According to the book, the 7" was from a 5-song demo session. They also had a 4-song BBC session. Not sure that's 100% accurate of course but I have 2 songs from each on a CDR. These sessions would make a nice reissue package with the first Wolf LP, to hear how their sound evolved.

that said, my comment was off the cuff and just an example, really I would like to see a lot of these anthology releases coming out.

do you like the Wolf LP or just the BA single? I thought the LP wasn't bad actually.

Would love to do VIRTUE (top 5 NWOBHM), but Tudor doesn't want to release it right now....
