Sanctuary – Into the Mirror Live/Black Reflections (1990)

with 3 comments

I scored this CD around 1998 when i was starting to purge my record collection.  I traded a Mercyful Fate Melissa 12″ picture disc for it to some dude in Canada.  In 1999 I went to Richmond, VA to see Nevermore and did an interview with Warrell Dane.  I asked him about this ep and he stated that about 1000 were made and only about 500 actually got released to record stores and radio stations as a promo.  The others were destroyed when CBS dropped Sanctuary from their label.  He did say, however, that he still had the master reels from this recording and wanted to put the whole show out officially.  Obviously 11 years later I don’t think it’s going to happen.  What a pity.  This is a great recording although I wish White Rabbit would have been left out.

  2. I did an interview with Sanctuary for ROKKIN Productions in Atlanta, GA back when they were Co-Headling with Fates Warning. Really nice guys, a lot of fun to hang out with. I dig “Black Reflections”, it is a particularly good live recording, in my opinion. I also dig the “White Rabbit” cover. I have covered it a few times since and I tend to do the “Wally” version of it, rather than Jefferson Airplanes version. And of course, I LOVE Nevermore! \m/

  3. anybody heard Warrell’s latest solo release?

    *that dude had the longest hair in metal I think when they arrived on the scene in the late 80’s! it looked more like a horses mane…

    great singer…

    I am sure everyones heard the crazy story of how they (SANCTUARY) were “discovered” by Dave Mustaine?

    if not, stay tuned for a future post in Demolish Mag. for the scoop as told by Lenny Rutledge.
