THIN LIZZY: Classic Tracks To Be Remixed?

According to a posting on the Thin Lizzy – A Rock Legend web site, a number of tracks from classic THIN LIZZY albums — from "Nightlife", which was released when Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson joined the band for the LIZZY golden period, until their swansong, "Thunder And Lightning" — may soon get the remix treatment. The rights to the albums are in the posession of band's trustees, including Scott Gorham and Brian Downey. Now they are deciding what to do with them, and remixing the material to make it "harder" and more reflective of the band's live sound appears to be top of the agenda. Scott Gorham has said that this has long been a mission for him. "Even after we had finished recording the albums back then, we all knew that the production was shit," he has been quoted as stating. "The production of a THIN LIZZY album was always so bad, and I could never understand what we were doing wrong when it sounded so great on stage. Then we'd get into the studio and we'd lose it. We'd come up with these 'cocktail' albums. I didn't get it and I always wanted to have a go at fixing it. The first thing we want to do is pick an album's worth of material that we want to remix.
