NWOBHM band Nightwings 1985 live album “A Night of Mystery: Alive! Alive!” has a sound that is closer to AOR / Melodic Hard Rock than heavy metal (they had more in common with Asia than Iron Maiden).
Nightwing, which featured future GTR vocalist Max Bacon, was one of the more overlooked bands of the British hard rock scene in the early 1980s. This short (only 8 songs) live album highlights the best songs of the bands catalogue, plus a cover of You Keep Me Hanging On.
The Zoom Club CD reissue doesn’t add any bonus tracks, so clearly the LP is the better or the only real option!
Well worth checking out if you’re a fan of Nightwing or other Max Bacon bands GTR and Bronz.
