Philip Lynott – The Man and His Music Vol III

with 2 comments

This volume is one of my favorites because of the last 3 songs.  Phil was very close to Huey Lewis and these 3 songs are the last 3 he recorded with The News right before he died.  Essentially they sound like The News with Phil singing but they are cool tunes.  This also has another fave of mine, Out In The Fields.   Oh, Spanish Guitar, Beat Of The Drum, Night In The Life Of A Blues Singer?  Damn!  Good stuff!

1.Nineteen (dub mix) – Philip Lynott (B-side of 12 inch 19)
2. Tennessee Stud – Phil Lynott with TERRY WOODS (of Pogues fame)
3. Whisky In The Jar (Thin Lizzy: live in Cork 4/13/80 w/Scott/Snowy/Midge)
4. Somebody Else’s Dream – Philip Lynott (B-side of Together)
5. A Tribute To Sandy – Philip Lynott
6. Beat Of The Drum – Philip Lynott (B-side of Old Town)
7. Stop Messing Around – Gary Moore (live: May 1985) w/ guest Philip Lynott
8. Out In The Fields – Gary Moore (live: Apollo? 1985) w/ guest Philip Lynott
9. A Night In The Life Of A Blues Singer – THIN LIZZY (B-side of 12 inch 19)
10. A Merry Jingle – the Greedy Bastards! (aka The Greedies)
11. Daddy Rolling Stone – Johnny Thunders w/Philip Lynott
12. We Are The Boys (Extra Medley version)
13. Spanish Guitar – Gary Moore (1979 single) w/Philip Lynott on vocals
