    The beginning of 1986 saw the death of our very own Phil Lynott in England. Tommy Vance immediately broadcast his tribute to Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy as we knew them at the end of the "Thunder and Lightning" tour, Based on their best and most heaviest album to date. The tribute brought an end of an era for Thin Lizzy and so this show was then broadcast early 1986. The BBC WS Rock Salad show in its tribute to Thin Lizzy was broadcast approximately January/Early February. Unfortunately we cannot hear what Tommy had to say about this now but the whole show included the BBC Radio One Live In Concert show, The recording in which came from The Reading Rock Festival from England 1983. These were the best live recordings of Thin Lizzy and Tommy Vance re - broadcast most of the live show on that very day. Just weeks following Phils' death. Thin Lizzy was at that point at their best! I recognised these very recordings which came from the show 'Rock Salad" because of the tremendous feedback at the end of this track....... A very rare recording here of the live performance and it brought an end to another great show from the studios in London.

When I heard the intro of this track, Well say no more..... it comes from The legendary Gary Moore Awesome!!!! This is the answer everyone, you have found the answer
