Schizoid: I love the Down To Earth album,have no problem with his voice(studio),it a great disc and Blackmores playing quite stunning at times,i just feel the live recording on MOR was woeful and Bonnet struggled with the song,Its a Dio classic and should have been left alone.

Oh ok, we'll agree to differ on that, I thought it was a good effort! I wasn't at the gig myself, but remember people who were there (and reveiws at the time) saying Rainbow were on fire that day.

Guess I must live in my own bubble as I have never heard of/seen any of the sampler albums referred to on this thread.

Totally agree. The sound is 'warmer' and my system still works extremely well.

I have these records in my collection. And no, none of my records are for sale. Gonna use them for my cremation LOL!

SP Crowley mentions Metal for Muthas - yes I have this one as well. Am now feeling very nostalgic & can't wait to dust off the turntable!

Sorry Schizoid Mark, but on reflection I dont think there is bad track on either side of vol 1 - not got vol 2 so cant say, but Rush is a red flag for me...

Dear Mr.BOF, the musical interlude that we would be enjoying (very thoroughly) would be the advent of a New Wave of British Heavy Metal NWOBHM (these were the days BEFORE 3 letter acronyms, & zit cream). I was 15-16 when these were out, and these cheap K-Tel compilations celebrated Rock artists that since have become legends. Motorhead, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Def Leppard, Michael Schenker, . Mixed up with some oldies (at the time) like Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Rush, UFO. At that time this music was not radio friendly and seemingly unpopular, until you went to gigs with 20,000 others. Today the more liberal and enlightened world has room for Kerrang Radio, Planet Rock and XFM. We don't see any New Romantic TV/Radio channels which dominated that era. Just watch "Flight 666" a Rock-u-mentary about Iron Maiden Airways gigging the world in a jet flown by the lead singer, to see the world wide interest. Even if you loathe the music, it is a very interesting concept.

I've got both Axe Attack albums, both are pristine vinyl and will hopefully be worth something when they get passed on to the kids. As for the music, I play the albums regularly and they both have some brilliant moments, though Frank Marino is always a bit of a challenge.

The modern rock scene leaves me a bit cold (I'm 47 to answer the other question) , but I've seen Shinedown several times now and they blow me away like nothing else out there. Check em!!

I have both of these albums and if you want a good idea as to the state of heavy rock in the early 80s they are essential.

Remember it well. I had it (Vol 1) when I was a kid and it is what got me into rock and metal in a big way. I'm 39 by the way. As to the vinyl old stuff does sound better on vinyl but some newer releases I've heard are better on cd, both compared on a decent seperates hi-fi. Its the way the actual mastering is done.

Anyone else have Lead Weight? It was released by Neat Records and, for me anyway, had the best collection of NWOBHM out there. I still listen to it regularly here in the 21st century. Ain't got the long hair anymore though...

I have re-bought Axe Attack Vol 1 on vinyl recently, having owned it when it first came out. Just brings back the happiest memories - not just the individual songs but the order in which they are listed. For a long time I listened to the individual tracks on their parent albums and was really pissed off when they weren't followed by their Axe Attack companions.

i used to have killer watts, precious metal and brute force compilations. if you google Hear Rock City and go to various , then you will find loads of old nwobhm compliations including axe attack 2 for free downloading.

in fact pretty much all the cds mentioned on here are available to download from the site i mentioned ...also the sounds/cbs heavy metal compilation (remember that one) is there too.

Great to stumble on a discussion on these two iconic compilations from my youth (I'm 47). My music taste blossomed after borrowing these to albums. Arguably all my favourite bands are found on these two albums. Not sure about the comments about the Scorpions being generally awful?? A matter of taste obviously because I think they've always been amazing. But these albums were the perfect introduction to my favourite music.

idling thru' this thread, and was amused to see mention of 'metal for muthas'. i was working in a killie record shop when this came out, and i still remember the hysterics we had after a happy teenager left the shop with his copy of (as asked for) 'metal for mewthass'. :)

Yes, guilty to owning both, although this was better - New Wave of British Metal '79 Revisited. Still have them all too!

Amazing to see this old un back up and running!!! And I do agree with the comments on here, Modern Metal is pretty dire!
