The first version of Thin Lizzy's 'Still In Love With You' was recorded in 1974, when Gary Moore was covering for the recently departed Eric Bell. Pretty soon, he was also gone and after some unsuccessful line-up experiments, the band arrived that the classic format of Scott Gorman and Robbo on the dueling Les Paul guitars.

And so they started work on the album 'Night Life'. The new unit was starting to work and a distinct sound was blossoming. But however they worked on 'Still In Love With You', they could never improve on the Gary Moore solo. So they left it on the record, untouched and ringing beautifully into posterity. Frankie Miller helped out on vocals and Phil gave it his all. Impressive.
