These albums have stood the test of time better than i could have ever imagined. They both still sound as fresh as they did on release. It`s hard to explain to all those of you that will be buying these for the 1st time how big an impact Wheels Of Steel had on the then new NWOBHM. The title track has almost taken on a mythical status in the HM world but its true that it helped define the NWOBHM scene. There are loads & loads of absolutley killer tracks available here. All with that destinctive Saxon guitar sound. As has been said already Strong Arm... is an absolutley stunning album. Saxon allways had an ability to go from fast uptempo songs to slow mid tempo stuff in the drop of a hat but they allways wrote songs you`d walk away singing, Check out "See The Light Shinning" "Motorcycle Man"or "Machine Gun" off of Wheels or "Heavy Metal Thunder" "To Hell & Back Again" "20,000 ft" from Strong Arm... to hear how to write fast uptempo songs with great hooks & chorus`s. Some of the best riffs ever written & recorded reside on these here 2 albums. "Wheels Of Steel" "747 Strngers In The Night" "Strong Arm Of The Law" "Hungry Years" "Dallas 1pm" are all fine examples of this. The fact that these 2 albums are now available as a Double album CD type thing is great. If you`re a Metal fan then this Cd is a must have.....

Saxon; leviathans of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and all round rock gods in the 1980s. A band whose obvious enjoyment in all they did was only matched by their raucous embrace of the metal genre. So it was that one of England’s most recognisable bands of the time produced two of the finest albums of the era. That the two can be obtained all at the same time is a bonus.
Whilst this pack offers acceptable live versions of various classics, they are merely a distraction from the stripped down sound and distinctive vocals by which Saxon were once able to reduce Iron Maiden to being their support act.
If Wheels of Steel was a work in progress, Strong Arm of the Law was a masterpiece. Let’s not miss the point here: metal music had many contributors back in the early 80’s and for a band to shine amongst the dross was a major achievement. That Saxon did so with two albums of class and talent was no mean feat. That so many of the songs, including the exceptional Dallas 1PM, have stood the test of time is even more remarkable.
Sadly, Saxon was never able to sustain this creativity, despite some classics down the line. So if you’re working through their material backwards, fast track to the starting line and set yourself a new challenge. Finally, this CD should come with a warning about the photo of Saxon on the back of the cover booklet. Please ensure that food has had a chance to digest before opening!

Who remembers the late 70's early 80's then? By the look of this chart not many of you! Alongside AC/DC's "If You Want Blood", "No Sleep til Hammersmith" by Motorhead and "Killers" by Iron Maiden, this has to be THE advert for the era.
There are three great sadnesses from this time for me - the death of Bon Scott (obviously), Paul Di'anno leaving Maiden (why oh why?) and the fact that Saxon never really made it as big as they should have.
Saxon offered something different from the mainstream - hard yet reasonably catchy melodic rock (Wheels of Steel, See the Light Shining), fast metal (Machine Gun, Heavy Metal Thunder)and some all time 100% classics (747-Strangers in the Night, Dallas 1pm and both title tracks). I was going to list bands that they may remind you of, but, like all the very best, they really do have a pretty much individual sound - and hail to them for that.
They are, of course, not exactly easy listening albums (but so what?!) so don't expect your granny to start strutting her thang to them, but they're not really over the top heavy either (at least not compared to today's lot, eh Marilyn!). What I really like about them is that all the songs seem to have been thought about and not just thrown onto the record to make up the listings. They're not all brilliant, but none are truly bad (although "Street Fighting Man" does its' best to fall down!).
When these albums came out I was coming up 16 and it wasn't about which kind of music did you prefer, it was which metal/rock band did you prefer. Listen to these two albums (what a shame they couldn't put "The Eagle has Landed" in as a trilogy - now THAT would be hard to beat!) and you'll find out why Saxon were always touted as being up there with the very best. Buy it...now.

For anyone getting into the world of heavy rock/metal and missed these albums first time round, the advice is - it doesnt get much better than these. Right up there with "Back in Black" (AC/DC) Strong Arm is one of the finest heavy rock albums ever! There isnt a dud track - if only the soloing at the end of "Taking your chances" could go on and on. "Hungry Years" is the pick of an excellent bunch. These two albums display Saxon at their finest. Do yourself a favour and seek them out, now!

About as cool as Milli Vanilli but I still love both these albums over 20 years since they first came out.
These were the albums which got me into "heavy" music in the first place.
