Calma, é o título desse disco do Judas Priest, e essa história merece ser contada. Na verdade, não conhecia a banda, posso dizer que após a aquisição desse vinil, meu gosto musical sofreu um upgrade. Screaming for Vegenance é nome desse disco, mas o motivo desse post não é o nome da música em si, mas sim todo o processo da tal aquisição do disco.
O álbum teve mais músicas no mainstream, em relação aos álbuns anteriores, como evidenciado no single “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin”, sendo que foi gravado um videoclipe para esta música. O álbum foi gravado em Ibiza Sound Studios, na Espanha e mixado em Beejay Recording Studios eBayshore Recording Studios, na Flórida. Um CD re-masterizado foi lançado em Maio de 2001.
Calm is the title of this album of Judas Priest, and this story is worth telling.
In fact, the band did not know, I can say that after the acquisition of vinyl, my musical taste has undergone an upgrade.
Screaming for Vegenance name is on that disk, but the reason this post is not the name of the song itself, but the whole process of acquisition of such a disk.
My mother gave me a catalog of gadgets, it was quite normal in the late 70’s and early 80.
Well had the catalog of panties, underwear, even plastic cups. There was a session at the end of discs.
I think even the band name was given, I really liked the cover, and made a [x] next to it. Catalog mailed.
After about 30 days the order arrives. I put the wafer on the phonograph, and, and, and … there was no chemistry. I passed quickly over the tracks, the disc turns, and nothing.
Vinyl tracks, which is well guarded.
1. “The Hellion” – 0:41
2. “Electric Eye” – 3:39
3. “Riding on the Wind” – 3:07
4. “Bloodstone” – 3:51
5. “(Take These) Chains” (Bob Halligan Jr.) – 3:07
6. “Pain and Pleasure” – 4:17
7. “Screaming for Vengeance” – 4:43
8. “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin ‘” – 5:09
9. “Fever” – 5:20
10. “Devil’s Child” – 4:4
Sunday was the day to make such a backup, or how little money was, and still, everyone who bought a vinyl, kept a backup on tape at a friend’s house.
Good that excuse, right, and now they want to avoid with all this technology someone to copy a song that runs almost 100% online.
But back to the disk, my friend Mauro Ritschel, spent Sunday at home, along with it that TDK.
But the feeling was the same, and what would be an afternoon for a good Heavy Metal, ended up being an afternoon of laughter, because the music escaped much of our musical taste.
Here comes the next cool thing, we left sided disc, and each day the class met, we played one or two tracks, and the disc fell to please.
I believe this is the secret of a good hard metal, the thing is not commercial, do not you play a hard and often and he thinks “the record”.
This record the band Fever was the song that made us put the wafer on the phonograph.
Judas Priest ended up being one of my favorite bands, so that in 2008 realized a dream to see them play live, but that’s another post.
