  1. They liked it so much they covered it twice, in fact. They recorded it for their second album for a small British label, and then again for their first major label album. (Plus there’s a version on at least one live album) For all of the pseudo-machismo of the genre, Priest has interestingly wide tastes in music. (They also did a fun cover of The Green Manilishi With the Two-Pronged Crown, which you may remember as a Fleetwood Mac song from the days when Mac was mostly a blues band, pre-Buckingham and Nicks.)

  2. There’s a version of this tune on their live DVD from Memphis in 82, and they played “The Green Manilishi” at Live Aid.
