DESCRIPTION

Dublin's Thin Lizzy have become one of the most revered cult acts of all time. Studious and discerning fans of hard rock the world over revelling in the storytelling acumen of the legendary Phil Lynott and the craft and class of his band. Through numerous new interviews with most of the principles involved and a mountain of painstaking research, From Dublin To Jailbreak: Thin Lizzy 69 - 76 examines the band's career up to 1976 culminating in the superlative and sparkling Jailbreak, home of such hits as 'Cowboy Song', 'Emerald', 'Jailbreak' and 'The Boys Are Back In Town' and Johnny The Fox that included the hit single 'Don't Believe A Word'. Along the way, alcohol and drugs wreaked havoc between band members, producers and managers, but despite line-up changes and a mostly grinding, rock scrabble existence, Ireland's favourite sons persevered, finally achieving the smash hit record they'd deserved for so long. Popoff's celebrated record-by-record methodology highlights a new appreciation of the deep album tracks hiding within this singular band's often forgotten early years. The book also reveals Phil Lynott in all his dastardly guises, making From Dublin To Jailbreak: Thin Lizzy 69 - 76, an essential read for the devoted fans.
