Tracklisting & More Information

More Details
This particular EP is one of the most sought after NWOBHM items, with lots of fakes flooding the marking, so I hear you asking, how can I be sure that the item I am purchasing from you is the genuine article.

Well there are a few things to keep a look out for, here are some of the key points.

The sleeve is made from a heavy smooth card, with orange-coloured background with the name "Iron Maiden" on top, a picture of Steve Harris and Paul Di'Anno taken during a concert, and the title "The Sound house Tapes" below, with all three aligned at the center of the cover. It also has flipback's to the left & right with a curved cut-out on the back (please see our image above)

This will only be on black vinyl with a red paper style labels. Writings on the paper are all in black.
The matrix details are etched into the run-out groove as follow:

Matrix Side 1
*EG* SA LYN 7627-IT ROK-1-A - hand scratch

Matrix Side 2
ROK-1-B LYN 7628-IT *EG* SA - hand scratch

Again, see out image above the labels.

The sleeve has some light general wear with some light ringwear & a couple of light creases, but has no rips, splits or any writting.

The labels are clean with very little signs of spindle marks to the holes.

The vinyl has a few light cosmetic surface scuffs but plays without any problems and still sounds amazing.

Overall an excellent copy of this legendary item, must have for any fans collection.
