‘Iron Maiden’ features the band’s early vocalist Paul Di’Anno (who also performed on 1981’s ‘Killers’) and it’s the only Maiden record to feature guitarist Dennis Stratton who exited in October 1980.
Songs including ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, ‘Running Free’ and ‘Iron Maiden’ are still considered classics by Maiden fans to this very day.
‘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 2000 concerts around the globe, to become the biggest and most acclaimed metal band on the planet.
The ‘Iron Maiden’ track-listing is as follows:
Phantom Of The Opera
