This 2004 release is a remastered-and-expanded edition of Girlschool's third album, originally released in 1982. Enid Williams, co-writer, bassist and one of the vocalists, had recently left (of her own volition)and Gil Weston was in. On the headlining tour supporting the album, Girlschool's standing was such that they could now play London's prestigious Hammersmith Odeon and similar UK venues: arguably, it was the band's high-water mark in commercial terms.

Contrary to what some online retail sites are saying, this is NOT the first time on CD for the album, as it was on a now-deleted 2-on-1 CD, coupled with 'Play Dirty'. However, this new release is the one to have. As well as the ten album tracks we get a B-side ('Don't Stop'), which has previously been available on CD, and ten tracks recorded for BBC Radio's 'In Concert' programme, which get their first release here. Girlschool then, as now, are a terrific live act and this BBC recording is a welcome addition to my collection. The studio album I rate as 4-stars, as it doesn't, for me, as often hit the highs of the first two albums. However, the bonus tracks turn this particular release into a 5-star effort. If you own the previous CD release, I would suggest replacing/ upgrading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Girlschool - 'Screaming Blue Murder' (Castle Music) 4 1/2 stars 4 May 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1982, as 'Screaming Blue Murder' was the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal's (only?) all-female band's third record. Very nice job on the CD reissue. I wondered as to WHY I've never seen this title in stores before, apparently this is it's first pressing on compact disc. You get the album's original ten rockers, like "Live With Me", the ass-kicking "Don't Call It Love", "Hellrazor" and "Flesh & Blood" plus eleven( 11) bonus tracks tagged on from a 1982 BBC Radio One In Concert shindig. I mean, come on! Who could possibly resist? A must-have.

4.0 out of 5 stars The true definition of "Girl Power" 2 Jan. 2010
By Tom P. the Underground Navigator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By 1982, the NWOBHM, while on the decline, still had some life left in it. One release to really keep the feeling of the original era alive was Girlschool's third LP "Screaming Blue Murder."

On the previous release "Hit and Run," the band went toe to toe with the best of the competition the boys had to offer, in the form of several scorcher speed metal compositions. Reflecting that in 1982 several key NWOBHM bands were starting to go toward a more commercial sound, "Screaming Blue Murder" sees the members of Girlschool going in a slightly more rockish direction than its predecessor. Therefore, the emphasis here is more on catchiness and hooks than on visceral speed. This hardly proves to be a liability, as the energy level remains just as high as before, making for a truly fun and memorable album. Every single track is strong, but if I had to name standouts they would be "Live With Me," "Hellrazor" and "You Got Me." This is great music to lift your spirits when you're down in the dumps. New bassist Gil Weston proves to be a more than accomplished replacement for the departed Enid Williams. Finally, I have to say that all these girls look totally hot on the album's cover, with frontwoman Kelly Johnson exuding just as much sex appeal as before.

Girlschool's early LPs are insanely rare to find on CD, as is most old NWOBHM. I had to settle for the Japan mini-LP sleeve CDs that were issued by Universal Japan in 2008, and even those are quite pricey, but the lesser of two evils when you consider what the out of print Castle pressings from 2004 are currently commanding here on Amazon. But get this band's music any way you can. Their early releases come highly recommended to any fans of vintage NWOBHM.
