Rating: 4/5

What can be said about Phil Lynott that hasn’t already been said countless times before? The man was a genius who wrote some killer tunes that we will enjoy for eternity. From “The Boys Are Back In Town” to “Jailbreak” to “Cowboy Song” to…. He wrote many amazing songs.

This DVD is the band’s 1981 performance at Rockpalast in Germany. This was getting around the time of the bands unfortunate demise. Some even call it their ‘questionable’ period. Call it whatever you may, the music was still fantastic and the live show still smoked. Performing such classics as the ones mentioned above as well as some not so well known’s. Throughout the entire show Phil don’t let up for a second, he’s full on. Armed with Snowy White and Scot Gorham on guitars how could you lose?

The only drawback to this release is the picture quality in a few places and the fact that there is no performance of “Whiskey In the Jar”. This is only a minor complaint and does not deter from the fine performance from Phil and Thin Lizzy.
