    Artist: Stratagy
    Release: 2 nd demo,1983(tracks) + 1 track of 1 st demo
    Genre: NWOBHM / AOR / Progressive Rock / Hard Rock
    Country: UK
    Bitrate: vbr180
    ►Link : Hidden Link

    Unfortunately there is not much information and photos about the Stratagy band (which Jackie Bodimead was part of) ,but as far as I know,they made two demos (of which I do not know the titles).The first demo,I have only 1 song (I do not know if there were more songs in this demo,or if it was just one) ,the second demo of 1983,is complete,this one has 3 songs.The Stratagy made a NWOBHM flirting with AOR,Progressive Rock and Hard Rock.

    First Stratagy demo featuring Jon Barry (Guitars) ,Jackie Bodimead (vocals) ,Nigel Minns and Gary Wise [Track 04]

    Second demo of Stratagy (1983) featuring Jon Barry (Guitars) ,Jackie Bodimead (Vocals) ,Gary Wise (Drums) and Terry Horbury (Bass Guitar,R.I.P.) [Tracks 01,02,03]

    Do not confuse with other bands that also had the name similar to Stratagy...

    Strategy (UK)-Technical Overflow (EP 7",1982)
    Strategy (Edinburgh,UK)-Second Move (EP Cassete,1987)
    Strategy ( ? )-Demo 1991 (with 4 songs)

    All these bands had the name of Strategy (except Stratagy) ,but they are bands different from each other.

    My sincere thanks to Jon Barry, thank you very much for putting such rare songs at our disposal,a big fan of Jackie Bodimead thanks,thank you so much Jon :-)

    Note : The band STRATAGY (of which Jackie Bodimead was part) has a different name from the others,who used the conventional name STRATEGY,while Jackie's band used STRATAGY,with this small change of lyric.(I later discovered that and corrected the name of the band).

    Well, now I was confused as to the right name, because one of the members of the band told me that it was Strategy, but it seems that the real name was Stratagy, well, anyway, thanks for the information and the photo, I'll see if I correct it and I put the name right then.

    In any thread, you can post a re-upload download link in the comment section.
    After you copy and paste the link, highlight and click the eyeball button / icon,
    Or click the eye first and paste the link inside.

    Some think it is a pain in the ass to hide download links.
    It is a small detail that could prevent the website being shut down for legal reasons in the future.

    Thanks again for the share Valério Riberto, it turned out to be a much better listen than i'd expected from your description.
    Wasn't expecting 'Chevrolet' to be a cover of the old ZZ Top number either, that was a pleasant surprise & it's quite a good version too.
    I reckon this version by Stray Dog has the edge though:

    Can anyone reupload it on another file hosting service? I downloaded it several times, but file is corrupt. I wrote about it to author of this topic, but he don't answer.

    What exactly is corrupt about it?
    Nobody else has had a problem with it.
    Why re-upload it if we also have the same "corrupt" file?
    Please make re-upload requests in the proper REQUEST section from now on, NOT in the original topic, if you don't want to be penalized.
