Hmmm.... let's play "What will Steve do?"

a) buy the remasters
b) not buy the remasters until a deep dark spot in the back of his mind slowly starts to consume him until he has to buy the remasters anyways

Maybe not... I still haven't bought a single one of the Priest remasters. :wink:

Of course, that's not to say that I haven't obtained the songs by other means... :shock:

Not sure about quality, but each disc only had one or two bonus tracks (mostly live stuff).

:roll: You should skip the live track remasters and look for the bonus track remasters. I mean, if you're going to spend the money, go for the good stuff.
