Chastain - Mystery of Illusion - 1985 Shrapnel Records

Found this Lp in a used bin this past weekend. I always dismissed Chastain because I thought he was another Yngwie style wanker, but having listened to this record a few times now I must admit that this is much better than I had anticipated and Leather is a ripping vocalist...Dave G.

Thanks for the support on this one Erich. It's nice to know I am not alone in liking this record. It's Funny how I can ignore record's based on false impressions from my teen years and then some 20+ years later actually open up my ears and listen and realize I was completely wrong. Another case in point is Cirith Ungol.

Hey, that happens to me all the time. I think it's a good sign actually, meaning we're not that stubborn after all. :-) Plus it's just about the best thing I can imagine.
