Hello, I'm recently looking for Judas Priest Sad Wings of Destiny non-remastered CD album. Any suggestions about sound of different pressings or versions? I want it to sound the best and the closest to original track as it could, so I was thinking about getting japanese pressing one. What do you think? And where can I get the best one? 

Greetings!

Have you tried Discogs? They have a marketplace that can be filtered by each version of a release and also flags which ones featuring remastering.

Try these three. They usually have almost anything. Whether it's at the right price is another matter

Discogs is the best place I know of, as like what has already been said, you can filter through specific issues and pressings.

This appears to be the earliest CD pressing listed on Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Judas-Priest-Sad-Wings-Of-Destiny/release/2541180

I have the original vinyl version and the remastered CD and whilst I haven't played them back to back I found the remaster to be pretty good so I wouldn't rule it out. You've got me curious now I'll give them both a listen in the next few days.

I´d be a bit vary investing in early CD pressings of 60s and 70s releases. Many of those releases feature a natural, warm, and organic tone on vinyl, which the early CD versions pretty much ruined. Without having heard it, I´m thinking a newer remaster version is probably the way ahead.

it's true, some of those early Cd versions sounded awful.

I did a comparison between the original Gull Records vinyl version and the 2011 remastered Cd and the Cd is quite a lot brighter sounding than the vinyl. The vinyl has considerably more bottom end which is not surprising. Whilst I prefer the vinyl the remaster is still pretty good and I'd be happy enough with that if it was my only copy. 

I suspect all the Cd versions would not compete with the vinyl for the bottom end but it would be interesting to hear other versions.

I see... Thanks again. I have one more question - I'm still thinking about japanese one; which in your opinion would be better - 1990, 1993 or 2012? (I heard that Rob's vocal isn't great on 2012 second pressing, but I don't know if it's true or not).

^ I don't know to be honest. I've not heard any of the Japanese versions.
