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.

Great sounding record, I can hear all instruments with so much detail, real enjoyment for listening of this Judas Priest masterpiece. I haven't listened original, but look no further, you'll be satisfied with this one!

Back on Black sounds very good!!
But I can't stand to hear "prelude" on A side and "tyrant " on B side. This is something I can't understand why they made like this!!!
A big drawback to me !!!

i did not need another copy of this as the best copy of this i have had for decades and that is the ORIGINAL japan pressing of this lp from 1977, regardless i also have a few other pressings and this was not on my rsd list HOWEVER i was really taken in by the gatefold sleeve, and i kept reading how great this 2 lp set sounded especially for color vinyl so yeah I DID IT AGAIN & NOW HAVE LIKE 5 DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THIS but ive been a priest fan since 1978, im old so what the hell, anyway lovely thick gatefold embossed sleeve and the discs do indeed sound great!, like i always say the best years for priest where from 1974 to 1984.... but once they started screwing with drum machines on turbo they just never captured that magic they had on all records from the 70s and ( with the exception of point of entry in 1981) all those records from rocka rolla through defenders just had that amazing sound!!!!!!! anyway yeah this is a beautiful copy.

I think this sounds pretty great. The packaging is top notch and record sounds very good minus a little crackle in the quiet parts but not bad at all. Definitely needs a thorough cleaning as another reviewer said.

I have multiple versions of this album including a Japanese original white label promo. This is not a bad cut at all. No clipping or distortions and a strong low end. Even some imaging here and there. It has a nice "drive" overall and doesn't feel thin. The drawback is you will need to deep clean both LP's because the inner sleeves stick to the records and despite a dry vac, my stylus picked up an insane amount of paper from just one run through the first LP. A scrub and vac went a long way to quieting both LP's down. I would also recommend removing the shrink because it will likely contribute to warping over time in the gatefold. Thankfully mine are both sufficiently flat.

IMO this 45 rpm reissue is not a total disappointment. I like the sound, but the built-in higher cost turns people off -- particularly if one does not care for embossed cover art, or mildly ugly vinyl color choices. Worse, it appears there were quality control problems with the pressing (some batches of warped copies, and oddly mixed blue/black colors). But nowhere does it say that this reissue is remastered from the original tapes. So, the original bass heavy sound remains (so what!!) -- same as my totally worn out 1976 Janus copy. The 2015 Repertoire Records pressing is excellent, and I don't even know if they used the original analog tapes (?) Despite the 45 rpm press here, this is not an audiophile's treasure, but a hardcore fan's somewhat overpriced limited edition. It's easy to rag on Koch Records but not ALL of their pressings are awful. The 2008 black vinyl 180-gram Sad Wings sounds better than my original Janus copy ever did.

referencing Sad Wings Of Destiny, 2x12", Album, Ltd, RE, Bla, EOM-LP-46312
And sadly another Czech under par GZ production - if you want a reissue that actually SOUNDS good then look for the 2015 from Repertoire instead. It is pressed by Pallas Plant and smokes this one. Wonderful sleeve but as always with GZ no effort is made to deliver a quality pressing.
