Beautiful presentation, great material quality, excellent sound remastered and features the early version od Diamond And Rust previously avaliable only in the Hero Hero release and in some re-presses of Rocka Rols in CD. But, it features the same problem as the Back On Black versions of Sad Wings of Destiny: It does not respect the original cut of the vinyl sides which, for this album, mark the end of side A with Cheater and the beginning of side B with Never Satisfied while this press ends the side A with Never Satisfied and opens the B side with Run Of The Mill. Fortunately, Never Satisfied and Run Of The Mill are originally totally separated songs then the problem is only related to the mistake of not following the original cut. Anyway, a mistake that should not be there...

this is a very nice reissue of this debut classic by judas priest that to this day over 40 years later is still a very underrated record, this was recorded in 1974 and this was done at a time when priest did not seem to have there image straight as if you look at photos from this era or watch that top of the pops video from 1975 they dressed more like it was 1966 or 67 then 1975, anyway the music on here is great, this is PRE METAL GOD priest but very well done, not as heavy as what would come by 1977 with sin after sin but still i dare to say this record is almost as good as sad wings of destiny, this is a nice gatefold reissue on pure white vinyl and it looks great, im very pleased to have this for my priest collection as ive been a priest fan since 1978 now, anyway wonderful sleeve, lyrics inside the gatefold and once again awesome white vinyl, i have a number of copies of this record and to this day my favorite copy is the original japanese 1977 pressing of this as the obi strip on that blends right into the lp artwork same as sad wings does, anyway this to is a VERY NICE COPY OF THIS RECORD
