    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    Are you aware of this release?

    It was a CD release (so in a way a re-release, maybe not remastered though.).

    I ended up purchasing the 2CD version on eBay.  Was a little pricey though...[hr][/hr]So my White Spirit disc arrived in the mail the other day and I can't believe how good it is.  It sits alongside any of the earlier Maiden albums quite nicely.
     
  3. TheTalisman

    TheTalisman Fågel

    That song and Long Lost Wisdom are the highlights of this demo for me.

    This track has my favourite solo by Janick.

    6:17 sounds like Prowler. ;) Interesting stuff, though.

    :hbd: to my favourite of the Amigos! (It's actually a tie with H.) May he grant us many more examples of his excellent writing.

    Janick has created some great songs recycling his own riffs! :lol:

    Got this album years ago. Great stuff. Massively underrated NWOBHM band.

    I think a couple of these songs may have been posted separately, but here is 23 minutes and 53 seconds in one place, of Gillan live, featuring a young Janick from 1982 :)

    I don't think I ever saw McCoy smile before.

    I once found a Polish website with old family snaps of Janick, and pictures of where he grew up etc

    You probably mean this one: http://bydgoszcz.wyborcza.pl/bydgos...rzysta_Iron_Maiden__bal_sie_burzy___Skad.html (the first photo is a link to the gallery)

    The article is actually pretty insightful. Lots of info about Janick's family and his early life. I'll translate the most interesting bits tomorrow.
