Thin Lizzy: Remembering. Part I (Decca)

Chas de Whalley, Sounds, 21 August 1976

EVERY RECORD company has done it at one time or another. Reactivated old material by an artist who has since had hits with another label. Once, when singles reigned supreme and we would all wait with bated breath for the new Hollies' or Kinks' 45s, the timely release of an ancient and unrepresentative song often hoodwinked the record buying public. Juke Box Jury called it "cashing in", and they didn't approve.
