Dedication - The Very Best of Thin Lizzy

This album is a greatest hits collection of the Irish classic rock band Thin Lizzy. It was released in 1991, 5 years after the death of frontman Phil Lynott. The album does a pretty good job of bringing together all of the band's major hits. The hits are well represented, Jailbreak, The Boys Are Back in Town, Dancin' in the Moonlight, and of course, Whiskey in the Jar.

Interestingly, the release date for Dedication (the song), is 1990, and yet it is still listed as having been written and performed on by Phil Lynott. Presumably, they did something similar to what The Beatles did for the Anthology, using already recorded vocals, etc.
