NWOBHM full LPs
Going in chronological order here's Grand Prix' self titled debut from 1980. Although he came in after this LP was released, Robin McAulley was briefly a member of the band. He went on to do several albums with guitar whiz Michael Schenker. This album is closer to the beginning of the wave, but still very representative of it.
From 1983, one of my favorites, this is Satan's Court in the Act. I've had this one on about every medium you can think of, album, cassette and CD. And the great thing about it is it still sounds great today!
From 1984, here is Holland's Early Warning. Another great LP that holds up nicely. Clocking in at slightly over 35 minutes it would probably be called a mini LP today.
And from late in the wave, here is Tytan's Rough Justice ('85).
Sorry for the lack of info on these, I am still getting used to my new job and trying to get things settled around the homestead. If anyone has any questions or anything please leave in comments and Kit (who really knows the ins and outs of these bands) or myself will be happy to try to help. These were just some albums I've had for years (except one I got off a bit torrent a while back) and thought they'd be a good addition for the NWOBHM fans that seem to be gathering.
And as a sort of tribute to Samson, who seem to be losing original members more frequently these days here are 2 videos from the Bruce Bruce (Dickerson)/Thunderstick version of the band. The first is a live version of Hard Times and the second is the promotional video for Vice Versa. I highly recommend the Vice Versa as it reminded me of the early days of MTV and how hilarious some of those early metal videos are today (and it's funny too how cool we thought they were back then). The videos are AVI format and fairly good quality.

Well that's it from me. I will be over at the other blog soon with an update ASAP.
