Sometimes while trudging through the bargain bins you find a cd worth buying. This is one of them. Yellow Pearl is an inexpensive way of owning the 'best' of Phil's solo material. I was never a big fan of his solo stuff, but this contains anything worth listening to again and again. No real rarities, but it does have Gary Moore's version of Parisienne Walkways with Phil on vocals. Which was the best thing on Gary's Back On The Street solo release. Most the stuff on here is Lynott trying to sound like a contemporary artist from that time (early 80's). Ugghh. Synths, bad percussion, electronic drums? Phil is "The Rocker". Period. End of the story. His life was over way too soon, and is missed. Stick to the Thin Lizzy material, and spread their music to the unitiated. We'll all be better for it.
