This day in HISTOROCK !!
In 1978, one of the most influential bands ever , Thin Lizzy released the live double album 'Live And Dangerous'. It was recorded in Philadelphia, London and Toronto in 1977, during the tours accompanying the albums Johnny The Fox and Bad Reputation . The album was originally intended to be a studio album . It was also the last album before Life to feature Brian Robertson, who went on to form Wild Horses with ex-Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain . Despite debate about exactly how much of the album is overdubbed, it has received critical acclaim from several sources as one of the most popular rock live albums . According to producer Tony Visconti, the album was "75% recorded in the studio ". Other sources, including the band members themselves, claim that the finished album was "75% live" !! Mixing and overdubs were done at Studio Des Dames in Paris . The record sleeve includes a montage photograph in the studio consisting of a mirror, straw, razor blade and a rolled up five pound note (as an overt reference to cocaine consumption) !! How this band has never even received a nomination from the so called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is inconceivable !! Can somebody answer this question ? Why the fuck is Madonna who has nothing to do with "Rock and Roll" doing in the Hall, while a band that embodies the true spirit of "ROCK" has never even been nominated !!
Keep on ROCKIN !!
