An LP with Thin Lizzy's biggest hits from 1972 to 1981 means that listeners will hear it all over again: "The Boys Are Back in Town," "Jailbreak," and "Killer on the Loose." And since there are no bonus tracks, no rarities, nor even any alternative versions of any songs, the Lizzy fan will see no reason whatsoever for buying this record. On the other hand, it is a decent introduction to Thin Lizzy for the absolute beginner, with a brief biography on the back cover and a number of essential songs, with the focus more on the softer aspect of the band. The album has zero rarity value, so it should be available and cheap at various vinyl sales.
