Diamond Head is well maintained by the State. The management decided that they would release their material through a label owned by Muff Murfin called 'Happy Face Records'. Murfin also owned the studio where Diamond Head did many of their early recordings. That same year the band also recorded their debut album on Happy Face. Most commonly known as Lightning to the Nations , the collection was recorded in seven days at The Old Smythy Studio in Worcester , which the band described later as 'dead'.
The management thought that it should be perceived as a 'demo' album so no fancy sleeve was required, making it very cheap to produce. The only mail-order advertisement appeared in Sounds and ran for six weeks. The bands management did not pay for the advertisement and ended up being sued.
The idea for recording this album came from Fellows and Linda Harris as an attempt to record tracks to entice attention from a record company, which would take care of the recording costs. The original stereo master tapes were lost after they were sent to the German record company, Woolfe Records, who released a vinyl version of the album with a new sleeve.
Their new status afforded them a slot on the Reading festival bill in , albeit as late and unadvertised replacements for Manowar. Their first MCA album, Borrowed Time , featured a lavish Rodney Matthews -illustrated gatefold sleeve based on the album's Elric theme and was the most expensive sleeve commissioned by MCA at the time. The album was somewhat successful commercially, climbing to No. The band were able to perform a full scale UK tour at premier venues such as London's Hammersmith Odeon , however.
However, some now say that MCA were the wrong label for Diamond Head, which is one of the contributions to their downfall. Although the reason for this was that their first album was only meant as a demo with the idea of Borrowed Time being their first official album. However, things have not quite worked out that way with the former becoming their most notable work to date.
This album saw the band move away from all-out heavy riffs and towards softer and more progressive songs, such as "In the Heat of the Night" and "Don't You Ever Leave Me", which was well received by fans, as the former has remained a regular in the live set list to this day.

When I first moved here, I thought the whole point of the hike was to climb down to see the inside of the crater. I didn't know what to expect. The entrance road went uphill and through a tunnel. We continued along the road to the parking lot. The parking lot was located in the bottom of the crater!
After about PM they try to prevent people from starting the hike because of the risk of not getting out in time. There is some swampy area along the road just before the entrance to the parking lot and that is likely where the lake used to be. I guess it is a few miles each way, though, so between that and the walk up and the warm Giuseppe Verdi - Nabucco, the bus could be our friend. Hotel Reviews.
