The Soundhouse Tapes

(EP)

 

Recorded: Spaceward Studios, Cambridge, December 31, 1978

Released: November 9, 1979

Producer: Iron Maiden

 

The very first recording by Maiden, with the exception of the song Burning Ambition on the 1980 Running Free single, this is the only Maiden record to feature the band as a four piece (Dave is the only guitarist).

 

As part of this recording, Strange World was also recored but not included in the final release. However, it was later included in the Best of the Beast compilation album.

 

It is interesting to note that the single is not listed as an official recording on Maiden’s web site and it has never been released as an official Maiden CD.

Purgatory

(Single)

 

Recorded: As part of the Killers album

Released: June 27, 1981

 

Purgatory was one of Maiden's least successful singles and failed to break into the Top 50 in the UK charts. An interesting fact about this single is that the original cover art was withdrawn. The band had felt that it was too high of caliber for just a single and requested a less complex cover be prepared in its place. The withdrawn cover later resurfaced as The Number of the Beast album. Ironically, Purgatory is among the most recognizable and merchandized Maiden art images.

Producers: Iron Maiden, Doug Hall

 

It was never the band's intention to release this album, but the Japanese wanted a live album. This may explain why it does not appear in the listing of releases on Maiden’s own web page. However, it is included in The First Ten Years compilation album – which is an official Maiden release.
