Parlophone Records will issue a very special limited edition 12” vinyl version of Iron Maiden’s iconic self-titled debut album on Friday 9th October. The release honours both the 40th Anniversary of the album, which came out on 14th April 1980 and reached no. 4 in the UK charts, plus National Album Day, on Saturday 10th October – a celebration of the long-player in association with the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA). 'Iron Maiden' was the album that saw the East London band start the journey that has led them over the course of four decades, sixteen studio albums, over 90 million album sales and more than 2,000 concerts around the globe, to become the biggest and most acclaimed Metal band on the planet. It features original vocalist Paul Di’Anno and includes songs such as ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, ‘Running Free’ and ‘Iron Maiden’ that have long been considered classics in the Maiden canon and still feature in many of the band’s live sets today.
