Last Updated 02/23/2005   The following section represents every vinyl piece I've managed to locate. Vinyl sounds superior to CD's when played on a nice turntable so don't be biased against it...it's great. I believe this section is fairly complete although I'm sure there are more European promotional releases I may not yet know about.   If you have or know of any vinyl releases not presented here, please contact me with the information and I'll add it when time permits. Please include as many details as possible including serial #'s, track listings, and artwork scans.    


Metal Magic 
Label  Metal Magic Records - MMR1283 - USA - 1983
Time Approx 60 minutes
Comments Metal Magic, Pantera first LP release is a self pressed item and is very limited. The Abbott brothers
along with family member (father ?) Jerry Abbott, started the label Metal Magic. This release features
the original vocalist Terry Lee and , although pretty lame overall, features some great guitar work by 
Dimebag. The original singer's voice and pop metal style adopted on the album make it pretty painful
although each successive Pantera release would prove to grow closer to the Pantera we all know and
love today. Expect to pay 75 - 100 dollars for this item if you can locate it and make sure it comes with
the original fan club insert with merchandise offer. I'll provide a picture of the insert soon.

Projects In The Jungle 
Label  Metal Magic Records - MMR1984 - USA - 1984
Time Approx 60 minutes
Comments Projects In The Jungle, Pantera's second private release is , as is the case with all the other earlier 
pressings, very rare and difficult to locate. The band continues down the pop-metal path at this point 
with the second release showing just a bit more aggression. As expected Dimebag's playing is the 
focal point of the LP and he provides some great fret board action. The album still reeks of pop-metal 
although its great to hear some of the earlier material. The LP features the same line up as before 
with original vocalist Terrence Lee . Cover art on this LP is the worst of any of the albums with some 
bizarre interpretation of the song Projects In The Jungle. LP also comes with merchandise /fan club     
insert. Expect to pay 75 - 100 for this one as well.

Projects In The Jungle (White Vinyl Test Pressing)
Label  Metal Magic Records - MMR1984 - USA - 1984
Time Approx 60 minutes
Comments This unusual item is the rarest Pantera piece I've found yet. It's a colored vinyl test pressing for the
LP "Projects In The Jungle". I was unsure of its authenticity. I asked Dimebag at a local record store    
signing and he was amazed to learn that I had one. Supposedly limited to less than 10 copies 
although I've been told rumors that other colors exist. Anyone have info ???

I Am The Night 
Label  Metal Magic Records - MMR1985 - USA - 1984
Time Approx 60 minutes
Comments I Am The Night, Pantera's third private release is , as is the case with all the other earlier pressings,
very rare and difficult to locate. The band finally starts to show so major movement towards a heavier
more aggressive sound on certain tracks. This is definitely the best LP with Terrance Lee. The band is
obviously doing better at this point as the production quality on the LP is a bit nicer than the prior two 
releases and the artwork is even bearable. Front insert included with some great black n white photos 
and contains the Fan Club insert now professionally printed. This will be Pantera's last LP with 
Terrence. Expect to pay 50 - 75 dollars for this piece if you can find one.

Power Metal
Label  Metal Magic Records - MMR1988 - USA - 1984
Time Approx 60 minutes
Comments Power Metal, Pantera's final release on Metal Magic and first with new vocalist Philip Anselmo
shows a major turning point for the band. For some unknown reason, this release took three years
to release unlike the prior 1 album per year. I suppose this was a time when the band decided Terrence
wasn't the vocalist they needed and were probably trying to determine their next move. Phil , a native of
New Orleans , LA. seemed like the perfect candidate to change the bands image. Phil's vocal style and
physical presence gave the band the necessary missing link to move into a new area of music. The 
songs, although a bit pop oriented at times, is much heavier than any of the prior three releases, 
making this my favorite of the 4 earlier releases.

The artwork shows here represents the original artwork to be used for the cover although it was 
immediately banned by most stores, record chains etc, so the "Skull Fuck" picture was used instead.
Trying to figure the picture out. Easy..Some girl appears to be taking a drill bit from behind. ;->

This 2LP limited edition looks identical on the outside but comes with a gatefold sleeve that folds open

vinyl ) . As the sticker in the right hand corner states, "Limited Edition Double-Vinyl with Exclusive

Comments Please see description provided for the album under the CD's section for full details on this release. 
The LP, unlike the CD, includes an insert with all the lyrics printed in normal type font so they're easy     
to read. Based upon the limited time available on an LP, Suicide Note Part 1 has been left off. Weird .
This LP release is supposedly a limited edition according to the sticker on the front.

5 Minutes Alone 7" white vinyl 
Label  Atlantic (Atco) - A8293- Europe - 1994
Time Approx 10 minutes
Comments This 7" single, released in support of Far Beyond Driven, is the only 7" Pantera release in existence.
With the advent of CD's , 7" releases are on their way out in favor of the CD singles on CD. It's really
a shame because the 7" records are cool. This release was also packaged with a selection of Pantera
pins. Not impossible to find although it's a European only release. Features same artwork used for the
CD single.

Planet Caravan Red Vinyl 
Label  Atlantic (Atco) - A5836T- Europe - 1994
Time Approx 17 minutes
Comments This 12" single, released in support of Far Beyond Driven, is a limited edition gatefold sleeve with
red colored vinyl. I'm not sure if a non-gatefold version of this E.P. exists, although I suspect it does,
as this is common practice to release the 12" and then re-release the same single in gatefold/ colored
vinyl. The vinyl is a weird red color and the gatefold sleeve opens up to a picture of all 4 members
with autographs and a message to their U.K. fans. "Thanks for all the support !! You Rule !! We'll 
see you all next year !!"

Walk 12" 
Label  Atlantic (Atco) - B3076T- Europe - 1993
Time Approx 15 minutes
Comments This 12" single, released in support of Vulgar Display Of Power and Cowboys From Hell, is, I believe
the first Pantera 12" E.P. released. The artwork used is similar to the artwork used for the remix CD 
singles "Walk (Cervical)" and "Walk (Biomechnical)". The release also features 2 of the tracks recorded
live in Moscow, 1991. Back cover features 4 cool shots of each band member along with a footnote for 
the live tracks that states "Recorded Sept. 28 1991, live at Moscow Monsters Of Rock in front of a 
crowd of 500,000. Definitely no overdubs!"..

No Pix Mouth For War 12" 
Label  Atlantic (Atco) - ???? - Europe - 1993
Time Approx 15 minutes
Comments This 12" single, released in support of Vulgar Display Of Power and Cowboys From Hell, is, I believe
the second Pantera 12" E.P. released. I know that I had this release at one time although it' s been 
lost, or borrowed and never returned, cuz it's gone now. The cover features 4 great live shots of the band   
with a label in the upper right corner that reads "Super Loud Cut". Can't remember the track listing but I 
hope to find another copy soon.

I'm Broken 12"
Label  Atlantic (Atco) - B5932T- Europe - 1994
Time Approx 15 minutes
Comments This 12" single, released in support of Vulgar Display Of Power, is a limited edition gatefold 12" 
featuring 2 of the remix versions of Walk and Fucking Hostile. The gatefold sleeve has half of Phils
head on each side so when opened shows the complete photo. The inside has a weird lyric motif
with the word "Unscarred" spray painted across the entire thing. Very cool ! This is the equivalent to   
the (2) separate CD singles Part 1 and Part 2.

Comments This 12" single, released in support of Far Beyond Driven, is a promotional only item distributed 
to the media in England. The Rock Ahead cover is very similar for all releases of this type although the
labels often have some cool graphics on them. Fairly rare as quantities are undoubtedly very limited.
Expect to pay 20 - 40 dollars for one fo these.

Heresy Bootleg Picture Disc
Label  Cemetery Records 001 - Germany - 1992 ??
Time Approx 55 minutes
Comments This 12" Picture Disc is the only vinyl bootleg that exists. By 1990, when Pantera became a driving 
force, the manufacturing of vinyl bootlegs was decreased by 95 % making way for the flood of Pantera 
CD's that came out between 1992 and 1994. Vinyl is better than CD and I only hope vinyl returns with a 
vengeance at some point. Great release. Side A contains the entire Foundations Forum 1990 
performance and the B side states "Live in Stuttgart (Germany), "Schleyerhalle '91".
