Contrary to the information on the front cover, these tracks were recorded in 1970.

In early 1970, having left Skid Row, Phil Lynott brought his new group

Thin Lizzy into Trend anxious to try out their new 8 Track recording machine

which was the only one in the country. On that session were Phil, Brian Downey on drums

and Eric Bell and Gary Moore on guitars as well as some other musicians.

The recordings were engineered and produced by studio owner John D’Ardis.

*** Special Note ***


These recordings can also be found on Philip Lynott: A MAN AND HIS MUSIC Volume V and again on Philip Lynott: A MAN AND HIS MUSIC Volume VIII.

In 2006 HOT PRESS officially released these tracks, from the master tapes. It was a limited release of 22,000 copies and has quickly become a collectors item. Click here for details
