    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.

    It's fun to hear Janick do a solo over the chord progression in "'Till the Kill" as he doesn't have a solo in The Mercenary.

    Is that first one No.73? Very mainstream show.

    @Brigantium Both clips are from No 73 and I've since discovered this one as well:

    (Since non of their gear has moved I'm assuming it's all from the same episode)

    Maybe he had a sideline in panto, playing Aladdin?

    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 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.
