THIN LIZZY RELEASE CLASSIC ALBUM SELECTION BOX SET

BOX SET INCLUDING THE WHOLE BACK CATALOGUE – NIGHTLIFE, FIGHTING, JAILBREAK, JOHNNY THE FOX ,BAD REPUTATION & BLACK ROSE

Lizzy is one of rock music’s most recognisable names. The fiery Dublin band exploded onto the scene with a fresh sound, look and attitude. Lead by the incomparable Phil Lynott, the band reached many peaks and influenced generations of musicians with classic tracks such as “Jailbreak”, “The Boys Are Back In Town”, “Still In Love With You”, “Cold Sweat”, “Emerald” and “Don’t Believe A Word”.

Most rock historians would agree the pinnacle of their commercial success was in 1983, followed by the bands’ premature demise, as they played their last gig in September of 1984. Just two years later, the world was shocked when singer/bassist and founding member Phil Lynott passed away at the age of thirty six. Twenty five years have passed, the world has changed, but the amazing body of work that is Thin Lizzy still retains all of its vibrancy and influence.

Now following one of their most successful tours to date which is still going strong through 2012, Thin Lizzy have teamed up with USM to release the ultimate box set featuring all their hit albums:
