First released in 1974, this is the seminal debut album from one of the key founders of Heavy Metal, acknowledged the world over (and pioneers of the that leather-and-studs look, the Metal standard gear, thereafter adopted by numerous past and present copycat bands!). 11 great rockin tracks, now available in our popular Digipak format, together with the single Diamonds And Rust as a bonus track. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected author and journalist Chris Welch. Expertly re-mastered superb sound - top quality reproduction.

Now, they all sound different and of course this is a matter of taste. The Japanese editions have a sort of loud metallic sound. The Vic Anesini remasters sound closest to the original albums. But these Repertoire 2011 editions sound the best to my ears. Especially Rocka Rolla. One of the anoying things about the first 2 albums was not so great production and lame drums. The Rocka Rolla remaster sounds more "heavy". The drums have more of a thud and everything sounds really clear.
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO COLLECTORS IS... This version has the best version of Diamonds and Rust. There are 3 versions of this song. The Sin After Sin version, the Hero, Hero version and the version from the original Gull release of, The Best of JP. We all know the Sin After Sin version. The Hero, Hero version has been called a demo but the difference between the 2 Gull records version is the edit of the harmony guitars after the guitar solo. The original Best of record had the harmony guitars which for some reason is not on the Japanese The Best Of reissue or any other recent reissue exept this Repertoire version. This is IMO the best version of Diamonds and Rust,
grittier and galloping along with the beautiful harmony guitars at the end.
This is overall the best choice for collectors, but again just my opinion.
i only liked half the album i only liked maybe 5 songs,
One for the road, Rocka rolla, Cheater, Never satisfied and Run of the mill
the rest of the album sounded like plain Rock to me it wasn't heavy at all
it sounded like the band were trying to find their Direction but were not sure of the Direction to take
whether just to be a Rock band or a Heavy metal band
the best songs on this album are obviously the Great Hardrock riffs songs
which is only One for the road, Rocka roll, Cheater which is a really Good straight forward rocker track
Never satisfied which is Good and run of the mill which is alright.
but if you want this album then the new 2011 Repertoire reissue it sound's fantastic
plus also has brand new booklet with new Liner notes about the making of their First album, very interesting reading for an Judas priest fan
i only rate this album 3 stars meaning it's an OK first album by Judas priest
in my opinion only 5 Great rockin' tracks.
