I am heartbroken.

The vinyl I bought back in '86 has gone missing, along with other records I bought back in that era. (The first Maiden album, the Jump in the Fire e.p., etc.)

So, I'm looking to replace it and I'd like some recommendations. I'm not particularly tied to a first press. I understand that Noise releases varied quite a bit in quality and I'd rather buy the version that sounds the best.

Suggestions?

Over 40 views and no one can offer anything?

Banzai vs. Noise?

Thanks! You're thinking it is a good value for the money or the quality?

The Earmark is expensive but im sure the mastering quality is good and its pressed on 180g discs, should be rather good!

While I'm listening to my original vinyl copy of To Mega Therion, I read and reread the notes on backcover and inner sleeve but I can't find any specific words about trumpets , horns and percussions strongly played on "Innocence and Wrath" , "Dawn of Megiddo" and "Necromantical Screams".
How were they recorded ? Musicians or keys ? who did play ?
"Circle of the Tyrants" : who sings the operas words ?
Another question about The Usurper: at the end of the lyrics, it is written between parentheses:
(Inspired by "the ballad of the swords" in "the sign of the usurper" by Tom G. Warrior)
Are these unfinished demos or something ?

any thoughts ?

I seem to recall discussions here that Tom was also writing short stories during those early years, I'm guessing heavily influenced by Robert E. Howard.

And for those waiting with bated breath for the past five years, my copy of To Mega Therion ended up surfacing, along with the Maiden.

"Innocence and Wrath": French horn played by Wolf Bender, percussion played by Reed St. Mark.
"Dawn of Megiddo": French horn played by Wolf Bender, percussion played by Reed St. Mark.
"Necromantical Screams": French horn played by Wolf Bender, percussion played by Reed St. Mark.

Great interview with Tom in July 1985. He talks about the preparations for To Mega Therion and about the problems with Martin at this time.
