New Elixir 3CD Box Set

Elixir have been busy behind the scenes on a number of projects recently. The first to come to fruition is the re-release of their second album in a lavish 3CD box set through Cherry Red's Hear No Evil label. CD1 is the now rare and discontinued 'Lethal Potion' album. This was Elixir's second album as it was originally released in a diluted and re-mixed form. CD2 is 'Sovereign Remedy' which is the complete second album as the band originally intended it to have been and with it's original title. "I felt that combining the two albums in one package would be interesting to the listener so that they can compare the two different releases" says Elixir's Phil Denton. It is well known that the second album was recorded by a different line-up to all other Elixir albums. Mark White was brought in on bass shortly before recording, whilst former Samson and Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr sat behind the kit. "I thought that the Elixir Live album would be good to complete the set", adds Phil, "as there are a number of songs from the second album played by our best known Denton/Dobbs/Dobbs/ Gordon/Taylor line-up. As this is the line-up that created and was playing these songs live before the second album was recorded, I thought that again it would make for an interesting comparison to the listener". The box set is completed by a poster featuring many unseen photos on one side and the story of the making of the albums by NWOBHM expert John Tucker. The set is released on July 26th 2019, and can be pre-ordered by clicking on the link here.
