I'll try to keep this list short, but the thing with the N.W.O.B.H.M. movement is that, outside of a few mainstream acts which managed to persevere beyond the movement's age (about '77 - '85), the majority of bands' material was released as singles and EPs. That makes for a lot of releases to track down. With that said, here's where I'd say to start:

Crucifixion - After the Fox Comp. (2019)
Holocaust - The Nightcomers (1980)
Virtue - We Stand to Fight Comp. (2013)
Demon - The Unexpected Guest (1982)
Legend - A Death in the Nursery (1982)
Diamond Head - Borrowed Time (1982)

Of course, there are tons of others, but those are my top picks.

here's a decent playlist of catchy songs (the first 11) and some oddities (the rest):

if you prefer whole albums, "skipping" bands like maiden, def leppard, etc. which made it "out" of nwobhm, i'd say the diamond head and angel witch debuts are good entry points...
