Skid Row / Phil Lynott :: New Faces, Old Places

Pastoral acoustic guitar, sylvan flute: both ornament a gentle song lamenting the government's displacement of the singer and his “old dad” in order to erect a new highway through their homestead. Before Phil Lynott was leading Thin Lizzy through the thundering “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Jailbreak” and other machismo-laced hard rock anthems, he was lead vocalist on this 1969 song as part of an Irish group called Skid Row (not to be confused with the 80s hair band of the same name).
