I refuse to buy this Box. What are we talking 150 by itself, 250 with the first two CLASSIC albums in it.
What the hell is going on? You all know the band the songs and the excellent art work, and you buy it again, WHY?
I have been an avid Maiden fan since 1981, I have various LP's CD's and collections, and loads of so called rarities'. These are mine to keep, but the vinyl I don't play...as it special!
I have purchased the first two picture discs from this new "collection". I cut the plastic just to see the disk, it nothing special, normal and lightweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve (of which I have not opened). And above all I know like 99.9% of you...it will never be played, I have to ask Why?
Perhaps EMI looking for something but I don't know, all I know is the whole thing disappoints me.
After all we have had CD collections, And other vinyl Collections, we do not need another! Unless it is special. And this is not!
This collection could have been done so much better and with the cardboard box to, a double heavy weight picture disc album in gatefold sleeve for each MONUMENTAL musical achievement, with the B sides and live tracks.
I think I have to leave it up to you, the whole thing is going mad. And I have to say I expected better for Maiden. I will shot off before i say something I regret.
All I need from Maiden, is a new chuffing album!
Just to say, I think the new British Lion album is first class!
All the best Maidenites,
