Vinyl: Black Vinyl 180-Gram (with Download Code)
- Label: UMC - Decca
Three landmark Thin Lizzy albums from the early 1970s are set for vinyl reissue through UMC/ Decca Records on 29 November. The legendary Dublin band’s first three studio albums, Thin Lizzy, Shades Of A Blue Orphanage and Vagabonds Of The Western World will all be pressed on 180g vinyl and housed in jackets with replica artwork.
First released on 10 March 1972, Lizzy’s second album, Shades Of A Blue Orphanage was tinged with prog-rock and psychedelia, in addition to the rockabilly-flavoured ‘I Don’t Want To Forget How To Jive’ and Phil Lynott’s heartfelt, piano-led ‘Sarah’. The Thin Lizzy frontman wrote the latter song about his grandmother and it shouldn’t be confused with the Dublin band’s 1979 hit of the same name.
