Genre: Rock: Renegade was the eleventh studio album by Irish band Thin Lizzy, released in 1981. Though not his first appearance, this was the first album in which keyboard player Darren Wharton was credited as a permanent member, becoming the fifth member of the line-up. As such, he made a contribution as a songwriter on the opening track “Angel of Death”. However, even though he had officially joined the band, his picture was omitted from the album sleeve.

The Vinyl:
This is the original thick heavier chunky slab of vinyl only found like this on the earliest pressings. On visual inspection I can’t see any needle scratches or indeed any marks that would cause any nasty clicks or pops. Any marks that could possibly be seen angled in strong light would be light whyspy sleeve removal grazes type only. 

The Audio Quality:
I have played this vinyl at very loud volume prior to this listing on a top system. Importantly using a dedicated mono cartridge. The audio is cristal clear and vibrant through out no distortion or any signs of groove wear at all. I heard no loud annoying clicks or pops during the play of this vinyl. There was perhaps the odd light static ticks here and there and light crackle in quieter places to mention. Lovely sounding copy. Audio graded at least excellent in my opinion.

The Matrix:
Side 1″659083 A#1″
Side 2″659083 B#2″

The Labels:
These are the original 1st issue Vertyigo Labels: Any spidering can barely be seen angled to the light and there is little if no spindle wear the hole is perfectly round. This has obviously only had very minimal play in my opinion. LOOKS TOTALLY UNPLAYED!

The Record Sleeve:
This is the original plain white paper record sleeve light creasing, browning, becoming fragile with age only.

The Cover:
This is the original 1st issue un-laminated gatefold cover. There are no real nasty creases on the front to mention this is nice and straight as it should be. no edge splits or tares.  The rear is also lovely. Any storage wear is minimal in the form of light rubbing wear with age only I would grade this at least excellent  in my opinion.
