Thin Lizzy Vagabonds Of The Western World on 180g Import LP + Download
Charged by the creative force of the late Phil Lynott, the legendary Irish hard-rock band Thin Lizzy combined working class romanticism and Irish folk law with piercing dual-guitar lines. Like artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, Lynott was a poet of the downtrodden who helped break down racial stereotypes in rock and became one of the most influential front men in hard rock and heavy metal.
1973's Vagabonds Of The Western World is Thin Lizzy's third and last album from the trio line-up of Lynott (vocals/bass/acoustic guitar), Eric Bell (guitar) and Brian Downey (drums/percussion) before the departure of Bell and the arrival of Scottish-born Brian Robertson and American Scotty Gorham. With a sound still steeped in the band's Dublin heritage, the strong 8-song effort yielded such standout material as "The Rocker," "Little Girl In Bloom" and the title track.
