I popped in my local store last weekend and found this little beauty. A Japanese pressing of my favourite Sabbath album. I remember hearing this when I was 14. My uncle liked some rock and he lent it me along with a live Ozzy LP. That was 27 years ago and I can still remember listening to it for the first time.
Jap pressings usually always look awesome and this is no exception, complete with obi strip.
This is in danger of becoming a Violent reaction only records blog. When I ordered a blue vinyl UK pressing of 'city streets' on Quality control records.I found out that there were another 100 pressed up on red vinyl for the forthcoming European tour. At first I wondered if I really needed it as I had scored a red copy of the US pressing but then the collector geek snapped in me-of course I did so it just made me more determined to catch them with Hounds of hate in the UK. Apart from an amazing gig I also managed to pick one up-double win. It's more of a clear red compared to the solid red vinyl on Painkiller. So you need one basically.
I picked up a spare copy -figuring one of my overseas comrades would be after one. No this strictly for trade not for flipping on Ebay. If anyone has a copy of the prisoner abuse LP on clear then that would seal the deal.
Yep, I know I’ve been quiet of late on here but I’m going to
try and catch up with stuff-it’s not like I’ve done no record shopping lately
Sticking with Violent reaction, I
noticed their 7” was getting a
stateside release thanks to 6131 & Mind rot records. I couldn’t resist-100 on white, 200 on red
and the rest (600) on black. I own 5 copies now-bring on more represses
