This is really a great vid and quite a flashback for the long-time Priest fans. The concert includes tunes all the way back to the British Steel and Point of Entry records. The set list includes:
Out in the Cold, Locked In, Heading Out to the Highway, Breaking the Law, Love Bites, Some Heads are Gonna Roll, Sentinel, Private Property, Desert Plains, Rock You All Around, Hellion/Eletric Eye, Turbo Lover, Freewheel Burning, Green Manalishi, Parental Guidance, Living After Midnight, Another Thing Comin', Hell Bent for Leather, Metal Gods
could have been better
When it comes to concert videos, I'm very picky. I like the ones that show everything as it actually happens. That's not the case with Judas Priest Live. Too much jumping around the show, playing one song, but showing scenes from a different song. It's filmed kind of like Pink Floyd's Delicate Sound Of Thunder video. Too many slow-motion shots. I think concert videos should seem more real. For example: Judas Priest Live In Memphis 1983. If Judas Priest Live was filmed that way, it would be perfect. I'd give it 7 or 8 stars. By the way, does anyone know if they'll ever release a live video for the Irvine Meadows concert from the Painkiller tour? They obviously filmed it.
The best live concert video ever
The accompanying album for this one is pretty good, but the VHS version blows it away, not only because you get the visuals but also because you get four songs not included on the original ("Locked In", "Green Manalishi", "Hell Bent For Leather", and "Desert Plains"). This is truly a Priest Greatest Hits Live video for fans of the late 70's/early-to-mid 80's stuff. And the stage show/costuming are spectacular, truly definitive over-the-top cheesy 80's metal excess...don't get any better than this.
