    A few years ago, I bought the Buried By Time and Dust Records compilation, "Buried Amongst The Ruins." It included the "Burning A Sinner" 7" single, the "Soviet Invasion" 12" single, and "Live '81." I ended up finding a vinyl copy of "Soviet Invasion" and recording it. I also downloaded Strappado's rip of "Burning A Sinner." I preferred these two rips to the sound on the CD versions. Because of this, I ended up trading the "Buried Amongst The Ruins" CD, but I kept the "Live '81" portion of the disc in lossless. I'm uploading it to store as a back up, and am sharing it here. I created and included artwork for it. The artwork image is created to be similar to the second cover of the "Live '83" release.

    Thanks for the upload VardisRules, it's an interesting historical artifact.
    I knocked up full custom CD artwork from the piece you provided in the rar & from the various 'Buried Amongst The Ruins' releases.
    Thought i'd post it here for anyone else who wants it.
    Enjoy.

    Nice artwork indeed, buddy. Much thanks. The black and white image that I used for the cover came from my lyric sleeve for "Friends Of Hell." I scanned the lyric sleeve and cropped the image, while adding the lettering for "Live '81." I love what you added to it. Great stuff, indeed!

    Thanks for the kind words VardisRules.
    It was really just a question of assembling the various elements from different sources, but i thought it came together quite well.
    I'd really just put the cover together for myself, but i thought i'd share it for anyone burning your files to CD-r.
    It's always nice to have a complete package.
