This writerly '70s boogie band has garnered a posthumous hipster fan base in recent years, and here their two classic 1976 albums are properly celebrated with two-CD remastered editions, featuring demos, alternate versions, and BBC sessions. Black and, well, Irish, with more Spandex than an American Apparel warehouse, frontman Phil Lynott was a nonpareil figure -- late Arthur Lee meets early Bruce Springsteen, delivering dexterous Allman Brothers guitar harmonies with Kiss-like swagger.
