Worth it for hearing Judas Priest play flitty psych (check the "Winter Retreat" part of track three), Rocka Rolla is Priest's proggy 1974 debut. More uncharacteristic moves come with "Caviar and Meths," an instrumental comedown that closed things out on the original issue before an early version of "Diamonds and Rust" was added in 1987, along with a new, van-art cover. Despite lacking its future identity, the band has its eternally distinctive rhythm-section chug already in place, and title cut "Rocka Rolla" is the best Priest song that doesn't sound anything like Judas Priest.
