"Live And Dangerous" and "Sight and Sound in Concert" Thin Lizzy (rip dvds)

Este é o típico post que acho difícil fazer sem nunca ter postado nada deles.
A importância deles pra música é tal e muitos ainda desconhecem por completo sua essência, e por isso a dificuldade em simplesmente sair fazendo comentários quaisquer que sejam.

Então junto a mais um trabalho do maninho Poucosiso, trouxe o que pude e desse pra explicar quem são e porque da sua importância e também o porque de uma postagem desta valer a pena.

São dois vídeos de duas das melhores fases dos caras com o maluco e idealizador de tudo Phill Lynott e seu bando de musico fantásticos, basta baixar e viajar, aproveite e vá lendo enquanto ouve se não conhece muito e se já é viajado na "parada" é afortunado como poucos por conhecer uma das melhores bandas que já surgiu no planeta.

"Thin Lizzy é uma banda de hard rock da Irlanda, formanda em Dublin no ano de 1969. A banda foi liderada, ao longo de sua carreira, pelo cantor e compositor Phil Lynott, e são conhecidos por hits como "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" e "The Boys Are Back in Town", todos sucessos internacionais tocados regularmente em estações de rádio especializadas em hard rock e rock clássico. Após a morte de Lynott, diversas encarnações da banda surgiram ao longo dos anos, que culminaram numa formação mais estável baseada em torno dos guitarristas Scott Gorham e John Sykes.
Sykes abandonou a banda em junho de 2009.

Como líder do Thin Lizzy, Lynott compôs ou co-compôs a maior parte das canções da banda. Também foi um dos poucos negros a conseguir algum sucesso significativo no hard rock. Além de ser multirracial, a banda também se notabilizou por recrutar membros em ambos os lados da fronteira irlandesa (com membros nascidos na Escócia, Irlanda do Norte, Inglaterra e, ainda, Estados Unidos), e das comunidades católica e protestante da ilha.

Sua música reflete uma ampla gama de influências, incluindo a country music, o rock psicodélico, a música irlandesa e a música tradicional folclórica daquele país; porém é classificada geralmente como hard rock ou, por vezes, heavy metal.
A revista Rolling Stone descreveu a banda como "distintamente hard rock", "muito distante da matilha zurrante de meados da década de 70".

John Dougan, crítico do site Allmusic, escreveu que "como a força criativa da banda, Lynott era um compositor mais inteligente e perspicaz que muitos de sua classe, preferindo os dramas de amor e ódio cotidianos da classe operária, influenciado por Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen e virtualmente quase toda a tradição literária irlandesa."Van Morrison, Jeff Beck e Jimi Hendrix foram grandes influências durante o início da banda,e entre as influências posteriores estão os artistas americanos Little Feat e Bob Seger.
Em maio de 2010 foi anunciado pelos remanescentes do thin lizzy um retorno com uma nova formação para 2011.
"In case you were wondering, the Live And Dangerous DVD is not simply a concert video recording of the band's seminal 1978 live double album of the same name. The Live And Dangerous album was actually pieced together from various shows during Thin Lizzy's 1977 tour and, supposedly, it also featured more re-recorded parts than even Kiss Alive. I mean no disparagement as both are among my all-time favorite "live" rock albums, but I do prefer them 100% live and untouched.

The Live And Dangerous DVD features a concert that was recorded at The Rainbow Theater in London on March 29, 1978, and was first aired on British TV to promote the new live album. The show was also released the same year on VHS video. The performance features a tight, 11-song set that showcases what a dynamic live act Thin Lizzy were, and what a memorable group of songs they churned out in such a short period.While most bands today would be hard pressed to squeeze out two albums in a five year span, Thin Lizzy spit out Nightlife, Fighting, Jailbreak, Johnny The Fox, Bad Reputation, and Live And Dangerous between 1974-1978 — and they all rocked.

The video begins with a prerecorded version of "Rosalie" playing in the background as the road crew are shown setting up the band's equipment at the venue. In fact, Thin Lizzy used to open for — and became big fans of — Bob Seger, which is how their muscular cover of this song came about. And speaking of Seger, where in the hell is his concert DVD?!The concert kicks off with the band's best known song, "The Boys Are Back In Town," and these boys leave no doubt that something special lay in store on this night. Featuring their quintessential line-up of Phil Lynott (vocals/bass), Scott Gorham (guitar), Brian Robertson (guitar), and Brian Downey (drums), Thin Lizzy were, by this point, at the peak of their powers.

What follows is a non-stop barrage of intense rockers, easing up only briefly for the stunning ballad, "Still In Love With You," Lynott's poignant vocal performance demonstrating part of why he became such a star.

One of the highlights of the set is the light and funky "Dancing In The Moonlight," replete with some killer sax from John Earle, spilling right into an alternately merciless "Massacre." "Sha La La" features a short drum solo from the underrated Brian Downey (essentially John Bonham with a double-bass drum), proving that this band could rock just as hard as any other. They close the show with a previously unreleased song, "Me And The Boys," which was not included on the Live And Dangerous album.The original full-screen picture has been restored quite nicely, and the DTS 5.1 surround remix is certainly an improvement over the original audio source, but don't expect an heroic Led Zeppelin-like DVD restoration here. It still looks and sounds very much like a '70s concert film. However, in spite of its split-screen, slow-motion, and superimposed video techniques, which were were common in music videos of this era, the terrific camera work effectively transports you right back to this 1978 night with a front row seat.

The extras are highlighted by a Sight & Sound In Concert feature, which was filmed during Thin Lizzy's farewell tour of 1983 on the eve of the release of their final studio album, Thunder And Lightning. This 46-minute, 8-song set, which features then-present Lizzy guitarist John Sykes on guitar instead of Brian Robertson, is nearly as good as the main feature.

The extra features also include five Thin Lizzy performances from the British Top Of The Pops television show between 1973 and 1979, a 45-minute interview from 2007 with Brian Robertson, Scott Gorham and Brian Downey, and a Live From Derby (1975) bonus CD that includes seven tracks. All of these extras make this DVD a bargain.

It's been a long time coming, but the new Live And Dangerous DVD certainly lives up to the hype.
