So this little beauty came in the post yesterday. Featuring two LPs, and a box set to complete over the coming months, Iron Maiden are starting to roll out their next lot of vinyl re-issues.
These albums follow on from the box set released by Maiden in 2014, which featured the albums from Iron Maiden (1980) to Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988) and everything in between.
The box set featuring the albums from 1990-2015 includes:

Having received my box set in the post, I therefore got my second copy of No Prayer For The Dying, along with my first ever, and long awaited, copy of Fear Of The Dark. Now I need to get a little bit of extra cash for the next two: X Factor and Virtual XI, so do expect a post on these.
All of the re-issued records are being released on 180g black disc vinyl, some for the very first time. As you may remember, all albums released in the post-2000 Dickinson era were only originally released onto picture discs, beginning with Brave New World, until The Book Of Souls was released on black disc.
Up Next: Brave New World, Rock In Rio, Dance of Death, and A Matter of Life and Death in June!
