Warlord: Thy Kingdom Come CD

Post#1 » Wed Oct 30, 2013 5:17 pm

Recently obtained a CD version of this and was curious about its origins. I can't find any information other than metal blade version on LP from '86 and a japanese reissue from '99 on CD. Are there other CD versions from the 80s?

I've seen a Metal Blade Records CD of this, but I am a little uncertain of it's legitimacy. Could you post pictures of it? (booklet, back, CD face and play-side) It could help us tell you more about it.

Looks pretty legit like this, but I would need to see the matrix area of the playing side to tell for sure. (as I requested previously also)

(What's interesting about this CD which makes me doubt it's legitimacy is that compared to other Metal Blade CDs not a lot of people seem to own this one)

this looks like the japanese pressing from 1990 on Pony Canyon with different catalog number.


which the russians apparently bootlegged:

EDIT: Grimlord cracked it. It's always funny when they replicate CDs that don't exist. (Chastain anyone? :P)

I'll try to get better pictures of later of everything including the matrix side.

Matrix reads: MBRCD 1072-2 11+++

I question its authenticity for the same reasons; I've never seen another CD copy or heard of one existing besides the Japanese repress.

edit: looks pretty much identical to the one from that eBay auction but the blue coloring on my cover is darker vs. the one in the picture. I also got mine on eBay in a mysterious circumstance. I lost the auction for it then was immediately offered a "second chance" offer from the seller. It was cheap enough so I went for it but still...

From what i remember the was only a jap CD pressing.
Thats why back in 1988 i bought the tape version of this one!

CD versions for US/Europe with the same artwork were released around 1993, but with 'Best Of' as title.

Return to “CD collector heaven!”
