November Record Day - 1st Nov - 1st Record you ever purchased with your own money


Fahmi Reza had asked me to join this. I agreed. However, the problem with this is that I probably don't have all of it as requested and I might forget the history of it as I started collecting music (not necessarily records) since I was 9 or 10 years old (I am 39 btw). To demonstrate, I cannot remember what 1st record I ever purchased with my own money. To substitute, I still remember the first music I ever bought.

SAXON Power & The Glory cassette was one of the earliest music my dad bought for me on MY request when I was 9 or 10. The other included in the lot was SCORPIONS Blackout and KISS Creatures of the Night. Where I am quite a big fan of SCORPIONS, I was never a KISS fan. But SAXON, especially this album stuck in my heart as one of the HEAVIEST music I ever heard at that time.

I still think this is the heaviest SAXON record of the 80s. Out of 8 tracks offered, only The Eagle Has Landed can be considered as a ballad. And it not really a ballad, rather a slo-mo heavy. The opening track Power and the Glory fits nicely with the guitar riffs sounded like 2 Minutes to Midnight (Iron Maiden). The third track Warrior resembles a thrash metal without even knowing it was a thrash metal. The fourth track, Nightmare sends chill to the spine and the 7th, Midas Touch was simply superb crushing heavy metal.


Power & the Glory is the fifth studio album by heavy metal band Saxon released in 1983 (see 1983 in music). This is the first Saxon studio album with new drummer Nigel Glockler.
