  2. This is not entirely correct… there is a 2nd printing on Decca matrices with Robert Stace printing credit. The difference is that the line “Thanks for the Words Al!” is missing from the back cover. This is a reference to original singer Al Atkins letting them use the name Judas Priest and some of his uncredited lyrics. The Pye version is then the third printing.
