Iron Maiden’s Piece of Mind Album Anniversary fell this past Sunday. It was release on May 16th, 1983. This was a great record with many tracks that are still included in nay Iron Maiden live set today. It’s also the first record to feature new drummer Nicko McBrain. Also notable is the title which does not come directly from a song title on the record. In fact, Iron Maiden’s perhaps most notable version of Eddie spawns from this album. The single cover for “The Trooper” is one of the most celebrated images in music.
Iron Maiden Piece of Mind is certified Platinum in both the UK and North America.
Piece of Mind is sandwiched between another (2) heavy metal classic albums, as The Number of the Beast released in 1982, and Powerslave dropped to us in 1984…not a bad 3-year run for Iron Maiden, ehh?
