ⓘ Yellow Pearl (album)

Yellow Pearl is a compilation album of songs recorded by Irish rock musician Phil Lynott; the only such compilation as of 2016. The album, released in 2010, features songs taken from Lynotts two solo albums, Solo in Soho and The Philip Lynott Album, together with rare singles, remixes and b-sides.

Many members of Lynotts band Thin Lizzy appear on the album including Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Snowy White, Darren Wharton and Gary Moore. Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler plays on two tracks.

The title track "Yellow Pearl" is included in two remixed versions – this song had been used as the theme tune for the British TV programme Top of the Pops. Two rare b-sides, "Somebody Elses Dream" from the "Together" single and "Beat of the Drum" from "Old Town" were released here for the first time on CD. Lynotts hit single with Gary Moore, "Parisienne Walkways", and his last single release, "Nineteen", were also featured.

The CD came with a booklet featuring photos and an essay by Malcolm Dome.
