Martin Maynard I first heard Mercyful Fate on the live session that appears on this album from the BBC Friday Rock Show. I have to say I was blown away by them, and I personally feel that they are better than the tracks that appear on the studio album. Some masterful producing by Tony Wilson for the Friday Rock Show. Brilliant !! Paul Schwarz.

The Beginning" is a compilation of rare early releases by Mercyful Fate, and if you thought "Melissa" and "Don't Break the Oath" were great albums, you NEED to get this. It consists of the band's first four-song EP (released on Rave-On records in 1982), the three-song broadcast of MF live on the BBC, and a B-side from the Melissa recording sessions (the 1998 re-issue of this disc also contains "Black Funeral" from the early "Metallic Storm" compilation) . Not just a 'where did they start' album, I feel that it is an integral part of their discography, as it shows all of the elements of their style honed to perfection and performed with raw, youthful abandon. Originally published at LARM (c) 1999).
