Iron Maiden's Powerslave is now distributed by Parlaphone part of the Warner Music Group.
The Music is first class having owned it on vinyl since it was first released, however if your fan of Derek Riggs's artwork you will be disappointed with the quality of the printing - with the front and back covers of the booklet and back of the CD tray being very poor when compared to the older EMI editions, lacking sharpness and detail, strange thing is that the inside of the booklet is great. l work in the design/print industry and have not seen anything quite as bad as this for a long time, it does not represent the band or the illustrators work very well it l would say they have scanned an old printed copy. Not the sort of quality l expect from a major record company - it looks like a pirate copy!!!!
The Parlaphone edition really should be withdraw from sale until this error is rectified in future editions.
