Worth seeing just to be amazed at how Brian Robertson is still alive Thin Lizzy Johnny the Fox 3. With Jail Break, Thin Lizzy had finally gotten the break they were looking for. So later that year, , Phil Lynott and the boys decided to head back into the recording studio and put out another album, one to keep up the momentum of Jail Break, and maybe, hopefully, if only turn their band into the next Led Zeppelin.

What came out was Johnny and the Fox, a not-really-concept-album that while it was no where nearly as successful as Jail Break, it still rocked fairly hard. Thin Lizzy always has an air of danger in their music. Johnny the Fox begins with an sweet little outlaw-esque bass line and drums. His vocals mix really well with the slow guitar work.

The song is about starting over again, or something, going back on the borderline. And at long last: the guitar solo. According to Robertson, Lynott wrote "Rocky" with him in mind. Later he regretted his reaction, and wrote the lyric condemning religious prejudice. The lyric imagines Irish people travelling to America to escape the famine and start a new life. The album included two tracks with the name "Johnny" in their titles as well as the album title itself, a character by that name having appeared in earlier songs such as "Showdown" and "The Boys Are Back in Town".

Gorham noted the name's proliferation: "Phil should've been this guy's publicity agent, as he was cropping up everywhere! At every soundcheck, he'd be playing that funky riff… Once we'd found that riff, we just went for it.

The whole thing really took off when Brian Downey sat down and put his personal funk take on it with the drums… And these characters — Johnny the Fox and Jimmy the Weed — they were real people. They were from the Manchester area, where Phil's mom had her hotel… They were part of a gang of cultured thieves… They weren't drug dealers, like it says in the lyrics for the song… But they were pretty heavy guys, yet they were real funny, so you couldn't help but like them.

Phil Collins of Genesis was brought in to contribute some percussion to one or more tracks, seemingly because he was a friend of Lynott's.

Robertson later said, "Collins was just a mate of Phil's I think Phil probably just wanted to get him on the album to name-drop. Irish musician Fiachra Trench provided string arrangements, for example on "Sweet Marie", on which he used one bank of violins and two viola sections. Again, none of the band members could recall which song s Beacon appeared on.

Robertson claimed that Beacon was only used because Frankie Miller was unavailable. Thin Lizzy used their usual cover artist, Jim Fitzpatrick , to design the sleeve for Johnny the Fox , but he was asked to provide the finished design before the album was given a title.
