British metal legends Judas Priest announce the reissue of their 10th studio album, Turbo.

The album has been remastered and will be released via Sony Music on February 3rd, 2017 on 3 CD (the original album and two bonus discs) as well as 1LP 150g vinyl.

Originally released in 1986, Turbo features all the hallmarks of classic Priest on tracks such as Turbo Lover, Parental Guidance and Locked In. Included on disc 2 and 3 of the CD reissue is, previously unreleased, Live in Kansas City, a live recording from the band’s 1986 Fuel For Life tour in support of Turbo.

The band add “The 80’s is considered to have been the best decade for heavy metal – Judas Priest roared through it and at the half way point went into unchartered territory with Turbo. Always believing that metal should have no boundaries, Priest challenged themselves taking on board new technical inventions to create fresh ideas and push their sound forward. The combined songs show another side of Priest’s range of creativity that captures a theme and energy infused with the over the top sensibilities of that era. The Fuel For Life tour certainly encapsulated the decadence of the times! Turbo remastered and accompanied by a pedal to the metal live recording from Kansas reveals Priest on high octane – raising fists and devil horns to the next level.”

    I am a big fan of Ian Hill’s pose in this picture.

    I’ve been a sucker buying everybody’s remastered albums. But I’m drawing the line and not doing it anymore. It’s a money grab because not many people actually pay for new music. I can’t blame these bands for trying to make money. But how many times can you remaster a record and how many different live versions of these same songs does one need to have? Surprisingly Kiss has not hopped on this train other than Destroyer and Love Gun. I thought by now they would’ve released three remastered versions of every cd with never before seen pictures, re-recorded songs with tommy and Eric, for $100 each especially considering their arena football team tanked and they need to get that money back.

      Kiss did that during the reunion era

    I’ll bite, if I can get it on sale in the $10-$12 range.
    I got the new Metallica 3-disc for $10 at Best Buy when it first came out.
    I’ll keep buying, just don’t gouge us fans.

    I like the album, but is it really worth a 2nd remasstering? It’s not their best anyway.

    All the renpmastering in the world won’t help this record it sucked in 86 and guess what? It still sucks today

      As a Priest purist, I agree it is not one of their best albums, but I wouldn’t necessarily say it sucks. It does have a smattering of good songs, Wild Nights, Hot And Crazy Days, being one of them.

      However, I will admit when it came it out in ’86, I did not like it at all. It took me years to appreciate certain aspects of this record. The one thing that I still do not care for, is all the machines, and synths, that were used in the recording process. I get that Priest wanted to try something new, and experiment with their sound by pushing boundaries, but going from Defenders to this, was quite a shock for the die hard fans.

      I do like the title song (especially live) and out in the cold. But songs like Parental Guidance is so bad it’s comical. In fact I saw an interview with Kerry King on TMS who was disappointed with one of Slayers albums and said it was ‘”their Turbo”. I agree with you that as a follow up to DotF it was very bad.

      Turbo Lover, has it charms. I do like the fourth verse (where it starts, “Then we race together,”). However, as a whole, it is bit Studio 54 for me-LOL!! I had heard a dance re-mix of this song was made and was played in clubs, so there’s that. 😉
