5.0 out of 5 stars one of saxons best albums, 28 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Denim and Leather (Audio CD)
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great to have most of this show on cd, 28 Aug 2009

This review is from: Headstone (Audio CD)
its great after all these years to finally have this release done in the proper fashion but sadley this is still not the whole show, we are still missing 6 tracks from the original hammersmith 83 show, it is great to have blinded by a lie, the amazing 10 minute version of mystery train on here and also i think on here lonely heart is one of the best live versions ive ever heard, this live disc is a must for any chapman era ufo fan, i just wish this cd set came with the complete show, this only came out once on cd back in 1991 in japan but it was the same track listing as the original 83 viynl lp so this is a much better version then that one, like i said i would give this 5 stars hands down but it is not the whole show!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great box set, 28 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great killer box set of the best mastering of all these shows that have been on the bootleg circut for years now, all these recordings are soundboard and sound fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! the best part is you get a mix of the best of the schenker era in the 70s and the tonka era in the early 80s, all these shows are perfect for the ufo completest!!!!!!!! this also comes with a great booklet with a lot of photos and information........

5.0 out of 5 stars great classic, 13 Jun 2009

This review is from: Message to the World (Audio CD)
great classic by jesse hector, i loved the whole pub rock scene in the uk going on in the mid to late 70s, we saw eddie and the hot rods, dr feelgood and the pirates get back together during this period. jesse pulled a real good one of with this record and it has a bit of a raw punk edge to it considering this was recorded in late 77 and early 78................

This review is from: Power & The Glory (Audio CD)
wow really nice remastered edition with great liner notes and great bonus tracks, i cant belive its been almost 27 years since this classic album first came out. this may have been saxons last incredible album of the 80s but the follow up in 1984 crusader was just about as good i think, after 84 saxon where going for more of a us radio friendly sound wich did not do them all that well till solid ball or rock in 1991...........

4.0 out of 5 stars great autobigraphy, 13 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a great autobigraphy by biff byford from saxon, this deals a lot with his childhood, his life both before and during saxon so just so you know in advance this book is not a book about saxon its about mr byford, i actually really enjoyed it and found it to be an interesting read. now i am waiting for the book and bio on saxon and there 30 years of making albums and touring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

decent song by the legendary saxon in 2007, the album this is from (inner sanctum) is a very good saxon record but this song is not my favorite, i just bought the single for my HUGE saxon collection...............

great collection of good pyche from the wooden hill label, i love british freakbeat and pyche from the mid 60s to early 70s and if you liked any of the other wooden hill releases you should love this one, the sound is awsome.......

5.0 out of 5 stars classic from 1984, 14 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crusader (Audio CD)
FINALLY the saxon catlog from the 80s is being done the right way, crusader took saxon to another level wich did not disapoint many fans, now 25 years later this is considered a classic metal album all over the world, my only problem in 1984 with this record was the same problem i have with it in 2009, i thought and still think just let me rock was the worst saxon song ever and the video for it was just as bad, great bonus tracks here and great booklet!!!!!!!!!!! a must for any saxon fan
