Still missed 21 years later...
Yet there's fantastic news from RTE.ie in Dublin...

Fans' joy as Lynott demos unearthed

I have cut down one of the RTE Radio News reports to 3 minutes - you'll find this attached.
After last year's release of the heavily bootlegged Trend Studios Sessions, another gem is coming up - hopefully very soon!
And there's actually more! The owners of the studio have also discovered a session by Philip's pre- Thin Lizzy band The Orphanage from 1969, done in the same studio shortly after he was sacked from Skid Row!
You can listen to the whole story and the people involved in a 37 minute report over at RTE.ie!
I can't wait for this!
Happy New Year, everyone!
