36 years ago - Judas Priest Release Point of Entry
36 Years Ago, Judas Priest Released 'Point of Entry'. And while this record was slightly more radio friendly, it got zero airplay where I lived. I didn't care though since I never listened to the radio and still don't. It had some solid metal tunes and it came out in 1981 a little over a year after British Steel and a little over a year before the masterpiece: "Screaming for Vengeance." A record I played hundreds of times as did many metallions from my generation.
I miss the years when records came out every 12 - 24 months. Below is an AWESOME live video of - Heading Out To The Highway:
