Thin Lizzy was founded one night in late 1969 in Dublin, Ireland, when Belfast guitarist Eric Bell and organist Eric Wrixon met Orphanage band members Phil Lynott and drummer Brian Downey.
Thin Lizzy COLLECTED is a great collection of the many faces of the band. In late 1972 Thin Lizzy released their first hit in the version of a traditional Irish ballad, "Whiskey In The Jar". It topped the worldwide charts. They released their third album Vagabonds Of The Western World containing their next single "The Rocker".
Nightlife, the fourth studio album was released in 1974. The album was produced by Ron Nevison and featured Gary Moore on lead guitar on "Still In Love With You".
The fifth studio album Fighting was released in September 1975 and it showed the first real evidence of the twin guitar sound that would lead the band towards their greatest successes. It includes the tracks "Suicide" and "Wild One".
After a successful multi-band tour in support of Status Quo, the band recorded the album Jailbreak. The album was released in 1976 and featured the tracks "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", as well as the real gem "Emerald". The twin guitar sound had been fully developed by this time. Thin Lizzy flew to Canada in 1977 as a trio to record their next album, with Gorham handling all the guitar parts. The album included the songs "Dancing In The Moonlight" and "Bad Reputation".
At the beginning of 1979 they recorded Black Rose: A Rock Legend in Paris. The album was released in 1979 and has been described as one of the band's greatest, most successful album.
Lynott worked on his solo career with several albums. It spawned the solo tracks "King's Call" and "Yellow Pearl". In the meantime Thin Lizzy released their twelfth studio album including the wonderful tracks "The Sun Goes Down" and "Cold Sweat".
