonely Girl"? Check. "Dancing In The Moonlight"? Check.

This is an import 4 cd box set anthology of Irish twin guitar rockers Thin Lizzy. I have been eagerly awaiting a comprehensive anthology of one of my favorite bands for some time. The guitarists in the band at one time or another have included the likes of Eric Bell, Gary Moore, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson, Snowy White, and John Sykes. The original band was a trio consisting of Eric Bell (guitar), Phil Lynott (bass & vocals), and Brian Downey (drums). This early edition of the band is spotlighted on the first disk of this set. This edition of the band was not as hard rocking as the later editions of the band. Highlights of this disk include their first hit "Whiskey In The Jar" and "Rocker". The version of "Rocker" is a longer version than the one on the 2 cd "Wild One" compilation. The long solo by Eric Bell is edited out of that version. The first disk contains a few rarities such as single b-sides, and songs from the "New Day" ep. I was disappointed that "Gonna Creep Up On You" one of the better songs from this period was not included.
The second disk begins with another non-lp b side from the Eric Bell edition of the band and then features a couple of tracks from Gary Moore's first tenure with the band. Then the classic twin guitar line up of the band is featured when Moore left as was replaced by the non Irish guitar duo of Scott Gorham from the U.S. and Brian Robertson from Scotland. This was my own personal favorite edition of the band. Highlights of the second disk include their biggest hit "The Boys Are Back In Town", a cover of Bob Segar's "Rosalie", "Cowboy Song" And "Emerald". Rarities include non-lp tracks like "Half Caste" and the "Fighting" lp outtake "Try A Little Harder".

Title says it all: First of all if your collection of Thin Lizzy is limited then this is the box set for you...wonderful selection and great sound (the songs were re-mastered for this set and they sound "cleaner" then my old CD's (yes, I listened and compared)...For those of you who are fans THERE ARE SOME GEMS HERE...many B-sides are found throughout the set including: Dublin,Randolph's Tango, Here I go Again,Cruising In the Lizzy Mobile, Sitamoia,Halfcaste,Me and the Boys, Sugar Blues (Live),Song For Jimi,Sisters Of of course many of you may already have this stuff as it has long been avaialble on "unoffical" releases. These selections "sound" much better though. Over all this set has a good flow and most of the selections I think tell the story of the evolution of this band throughout the years...a wonderful essay with lots of rare pictures accompanies this set...very professional and a great tribute to a great band....nothing like them anymore.

Hi,I must say this is one amazin box set.I mean anything with Thin Lizzy is amazin, but this just takes the cake. Perfect song selection and the rare tracks/Demos are awsome too. The box set is also like a book to , so u get a box set and a book, wut else could u ask for. The best rare track is Sisters of Mercy beautiful song, almost brings tears to my eyes. Old Town is amazin too, in that song Phil is asking for help, but no one heard him.My fav songs are CowBoy Song,Rosisle,Renegade,FoolsGold,Fighting,Lizzy Mobile,. Also like I stated before the box set is like a book and it tells you the whole bands history,all the former band memebers,and discgorophy,realse of songs and there dates.SO PLEASE BUY THIS BOX SET YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED.....PHIL LYNOTT GOD BLESS HIM.....WHERE EVER HE IS :)
