Details:
The Soundhouse Tapes are the very first recordings of Iron Maiden. This record features three of the original four songs from the Spaceward demo tape which was recorded in one 24-hour session on 31st December 1978. The fourth song of the set, 'Strange World', was not included on The Soundhouse Tapes because the band was a bit unhappy with its recording quality. Consequently, the Spaceward version of 'Strange World' was not released until years later for Best Of The Beast compilation.
Because only 5,000 copies of The Soundhouse Tapes were made, they have become the "Holy Grail" for Iron Maiden collectors. The 7" vinyl E.P. was only available through direct mail order, and were quickly sold out. Although several record companies placed orders for 20,000 copies each, the band decided to refuse, feeling that cashing in at that time would have destroyed the magic of The Soundhouse Tapes.

Released: 9th, November 1979
