Lightbulb Eighth Star

Does anyone know where this album originated from?? I've come across a copy, complete with album artwork, but would love to know the story behind it.

Hi

Thanks for the link, I did try a search for "Eighth Star" but nowt came up. I've also not had much luck tracking down a legit copy, and it's not featured on either Iommi's of Glenn's discographys.

Well it's a bootleg, so it's not going to appear on any official discography

You'll only ever find THE 1996 DEP SESSIONS listed; as this is the official release of the material.

I may be in a minority here, but I much prefer Eighth Star to The Dep Sessions. Jimmy Copley's a great drummer, but the drum sound and style on TDS is just too modern and doesn't fit the material, IMO.

Weissheim's Sig:cheers
John

You are not alone*, Weissheim - musically I also prefer Dave Holland's original drum tracks. But the bootleg is a little noisy, and I would have loved to hear clean versions before they were overdubbed and re-recorded.
And yes, Jimmy Copley IS a great drummer!

Cheers,
Christian

I have just read the above conversation about Eight Star and the Dep Sessions. It is not only the drummers or the mixing that is different. Also the tracklisting is a bit different. I also prefer the original drum sound on Eight Star, it sounds more rock!
