PHIL LYNOTT - Yellow Pearl: A Collection (2010)

"Yellow Pearl" brings you a delightful and intriguing trip into the solo work of Phil Lynott. It's guaranteed to hold you spellbound as you once again realise just how iconic Lynott was – and still is. The collection brings together the hits singles from both solo albums "Solo in Soho" and "The Philiip Lynott Album", such as "King's Call" [a tribute to Elvis Presley], "Dear Miss Lonely Hearts" and hit "Yellow Pearl". Also included is "Parisienne Walkways", released as a single by Gary Moore in 1978, it was written by Lynott [as well as featuring him on vocals] and remains a stand alone classic. There's also B-sides to the singles "Together" and "Old Town", these being "Somebody Else's Dream" and "Beat Of The Drum" respectively and his last solo single, 1985's "Nineteen".

A musical hero, a master songwriter, a majestic singer, a monarch on bass. The proof is here that the whole was so much greater than the sum of these parts. Comes complete with a picture booklet containing extensive sleevenotes by Malcolm Dome).

Misschien even een goed idee om naar het eerste nummer hieronder te luisteren, weet je meteen wat de sound is waar Stefan al zo lang naar zoekt, soms beet heeft maar onder druk van zijn medemuzikanten dan ook steeds weer af moet zetten. Alles met dank aan zijn trouwe line-6. Geniet en denk aan vroeger.
