... but apparently neither the title nor the planned artwork have met with fan approval and will be changed, yet again!!!! I don't know if this will further delay the release of the ablum from it's most recently annouced release date of September 1999, but I will be very surprised if it doesn't.
One of the 5 CDs promised for release in 1998 by Thin Lizzy Management (CMO), none of which have yet appeared, the most recent promised date of this is now September 1999.
Further details when I have them.
