Notes:
Sad Wings of Destiny is the second album by Judas Priest, released in 1976.

The cover art for the album, titled Fallen Angels, was illustrated by Patrick Woodroffe. It is best known for introducing the pitchfork-like symbol known as the "Judas Priest Cross," as worn by the angel.

Sad Wings of Destiny was Judas Priest's second and final studio record made while under contract with Gull Records, an independent UK company. Despite critical acclaim, the band was struggling financially due to lack of support from the label. Shortly after changing management, the band severed their ties with Gull and signed with Columbia Records. Consequently, Judas Priest lost all rights to the recordings on their first two albums and to all demo recordings made during the sessions while under contract with Gull.Sad Wings of Destiny was initially published and distributed by Janus Records in the United States.

Whilst the band lost the rights to recording royalties, they obtained copyright ownership of the songs themselves, many of which became staples for their live shows. "Victim of Changes", "The Ripper", "Tyrant" and "Genocide" appear on Judas Priest Unleashed in the East, a live album released by CBS in 1979. "Diamonds and Rust", a Joan Baez song originally recorded for Sad Wings, but left off of the final album, was re-recorded for Sin After Sin, their first CBS release, and also on Unleashed. Gull later released the band's original recording of "Diamonds and Rust" on a 'best of' album.

I ordered this version of the CD on discogs but the inserts all say 1983. Also the dynamic range database mentions a 1983 CD reissue. There is no entry for a CD repress in 1983 on discogs that i can see.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS CD PRESSING! I cannot stress this enough!
I bought this, Rocka Rolla, and Hero,Hero in the triple pack, and I don't own any of those CDs anymore, they just sounded awful. Allow me to explain:
The Koch CD is clearly mastered off of a high generation clone tape, probably for a US vinyl release, possibly the same as the old Attic CD, but possibly some other duplicate.
If you don't see how that would be too bad, then I can explain pretty easily. Essentially, this CD sounds like garbage. It's not COMPLETELY destroyed, someone with utterly untrained ears or very low end equipment might not notice the problems as much, but they are still big ugly problems.
This CD has so much nasty flabby overboosted bass extending up into the midbass range from down to the sub range. It sounds like someone used a Sony Walkman with the "MegaBASS" switch on to transfer the tape. There's noticeable distortion on the midrange, and treble is inarticulate. The stereo image is also pretty squashed. Heavy EQ might help some, but it won't make this much punchier or cleaner sounding.
Get the RCA CD instead. Or any other pre 2000s CD version frankly.

Exceptional sound quality. This fairly inexpensive, semi common CD pressing is the way to go! The Line Records CD has a flipped stereo image, the Attic version is often highly regarded, but upon comparison with this RCA release, the Attic CD has noticeable analog distortion and a somewhat gnarly midrange that this RCA CD does not.

Expect a slight v shape, with crisp cymbals, powerful bass, and dynamic, spacious reproduction.

AVOID the Koch release at all costs, and shoot for this CD instead.

This is a phenomenal album, and the first truly great Judas Priest LP. The music is lovely, and varied enough to be interesting. This is not an attempt to be radio friendly or over the top extreme, just a lovely gothic tinged early metal and progressive rock album.

Sad Wings of Destiny is the second album by the English heavy metal group Judas Priest, released in 1976. It is considered the album on which Judas Priest consolidated their sound and image, and songs from it such as "Victim of Changes" and "The Ripper" have since become live standards. It is the only album to feature drummer Alan Moore.
Noted for its riff-driven heavy metal sound and the wide range of Rob Halford's vocals, the album displays a wide variety of styles, moods, and textures, inspired by an array of groups such as Queen, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath. The centrepiece "Victim of Changes" is an eight-minute track featuring heavy riffing trading off with high-pitched vocals, extended guitar leads, and a slow, moody breakdown toward the end. "Tyrant" and "The Ripper" are short, dense, high-powered rockers with many parts and changes. Riffs and solos dominate "Genocide", "Island of Domination", and "Deceiver", and the band finds more laid-back moments in the crooning piano-backed "Epitaph" and the moody "Dreamer Deceiver".
Sad Wings of Destiny had a positive reception but weak sales as it was released just as punk rock was dominating the spotlight in the UK. The band recorded their first two albums with the independent Gull label under tight budgets; after living off a single meal per day while working side jobs to support themselves, the group grew frustrated with the financial situation and signed with CBS Records for their next album, Sin After Sin (1977). Breaking their contract resulted in the rights to Sad Wings of Destiny and its demo recordings falling into Gull's hands.
