- STUNNING LIVE BROADCAST RECORDING FROM EVERONE’S SECOND FAVOURITE BAND TO FEATURE PHIL LYNOTT!
- Formed in 1984 as the brainchild of – by then – ex-Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott, following the break-up of Lynott’s legendary former group, the birth of Grand Slam can be traced back to the solo band Lynott formed during his July/August 1983 a tour of Scandinavia. This line-up featured Magnum keyboard player Mark Stanway, Thin Lizzy members Brian Downey (drums) and John Sykes (lead guitar) plus rhythm guitarist Doish Nagle (ex of The Bogey Boys). When Thin Lizzy completed its farewell tour in September 1983, Lynott continued working with this configuration as a band project that eventually became known as Grand Slam. Sykes departed following an offer to join Whitesnake and was replaced with ex-Stampede guitarist Laurence Archer. Prior to the band’s first shows, Downey left to be replaced by Robbie Brennan.
- With the line-up of Lynott, Stanway, Archer, Nagle and Brennan, Grand Slam played its first show in Waterford, Ireland on 26 April 1984. The band’s live set contained a mixture of new songs, written by various combinations of Lynott, Stanway and Archer, as well as songs from Lynott’s solo career plus selected Lizzy songs. Grand Slam toured extensively in the UK and Eire throughout 1984, with shows favourably received by both audiences and media. The band also appeared at high-profile festivals such as Crystal Palace (as special guests of Status Quo), Nostell Priory (as special guests of Marillion) and the Kerrang Weekender festival in Great Yarmouth.
- It is the extraordinary show that Phil and Grand Slam put on in Great Yarmouth on 12th October 1984 that is the subject of this new 2LP release, a performance recorded for live FM broadcast at the time ad which today still sounds as fresh, dynamic and exciting as the day it was recorded more than 35 years ago. Available here for the first time, this release is certain to become a live favourite among Lynott, Lizzy and Grand Slam fans and collectors the world across.
