BLUE MURDER – Screaming Blue Murder: Dedicated To Phil Lynott [Japan SHM-CD]
BLUE MURDER was without a doubt one of the greatest hard rock acts ever. Of course we featured HERE their 2 first albums, but you need to complete the band’s discography with this “Screaming Blue Murder: Dedicated To Phil Lynott”, the band’s third and final release, initially issued only in Japan.
More like a John Sykes solo LP but released under the Blue Murder moniker, this recent Japanese version on SHM-CD is the one to get.
Recorded live – but believe me, it’s amazing – Sykes subtitled this CD ‘Dedicated to Phil Lynott’, so it’s no surprise that there are three Thin Lizzy classics in the playlist: Cold Sweat, Please Don’t Leave Me and Dancin’ in the Moonlight. As Sykes was the guitar player on Whitesnake’s 1987 too, Still of the Night is on here as well (killer version).
The remaining songs are six originals from both studio offerings of Blue Murder.
Sykes and the band are on fire here, and for me, some of these versions are even better than the originals.
I can’t help but “Screaming Blue Murder: Dedicated To Phil Lynott” still sent shivers down my spine with each listen. It’s so emotional, vital, authentic… this is pure rock n roll, from the guts.
And even better with this pristine Japan SHM-CD.
