“Down from the glen – came the marching men. With their shields and their swords…”

Here’s a hearty slice of exceptional rock ‘n’ roll from Thin Lizzy. “Emerald” appeared on Lizzy’s Jailbreak L.P. of March, 1976. The song features the band’s signature twin-guitar attack, rumbling bass and singer, Phil Lynott‘s story-telling lyrics and smooth vocals. The Jailbreak album contains the group’s biggest hit, “The Boys Are Back in Town” (#12, US) and you’ll enjoy hearing this classic line-up blasting away.

Watch Thin Lizzy performing “Emerald” live on A Night on the Town in 1976.
