TVD's Daily Wax | Thin Lizzy "Jailbreak"

I'm not sure if it was the Iron Maiden LP from yesterday or the dilemma with categorizing and/or alphabetizing my records...but the clouds parted and the comments exploded. For god, for bad, and well, often way off topic. Yet, this was the just the type of conversations we'd have day in and day out at the record stores I worked in. I guess 'High Fidelity' captured it all rather well--and really what I'd envisioned this forum to be way back when (like last July, ahem...) So, keep 'em coming. Comment is king.

Now, to Swiss Adam's dismay, I give you the last of cartoon rock week:

Thin Lizzy - Cowboy Song (Mp3)
Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak (Mp3)
Thin Lizzy - Running Back (Mp3)
Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back In Town (Mp3)
Thin Lizzy - Warriors (Mp3)

Front page billing! Come On.

All in good humor! We'll return to our regularly scheduled programming--tomorrow!

Thanks Vinyl District. It's actually been good fun being slagged off by Americans for disliking Iron Maiden. A bit of a barney can be good. The same thing happened a while ago on another blog when I expressed a similar view about The Police. Come to think of it (he adds provocatively) The Police are loads worse than Iron Maiden.

The Vinyl District said... argument could be made...!

(I feel the same way about REM...blech...)

The only thing cartoon about Thin Lizzy is the cover of this record. This was a Rock and Roll band to the 15th power. Guitars, Drums, a Bad Assed front man(and one of the only r'n'rers to have their own statue) and more guitars. Melodic but as hard and sharp as the edge of a broken beer glass. Hundreds have attempted to write a song that sounded like a prison escape, but only Thin Lizzy got close enough to actually call it "Jailbreak".
