Dedication: The Very Best of Thin Lizzy is a compilation album released by rock group Thin Lizzy in 1991. The only previously unreleased track was "Dedication", which was reconstructed after Phil Lynott's death using an old 8 track demo recording of the song (originally recorded around 1985) to provide the bass and vocal lines, with new guitar and drum parts added by Scott Gorham and Brian Downey.

There was also a VHS video release to accompany the album.
