RED VINYL REISSUE OF THIN LIZZYS ELEVENTH ALBUM.
Renegade was the eleventh studio album by Irish band Thin Lizzy, released in 1981.
Though not his first appearance, this was the first album in which keyboard player
Darren Wharton was credited as a permanent member, becoming the fifth member
of the line-up. As such, he made a contribution as a song-writer on the opening track
"Angel of Death". However, even though he had officially joined the band, his picture
was omitted from the album sleeve. It was also their last album with guitarist
Snowy White. By his own admission, White was more suited to playing blues
than heavy rock and he quit by mutual agreement the following year.
