THIN LIZZY - Thin Lizzy (1971) [2010, with bonus tracks] & Shades Of A Blue Orphanage (1972) [2010, with bonus tracks]
Thin Lizzy is the debut studio album by Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, released on 30 April 1971. The album was followed by the EP New Day, produced and recorded by Nick Tauber at Decca Studios on 14–17 June 1971 and released on 20 August 1971. Eduardo Rivadavia of AllMusic described the album as "surprisingly mellow" and wrote that a number of songs sound "confused and unfinished". However, he did describe "Look What the Wind Blew In" as a "hint of things to come", and that the bonus track "Dublin" from the "New Day" EP contained "Lynott's first great lyric".
Digitally remastered edition of the band's debut album that was first released in 1971. When it was first issued on CD, it was augmented with the New Day EP. Those songs are here as well along with five more tracks to thrill any Lizzy fan! 19 tracks.
Shades of a Blue Orphanage is the second studio album by Irish band Thin Lizzy, released in 1972. The title is a combination of the members' previous bands: Shades of Blue and Orphanage. "Sarah" was written for Phil Lynott's grandmother who raised him when his mother, Philomena, was unable to do so. This song should not be confused with the 1979 song of the same name, for Lynott's daughter, included on Black Rose: A Rock Legend.
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the band's second album featuring seven bonus tracks including BBC sessions, overdubs and remixes. Originally released in 1972, Shades Of A Blue Orphanage was the band's sophomore album. 18 tracks.
