Hmmm, I don't know.
If I'm Tim "Ripper" Owens, I think I'm a little bit offended that my four albums worth of contributions
to the J.P. canon [Jugulator (1997), '98 Live Meltdown (1998), Demolition (2001), Live in London (2003)] are being summarily ignored...As if the band did nothing between 1990-2005. I hope he at least gets an honroable mention and a couple of photos in the deluxe booklet.
Also, Nostradamus kind of sucked.
JUDAS PRIEST'S CAREER SHOWCASED WITH EXTENSIVE CD BOX SET, 'THE COMPLETE ALBUMS COLLECTION'
Few heavy metal artists have built as stellar a discography as Judas Priest over the years.
And now, fans will get a chance to acquire all of Priest's classics in one fell swoop. On January 24th, Columbia/Epic/Legacy will release the 17-CD box set, 'The Complete Albums Collection,' which contains every studio and live album that featured the classic line up of Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing, and Ian Hill.
Included will be brand new remasters of Priest's first two albums, 1974's 'Rocka Rolla' and 1976's 'Sad Wings of Destiny' (which have never been released before as authorized remasters by the band), in addition to each individual album being packaged in a replica mini-LP sleeve reproducing that albumâs original cover art.
And although the 2009 live compilation, 'A Touch of Evilâ¦Live' is included; no other compilations will be present.
Also featured in the set will be a 40-page booklet with photos, album credits, and liner notes by rock journalist/Priest fan Greg Prato.
'The Complete Albums Collection' will be available for purchase exclusively via Popmarket.com.
It's not often that you can acquire all of the classic albums by one of rock's all-time great bands in one gorgeously assembled package.
Judas Priest's killer 'The Complete Albums Collection' is certainly one of these rare occurrences.
