Saw this headline on Blabbermouth...
Ex JUDAS PRIEST Guitarist K.K. DOWNING blasts RICHIE FAULKNER!!! "HE DOESN'T DESERVE THOSE DOGS!"
Saw this comment on Blabbermouth:
KK Downing weighs in on recent Judas Priest association with Dog Rescue: "I can't believe they let Richie pose with a dog that looks just like mine."

The back cover of Sin After Sin album is the continuation of the album cover.
Ah I never knew Call for the Priest segues into Raw Deal on the original album rather than Let us Prey segueing into Call for the Priest. Is that a mistake on the sleeve or have they changed it for the remaster?

I had the vinyl and I don't remember the track listing but…this is what I found in metal-archives:
The tracklisting differs from previous releases, but the re-masters have it the way the band originally intended and that's the one displayed below. The biggest change is the correction of the famous "Let Us Prey" mistake. "Let Us Prey" is the short intro to "Call for the Priest", but on many compilations (and the original listing) "Let Us Prey" is listed as the longer track.

Yeah, it was a mistake (as @The_7th_one posted above). ''Let Us Prey'' is just a short intro (1+ minutes long) to ''Call For The Priest''. And the song ''Let Us Prey/Call For The Priest'' is 6+ minutes long.... ''Raw Deal'' is also 6 minutes long.

This info is from Wikipedia: This was the first (in order of release) of Judas Priest’s main albums to be remastered in 2001, which included all of the albums between this and their 1990 Painkiller album. The remaster corrected an error in the track listing; "Call for the Priest", which forms one track with "Let Us Prey", had erroneously been listed as forming one track with "Raw Deal" until then.

I'm glad this was just a mistake on the original LP as I hate when remasters are different from the original albums, e.g. see Metal Essentials thread which has "fake" remasters tracklisting of Strangers in the Night.

Other disgraces include 1998 remasters of early Maiden albums with bonus tracks included, first WASP album with Fuck Like a Beast added, The Who Live at Leeds being massively extended

first WASP album with Fuck Like a Beast added
The song was intended to be on the album from the get-go but was only dropped after the label decided it was too controversial. I think it’s better on the album than not on it at all, but of course there’s going to be a difference of opinion if the original is the one you’ve heard all your life. But really, the reissue was an attempt to rectify that which was originally planned so.

As I suspected, Ian Hill has said that Faulkner is responsible for changing the setlist heavily. Well, they started to do that from the current tour.

"Richie started it off. He'd be in the dressing room with his guitar, and he'd play one of the old songs. [We'd say,] 'Bloody hell. That's good!' Other people start putting ideas in, and we'd come up with a whole bunch of great stuff that we haven't played for decades."

For me it's a matter of when I buy an album I want to get what people had back in the day. I can cope with anything extra being on a seperate disc like Made in Japan. It's probably similar to when nerds moan about the Star Wars dvd's :lol:

I can't believe I forgot the worst one of all time, Sad Wings of Destiny having Side A and Side b reversed. The "Prelude" being on Side B FFS

I really like all those short clips that Priest released for the Redeemer Of Souls and Firepower albums.

It would be cool if Maiden do that. Yeah, it's not a proper documentary, but still is something.

The songs Hell & Back and Metalizer from ROS album were written from the band before Faulkner come in.

Also, Metalize was a working title for the album for a while.

So after seeing Priest and Maiden now, and both bands from the barrier... If there hypothetically was a Priest/Maiden tour then Iron Maiden should definitely be the headliner. There is no competition. Maiden's shows are way bigger and the performance is top notch.

I'll do a full posting about the rest of the show later.
