1972's Shades Of A Blue Orphanage is Thin Lizzy's second full-length recording named in homage to the members' former groups (Eric Bell's Shades of Blue and Lynott and Brian Downey's Orphanage). The soft, sensitive –Sarah" was written for Phil Lynott's grandmother who raised him in lieu of his absent mother. –I Don't Want To Forget How To Jive" sees the band try their hand at rockabilly, and –Chatting Today" evokes the emotive performances of Richie Havens. As a whole, Shades Of A Blue Orphanage presents a version of the band that places its foundations beyond the hard rock for which the group are famous.
