magnificent bootleg release!digital copy professionally transferred from the LP and 7 & 12 format.almost all A/B sides from the 1982 session are present here ,except for "walking out on you live" and "bright lights live" from the "life on the run double 7 inch",both tracks are added as additional bonus (for cd time restictions) on "don't get mad get even bootleg cd
https://www.discogs.com/it/Samson-Dont-Get-Mad-Get-Even/release/9284493 " .The artwork is perfect and includes a booklet with liner notes and interviews. this version could be a 2015 or 2016 reissue of this https://www.discogs.com/it/Samson-Before-The-Storm/release/9284488 but now the picture cd isn't coloured but a black n white reproduction

i don't know if really "paul samson" has digitally transferred the album,but this release is full of error and i can't understand what kind of master tape he used:the speed of the tracks in uncorrect,especially for the bonus tracks (and the last two are singles from "don't get mad get even" era)"i'll be round" seems to be transferred from an old tape (it starts with a strange fade-in and a lot of noise),"danger zone's "intro is longer and is differently mixed, "test of time " is in mono (with a slightly different mix,so i can surely say that this tracks is the demo versions published some year before (with better quality) on samson's "test of time" cd.This release has only 2 interesting thing:
1) "red skies":this is not the original album version but the extended A'side from the self titled 12'' single.
2),"riding with the angels" has a different mix from the original 1984's b'side of "the fight goes on 7 & 12 inch single" and has a completely different conclusion.
item to avoid absolutely,that's an unofficial officialized release.the new zealand bootleg edition sound much better and includes all (and more) the rights tracks as bonus
