RIP OFF ALERT

Just had this through the door and I thought it was going to be a DVD version of the live video that was released called Live And Dangerous which in turn was a live video of the Live And Dangerous album released in 78.

It is a one hour documentary and nothing more.
I will have to go back to my video transfer to DVD now.

Yeah I did post about this a while ago - initially thinking, like you, "at last L&D on DVD" but it was soon clear that this was not going to be the case :thumbsdow - I am just watching the "new" DVD & so far its pretty dire with the live bits lifted from other really crap sounding DVDs like the one recorded in Sydney :eek:
Yours very dissappointed ... Paul :suicide:
PS - Look out for the Gary Moore & Friends Tribute to Phil Lynott due out in a couple of weeks - that should be more like it :thumbsup:

Machine Head

... think I'll do the same :smashin: Paul
PS - Rockpalast is the best there is at the mo but not the "classic" lineup IMHO (Phil L Brian D Scott G & Robbo) which is why L&D is so good :devil:

Not that misleading with the sentence "This is the independent critical review of a masterpiece."

Thin Lizzy's 1978 masterpiece is universally recognised as one of the greatest live albums of all time. This amazing live double set captured the classic Lizzy line up of Lynott, Gorham, Robertson and Downie at the very peak of their powers. All of the essential tracks from an amazing band were unleashed in a blistering razor sharp celebration of hard rock that has been rightly hailed as a rock masterpiece. This is the independent critical review of a masterpiece. Featuring rare archive interviews with Phil Lynott, Eric Bell, Philomena Lynott and stunning performances of the classic material.

Track Listing:

1. Jail Break
2. Emerald
3. Rosalie
4. Dancing In The Moonlight
5. Massacre
6. Still In Love With You
7. Cowboy Song
8. The Boys Are Back In Town
9. Are You Ready
10. Sha La La

11. Don't Believe A Word
12. The Rocker

Thats off their website and it looks to me that it is going to be the live concert. The underlined songs don't appear anywhere on the DVD.
If you're not a Lizzy fan then you don't know what Live And Dangerous is. Every Lizzy fan will automatically link those words with the classic live album and video.

Ah, now if the underlined songs don't appear on the dvd, then the description is incorrect. But having said that, I stand by what I said, the description does imply to me that this is not the Live and Dangerous cd concert set, rather a restrospective critique.

It will be interesting what Play have to say - I always thought that the descriptions were provided by the studio/record company rather than Play themsemselves.

I did warn you all about this in another thread. IMHO this company should be closed down they are rip off merchants - feeding off real fans - they have done a lot of Deep Purple rip offs - I am amazed the band has not sued them - the Rainbow DVDs even use clips off videos with no permission. By the way a Rainbow DVD is to be released in June - Live from the Dio era - this is a proper release - for more details see www.deep-purple.net.

I've got a great Rainbow concert that I got off German TV with Dio singing.
I saw Rainbow at Bingley Hall Stafford and Dio's old band ELF were supporting them.

For me it was Rainbow at The Birmingham Odeon, with Cozy on the drums - and Mr Blackmore did indeed smash up his guitar and throw it out into the audience.

Those were the days. :)

Just noticed a review on Amazon -

Save Your Money, March 11, 2006
Reviewer: Miss Sarah Lambert from Wallington, Surrey United Kingdom
If you are a Thin Lizzy fan and particularly if you saw them live on this tour DON'T buy this DVD. This has been not been approved by the band and you can see why. If you are expecting to see a film of a concert this is not it. It is more a critical review by a group of people who constantly interrupt every song featured while they talk about chord changes and whether all the singing/playing was 'live' which wears thin after a very short time. Better still, buy the CD and close your eyes - it will be more authentic!

what happend to my favourite track southbound? which is track 3 by the way
on the live and dangerouse cd. I only heard this through my dad taking me to see Limehouse lizzy who i think are superb.. Southbound never sounds though like it was part of the original show on the cd sounds like been through the mangle at the recording studio to make it smooth.. another classic example of that to for me is when i hear tears in heaven by eric clapton on that mtv live cd.
