THIN LIZZY | CHINATOWN (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION)
Released in 1980 as a successful follow-up to their much loved Black Rose - A Rock Legend (Friday Music 3338), Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and new guitar sensation Snowy White forged ahead once again with their trademark hard rock sound and continued their assault on audiences worldwide with their tenth masterpiece Chinatown. As the powerful opener We Will Be Strong kicks the album into full gear, featuring the dual lead guitars of Scott Gorham and Snowy White, known for creating some of the finest and most familiar guitar riffs in music history, they continue their legendary style with this metal anthem. Phil Lynott's vocal and bass attack notched up another career defining song as well, which served the band well for years and has truly been one of their most revered tunes. Seven more incredible performances from these rock and roll warriors continue to thrill the listener including more Phil Lynott hard rock classics like Killer on the Loose, the blues belter Sugar Blues and the stellar title smash Chinatown.More rockers flow like the funk infused Having a Good Time and the brilliant Thin Lizzy anthem Genocide (The Killing Of The Buffalo). Even the heartwarming Sweetheart, which showcases a soulful side of Lynott's writing and vocal ability, truly made this album a fan favorite for years to come. The incredible album closer Hey You truly captures the band's love for playing hard rock and playing it righteously, never to be duplicated on wax ever again. Tragically, we lost the musical genius Phil Lynott in 1986 and more recently the passing of guitar legend Gary Moore. This was their first collaboration together as members of Thin Lizzy, and with the impeccable musicianship of Scott Gorham and Brian Downey all delivering the goods, Chinatown is considered one of their greatest achievements in their enduring album catalog. Mastered impeccably from the original authorized Warner Music tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, Friday Music in very honored and enthusiastic to welcome back the much heralded ThinLizzy classic Chinatown for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. To make this more of a treasure for your limited edition Thin Lizzy collection, we are also including a first time gatefold cover which features the legendary original album cover art as well as the original photos and artwork included in the album inner sleeve not seen in years.
