7” picture disc, single from their LP Nightflight, RCA Records, 1981.
Though forming in the late 1960s and doing a great deal of recording and touring in the 70s, Budgie made a comeback during the NWOBHM and took their place among the important influences on the young bands of the movement.
B-side of their “You’ve Got To Rock” 7” single, Vice Records, 1980.
This track might have been part of a self-financed album by the Liverpool NWOBHM band, but I can find no hard evidence of the full-length record’s existence. By 1984, they were signed by US label Epic records for whom they released two LPs (Contraband, 1984, and Living in Fear of the Private Eye, 1986). Their work, though celebrated by critics and the industry alike, failed to catch the attention of the record-buying public.
