Sometime during the Ram It Down sessions, Judas Priest apparently worked on some songs with noted 80's pop producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman. As far as I can tell, the songs were completed but never released. Does anybody know if anything of these songs has ever appeared, or have any information on these mysterious recordings at all?

From what I'm able to tell, there were three songs recorded but they haven't seen the light of day. At least I didn't see anything on YouTube. Kinda reminds me of how Mother Sun never made it into an actual studio album.

I know one thing I always find intriguing is the Twin Turbos concept and how it would've been received if it had actually happened that way. The bonus tracks they put on the 2001 remasters aren't exactly amazing but there are some decent ones.

old story. there was a feature in classic rock mag a few years back. the songs haven't been released, and is unknown if they got reworked for later jp albums. jp won't talk about them in interviews. the sessions are listed in sa&w's website, however:

I'd love to hear them, but it's not very likely :(
