Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the British Metal monsters' 1981 album including nine bonus tracks. Denim And Leather, the band's fourth album, was originally released on the Carrere label and catches the band at an early commercial and creative peak, featuring the classic singles 'Princess Of The Night', 'Never Surrender' and their tribute to their appearance at the first Castle Donington Festival, 'And The Bands Played On'. The album now includes the Nigel Thomas remix of '20,000 Ft.', available on CD for the first time, plus the otherwise unavailable 'Bap Shoo Ap' (recorded at the Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980), both of which were originally B-sides of the now highly collectable 'Never Surrender' double seven inch single. Also included are no less than seven live tracks recorded on the 1981 Denim And Leather tour. EMI. 2009.

I first came across this album from a British band about 15 years ago. It blew me away then, it still does. An awesome album. If you only buy one Saxon CD, make it this one. Never Surrender, Denim and Leather, Princess of the Night. Etc. All good songs and will blow the cobwebs out your ears. All up-beat, but not 'samey', each song has its own beat and it's own place on the album. So just let your hair down, lean forward, and press 'play'..

I first bought this album almost thirty years ago but have only recently treated myself to the cd. I love new music, buying 4-5 albums a week so it is unusual for me to revisit past albums. The reason I did was because I was given a USB turntable and started to copy my old albums. The reproduction was disappointing but this album was not. Tracks Princess of the Night are still wonderful and Denim and Leather must remind most of us how we were. Great light metal album, if you have not heard, it buy it.

wow its hard to belive it was 28 years ago already when this classic was released, i think by this period in 1981 saxon where at there prime and they where one of the best metal bands in the world at this point, saxon was right up there with maiden, priest and motorhead, the bonus tracks on here are fantastic as well, i am just now waiting for the last 3 saxon albums from the 80s to come out with bonus tracks and get this treatment, we are still missing innocence ( 85), rock the nations (86) and destiny (88) i know they where not some of saxons most popular albums but ive been a major saxon fan since 81 now and i have every album they ever put out and there is always something special on each one, saxon is my favorite british metal band!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a fantastic Saxon record (which also serves to highlight the disappointing efforts that followed). The preceeding "Strong Arm" & "Wheels Of Steel" albums along with this record, form a trilogy of NWOBHM classics.
The opening track "Princess Of The Night" gets the mood set before we crash into the defiant "Never Surrender" & the lusty "Out Of Control".
There is the "hit" single "And The Bands Played On" (about the Monsters Of Rock festival if memory serves) & finished off with the anthemic, concert sing along "Denim & Leather" (that song meant alot to alienated young rock fans at the time, as I recall).
Their last really decent record & it's a classic !

Simply put this was the third of a trio of classic albums by saxon after the 'wheels' and 'strong arm' discs,at the time they were head and shoulders above any other of the nwobhm bands maiden and lepard included,sadly this wouldnt be sustained.Listening to this remastered cd its apparent that the sound quality is superior to the first 3 remasters and indeed thats true of the 'power' and 'crusader' releases.From the opening riff of Princes of the night this disc transports me back to my teenage years and indeed Denim and Leather's lyrics pretty much sum up my youth,fantastic memories,the original album is class from start to finish and the bonus live tracks highlight why the 'Eagle has landed' should have been a double,play it loud and midnight rider particularly unlucky to have been left off.Saxon were on a roll at this point and this is a perfect example of a great british metal band at the top of their game,buy and enjoy,relive your teenage years,just watch yer neck,too much headbanging can severely curtail your weekend.

This is the second metal album I ever owned, and the first CD I ever got for any kind of music. Every time I hear the opening riff to "Princess of the Night" (an awesome song about-wait for it-steam trains!) I go all misty-eyed and nostalgic when I remember how my dad got it for me in christmas 2001 without even knowing it was metal, when neither of us had heard of the band, but the album name and cover art sort of give it away. Saxon are great at what they do, bringing catchy tunes with ridiculously up-beat lyrics to what is known as the N.W.O.B.H.M. I recommend this if you like AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, or Angelwitch, because as the closing title track correctly points out, "Denim and Leather brought us all together".

There was a time when Biff and the boys were just a bunch of working class blokes from up north. Before the onset in Saxon's lyrical content of grandiose minstral style tales of Great Kings, bold Crusades and exciting space travel etc Biff's feet were more grounded on the rough back streets of Barnsley. The album Denim and Leather (like its predecessor Wheels of Steel) sums this `street level' aggression up perfectly. Here Biff is defiantly `Rough and Ready' tonight, he'll `Never Surrender' when his backs against the wall and he'll `Play it Loud', squaring up to a life guard (presumably at the local outdoor municipal swimming pool and not Saint Tropez) when asked to `turn it down'. This earthy feel runs through most of the cd, whether it's Biff sat by the main railway line watching the mail trains thundering passed (Princess of the Night), posing in his biker leathers on his big bike on the cover pictures or recalling the devoted fans trudging through the ice and snow to get to one of his gigs (Denim and Leather). And although not as slick as Strong Arm Of The Law that followed it, the down to earth no messing about feel to this translates to the music. Evergreen classics such as Princess of The Night, with it's urgent, instantly recognisable, stabbing riff, rub shoulders perfectly with the delightfully throw away Play It Loud and Rough and Ready, the landscaped biographical Midnight Rider, the call to arms of the title track and the all out power surge of Fire in the Sky. This album is hugely enjoyable, assisted by a production job that has a lightness of touch which gives the whole a summery feel good factor.

Is it the best Saxon studio album? I think this accolade goes to Strong Arm Of The Law, but it's better than the flawed almost classic Wheels of Steel that it came after.
