About this release

One of the principal bands in the now legendary New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM),with Iron Maidenand Judas Priest, Saxon broke through with their second album “Wheels Of Steel” and single “747 (Strangers In The Night)”in early 1980.

In 1990 they signed to Virgin Germany and recorded their tenth album “Solid Ball Of Rock” in Hamburg, with much of the material written by new bassist Nibbs Carter.

This reissue includes two bonus tracks, a note by lead singer Biff Byford, the lyrics, and a brand new noteby Record Collector contributor Joe Geesin, based on a 2013 interview with Biff.
