    Thanks to the original uploader

    In 1982, a young Swede named Yngwie Malmsteen sent a demo tape to Mike Varney, who had a column in Guitar Player magazine and also owned a record label called Shrapnel Music. The rest, as they say, is history."

    This is the demo tape Yngwie sent to Mike Varney for inclusion in his Guitar Player Magazine "Spotlight" column. He was 19 when he sent it, it appeared in the February 1983 issue. All compositions, lyrics, and arrangements by Yngwie J. Malmsteen.

    Varney was so impressed that not only did he write Malmsteen up in his “Spotlight” column, he invited the virtuoso to California to begin recording a solo album — a plan that was derailed when Yngwie received an offer to join the Ron Keel-fronted band, Steeler, also on the Shrapnel Music label. The music was for the most part forgettable, but it served as a much needed “foot in the door” for the young axe-man.

    Feeling stifled by the Steeler experience, Malmsteen then joined forces with former Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnett to form a new band called Alcatrazz. This time he had the opportunity to write all the music, and by the end of 1983, Alcatrazz had released No Parole for Rock & Roll and Live Sentence. Not content to serve as a hired gun, Yngwie left Alcatrazz and embarked on a solo career...

    I have this on tape from 82 as the Rising Force Demo - the order is different, and , I think, my tape has a song Voodoo Nights that's not on here, but the solo track is missing, and Dead Song is titled 2nd Departure

    here's my rip

    I also have 78 Demo Powerhouse The Magic Sessions (edit- I see you posted this here already) and the 80 Demo Birth of the Sun , but don't have the 81 demo (as listed at MA)
