Thin Lizzy are one of rock music's most recognisable names. The fiery Dublin band exploded onto the scene with a fresh sound, look and attitude. Lead by the incomparable Phil Lynott, the band reached many peaks and influenced generations of musicians with classic tracks such as 'Jailbreak', 'The Boys Are Back In Town', 'Still In Love With You', 'Cold Sweat', 'Emerald' and 'Don't Believe A Word'.

Most rock historians would agree the pinnacle of their commercial success was in 1983, followed by the bands' premature demise, as they played their last gig in September of 1984. Just two years later, the world was shocked when singer/bassist and founding member Phil Lynott passed away at the age of thirty six. Twenty five years have passed, the world has changed, but the amazing body of work that is Thin Lizzy still retains all of its vibrancy and influence.

Universal Music is proud to announce the release of two more seminal albums and a DVD. Both albums feature sleeve notes from Malcolm Dome and feature a bonus disc of b-sides, demos and previously unreleased material; while the DVD features archive material never-before-released on home video.

Nightlife – Deluxe Edition

'Nightlife' was the fourth studio album from Thin Lizzy, released in 1974.This was the the first album to be recorded by Mercury and was to mark the start of their classic era featuring Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson.

The opening track 'She Knows' and the upbeat 'Showdown' are the high-water marks of this album. Having said this, there are some moments of tough rock n' roll seen through 'It's Only Money' and 'Sha-la-la', which both act as a perfect showcase for Gorham and Robertson. 'Nightlife' has a soulful sound that Thin Lizzy's earlier records did not. This is due to Phil Lynott's increasing growth as a songwriter.

Fighting – Deluxe Edition

'Fighting' was the fifth studio album, released in 1975. Thin Lizzy were to finally create an identifiable sound drawn from hard rock, folk, pop and rhythm and blues. 'Fighting' was to make a clear break away from the subdued nature of 'Nightlife', thus the lyrics "fighting my way back" on the title track seem hard to not interpret.

'Fighting' is a tense, vicious rock and roll album and marked the sound of the band really coming into their own. It's hard not to be enthralled at their interplay especially when they were combined with Phil Lynott. Whether he's writing hard-charging rockers like 'Wild One' and 'For Those Who Love To Live' or combining both on 'Freedom Song', his songs manage to be both mythic and ordinary. This is testament to the strength of this incarnation of Thin Lizzy, who truly began their classic era with this dynamic LP.

Live at the National Stadium Dublin – DVD

This fantastic DVD offers a treasure trove for Thin Lizzy fans, offering a unique package of never-before-released archive material from Ireland's National broadcaster RTE.

· On Stage at the National Stadium: Concert
Described as The Holy Grail for Thin Lizzy fans, this show captures the band at their very best in front of an adoring home crowd. After various changes in the preceding years the classic 4-piece line-up was finally in place. This is the only live footage of much of the classics from the Fighting era and it shows Thin Lizzy in their prime, lean and hungry to conquer the world! The show's original audio has been newly restored and remastered for 2012, allowing fans to rightly hear the band in their full glory.

· Renegade – The Philip Lynott Story: Documentary
This unique film offers an in-depth, fly-on-the-wall discussion with Phil himself, an opportunity forever missed to many due to his passing at the age of 36. It offers an amazing personal insight into Phil's creative work as well as the only known live footage of his solo band.

· The Sun Goes Down: Documentary
A documentary shot in Ireland during the band's 'Thunder And Lightning' tour in 1983 featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage as well as two live tracks, 'Are You Ready' from the show in Belfast and 'The Sun Goes Down' from Dublin.

· Special Bonus Features
§ 6/5 Live special RTE TV performance presented by Dave Heffernan featuring two live tracks: 'Are You Ready' and 'Whiskey In The Jar'
§ 'Old Town' promo video produced for RTE and featuring Phil Lynott as a solo artist.
