Despite the band's image, that they were often lampooned for even during the era (no thanks to Metallica's home video of the "Black Album"'s recording process), Winger has always been a band of phenominal musical talent. The band has quite an impressive catalog in their brief early career in the late 80's and early 90's.

Yet Kip and company still managed to continue on in solo projects or in other bands. Till the band could no longer deny the demand for their products anymore. Thanks in part to Poison's annual summer tours with the best names in the genre, Winger was finally back in gear in 2001 with their "Very Best of" collection featuring a new track. Touring followed the next year w/ Poison and not too long afterwards, Kip was touring more often solo and his solo work was finally starting to get it's due.

The band has always impressed me live and in the studio. What's really nice about this collection is the closeness to the more familiar versions we've been listening to for the past 20 years. Yet these demos have a freshness and a raw energy component that some of the finished versions lack a bit. Overall, there's about an album's length worth of unreleased material on here that's worth the purchase alone. A must for any diehard Winger fan.

Too bad there wasn't any demos of "IV" on here but yet due to time constraints and the fact that the album is pretty much recorded as is in the studio (*see the limited edition DVD "Making of Winger IV" to see the song writting process) Some of the "new" material will have a immediate reaction for they are the core of the final songs on the albums. Others were totally unreleased gems that can still hold a candle to anything out there today!

"Demo Anthology", as the title suggests, is a collection of demos by the highly acclaimed US hard rock/glam metal group "Winger" originally released in 2007. This release is a 2CD set featuring a total of 37 demo songs recorded during the late 80s in between their three classic albums ("Winger", "II" and "Pull"); so you can expect demo versions of songs from all three album plus a total of ten previously unreleased song.

Considering the time these tapes were produced, the demos are of high stereo quality and make for an enjoyable two CD set for any fan of the band or 80s hard rock in general. So what sets these demos apart from the official versions? Well as bassist/vocalist Kip Winger explains on the back sleeve notes, the majority of these demos, if not all, were recorded solely by lead guitarist Reb Beach and himself where the two musicians would play their respective instruments while drums were programmed on a drum machine. In addition the presence of keyboards is somewhat reduced in comparison to the official versions.

On the other hand, one finds the guitar to be the protagonist instrument on these recordings, making the demos sound much heavier than the official material. In addition Kip's vocals come out in a more forceful manner delivering more hard rock attack while remaining technically impeccable.

Overall "Winger-the demo anthology" is a complete as it gets package featuring 37 tracks including 10 previously unheard songs. So the release serves both as a fan item as well as an introduction to those new to the music of "Winger".

I've been a Winger fan since I as the debut of the video for "Seventeen" on Headbangers Ball. What struck me was how original and fresh Reb Beach was, and how great the songs sounded. I continued to follow them throughout their history, even when it was no longer considered cool to do so. I only saw them live twice: once in '90 at the Broward Co St Fair in Florida for the ITHOTY tour( Reb slipped and fell straight down onto his butt... It was funny and even he had a good laugh!), and one in Indy at the Vogue (a small club that seats about 1,000) on the Pull Tour. It was ram packed though, and I was naturally right in front of Reb.

Buy this time, their popularity was fading rapidly thanks to Nirvana. I spoke with Reb one on one at length after show.Those who know me can verify that I know how to connect with musicians. I am a musician, so that helps. But I also never show that I might be 'star struck" which is key. In addition to that, I know how the industry works (especially during the good old days). They pick up on this vibe right away, as Reb did. He realized that I didn't want anything from him except to let him know my appreciation for his style, and that I understood how he must feel about the current situation.

After we were done with our guitar/gear/songwriting talk, he "loosened up" and started to really get chatty. Being that it was just the two of us probably helped a bunch. He was clearly disappointed with how things did a total 180 so quickly. He was particularly upset with MTV, who at one point "couldn't get enuff of Winger" but now treated them as though they were nothing. He sited that once Bevis and Butthead poked fun at the band, and Grunge hit the airwaves, things turned sour rapidly.
