This live album captures a fiery Thin Lizzy in concert delivering hits like "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town" with even more bite and ferocity than the studio versions. The band's signature twin-guitar leads are in full effect, and frontman Phil Lynott is in peak form, leading the crowd in a rowdy singalong on "Baby Drives Me Crazy" and evoking Van Morrison on "Dancing in the Moonlight." Meanwhile, the heavy, frenetic riffs of "Massacre" offer an indication of just why Lizzy was so influential to '80s metal bands.
