This is a very nice Original British Vertigo pressing with the cool die-cut gatefold cover. I haven't had much luck with Thin Lizzy records over the years but this one is really good -- it sounds strong and plays quietly. The domestic copies don't come close in my experience, and everything here - including the great title song and "The Boys Are Back In Town" - sounds great.
5 stars Allmusic: "There's such kinetic energy to the band that it still sounds immediate no matter how many times it's played... a truly exceptional album."
Vinyl: VG+ (light superficial wear)
Cover: VG+ (top seam and edges have some wear but pretty nice overall)
Play notes: Good sound and quiet vinyl, a solid copy
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
