Crazy that i've never really given this a listen front to back.
Yet another Lp for the mental want list.

Probably my favorite JP release. Love the pre-Heavy Metal era melodic bass lines. Unfortunately, I have the alternate version vinyl album cover x(
I can actually play 'Dying to Meet You' on my Flying V; the stock V bridge pup is straight Priest treble-jangle tone.

+1 on the melodic bass lines. Super album. Run of the Mill FTW! Ian Hill and Halford at their best.

Finally got around to spinnin' this. Surprisingly good. All the basic elements that made them world beaters are here already. For a 1973/4 recording, the remaster brings out a richness and depth not often heard with NWOBHM bands. Nice recommend! :)

So classic even my dad likes it, and he normally can't stand Priest, Maiden, etc.

Digital vinyl for the win!!

I was watching this Western with my father. I felt like the metaphor of the ending, the death of the archetypal strong male character, perfectly exemplifies the longing of this Rocka Rolla track.

Thanks for not making me choose between Iron Maiden and priest. Two of my favs back in the day.
