Released on 13 April 1979, Black Rose: A Rock Legend is the ninth studio album by Thin Lizzy. It has been described as one of the band’s ‘greatest, most successful albums’. It was the first time that blues rock guitarist Gary Moore remained in Thin Lizzy long enough to record an album – after previous brief stints in 1974 and 1977 with the band. The album peaked at No. 2 on the UK charts – making it the band’s highest-charting album in the UK. It was their fourth consecutive album to be certified Gold by the BPI.

Greg Prato of AllMusic described the album as: ‘Thin Lizzy’s last true classic album’ and ‘their most musically varied, accomplished, and successful studio album.’ He praised Moore’s presence as ‘a perfect fit’. In his Collectors Guide to Heavy Metal, Martin Popoff defined the album as ‘a charmed release’ where Waiting for an Alibi and Got to Give It Up emerge as ‘two Thin Lizzy classics’ and the title track ‘is on a plane more in league with fine literature than anything as base as rock ‘n’ roll.’
