I was wondering if anyone here could help me out. I bought this picture disk about 1983 or 1984. It is an interview with the band, sounds like a radio interview. I know it was made in England and only 2500 copies were made. Other than that, I know nothing about this. Any help of the history or possible value would be appreciated.....

It was released in 1984 (2500 copies), UK only and it's a probability this 'special edition' came out because they were playing at the 'Monsters of Rock' at Donington that year!!

These things used to show up all the time in U.S. record stores during the late seventies and throughout the eighties, usually in the import bins to hide the fact that they were essentially illegal bootlegs. The UK Interview one was distributed by an outfit called Phantom Sound & Vision. Today, you can find a handful of these picture discs at Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=n%3A5174%2Ck%3Aphantom+sound+and+vi sion+picture+discs&page=2&keywords=phantom+sound+and+vision+picture+discs&ie=UTF8&qid=1334533072).
