The band known as Thin Lizzy left an indelible imprint on Rock and Roll beginning with their 1976 classic, Jailbreak. They were starting to gain an broader audience even before Jailbreak but that album’s three hits pushed them into the blinding lights. Over their 12 studio and one live set, Thin Lizzy gave us an enduring legacy still felt today. 

On October 23, Virgin/Universal will release a 6CD/1DVD Boxed set that will deliver 99 career tracks in a Super 10″by 6″ slip-cased box filled with the CDs, DVD, tour program replicas, a hard-bound book filled with photos and notes, a Lynott poetry book, and four prints. The DVD will contain the Bad Reputation BBC documentary, and the band’s filmed participation in Rod Stewart’s A Night On The Town TV show. 

The Box is being called Thin Lizzy – Rock Legends. This ultimate set has been previously teased months back.
