Deluxe 180 gm clear vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. Originally released in 1980, British Steel was recorded at Tittenhurst Park, home of former Beatle Ringo Starr, after a false start at Startling Studios, a recording studio located on Tittenhurst's grounds. Sampling did not yet exist at the time of recording, so the band recorded the sounds of smashing milk bottles to be included in 'Breaking the Law', as well as various sounds in 'Metal Gods' produced by "trays of cutlery" and "billiard cues". It was released in the UK at a discount price of 3.99, with the advertisements in the music press bearing the legend, "British Steal". Songs 'Breaking the Law', 'United, and 'Living After Midnight' were released as singles, while the track 'Metal Gods' earned the band members their moniker. Back on Black.
