Hey guys, I used to own an original vinyl recording of Strong Arm of The Law, and my suggestion is - DO NOT BUY THIS IMPORT!!! Not only did they screw up the sound quality (the "crack" of the rifle shots in Dallas 1PM are reduced to dull whimpers), but some moron decided to re-do the track order, thoroughly messing up the cohesiveness of the recording.
The original track order was as follows:
Dallas 1PM; Strong Arm of The Law; 6th Form Girls; Hungry Years
Heavy Metal Thunder;
Taking Your Chances; To Hell and Back Again; 20,000 FT.
The order on the remaster is:
Heavy Metal Thunder; To Hell and Back Again; Strong Arm of The Law; Taking Your Chances
20,000 FT; Hungry Years; Sixth Form Girls; Dallas 1PM
Now tell me, what kind of brain-dead moron would squeeze "Strong Arm of The Law" between "To Hell and Back Again" and "Taking Your Chances"? And move a track like "Dallas 1PM" to the END of the recording?
Jeez - avoid at all costs. If you really HAVE to get it, at least program your CD player to play it in the original track order. And invest in a good equalizer, because the sound quality sucks.

The (2nd to last) previous poster has it right on! I was disappointed that this cd was "remastered." I used to listen to my album years ago and the drum intro of Dallas 1pm sounded fantastic - just the right amount of reverb. Now, it sounds as if someone merely transferred the dry master tracks without ANY effects! Yes, the songs are still great, but
the production took a HUGE step backwards - a pity. And the track re-ordering is another snafu.... Dallas 1pm at the end??? WHY???

Strong Arm of the Law is a very impressive album by these British rock masters. "Dallas 1PM" and "Strong Arm of the Law" are classic Saxon composions. Saxon moves beyond the narrow-minded scope of lesser bands. Their songs display a growing sophistication. Saxon advances in both the brutal economy of their song stuctures and the relevent topics they address in the lyrics. "Dallas 1PM " would be an example of this progression as it touches on the assasination of JFK. The entire second side of this recording really rocks. Every true Saxon fan must have this one.

I have to agree with the reviewer from Grenada. This is a disappointing CD. My biggest gripe is the song order. Luckily my US release cassette still plays! And for the sound quality...Dallas 1PM sounds like it was recorded in a small sterile studio. The original version sounded like it was recorded in a big dirty warehouse with a big fat sound. Especially on the drum intro. All of the reverb is gone. I only gave it 2 stars because if you HAVE to have it on CD, then you have to have it.
