Great find Ill that to the listHaha, I thought you'd like this. Let's have it.
I like how Nicko hits the china in The Duellists when going into the second verse (after the 1st chorus: a break on the toms follows and then: bang). Another one ( a double hit!) at the start of Adrian's solo.
Perhaps his china (or how it landed in the mix) sounded the best on that album.
Alright here's the first two done, this is taking longer than expected
One caveat- the way the cymbals are EQ'd and the way the songs are mixed on the '80s albums can make it a bit difficult to accurately ID crash vs. china sounds. Most of these are pretty easy to hear, but a few require repeated listens with headphones.
Piece of Mind:
Where Eagles Dare - 0:23
Revelations - 0:05 (doubled with crash cymbal hits)
Flight of Icarus - 0:00 (again, double with crash cymbal hits)
Die with Your Boots On - 0:46 (at the end of verse 1, just before the pre-chorus)
The Trooper - 0:57 (right before "As I Plunge On Into Sudden Death")
Still Life - 2:02
Quest for Fire - 0:59
Sun and Steel - 0:01 (doubled with crash)
To Tame A Land - 0:06
Aces High - 0:25 (first hit after the intro)
2 Minutes to Midnight - 1:15
Losfer Words - 0:04 (doubled with crash)
Flash of the Blade - NONE (there may be some doubled-up hits, but it's very hard to tell the way things are mixed)
Duellists - 1:07
Back In The Village - 1:22 (going into verse 2)
Powerslave - 0:20 (on the non-fucked up original version, where the intro is still attached...)
Rime of the Ancient Mariner - 0:17 (just before vocals enter)
Oh there's plenty- off hand really the only albums where he doesn't use it much are the Blaze-era albums, BNW and DOD.Thats some great effort , i really didnt know it was that many songs
Piece of Mind and Powerslave-songs fits kinda well with the china sound, but it will be interesting to see if you find any in Somewhere in Time and forth on
