David Byron - The Early Sessions

David Byron -  The Early Sessions Vol 2

As i promised, here is the second volume of Byron's Lost Songs. It contains the famigerate
Avenue Records part 2 plus others rarities of this great rock'n'roll singer.
This time, for me, the gem is song number 10
(Race with the devil- cover of Band "Gun"): the cover is better than the original without doubt.

02- Natural Born Boogie

04- Bring It On Home To Me
05- Lady D'Albanville
06- Behind A Painted Smile
07- Too Busy Thinking About My Baby
08- I'm Gonna Make You Mine
09- Need Your Love So Bad
10- Race With The Devil
11- Cold Turkey
12- Keep On
From the "Chrysalis Compendium" Demo Tracks":

  2. I already had this nice collection but thank you anyway. It gives an insight of byron's early career and has an interesting interview !

  3. Wow, just found out about this blog today! Amazing, Heep have been MY band since 1987, when a friend passed me tapes of Salisbury and Live in Europe 1979. I'm familiar with great new bands like Black Bonzo and Wicked Minds but I see also many gems in this blog. I'd suggest you also to check out Standarte, italian band on Black Widow records, they did 3 records in the 90's, with heavy Atomic Rooster, Quatermass, etc. influences.
    Thanks anyway!

  4. Thanks for the comment
    Glad you like the blog and thank you for pointing me in the direction of Standarte, I am currently listening to the first album and very good it is too. It has all those influences you mention with just a touch of early marillion thrown in for good measure, a thoroughly good listen and highly recommended
