Thin Lizzy's Lead Vocalist!
Featuring Other Lizzy Members and Mark Knopfler!
Regularly cited as one of the greatest pure Rock stars of all time, Philip Lynott had already guided hard rock heroes Thin Lizzy for over a decade and nine studio albums before embarking on his first solo effort, Solo in Soho, in 1980. Current and former Lizzy members guested on the album including Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Snowy White, and Gary Moore. Brian Robertson also contributed to the writing of "Girls".
Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler plays on "King's Call", a lament to Elvis Presley. Huey Lewis plays harmonica on "Tattoo (Giving It All Up For Love)" and "Ode To A Black Man". Lewis later covered the former on his 1982 album, Picture This.
"Yellow Pearl" was released as a single in two remixed versions - the first of these being later used as the theme tune from 19811986 for the British music TV programme Top Of The Pops.
