Click here for larger imageA new expanded CD version of Back On The Streets will be released by Universal Music on 23rd of September. Although we have been expected something like that the double Thin Lizzy deluxe editions, with rare versions and unreleased tracks, we still can be happy with this remastered version, because it wasn't re-released in Europe/USA since the late '80s/early '90s. It was available from time to time only on the Japanese market on a much higher price than this forthcoming edition. This album was originally released in December 1978, and this time it is supplemented with the B-side of the single "Back On The Streets", a song called "Track Nine", and three versions of "Spanish Guitar". Of course there were other tracks as well, what we've hoped for that we will be able to hear in a proper remastered version, like the alternate US versions of "Don't Believe A Word" and "Parisienne Walkways", or the unreleased songs like "Road Of Pain" and "Track Ten". Not to mention the original versions of the jazzy songs and "Parisienne Walkways" recorded in the first round, during the spring of 1978. Maybe next time...
