Diamond Head debut gets deluxe treatment

On October 24th 2011, the debut album by Diamond Head was reissued as a deluxe double CD.

‘Lightning to the Nations’ – also known as ‘The White Album – was originally released in October 1980 and featured some of the band’s most famous songs: ‘Am I Evil?’, ‘The Prince’ and ‘Helpless’, all three of which were covered by Metallica at various points in their career.

The full track listing for the reissue is as follows:

Disc One:

01. Lightning To The Nations
02. The Prince
03. Sucking My Love
04. Am I Evil?
05. Sweet And Innocent
06. It’s Electric
07. Helpless

Disc Two:

01. Shoot Out The Lights
02. Streets Of Gold
03. Waited Too Long
04. Play It Loud
05. Diamond Lights
06. We Won’t Be Back
07. I Don’t Got

(Diamond Head connoisseurs may note that the track listing is exactly the same as the single disc expanded remaster from 2008. In keeping with Universal’s “Deluxe Edition” series, this 2011 release has been housed in a fold out digipak and needlessly spread across two discs.)
