Smoke on the water.
Nothing wrong with that, especially when it was really good and no-one really noticed the first time around ...
Self-borrowing is nothing new btw - Vivaldi was already at it in the 17th century (and he was a lot less subtle with it).
I agree there is nothing wrong with self-borrowing.
Nothing wrong with it when the material was never released before. White Spirit ended soon after this demo anyway, and he joined Gillan.

The "nice" end of early '80s Saturday morning TV!

A different look for Janick, during his Gillan days:-
Maybe he had a sideline in panto, playing Aladdin?
He hasn't changed much.
No he hasn't and it's a good thing!
Been a while since he was last seen in fuchsia velvet pyjamas though, I think ...
i like Midnight Chaser
i hear it to relax
I think the jam during the last minute sounds strongly inspired by UFO's Rock Bottom - notice the choice of the notes that are left hanging at the end of each lick/phrase. Very similar feel, without any direct copying.
Nice pics, Black Abyss Babe
Here is a very rare White Spirit picture feat. bassist Peter Flint.
He was with the band from 1977 to 1978. About this time they added the Hammond organ to the lineup.
