Iron Maiden - To Release New "Best Of" Compilation


As posted on the band's website, Iron Maiden will be releasing yet another "Best Of" CD:

"As you guys will have read from our press release, 'the best of' is to help introduce new friends into the world of Maiden. We are not trying to sell this to the legions of our well valued Maiden supporters who probably already have these 'tracks' (and no doubt the entire collection of albums!).

From the amount of tickets sold there are a lot of people coming to our shows this year who won't have seen us before, so this is intended for them as an introduction, similar to previous ones of this nature. As with 'Edward the Great' we will arrange for the front and back cd artwork to be available for you to print free nearer the release date so, if you want, you can have them for your collections."

New fans can download the entire album without charge from http://www.ironmaiden.com as a high-quality audio file (WMA) which is a typically powerful 320 kbps. Fans will then be able to listen to the entire album at their leisure three times before the download expires. The listener is then given a simple option to upgrade and purchase the album as a full traditional DRM-free download (so they can then copy or do as they like with the album)."

The compilation is entitled "Somewhere Back In Time" [cover] with the following tracklist:

01. Churchill Speech
02. Aces High
03. 2 Minutes To Midnight
04. The Trooper
05. Wasted Years
06. Children Of The Damned
07. The Number Of The Beast
08. Run To The Hills
09. Phantom Of The Opera [live]
10. The Evil That Men Do
11. Wrathchild [live]
12. Can I Play With Madness
13. Powerslave
14. Hallowed Be Thy Name
15. Iron Maiden [live]

Maybe that one hasn't been featured on a studio best of but it was featured on Life After Death

Coffee!!
They might have been on best of albums before all of them, but have they ever been on the same best of? I still have no problem with them releasing another best of...if you don't want it then don't buy it, simple as that. Nothing wrong in making a little money and it's not like the put a new song on to make sure we buy it, they even say that the release isn't something new.
