Another Eighth Star Update

There was a short update regarding the release of the Tony Iommi “bootleg” album “8th Star”. It appeared on the official Glenn Hughes website, and it says this..

I had dinner with Tony Iommi on Sunday night. We are pleased to announce that the album which was originally bootlegged (ele tá falando do 8th Star) will be officially released with an extra track called “Time is the Healer”. It has been re mixed and mastered. It will be out on Sanctuary this fall. I will be going to the UK in October to write with Tony for a future project.

While this isn’t new (I reported on this back in January), it’s nice to see it hasn’t been forgotten about. An official statement from Tony Iommi’s camp should be forthcoming soon about a release date, what the actual album name is (8th Star is a fan created name, that didn’t come from Iommi), and more. When there’s more about this, I’ll be sure to post it here. I’ve had this album for years, and I thought it was excellent in bootleg form. I can’t wait to hear a properly cleaned up and released version!
