Thin Lizzy: Live at the BBC Box Set

Thin Lizzy: Live at the BBC Box SetThin Lizzy has released a massive seven-disc box set of the group’s rare performances, culled from the BBC recordings which still exist in the archives. The recordings chart the band’s progression from their early years, three piece version to the band’s high point, becoming known as one of the greatest live acts of all time. This is the first time these recordings have been collected together and offered in a complete set.

The set includes the last concert with bassist Phil Lynott, from the Reading festival in 1983, as well as a DVD of the band’s appearances on Top of the Pops and the Old Grey Whistle Test. Lynott passed away in 1986.

The BBC was known to wipe tapes after broadcast, and some of the Thin Lizzy recordings were lost due to this practice. Thankfully, a few fan recordings of BBC broadcasts were able to be used to offer a more complete set.
