On a personal note, I'm looking forward to this release because producer Tom Allom remastered this reissue. He produced several Priest albums, from 'Unleashed...' to 'Ram it Down.' Producer Jon Astley, on the other hand, just about ruined the Priest catalog during the remastering craze in 2001. Most Astley-remastered reissues are horrible -- the low end is over-emphasized, and the overall recording level is intensified so that the remastered albums sound distorted, bloated, and just downright shitty. Priest albums on CD prior to the 2001 remasters sound great, in large part due to Mr. Tom Allom ('British Steel' comes to mind). Hopefully he does not subscribe to the 'excessive bass is better and excessive volume is great' philosophy many producers and recording engineers of Heavy Metal albums seem to have embraced over the past twenty-some-odd years.

The very first Priest song I ever heard was Free wheel burning! I had taped it overnight, there was an old video show from the radio station 92 citi fm. When I saw it I was mesmerized! Been a Priest fan ever since, that had to be over 20 years ago. Still love 'em!
