Notes:
– For many years the band was mistakenly known and communicated as ‘Widow’ as per their debut album’s title. This is because the very first pressing on Legend Records was missing the band’s name. According to their official website, 5000 copies were withdrawn and in 1989 all remaining copies were destroyed in a fire. Around 12 copies are known to exist and these were sent out as promos. For sure one of the most rare and expensive pieces of NWOBHM history.
