White Spirit - White Spirit (Japan) (1992) Retail CD
As a young man in the early 80's, who had been schooled on his older brothers record collection with bands such as The Who and Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath et al, there was a genuine excitement when the NWOBHM scene exploded and my "generation" had finally got it's own scene.Although best remembered for giving us (a very much more raw and exciting) Def Leppard and that globe straddling behemoth that is Iron Maiden, the NWOBHM movement threw up a few surprises too. Along with Tygers of Pan Tang, White Spirit were one of the more intelligent and musical bands and this album (in its original formmore…) was on heavy rotation with me and all my mates.Although the vocal performance is not exactly startling, it is the blistering guitar work of a then little known Janick Gers that propels this album. Red Skies features a truly amazing solo, and Fool for the Gods features some fretwork which Richie Blackmore (whose style Gers emulates flawlessly)would have been proud of.Indeed it is fair to say, that in many places, the band do seem to have a purple-ish tinge to them, although this does not spoil things, if anything it enhances the mood. Midnight Chaser has a great driving riff and sets the tone perfectly for the rest of the album.All I can say is, if you were into the whole NWOBHM thing, this is an absolutely essential album and will bring memories flooding back in spades and also serve as a reminder as to just how influential the whole movement was.
