    You can watch the full show on you tube, there are a few good recordings

    All my Thin Lizzy mp3s are from there marvellous album Live and Dangerous.. .. supposedly LIVE but it always sounded studio perfect to me ..

    Maybe you know more about that ??

    Yes, apparently a lot of "tinkering" took place in the mixing studio but that was fairly commonplace and probably more so nowadays. This takes nothing away from Lizzy who were one of the best live bands around and certainly amongst the hardest working and most prolific touring bands. The crushing riffs from the twin Les pauls of robertson and gorham played through a wall of Marshalls was truly brain melting stuff...great time to be a rock fan as all the best bands (with one or two exceptions) came out of this era.
