Warrior On The Edge Of Time

Vinyl variants


The vinyl issue of Warrior is particularly confusing - some territories got the fold-down sleeve and picture inner, others got a single sleeve with a plain inner. Some got a red colour inner, others got it in black & white. New Zealand issued it as a gatefold. Japan issued it in a single sleeve with an insert featuring sleeve notes and lyrics, plus a poster.

Most of the vinyl labels referred to 'The Demented Man' and 'Magnu' as 'The Demented King' and 'Magno', but there were some particularly interesting interpretations of the titles from Greece...

Cassettes


The UK cassette version added 'Warriors' to the end of side 1 (and also listed 'The Demented King' and 'Magno'), Portugal exchanged 'The Wizard Blew His Horn' for 'Kings Of Speed', and Germany swapped the sides around! Australia got the right order, but I think the guys at Rockfield would have something to say about the claim it was "Recorded in England".

8-tracks


The US and Australian 8-track versions really went to town on the track listing...
