Source: I was not able to confirm if this really comes from Irvine Meadows on 29 July ’84. Judas priest also wrapped up their Defenders Of The Faith tour in Japan in September of ’84 with an identical set list, so keep your ears open and let me know if you can settle the usual XL album question: Western show or yet another undercover Live In Japan album?

1595 A: LOVE BITES / JAWBREAKER / GRINDER / METAL GODS / BREAKING THE LAW

1595 B: THE SINNER /DESERT PLAINS / SOME HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL / THE SENTINEL / ROCK HARD RIDE FREE

Judas Priest United 2

Judas Priest United b

Japan: 1981 or ’82

Staying with the first Donington / Monsters of Rock festival on 16 August 1980, here are 10 of their 11 songs performed that day – the opener ‘Hellbent for Leather’ is missing – sourced from a decent audience recording.

The producers were either not well versed in Judas Priest song titles or there is another reason for all these errors: ‘Sailor’ = ‘Sinner’; ‘Beyond the Rouse’ = ‘Beyond the Realms of Death’; ‘Rockin’the Beast’ = ‘Grinder’; ‘Woman’= Victim of Changes’; ‘Take on the World’= ‘The Green Manalishi (with the two pronged crown)’; ‘Killing Machine’ = ‘Tyrant’).  The last three tracks are all identified correctly: ‘Breaking The Law’ and ‘Living After Midnight’ were taken from the second airing of a radio broadcast recorded at Amsterdam’s Jaap Eden Hall on Valentine’s day 1981 and the last track on side 4 ‘Hot Rockin’ is the studio version.
