Iron Maiden – The Number Of The Beast – LP

MASTER ALBUM for all lovers of heavy metal! Originally released on 22 March 1982 in the United Kingdom by EMI Records. The recording and mixing of the album had to be completed in only five weeks.

This is the first to feature vocalist Bruce Dickinson and their last with drummer Clive Burr. It is Iron Maiden’s only album to include songwriting credits for Clive Burr, and was the band’s first album to feature writing by guitarist Adrian Smith. In addition, the release saw Steve Harris adopt a different approach to writing, which would cater more for new vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The album’s producer Martin Birch remarked, “I simply didn’t think [former vocalist Paul Di’Anno] was capable of handling lead vocals on some of the quite complicated directions I knew Steve wanted to explore … When Bruce joined, it opened up the possibilities for the new album tremendously.”

The Number of the Beast was met with critical and commercial success, and became the band’s first album to top the UK Albums Chart and reach the top 40 of the US Billboard 200. Q magazine placed the album at No. 100 in its list of the “100 Greatest British Albums Ever” in 2000.

The New York Times reported in 2010 that 14 million copies have been sold and by December 2021 it had sold almost 20 million copies worldwide.
