I was disappointed that the bonus tracks on this remaster didn't mimic the track listing for the VHS version of this CD, which included four songs not on the original album - "Desert Plains", "Locked In", "Hell Bent For Leather", and "Green Manalish (With The Two-Pronged Crown)", all of which were of course performed at the same concert on the same tour. This new remaster does include "Hell Bent", but foregoes the other three songs in favor of "Screaming For Vengeance" and "Rock Hard, Ride Free", neither of which came from the 1986 Fuel For Life tour despite what the packaging reads. In fact, prior to "Screaming", Rob tells the crowd, "Here's the title track from the new album," indicating that it is from the tour supporting the "Screaming For Vengeance" album 3 or 4 years earlier. The version of "Hell Bent For Leather" here is also obviously not from the VHS version, since the video was filmed in Dallas, TX and this version ends with Rob saying "Thank you St. Louis!" It could still be from the Fuel For Life tour, not sure.
Live versions of "Desert Plains" and "Locked In" are bonus tracks on other remastered Priest albums, and an older live version of "Green Manalishi" has always been available on "Unleashed In The East", so it's not like those songs don't exist at all on CD, but it would've been nice to have all four on here so I could have the perfect audio companion to the "priest...live!" VHS tape. There is one way Judas Priest can make this up to me - re-release the video version on DVD!
Concert being advertised on the rock stations when I was a kid shortly after the Turbo album was released.I wanted
To go but I was too young. Didn't have the money for the ticket. Then the next day after the concert I remember it was
All over the news about the show I guess things got violent and got out of control at the show.this was the one up in Tacoma Washington 1986.I just remember seeing it on the News kinda crazy how you remember this stuff so yeah its definitely worth
Having great CD
This sets the stage perfectly for the entire show, as what we get is a mish mash with no real consistency and more filler than we'd like. I don't think any band puts as many new songs in a setlist as Priest did on this tour.
"Turbo" was loaded with pseudo-anthems which really lowered the collective I.Q. of the album, and this dumbing down really infects the concert. When some of the songs are as banal as only pop-rock can be, it lowers the intensity of the good songs as well. I say: get rid of "Rock you all around the world", "Private Property", and "Parental Guidance", and replace with some classics like "The Ripper", "The Sinner", or "Tyrant". Save "Out in the Cold" for the middle of the set to calm people down. People don't want to be mellow at the beginning of a concert!
On a good note, Rob's voice is in better form here than it had been in years. The previous couple of tours saw him really in bad shape, not singing as much as screeching or whining nasally, and his screams were almost as bad as Bruce Dickinson's are now. See the 'Live in Memphis' video for proof of that. But fortunately he cleared up his issues and his voice is good as new here, and would never leave him again.
Glenn and K.K. added guitar solos to "Heading out to the Highway" and "Breaking the Law" this time, which were more than welcome.Read more ›
