Daniels, Neil: Judas Priest- British Steel (book)

Famed metal writer and historian Neil Daniels has set his sights on one of the pivotal albums that lead to the rise of heavy metal. Encapsulated within the CD sized publication is a story that all fans of the genre should take the time to find out how an important part of music history came to be. Within the 62 pages, Daniels gives you a very brief history of the band to the point of the making of British Steel and then delivers a tasty in depth look at what went into the birth of this iconic album.

Filled with a wealth of information and details about the band's thinking at the time, the whole aura about how this disc came to be makes for a terrific if brief read. Daniels manages to make the story complete even though he does so in a very small amount of space. He even has time to go into the tour that followed and the re-issues of the album.

It is amazing how detailed a work this is. The track by track analysis of British Steel is well worth checking out along with his inclusion of what other rock and roller writers has to say on the subject. I think that this is a terrific idea and I hope that Daniels continues with this format for so many albums that would fall under the category of legendary. I have read and re-read this one a few times now and will be waiting impatiently for the next book by Daniels. His biography on Journey looks like it might be next on the list!
