The Remedy = 3 CD Box = (CD)
UK three CD set. The late 1970s and early 1980s was a time when the burgeoning New Wave Of British Heavy Metal - or NWOBHM - was raging and rocking across the UK, and from this scene came the likes of Iron Maiden from East London, Saxon from Barnsley, Def Leppard from Sheffield and Diamond Head from Stourbridge. Flying the NWOBHM banner well into the '80s, Londoners Elixir formed in 1983 around the line-up of Steve Bentley, Kevin Dobbs, Nigel Dobbs and Phil Denton. Paul Taylor completed the line-up in 1984, but shortly after Taylor's arrival, Bentley left and was replaced by Stormin' Norman Gordon. Having released their first single 'Treachery (Ride Like The Wind)' in 1985, followed by debut LP The Son of Odin in 1986, by 1988 Elixir had recruited bassist Mark White and former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr to record their second LP, Sovereign Remedy, produced by Roland Harris. With an album in the can, but no release date, a frustrated Phil Denton decided to move on, whilst Clive Burr's tenure was brief enough to include just one gig before returning to the newly formed Desperado with Twisted Sister's Dee Snider and former Gillan/Ozzy guitar slinger Bernie Tormé. Elixir's second LP didn't get released until 1990, on the Sonic label, just as the band was winding up. The track order was reconfigured, and a different mix was used. It even sported a new title: Lethal Potion. Now very much a collectors' item and rarity, the original 1990 Lethal Potion album is featured on CD One of this set. By 2004, with the Taylor, Denton, Gordon, Dobbs and Dobbs line-up back together once more, not only did Elixir plan to play more gigs and record and release new music, but also to right what they saw as the wrongs of the past, which included giving the second Elixir album the proper release it deserved. It was finally issued under it's original title Sovereign Remedy on the TPL label, with the original mix and track list and sporting more appropriate cover artwork, and is featured here on CD Two. In 2005, Elixir released the self-explanatory Elixir Live. Featuring many tracks from "Lethal Potion"/"Sovereign Remedy", it demonstrates the power and glory of an Elixir show captured
