Wheels of Steel is the second studio album by the English heavy metal band Saxon. It was released in 1980 and reached Platinum status in the UK. "747 (Strangers in the Night)" is about a power cut that forced planes in New York to remain in ascent in 1965 with the power outage provoking a Scandinavian flight to detour to Kennedy airport in the dark.

Album Name Wheels of Steel. Erscheinungsdatum 05 Mai 1980. Mitglieder die dieses Album besitzen465. 1. Motorcycle Man. 04:00. 2. Stand Up and Be Counted.

5. Freeway Mad. 02:41. Wheels of Steel (Live at the Monsters of Rock Festival, 1980). 16. 747 (Strangers in the Night) (Live at the Monsters of Rock Festival, 1980). Best Saxon album ever.

After finding themselves a qualified heavy metal producer in Pete Hinton, the members of Saxon recovered from their disappointing debut in fine form with 1980's career-defining Wheels of Steel. As well as effectively setting the template for the band's most successful efforts, the album's songs positively gleamed with a bright, metallic sheen similar to that exhibited by the chrome eagle hoisting a motorcycle wheel on its iconic cover

this is an awesome japan edition of this classic from 1980, this was probably the best hm lp released in 1980 next to the first angelwitch lp or the first maiden lp, anyway this great japan edition comes with a nice thick red obi, inner sheet and the vinyl sounds amazing, i have had this in my collection for 35 years now...
