Title: Mercyful Fate: Walking Back to Hell vinyl
Post by: TheUnnamedOne on December 02, 2006, 05:06:17 am
I bought a Mercyful Fate vinyl not too long ago (haven't listened to it yet becouse my brother uses the vinylplayer (??)), it is called Walking Back to Hell. After a little research about it on google, I found out that it's one of Mercyful Fate's absolute first gigs. I don't know if it's true.
Does anyone know something about this vinyl?

I have it by myself (in red vinyl - like I think all red vinyl pressings there´s  a pressing error: There´s a lot of hiss and crackle on side A) - there´s also a black vinyl version around (like I know without that pressing error with lots of hiss and crackle). It must be the first Gig in summer 1981 in Taastrup, Denmark under the name of Mercyful Fate. But I´m a little bit confused ´cause King is talking in english with the crowd - on other bootlegs from Denmark is talking danish (logically).
Therefore I´m not 100% sure if the date is true.

The same recording was released as several bootlegs (Sabbath Of All Witches, The Witch, Walking Back To Hell, Taastrup, Denmark 1981 - The Beginning...)

Ok, my vinyl is black, I can't wait to listen to it. But my stupid brother uses the player to convert the vinyls into mp3s on his computer, so maybe I can ask him to do the same with my vinyl. I got it for a really good price; 130 swedish crowns, that's like $15 or something, so if it's one of their first gigs i assume it's rare and worth alot more.

About he's talking english in it; I think I've seen some videos on youtube from a early MF gig in Denmark where he's talking english, but I'm not sure if it's live in Denmark. It would be a little odd to talk english on a gig in Denmark if you're from there

$15 sums it up pretty much. I wouldn't pay more for it...got the black vinyl myself.
It is a rare item, but not that rare as you may think.
