2016 wurde Giles Lavery gefragt, ob er sich durch den Nachlass des 2012 verstorbenen RIOT-Gitarristen / Gründers wühlen möchte, um eine Raritätensammlung zusammenzustellen. Nach einem Jahr intensiver Beschäftigung mit RIOT-Songs- und Demos auf Kassetten, VHS-Kassetten und Tonbändern entstand "Rock World", eine Zusammenstellungvon Songs von bis dato nicht erschienenen Songs und alternativen Versionen legendärer RIOT-Tunes.

Giles Lavery hat das mit so viel Liebe gemacht, dass ein höchst interessantes Konvolut dieser ewig unterschätzten Band herausgekommen ist. Für Fans - und nicht nur diese - dieser legendären, noch immer aktiven und stark abliefernden Band, bietet sich hier eine Reise durch die Anfangsjahre der New Yorker Power/Speed-Metal-Giganten.

Für RIOT-Fans sowieso Pflicht, aber auch für Dudes und Dudettes, die sich für die Entwicklung einer Band, eines Genres interessieren.

 

Hier nun Details zu den Stücken auf dem Album:

"Rockworld Theme"

Rockworld was a music tv show from the late 70's - Riot were approached to compose and
record a track for the main theme, This track is a "Lost" outtake from the early Guy Era!


"Bloodstreets (Alternate Version)"

This alternate version of the classic "Thundersteel" era song has an alternate ending different
from the album version, In this version the chorus repeats in a loop, instead of the guitar solo
ending from the "Thundersteel" album.


"Buried Alive (Tell Tale Heart) (Alternate Version)"

A Different arrangement than the album version - The intro heard on the "Thundersteel" record
was originally intended as the end of the song, but was ultimately moved to the start.


"Runaway (Instrumental Early Idea Demo)"

A fantastic instrumental from Mark Reale ... The musical theme became the basis for the song
"Runaway" which was released on the "Privilege Of Power" album.


"Killer" (Tony Moore Vocals)

This version of "Killer" differs from the version found on "Privilege Of Power" as it features Tony
Moore providing all vocals, instead of the trade off with Joe Lynn Turner.


"Maryanne" (Rough Mix)

Maryanne is a highlight of the "Privilege" record, should have been a single/video ... coulda been
huge! - This rough mix shows the song in a slightly more formative stage


"Medicine Man" (Tony Moore Vocals)
"Magic Maker" (Tony Moore Vocals)
"Faded Hero" (Tony Moore Vocals)

"What could have been" ... These 3 songs are demos recorded for the follow up to "Privilege Of
Power" prior to Tony Moore departing.. the band,
All 3 were recut for the "Nightbreaker" record with Mike Dimeo on vocals... this 3 track demo
gives a glimpse into how things might have turned out
had Tony stayed.


"Sylvia" (Outtake)
"Good Lovin" (Outtake)
"Creep" (Instrumental Outtake)

Three demo tracks that were from the Nightbreaker sessions, None of these made it to the final
release in any of its numerous issues, 'Sylvia' could have made it to the record, it appeared years
later in year 2000 as a bonus track on an unsanctioned live release while 'Good Lovin' shows the
band once again experimenting with brass, finally "Creep" is an instrumental track of which
little is known.


"Instrumental 1994" (Brethren Outtake)

An instrumental outtake from the "Long House" sessions, never was developed any further, but
cool nonetheless.


"Medicine Man" (Tyrant Sessions)
"Magic Maker" (Tyrant Sessions)

These two demos featured Jag Panzer vocalist Harry 'Tyrant' Conklin ... Recorded while the
band were looking for a singer to replace Tony Moore... The Job ultimately went to Mike Dimeo
