- 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.
Thin Lizzy’s band’s self-titled debut was released on 30 April 1971. The band’s three members – Phil Lynott, Brian Downey and Eric Bell – hadn’t yet relocated to the UK, but they stayed in London for the duration of the album sessions with producer Nick Tauber at West Hampstead’s Decca Studios in January 1971. Well-received critically, Thin Lizzy included the band’s first classic rocker, ‘Look What The Wind Blew In’, in addition to subtle ballads (‘Honesty Is No Excuse’, ‘Eire’, ‘Saga Of The Ageing Orphan’) and Lynott’s affectionate tribute to his mother Philomena’s Manchester guest house on ‘Clifton Grange Hotel’.
