Pride and Glory is Zakk Wylde's first self-fronted album. It has more of a Southern rock sound than Zakk Wylde's other albums incorporating the likes of banjo, harmonica and mandolin.

Upon its release, their one and only album was seen as an almost complete departure from the music Zakk was known for with Ozzy, but the album's dominant Southern rock sound proved to remain a prevalent influence on Zakk's own music up to and including the debut Black Label Society album Sonic Brew. Zakk's songwriting skills come to the forefront on the album; there is a great deal of variety and the songs themselves are very dynamic, with a very loose jam-band feel to a number of them, namely "Shine On" and "Toe'n the Line."

Both "Losin' Your Mind" and "Horse Called War" were released as promotional singles with accompanying music videos, whilst "Troubled Wine" was also released as a promo single but without a video.

The album was reissued in 1999 on Spitfire Records with a bonus disc of rare and unreleased material.

Notes[edit]

  • On the original 14-track single-disc Geffen prints of the album, the song "Found A Friend" was track 12 on the record. Apparently on some copies of the reissued double disc set by Spitfire Records in 1999 the song was accidentally deleted off the album, although still listed on the sleeve. Instead, the outro for "Toe'n The Line" had been programmed as track 12. In order to address the error, subsequent prints of the double disc version have had "Found a Friend" included on the second disc. A 2009 reissue on Armoury Records restores the original album's 14-song tracklisting.
  • An unreleased song from the recording sessions entitled "Mother Mary" (a live version of which was performed during Pride & Glory's set at the Donington Monsters of Rock Festival in 1994) later emerged on the debut Black Label Society album, Sonic Brew, four years later. The final version is almost completely different both musically and lyrically from the original Pride & Glory song but both do share the same basic chorus lyrics.
  • "Cry Me a River" was re-recorded after the recording of the original album was complete.
  • "Toe 'n the Line" is faded out. The studio version originally ended the way the band ended the song live.
  • The cover art is a photograph called "Waiting Till the Cows Come Home" taken by Gale Wrausmann, from the Women in American Photography Exhibition in 1985.
